    i thinks its called a GIF image or something like that to have an avatar such as mine(moving), and i like it so i recommend that. i was able to get PJ? and Danls to help me out, so pm them and ask how to make it because it doesnt seem like ur getting much of a response.

    For the record, PJ? actually made the avatar. I just shrunk it to the point where it could be used on this forum.

    Nah, I just meant that I'm not very good at making animated avatars, but I know how to optimize them.

    I don't have much experience with GIFs. but if you use photoshop, save it in png format. Then you won't get artifacts and not much quality will be lost. Also, it usually (for me a t least) has smaller file sizes, which are one of the requirements for an avatar.

    Where do you upload your picture at?
    So it'll be my avatar?
