    Just select an animated gif as your avatar.

    OK...well i want my current ava but in the animated form from Valleydweller.com On the site it is in two parts, the static body, and the animated head. I dont know how to capture the animated head and keep it as an animated Gif (my current avatar is accually a .gif anyway as this was what i was trying to do in the first place, but i failed)

    if the image isn't animated you might not have saved it right in the first place. you can also copy the url of the image on the other site and paste it into the custom avatar field on this site and it will be uploaded to my server that way.

    I even gave it transparency for ya.

    Funny thing about that image was that it was two images. One static part, and one animated part. Had to put together, make transparent, resize and animate.

    BAH, here's the original png. It's fine as a png but once I export it to gif it gets jaggies so someone else can do the clean up. I've spent waaaaaaaay too much time on this.

    Original large unresized png.

    looks like that one should work. avatar limits are 100x100 pixels and 10KB.
