Animated Avatars

I noticed Dr. Rich has an animated GIF for an avatar. When I tried to upload one for myself, the software wouldn't allow me to. Is this a perk only for Moderator Emeriti? :confused:

Yes. Great rewards are given to those who have suffered on behalf of humanity.

Is that similar to 4-F, only much less disqualified?

I think you need the right kind of "GIF" format for it to work. When you download such an avatar, test it by opening it using the File->Open item in your browser. If it animates upon opening locally, it usually behaves itself on this board. But it is kind of hit or miss, so keep trying.

On second thought, this might be a feature that only mods can use - when I tried to update mine, it wouldn't let me do it with another animated GIF.

He needs a lot more than a bar of soap...like a total tongue transplant....right after he gets a brain transplant installation.

BTW...he ain't my gov! I voted for what's her name.
