    Can anyone whip up an avatar pic for me?

    I have this animated .gif I would like to use as my avatar pic, but I can't figure out how to get it to work. Also it has a white background, I downloaded an editor and tried for about an hour to change its background color before giving up.

    The .gif is attached if anyone is interested.

    I don't understand, the attached gif file has a transparent background! Just upload it and see what happens...

    Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

    As you can see, this is what it looks like when I upload it. White background and no animation.

    It is not the image then, it is this site not letting you use animated gif's!

    Animated GIFs work fine for others...

    I see a non-animated gif attached, that has a white background, not a transparent background.

    When I click on the attached file it opens up a little window with a white background showing the animation. You guys don't see that?

    I'm confused now.

    Me too, as I said all I did was save your attached image and open it with adobe fireworks cs4 and bang works a treat with no white background.

    Re: Can anyone whip up an avatar pic for me?

    So, is there a way to use the super-cool Guile .gif. Or am I stuck with the angry Bison?

    I have uploaded it to my squads website and it works fine, I have used it as my avatar on our site also & it works fine, as soon as you upload it to this site it turns into a non animated white background gif. So I think you are out of luck buddy, unless you can get some helpful admin on here to help you out. Good Luck!

    I had to re-size the image to 100x100 or lower. It was just a bit too big. For some reason it would display the image when it was too big, but no animation.

    I believe the forums auto-resize the pic when they are too large in pixels or file size, I had the same issue with non-animated .png files getting a white background and being changed to a .jpg (which doesn't support animation).

    Mind if I use that for a non-TG forum? Its very nice!

    Just because everyone does something does not mean that it is right to do.
