    Well with the new forum software my old animated gif avatar no longer worked. I was looking for a new one with my kids and they chose one for me. I took it down after one member stated "seriously disturbing. It turns my stomach. I have to look away when reading your posts". Then another member quickly came up with a replacement. [/url]

    The avatars are animated if you go to the profile, at least mine is when I go to mine!

    I much prefer the Pixar birds one!

    That pic was used on a website that claimed to be able to compose an accurate picture of your face based on a series of questions (gender, race, country your parents were from, etc). After the survey was filled out, it would load the result -- that picture.

    I like the animated avatars if the action is not too fast. This one I see on another forum and I get dizzy when I see it.

    I saw two animated gifs last night that were both distracting and probably not fit for consumption over here (read: nekkid women).

    Well, why don't you spoilerize them and let us judge how appropriate they are? (We'll get back to you in a week or so...)

    Heh. But, it was worth it, though, right?
