it might be too heavy / too large ; check the maximum file size and weight for avatars (you will see this on the avatar upload page). that's often a problem with animated .gifs.

Actually, I'm afraid to see what would do if it did animate! :)

First we get the Kindle Bias on this site, now MR is biased against overweight avatars.

Ah, shut your whinging, fatty. ;)

Brainphart, your avatar reminds me of one of the "monsters" from a couple of Dan Simmons book (but yours is much, much scarier ;) ).

Cheers,
Marc

This nickname was acquired years ago. I was on a restaurant consulting job which required "out of the box" ideas to rejuvenate sales. My plan was approved and a co-worker pinned the name on me. I adjusted the spelling later to create mail accounts and forum nicknames.
