Are they avatars? I'm sure this was the desired effect that the devs intended. Although they are dynamic they won't display all the frames and pull the first frame only in the postbit area. I'm not 100% as it might have been changed so a staff member or one of the devs would need to clarify on this.

I just did some testing. Animated avatars work fine, but the animation is only shown on the user card and on the profile page. A single frame is used for all other occurrences, like inside of threads.

It seems that the animation is restricted to the user's profile.

Actually, you'd find a lot of people like that it doesn't let animated gifs into the page. :) It isn't a distraction when you're trying to read posts (which really it should be all about when you're viewing a thread). At least on their profile (and I believe the member card?) it's animated just fine.
