    How do gif avatars work?

    Seriously, everytime I try to add a gif as avatar it says "Remote file is too large."

    It probably means the file is too large but I can't really change the filesize of gifs now can I? This has happened everytime I tried putting a gif as a avatar? I'm not missing anything right?

    You can resize gifs easily here http://ezgif.com/resize
    Though I don't remember what the max. size was >.<

    at the bottom of the each of the slots to upload the image there's rules that the gif must fit.

    The maximum size of your custom image is 200 by 200 pixels or 2.38 MB (whichever is smaller).

    This means your image must be at most 200x200px in dimension for HeightxWidth and have file size under 2.38MB. If it breaks any of these images the gif will break and be resized to the proper size

    Sorry for bringing this back but am I the only one frustrated by trying to get a gif avatar. Every. Single. Gif I try says "invalid file." What's up with that? Even a gif I previous used(http://i.imgur.com/ajpdbNB.gif) doesn't work anymore.

    Is there something i'm missing? It's really frustrating me to no end. :/

    EDIT: Oh my god, I finally did it. Why it never worked before I don't know but know it does.

    I added this gif to be my avatar:

    But when I look at it on the forums it doesn't play, like it isn't even a gif.

    Edit: Nvm, I changed it's size to 150 x 150 and it worked.
