I just saw a buddy list when i looked at someones profile. What exactly does this do? This may be in another thread? Also why is it that moderators get animated icons and we cant!

go to:

"User CP" and update your buddy list

as for the non-moving avatars ... that is an admin settting, not a mod setting ...

This is a list of users you wish to identify as your Buddies. To add a user to your buddy list, go to your User CP and in the left Nav Panel under Miscellaneous, select , type the username you wish to add in the [B]Buddy List blank and click [Update Buddy List]
Alternately, you can click on their username in any post and, from the drop-down menu, click the [Add username to Your Buddy List] link.

Buddies will appear in the Users online list with a + sign following their username.

the moving avatars has been a long discussion....
we all used to have them, and when they updated the board's format. the powers that be apparently turned them off..... I think we've narrowed it down that the people that have not changed their avatars still have the animated ones.

OK, I just tested this earlier today as I connected my back up HDD which had old motion avitars from when I had a program to make them.

I'm really not sure why I could do this and no one else. You have tried with a GIF? I didn't expect it to work but it did......
