Well said, supermabel1... it is a very bloody annoying image... I have been looking at it for the last ten minutes and now I feel a bit dizzy... but the thing that really annoys about it is that it looks like Bob is trying to throw something away... but that it is a windy day... so the thing blows right back at him... after ten minutes, as well as feeling dizzy, I also started to get a bit board with it... I can't imagine any normal person wanting to help you turn it into a bloody avatar... it's worse than watching something that has strobe lighting or flash photography... it is potentially, very effing dangerous... and I can't condone that.

You can take this and shrink it down to avatar size. Then just cut and paste it.

I would be disgusted if someone gave me an avatar as a gift... I would consider that person to be nothing short of a tight-arsed effing skinflint... folk should always give other folk proper gifts and not crappy, cheap avatars... that is just meanness gone crazy.

Better fix this rule before showing people how to post animated avatars.. :wink:

I'll check to see if the this is enforced. I know there are some folks that have noninvasive gifs as avatars now and there have been others in the past.

Sorry, no gifs for avatars. I double checked with the site admin. Thanks for your cooperation.

I don't understand why we can't have animated avatars. This is a real bummer. If we're gonna be so strict about it can they at least be bigger?

Are they really enforcing the rule now? You were bored, 3LM weren't you? Perhaps you should ask for your old job back....

Well, at least your bunny could run the whole course of its existence, Queenie.

And thus ends the debate on whether thickboy is capable of love.
