    Default You may not upload animated images!

    Why not!?
    It's cool!
    And if they are smaller then 100x100?
    Please allow it.
    I have a good one.

    Slows the forum down. Would you rather have a nice fast forum or a really bogged down slow one? I know what I would rather have

    It also uses up more bandwidth which costs more money for Diablo.

    Animated gifs are usually movie/tv/3d clips 1Mb+. People don't realise what this does to others who are on slower connections, if you want to know well it has to load your image before the rest below will load on some browsers meaning a hefty wait for some people. Animated GIF's are normally annoying and distract your eye from the content itself.

    There was 1 member who had a animated signature of The Dark Knight and it was 3.2mb not too long ago!!
    I'm a bit mental.

    I was actually talking about avatars, i have a avatar which is animated and i believe around 500kb I understand why it's not allowed, to bad, but animated avatars are quite cool imo

    500kb. So every 2 users = 1Mb bandwidth (thereabouts). How many people you think would view in that a month?
