It may exceed the specifications of avatars on this site. They must be 65 by 65 pixels or 19.5 KB (whichever is smaller).

My avi is an animated gif.

You got me. You would probably have to do it frame by frame.

Here's a site that lets you resize an animated gif. I've used it many times with great success.
