For those interested, here is how to get an animated avatar.

First you have to find yourself an animated avatar.
Almost any moving picture you find on the net can be used.
Find one on the net.
Go to a favorite band site and find one, or do a search for an "animated avatar" or an "animated gif".

When you find it, RIGHT-CLICK on it and "SAVE AS" to your harddrive.....

To use it on the message board:
Go to your USER CP tab located near the top left of the screen.
Go to EDIT AVATAR.
Click on the USE CUSTOM AVATAR button.
BROWSE your harddrive and find your avatar.
Then upload it (usually by double-clicking on the picture).

If it is too big to fit on the Y&T message board, then do this:

go to:

http://www.gifworks.com/cgi-bin/gifworks.pl?com=transfer_open


First, upload your GIF (avatar) from your computer.
Then EDIT and RESIZE the pic to 100x100 or less.
The file may still be too big in "byte" size.
If it's still too big, try going to OPTIMIZE and then REDUCE COLORS. Keep reducing the colors until you get the file to a maximum of 19,500 bytes.
Sometimes taking so much color out affects the pic too much, but sometimes it doesn't.

Enjoy

"But some girls don't like it that wide." And I'm not talking about myself either. Ask my wife and she'll tell you I'm well hung...for a young buck squirrel that is! :o

I just haven't found many that I really like. Other than this one, of course, which I stole from someone on dt.net. I've asked if Terr could make me one from a cool idea I had, but we'll see...

Well, as far as I'm concerned, I now have the end-all-be-all of avatars, so I'm satisfied. Darth Archie approves.
