Animated Avatar?

I'm not really sure if this is the right place to post this, but "Ask A Question" seemed more oriented towards Stencyl questions, not forum ones. (Shoot me if I'm wrong.)

How does one go about getting an animated avatar? Jon has one, and I can't think of anyone else who does right now, but I'm pretty sure there are some...

I haven't tried to upload one, but I would guess that it's an animated gif.

I was wrong. But Jon didn’t say how he manually made his animated avatar.

It means he manually uploaded his avatar to the server, not through the forum's avatar settings. It's a perk of being Jon.

So this means it’s impossible (unless you’re Jon)?

I think I remember a thread from a loong time ago where they decided animated avatars were a distraction because some of them can be annoying ...so they won't allow them.

I agree. I've seen plenty of forums where everyone has an animated avatar, and they can be a royal pain.

Yeah, I guess I could see how that would be annnoying.

Okay, thanks for that guys. I had a feeling that only Jon had one because he was Jon. Oh well.

Actually, I found another user with an animated avatar other than Jon, Cyclone.

So to have an animated avatar, it has to include Kirby. Good to know.
