The forum software reduces oversize images to fit the avatar size limitation automatically. Reducing it kills the animation.

I think it is still not working...   :(

If you make it small enough it will work

Yours works if I open it in another tab. So I think the avatar resizer is still getting you.  I don't know what the max avatar size is.

There is also a file size restriction, set by admin. Yours is a photo with lots of frames so it could be too large file size. Just guessin..

Reloaded it and it seems like it's working again.

Still not working here.. Can anyone else see it?

Maybe it is cached in your browser?

I tried it and it worked. The 100x100 pixel file is only 33.2KB.

I PMed the one I used to you. Probably same as the one you tried...
