For a while i get that message for trying to upload gifs as avatar (before that i was able to upload without trouble).
Image i tried to upload fits all allowed parametrs.
I even tried to upload one another's user moving avatar - still get that message.

Wondering why?

There was a post the other day regarding uploading of animated gif avatars and admin was looking into it and said it could be done. Dunno whether he adjusted the function or something....... something went wrong.....

Intresting theory. Maybe thats a "spiderman" thing? Power need responsibility. More advanced more restrictions :)

These are the requirements and restrictions in the site rules, is your avatar within those limits?

Avatars
Maximum Resolution: 150px Wide / 250px Tall
The Smaller The Image Both In Resolution & File Size, The Faster People Will Be Able To Load It. Let's All Use Optimal Images. That Means No 3MB Animated GIF Files And No 1600x1200 Images That You Let Get Auto Re-Sized.

I'm aware of the avatar rules.

What I tried to upl;oad just now was only a mere 14kb animation at 150 x 150. But ever since , I couldn't upload an animated gif.

Sorry for making unnecessary user but i had theory and it proved a little.
Something must be with "group" permission because Newbie and Junior Members can upload animated.
