Not a huge deal, I was more curious than anything. I tried to change my avatar to a GIF file to see if it worked on the new site. Once you select the file, in the preview of the picture, the animation works. When you select OK, the avatar on the profile page has no animation. My question is animation possible for GIF avatars? Maybe you don't want that? Like I said, not a big deal...just wondering.

It's possible, but I'm not going to implement it since I find animated avatars annoying. If more people request it I'll reconsider.

Gotcha. Sounds good. Like I said, I thought it would be cool, but definitely is not a big deal. Thanks again.
