    Editing Profiles and Avatars (Revisited)

    I saw the previous post here about one of the members concerns for being able to use avatars.

    Since this was my concern as well but being the last post I saw was placed by the administrator stating that they would be enabled; I was hesitant to place my post here for the sake of being redundant and figured I'd give it some time.

    But it's now April 1, 2007 and I still am having a problem with the upload of avatars. I have always had the options available to me so I don't believe it's a matter of enabling them but whenever I attempt to upload my avatart I receive the message:

    "You may not upload animated images."

    Why is this? I have seen others having animated avatars in the forum. Is this some special privilege of only a selected few???

    Or does longevity of being a member actually affect the types of avatars one may upload?

    Thanks.

    P.S. Aside from this concern I thought it only right to add that I think your forum is a great asset to the Database community!!! Keep up the good work.

    Well animated avatars are another matter. They really do annoy other users. No one on the forum has permission to use them, regardless of stature on the forum.

    Is it the annoyance factor, or because of legal or bandwidth concerns? Since the avatars are so small anyway, it seems like a moot issue.

    There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies, and benchmarks...
