Does any one know how to make an animated avatar?

i havent done one in a long time so maybe there is a new better way, but the last one i did was in after effects and was basically an animated .gif

Tried that for some reason it doesn't work.

Does your anim gif work if you open it directly in a browser window

Well, I opened it on my desktop and it work but it did not work in my account here.

But does it work in a browser? The desktop doesn't count.

Just tried and yes it does.

If it works in a browser but not the forums I guess it's been turned off for everyone? Otherwise I'm stumped -

Nah I was just looking at someone's avatar a moment ago that is animated. It's a LW logo bouncing over a yellow and black core sign. As a matter of fact now that i think of it Matt's avatar is also animated, it's a little clip of Dirk The Daring from the Dragon's Lair game.

Mine doesn't work either! grrrrr!

I think it may be a server glitch, I just saw someone else's that I know was animated before and now it's not. Another glitch is that the search engine isn't working. Looks like it's time for NTs web guys to get to work.

Are you uploading it to this site to use it?

If so try hosting it on another site like flickr.com or such and then link to it here thru the avatar options.

That should work.

OK, let me try that.
