Trouble with the .gif files Answered

When you are typing up comments and such, you cannot view the gifs, so i typed a comment, and my display picure is a gif, people cannot see it move. Is it my problem or...? Tell me if you can see this animating gif and in the comment I posted!

Yes, the avatar images are stationary when you post comments, but you can see the animation through your "You" page. This is true for all animations.

You see a few people who have used animated or transparent Gifs, and they only work in certain places. Using them as a main images does what you observe. So yes it it worth keeping this, but I doubt many people will bother to look for it if they find this out for themselves.

Your avatar is stationary, but the version you have posted in your OP is moving.

And damned annoying.

All that flashing!

Fortunately, I use FF, so all i have to do is hit Esc to freeze an animated GIF.
