Avatar Gif?

  1. I tried setting my avatar to be a .gif file, but it isn't animated, only a single image. I've seen it done before on this same forum, so I was wondering is there some fancy technique to get it to work?
     
  2. The gif needs to be under 204kb in filesize (and 200px in width)! Otherwise the avatar auto resizes!
     
  3. 204kb? What a strange number. Usually it's a multiple of 8 that gets used. So the auto-resizing of an avatar stops the gif working? That'd make sense I suppose. Time to crack open MS Paint then...
