    I think it's because the picture size is small, small, small. It's a really really old gif.

    I did a newer Avatar for mine. You can actually make it 200x200 pixels like I did in photoshop. If anyone needs help resizing their avatars or making them, let me know by sending a PM. I wouldn't mind helping out if anyone needs it! ;)

    Just making sure...it's okay to use any internet picture for my avatar? even if I don't know any copyright issues?

    I am pretty sure you can use any kind of picture for your avatar. I think most the people on MC do...or any other forum for that matter. It's just for your personal use.

    New avatar for me. I went to all the trouble of making the background transparent so he'd look like he was all dynamic and bursting out of the frame, and he ends up in a little white box anyway. Phooey.

    I get the impression from earlier posts that animated GIFs won't animate as avatars. If so, phooey. I'd love to 8-bit this image and animate it in the style of the original Move Your Feet video.

    You might want to save the file as a .png file and then upload it to see if this works. It works like a .gif file and leaves the background of your avatar transparent.

    I think the box is part of the board's format, as it has a blue border. I'm not too worried about that; I could have seen it coming, in fact, if I'd looked closely at the board before making my icon.

    I'd rather have GIF animation, but I'm guessing that's a no-go.

    What's the new icon size? My Red's all pixely now :p

    Redsonga has a point, I'm going to change my avatar (first time in 2 years, heh) to Puppyduck soon enough but I'd like to know the new size.
