Yeah, they're not animating.
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.
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.Hi,
Yep simple show animations setting on or off.
