    I'm sure this will get moved, but I'll get the most visibility here. My avatar is within the space limits (110x86) yet it won't play, it just shows a still image. I may be a computer dummy and just don't know what I'm doing. A little help here please?

    Are you saying your avatar is supposed to move?
    I tried one like that yesterday and it wouldn't work either.

    And to answer your question:

    I don't know!!!!!

    Check the extension of you file..it's like .avi or .mp3 ...or something like that. Then make sure the site supports the file type. mine is a .gif

    "Note: The maximum size of your custom image is 110 by 110 pixels or 34.2 KB (whichever is smaller). "

    Is it over 34.2 KB?

    When I try to open your avatar with the Gif Movie Gear program it says "Not a valid gif file". Over9.5's avatar opens fine and shows all the frames.

    Too bad we can have the sound come on as you pass the pointer over the avatar. Oh Snap, that would be funny.
