When I upload a gif file or link to a gif file for my avatar it's not showing up as being animated. It just shows the first frame of whatever gif I use.

I WANT TO USE THIS GIF AS MY AVATAR

GIF avatars aren't restricted to higher usergroups, it's just that it's not fitting the size limit. If you go to "Edit Avatar" there should be something telling you the maximum filesize your image has to be, and shrink or crop it down so that it fits size limits.

Also, your size dimensions are 130x130 and it needs to be 1MB in filesize. There's sites where you can resize and crop your gifs so it fits the limit, this is one I'd recommend (online-image-editor.com) since that's where I crop and resize most of the gifs I use.

I managed to resize the image, and here try using it now:

http://imagehost4.online-image-editor.com/oie_upload/images/72615734H8870/72722wnVfEbRF.gif

It's 124x114 which should fit your usergroup height/width limit and it's well below 1MB in filesize.

I have another question as well. How do I embed audio directly into a post? I see some people have done it in their signatures. Do I need to upload it to soundcloud or a comparable site in order to do so?

Yeah, although I find the best site is kiwi6, if you use dropbox you may accidentally surpass their 20GB/day bandwidth limit (I've done it before). Once you have a direct link to the song (Ending in .wav, .mp3, etc), use the following code:

url

Just copy/paste it, edit the content appropriately, and it should work for you.

Might as well make it transparent, you know, for aesthetics :t196:
