First one (a gif) worked for me. Presumably the second would too. I don't know why it's supposedly random for dilbert. Try uploading from a different platform.

Try these, for some reason they won't upload as my avatar.
There's no reason I can figure out why some files work and some won't, when they have similar dimensions etc.

I  decided to go with the Asian girl from Deadpool. That way whenever I say something insane/evil you can see a nice Asian lady staring at my text approvingly.

lol the amount of effort being put in to avatars when there are literally < 5 active posters to look at them.

Who logs in from a computer that they can even see avatars?

thanks for your effort fellas but i mostly browse on my phone whilst at work (hence all the re-editing of my messy posts) and i'm gonna let avatars lie back in the hazy nostalgia of the 2000s.

Your mention of it basically brought back a wash of memory about people in teddy bear suits doing the karate kid jump kick.

Does anyone remember that moment in time when everyone had oversized signatures that were basically just one word in the middle? I think everyone started using it as a result of a mod being a Nazi (as is their nature) over a signature.

i had a photobucket account (later a flickr) where i uploaded all my forum avatars and signatures. would have been fun to look back through it. signatures were VERY serious business back then, late-90s/early 00s. i was on a ghost recon forum way before bf2, possibly bf1942 days, and everyone would request signatures from photoshop pros. pretty sure a whole generation of graphic designers cut their teeth making 101 variations of the same forum signature. soldier model! grunge brushes, 12 layers with different layer settings! base font! pixel stroke border!

That sounds accurate. College media design/production mid 00s, it was even small part of web design during one of the lazier days.
