I’ve noticed that there are a very few people who have animated homepage images, I thought it’d be cool to have one, so I made a very simple one and then realized that I’m not allowed to use a .gif file as a homepage image. My question is; is it possible to have animated homepage images? Or is that only for a special few people? Or was it allowed in the past? If it is allowed, how do I go about doing it?

You can use JS to animate an image instead of using a GIF if that is the problem getting in your way.

As for animated avatars on here, they were phased out some years ago.

Off topic: Probably you’ve also noticed that several authors also have animated avatars :) It was indeed allowed in the past but now you won’t be allowed to use one :)

Back on topic: Steve (Australia) is correct, you can use an animated PNG ;)

@Novadust – I believe the OP was referring to the homepage (profile) image. There’s no way of using JS there ;)

I always find myself spending at least 30 minutes on your profile looking at your animated cover :shocked:

You were one of the people that I was talking about, you have an animated gif as your profile cover… How?
