    Hi everyone,

    I've seen a few animated avatars of people's profiles around on BHW, and am wondering why my "animated" avatar isn't working? I'm guessing I would need to be a VIP or something like that...

    P.S I have tons of animated memes if anyone wants them :).

    I think my avatar was working before I was a Donor,

    I just uploaded a .gif image :) Could be a file-size problem maybe?

    The maximum size of your custom image is 100 by 100 pixels or 100.0 KB

    Silly me, it was the file size/dimensions... Resized it and uploaded it, although I might need to change this particular one to a white bg.
