Unfortunately Animated Avatars are no longer a functional feature at this time.

Jeff M
So, is this something temporary, or will this never be implemented?

No Gifs? I'd call that a feature. now I won't have to block them all with ublock.

Honestly, .gif avatars ceasing to work I would consider a Pro of the Xenforo migration, not a bug to be fixed. Some of the animated avatars I've seen here over the years have been disgusting, others have been irritating but by far the worst are the high-speed ones which I find very distracting when trying to read a thread.

In 2020, I guess we also hate movement, judging by this thread.

Hi,
There are a couple that are pretty annoying.
Probably could be easily solved with a very low 50kb file max :cool:

Would it be possible to re-enable them as they were before and add an option in account settings to disable them from displaying if individual users find them too distracting? I miss mine, was nice and subtle.

Best of both worlds, I think that's a great idea. Hopefully, Jeff will chime in. Saying it's no longer functional at this time is kind of ambiguous.

Heya all,

It is not an option at this time, it is possible it may return with future updates but right now we have some bigger fish to fry.

Why were gif avatars allowed in the first place? They serve as a needless distraction only. If people feel like they need to share something that's moving, they will post it. There really is no need to have animated pictures next to one's name at all times.
