Default My animated gif doesn't work as avatar?

I notice other people have animated gif as their avatar, yet mine doesn't move. Anyone know why?

Notice my avatar pic, it's supposed to be turning, but doesn't. Why?

Check the file type and size. If it's over 48K it won't run.

I used that website to resize. I entered 65x65, but then this website says:

Your file of 125.8 KB bytes exceeds the forum's limit of 48.8 KB for this filetype.

But the website advatar says: 65x65 or 48.8KB, whatever comes first.

And yet my gif is 64x64.

There is a bug in this website

this site needs an image that is 65 x 65 or less, and 48.8kb or less. both need to be met. if one exceeds the limit, then you are screwed
