  1. How come I can't upload a gif file well below the avatar size limit? Even when frames are reduced unless the gif resolution is very smol it won't let me use it as an avatar. Are there other restrictions I should take into consideration?

  3. It is below 250kb. 186kb I believe. Frame limit or resolution limit?

  4. What did you do to it to make it smaller? I resized my avatar in GIMP using the scale tool and now it's usable.

  5. it is a frame thing. If you use like 9 frames outta the gif regardless of size (250) it works. Vs higher frames not working well below the size limit. Dunno why but eh it doesn't matter.

  6. Don't bother trying, i was going to use a porn gif (it's cropped, nothing explicit on image) on my avatar but realized the animation won't play so i quit.

  7. Nothing personal, but anyone who spells small as "smol" needs to be taken out back and summarily shot.

  9. I think the upper limit for gifs is around 128 kb for some reason. It's been like that for a while. I'd recommend https://ezgif.com/'s optimization tools to work around the limitation. Reducing the color palette can cut a surprisingly large amount of data off the gif without much of an effect on the picture.

  11. How about this? It's 97 kb
    defintely not a loli.gif
    You can also cut down on a lot of data by opening it up in Photoshop or GIMP and removing the background on everything but the first frame, since the artifacts that show up in it can take a ton of data to show something completely unwanted.

  12. What I was tryina say is 250kb limit is peanuts and the gif format has some unseen rules about frames and shit.

    Also she looks like she is vibrating.

  13. Methinks null doesn't like gif avatars very much. I don't know what's going on with gifs, because mine has 11 frames and 126 kb and I could upload it. Another one was 13 frames and 200 kb and i could upload it. Yet a 21 frame one I had before that needed to be cut down to 76 kb. With consistency like that I'd guess a crystal ball is involved somewhere in allowing gifs as avatars.
