    If I had to guess, the avatar is probably reformatted during the upload process to the forum. It's probable that EggHuevo signed in via Google, and it simply takes the avatar from that account; avoiding the format change.

    Another thing that might be relevant (or probably not...) is that he didn't get the photogenic badge. Meaning his avatar is treated differently in that aspect as well. It's still a mystery.

    Hint: when in doubt, do a reverse image search on Google. :-)

    By the way, I believe most browsers have extensions that can stop gifs from animating. If it gets annoying you could try to get one of those.

    It's going to get annoying around here very ... very quickly with these avatars.

    I for one, will not jump on this wagon!

    I wouldn't call it annoying, but it certainly is distracting when a lot of people in a given topic are using them.

    I...

    I have only just realised that getting a moving avatar was my life long dream all along...

    Or just downsize the window to only show the thread titles - it works for me (because flashing things do bother me) and doesn't spoil anyone's fun.

    It's not just the avatars, the reactions are animated too.

    Now I wish there was a picture by Justin Sweet where the drow from my avatar opened his eyes!

    Some extensions for those who wish to block the animated GIFs

    For Firefox: Toggle animated GIFs, GIF Block

    Toggle animated GIFs works great: "Pause GIFs by default". Thank you, mlnevese! :3 I was worried I wouldn't be able to turn it off.

    Please people this is a PG 13 forum. Use of strong language, flaming and trolling are strictly against the forum rules.

    This is just a friendly reminder for everyone to read the site rules.
