How come animated gifs don’t work for avatars any more?

Eat the food, use the wrong verbs, and end up getting charged double.

the reason is because i am manipulating the image once it is uploaded. an image is uploaded and then in the teaser i make it square and 85×85, for the buddy list i make it square and 65×65, for the profile picture (once you click on it in a profile) is the full large image.

because i am doing stuff like resizing and cropping on the fly, it does not maintain the animated properties…

was the last one you uploaded a png as well? i noticed yesterday that the site does not seem to like png images for some reason. can you try a jpg and see if you still have the problem?
