    I am ignoring personal messages about the avatar until an admin actually addresses me on the issue.

    When the rules were changed disallowing animated avatars a small number of members who were already using discrete animations the permission was grandparented.

    Re: User with Animated Avatar

    This is addressed in the Forum FAQ:
    Why can't I use an animated gif as my avatar?

    In the past (up to sometime near the end of 2005) users were allowed to use animated gifs as avatars. This ended when there was a sudden wave of really distracting and obnoxious flashing, gaudy avatars. (Honestly, can you concentrate on information when looking at animated avatars like these?) Rather than make a long list of what is an isn't acceptable for animated avatar usage and then forcing the staff to monitor and police their use it was decided that they would be banned altogether. Those users who had appropriate animated avatars at the time were allowed to keep them and so you may see a small number of them floating around the forums. If/when those users decide to change their avatars they will not be allowed to replace the current animated gifs with another animated avatar but will have to choose an regular non-moving picture like the rest of us.
