Hi I noticed someone in the c++ forum who registered in 2014 has an animated gif.

Is this now allowed or is it a glitch in the system?

IIRC, provided it meets the size restriction, animated avatars are not a problem. However, the size restriction is pretty low, so it may be difficult finding a suitable animated avatar.

Many years ago animated avatars were only available to sponsors. They're now available to everyone.

As long as those blasted carpet tiles don't get animated! Bad enough that they're allowed as stills. It's like taking acid without the fun part.

Cue annoying animated carpet gif... Haha just joking.
