How does one post an animated GIF as your avatar on NintendoLife? Or in general on the interwebs for that matter? I guess I just might be a technology dinosaur. ._. If anyone has a link to where I could acquire this info, that would be awesome. Google just didn't help.

@Mully: what image are you trying to use? NL avatars are 60x60 pixels, and the system enforces a 64kb limit on animated GIFs (otherwise it winds up downsampled into a JPG, which does not support animation).

I'll have to check out the dimensions and get back on that. It's an animated 8-bit Super Mario Bros 2 GIF that I have saved to Photobucket.
