Worried over nothing. This is 2012 not 2002. I have been in forums with tens of thousands more members than this one, many who had animated avatars and there were no problems. If your pc can't handle gifs you need an upgrade. The servers will be fine.
Mine is animated, but not in that too-fast-so-it-makes-you-cringe sort of way... I wonder how many people have even noticed?
And I made it myself! Next, I'll make an animated GIF of me patting myself on the back.
What do you guys n girls think about my avatar and signature?
[OT] @Lloyd68: I wanted to say it long ago: yours is the best avatar ever [/OT]
