    I just discovered this today as I was about to change my avatar to an animated gif of the xbox 360 logo.

    This is trying to save it as it was on my computer.

    And this one is when I uploaded it on imageshack and used the url.

    At least 300 KILOBYTES would be best. I mean, KBs aren't that much at all, considering it's an animated gif...

    Not sure about that, an avatar is nice, but I find those animated images very distracting and ultimately very annoying in most of the cases. Besides, all those kBytes are adding up.

    I think the current size is fine...

    Resizing doesn't do good. It's the animation. Funny thing is I found the animated gif off a profile on the zunescene forums, and since I own an xbox 360, it would be cool to put it on here... It is nearly impossible to find another smaller size anywhere online.

    I think the main reason to keep avatar sizes down is so that it doesn't take a long time for pages to load due to large avatars.
