I'm having some avatar trouble. I'm trying to have an animated gif as my avatar. I've made it, re-sized it with GIMP so it's up to TrekBBS standards and even uploaded it to photobucket, but whenever I try to set it as my TREKBBS avatar, the animation is lost. Does anyone have any advice on how to post it here animated? If I send it to someone else can they set it up for me?
I'm also wondering why there's all this talk about avatar hosting in this thread when the only available option in the control panel about avatars seems to be uploading it from one's own computer. It would be a lot easier if I could link the gif from my photobucket since uploading directly from my computer doesn't seem to be working.
