without the use of imageik... I asked my serverguy and they said they can only do gd2 bcause it puts more server load. I have a shared? Is there any other option? I dont get why its animated on the profile page but in the postbit its not animated.. But for vb they had animated avi in post bit without the imagik.. Now that isnt a reason to leave xenforo.. but its like a pain in the back of my neck that i wont ever be able to have a animated avatar unless i go to a dedicated server... or vps. Such a great software and vb does one thing better.. animated gif avatars..
