Why not?  Just curious.  

I think it would be sweet.  I agree with not allowing pictures in sigs and all that, but animated avatars are harmless!

As much as I like animated GIFs, I've gotta vote no on 'em as avatars as well.  Just too damn distracting for my ADD and MTV riddled brain.

I think a thread of animated gifs is more than enough.

For avatars, if I were to get a vote, I'd say 'please, no'

That's hilarious, depward.

But put me in for NO!.  It's like those animated inline ads. My eyes hurt enough from normal reading much less trying to avoid animated distractions.

Hmmm... no.

I've seen a few I thought I'd love to have - and about a million I wished I'd never seen even once.  Besides, it would likely bring the General back...  :shock:
