I found some new avatars and some of them apparently move. When I go to Edit Avatar, download and submit, a TT Admin screen pops up and says "You may not upload animated images". I guess my chicken will have to go into retirement. Anyone else have this problem?

When I do it (the download and submit) I get a message that says
“Thank you for downloading your animated Avatar!!! Remember the use of Animated Avatars is reserved for special TT members”http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/image.php?u=12&dateline=1144415627 (http://www.tmcowners.com/teamtalk/member.php?u=12)

so I can download animations, but I can't use one for my avatar- the you can't use animations message from vbulletin.

The ability to control uploading of images, including avatars, is something that the site administrator can select for each user group. On this site, they have set the ability to upload animated avatars moderators and admins to "yes" and regular members to "no". The vBulletin Admin Control Panel is kind of arcane, with multiple screens and categories....it's possible that they aren't even aware that animated avatar permissions are set to "no. IIRC, the inability to use animated avatars came after a site upgrade a year or two ago. Of course, it's also possible that they intentionally set it that way to limit bandwidth and storage use for the site. Given the fact that this animated avatar issue keeps coming up, an explanation from TTAdmin would be nice.

This is a vBulletin Administrator control panel that the admin(s) uses to set image uploading permissions. Moderators have very limited capability relative to the actual function of the site and don't have access to this control panel:

Note that the button is permission to upload animated avatars. Those of us that already had animated avatars when the permissions were changed way back when get to keep them, we just can't upload new ones.
