How did you manage to load in your gif avatar?

Green Baron,
I checked the size of your gif avatar and it is 16K more than the 6K required....how did you do it?

You are supposed to be posting and moderating, not poking around checking out people's avatar :no:

Err .. because I am the admin ? :giggle:

Seriously, I don't know. Maybe because I link it from my photo hosting site so it does not occupy space on the forum and thus is not subject to the size restriction. I have to check.

Confirmed. My avatar icon is not on the forum server. So you can use a bigger avatar if you first upload the avatar to a photo hosting site like Photobucket or Flickr and then provide a link instead of picking the avatar from your computer.
