    I don't think you can, but I could be wrong. I think we don't allow it for safety and censorship reasons.

    Ah, okay then. I wasn't sure. That was just an educated guess, and I haven't found anything to prove otherwise yet.

    Okay, I found out that GIFs don't work for avatars.

    I posed this question a bit ago and the response from staff members was "We don't see why not but... we're not sure...." :D

    Anyways, like @Duke Groundrunner stated, my result was that it worked... but only when viewing my profile page. Didn't animate on any other pages. Suppose I could try adding one again to see if whatever the issue was has been "fixed".

    EDIT: Tried the gif again, doesn't seem to work.

    I think it would be a good idea for the site to be modified for those to be displayed.

    The forum software doesn't allow it, for whatever reason. We do periodic updates to the site, so each time those occur maybe give it another shot.

    I think if we can just upload the image address it will work.If we upload a picture from our computer(a .gif image)it will not work.

    @Viral Hide has already addressed it that he does not want GIFs to be used as they distract from the content in threads.
