    I find so many funny avatars that have motion in them, how can I use them as my avatar? Everytime I try and save one or use one, it just stays still.

    You have to save them as animated gif's.

    Are you talking about Phlabibit's? His is good, and he changes his often and they are always good. Plus he appears to be a Red Sox fan, which obviously means he is intelligent.

    I really don't know how to do that. where is that option when you save? I have .gif, but I see nothing about animated.

    Mine doesnt move - you must mean someone else.

    I would also like to know exactly how to do it though. Does it require a certain application that not everyone may have? Not everyone at RHP are software experts.

    You (Pocket Kings) could sure do some funny things with your avatar by making it animated! Take it easy Fred! Watch the hands!

    Animated avatars must be exactly 50x50.

    If they are not, they are froze on the first (or last?) frame.

    I do not know how to resize. Even when I save it, it is frozen in 'my pictures'.
