Gif avatars?

It really bugs me how we can't use gifs as avatars. Most websites like this allow such, I mean, Why not?

I sort of like it this way. Gifs are cool for icons I do it sometimes on other sites but same time too many gifs going all at once can cause huge lag. I have that issue on ChickenSmoothie.

I like it the way it is. I think gifs being able to be in sigs is enough.
Ping me please!

I guess some people would think it'd be "funny" to put a seizure gif as their avatar. I mean, that's what I'd personally be worried about. Don't get me wrong, I like gif avatars! I do understand why they're not allowed though.

I agree! i was originally gonna add something like that to the post but then i forgot :<
because furvilla is full of anti-furry trollers and people who send hateful messages anonymously, that's not too farfetched. Maybe there could be an option to disable gif avatars and only show a still frame?

The best solution would be an option to block gif avatars e.g only show one frame of them

From my understanding the reason GIF avatars aren't supported is because of the way the forums are set up, so it's mostly an issue with the code structure of the forums in what they can and can't support to keep the forums running smoothly rather than a case of what the admins think is appropriate to allow
