    Is there a way to keep 96x96 animated avatars from converting to a jpg in posts?

    The software used to resize the images doesn't support .gif (with multiple frames) resizing.

    The original animated .gif is only available on the member card and in profiles.

    I'm just curious why it is resizing a 96x96 to a 96x96. Figured that would be a way around it as it was with a few other forum software. My members tend to complain about anything they can and animated avatars not working in posts is their latest ploy.

    Is there a workaround?

    I can see the reason for a lack of animated avatars here at XenForo, I fully support that. It is odd however to not see support for the allowance of animated avatars on the customers end of the software should this be their decision.

    Either way this chat has led me to a no-man fix. Not the best fix but it works :)
