Not sure if I'm hitting an unspecified size limit, but none of the animated avatars I've tried recently work. They're animated on the preview screen when you upload them, but nowhere else.

That's likely a feature, or just a setting somewhere. Will look into it a bit when I can.

This issue may be related to the type of image processor we use.

We may be using PHP GD processing, and never set back up ImageMagick since the last server update.

GD does not support resizing images with multiple frames, so you'll only see the first frame.

We never really used animated avatars on the site though have we?

The only time we used animated avatars was part of The Maul when tormenting users. I really don't want to support them either.

I didn't think anyone still used GD :p

I thought animated avatars worked at one point... might've been on the vb forums though.

Yeah I don't think we've had animated avatars (which can be annoying when its overused) for over a decade if at all.

I don't think we're going to start now.

Yeah, confirmed.. It was 2009 when they were last around, and I believe it was tied to premium membership as was "egging" a person's avatar at the time. Both needed ImageMagick (which has its own set of security issues the last few years).

There is no such stock option to tie animated avatars to custom usergroups (i.e. premium membership) in xenForo software at this time.

I think it would be a cool perk for premium members, but I understand not wanting to swap image processors.

Yeah, we'll monitor the ability to tie it to a usergroup...

A Jason animated avatar would make this website better. Maybe Jason cutting off a head or something.
