It should work great if you reduce the size to 100 x 100

You should be able to use it, in user CP, edit avatar, upload from your computer.
Mine is a .gif

Edit: Good point Doc, I missed that when I looked at the properties.

An animated avatar cannot exceed 100 x 100 pixels. Yours is too big. I've resized it here Free Online Image Editor

Name:  oie_train4.gif
Views: 2628
Size:  12.9 KB

Briefly tried as my avatar, and it does animate.

Hey guys, I want to ask something. Although I have an avatar, I cannot see it throughout the blog. Like whenever I post something my avatar does not show up. Do I need to reach some certain level so that it starts showing up? Thanks :)

My Avatar is a scene from Lake George NY, and a tour steamboat. Lake George is in the Adirodack Mountains, in NYS, south of Montreal.
