Animated GIF avatar no longer allowed?

Hello everyone.

It's been a while since I've been on here and today I went to upload an avatar that I made. It's a simple animated GIF that alternates between the pictures of my 2 cats. It's 100 X 100 and 19KB but whether I upload it from my computer or hosted on another site, the upload fails.

Thanks for your help

I like the "switching" cats...I wish I knew how to do that!

It did the same thing with my avatar photo but it appeared anyway. I guess there are a few kinks in the system still.

Susan, it just takes the right software. I used Adobe Image Ready which is part of Photoshop. There are many pieces of software that can make animated gifs but none of them appear to be free.
