    I'm having trouble with my avatar, I switched it to a picture of Murky the baby murloc, but it's supposed to be animated. Could you tell me how to make it animated?

    Is it too big for the avatar requirements..? The server may have removed the frames from it to allow it to meet the requirements...

    Did you resize it before uploading it?

    A very ugly version here. Basically it is much less smooth (it has a quarter of the number of frames) and 80 colours instead of 255 (256 with transparency). I can't do much about it because the GIF is a large GIF and it is very hard to compress a GIF, especially an animated one.*

    Haaa. I knew it. =/

    That should work though...I hate dealing with GIF's that are animated. :/

    Looks like a ****ing murloc on crack o_O
    Is it possible for you to slow it down a tad? If not, than I'm fine with the still frame I have.

    If memory serves, it should go a bit slower when you actually upload it...
