I’m not sure if this is where I should put this. If it isn’t, just move it to the appropriate place.
Anyway, my question is… How do you get an animated avatar like @parlance’s? I had an animated gif(nothing much, just Christmas lights blinking) that I tried tp put as my picture and it just appeared as a still of the first frame.

Can’t anymore, Joe got rid of the feature to link moving avatars due to lag.

We’re able to upload gif avatars, but they don’t move for some reason. Wonder if a mod added a GiF avatar, would they’re gif avatar move?

Aww, what a shame.

How does @parlance still have an animated avatar?

Thanks for notifying me of this fact.

(This was a limited time thing, I can’t change my animated avatar. This is a linked avatar which is an impossiblity now. This was due to lag brought on by gifs)

I thought that GIF avatars were still allowed if they were less than a certain filesize.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016, 2017.

I have an account here, where I upload pictures and then post the direct link on whatever post I need the picture for.

That’s true, but I like having an account so I can easily find a photo again if I need to reuse it.

I just use the “Attachments” tab at the bottom of the posting box, drop the picture into the second box that opens beneath, and press upload.

There is a way to opt out of mentions for people who aren’t a fan of them

1. Go into your profile

2. In your profile, click the options tag.

3. It should already be in Global options but if not, go to global options

4. Click the Opt out of receiving Mentions notifications box, it is the first option.

5. Click the update global options button and it should save from there.

Thanks, @Starr Shine?! I added these steps to this post: https://www.beatlesbible.com/f…..s/#p117503

I also added a link to the @ name change directory to that post.
