Animated Avies neither post nor work...

07/23/16 5:13 PM GMT
In the last few years (@ least over 5), I have noticed that whenever I post a .GIF animated avitar (and I make sure it is very much under the allowed pixel and byte size), I get only the all-too famuliar "Small Square X" in the avie space, and I used to be notorious for posting animateds...Other members' older avie post animations (including some of mine) always work, but I only see a few new ones that show up animated, otherwise I see the same thing as when I post a current animated...I don't have any sort of problem when I post a stationary (also under the allowed pixel & byte size)....Does it have something to do with server space, or maybe whererever the information is distributed from caedes central to terminal locations?

Another artist asked this question not too long ago & *caedes responded that it was his personal choice not to program the server to accept them.

*caedes has stated before that he really does not like animated avatars.

Hope this helps!


Here is *caedes response from 4.8.16

I think I've answered this question some time earlier in the past 10 years, but I understand if it needs to be refreshed. It is to some degree a personal preference that I don't want to see flashing animated gifs on the site. If it takes more work for me to allow something that I don't want in the first place, then I'm unlikely to do it. This is not a personal slight against those who would like animated avatars, just a difference of opinion.

"Pharaoh Speaks" ... No more arguments, then... Thanks for the heads up on that...
