I tried to add an animated gif after my 2 existing sigpics (said animated gif =and the system said the file was too big (grump.) (BTW a certain "Mew" assured me the ban on animated gifs is only applicable to avatars. Maybe it should be sigpics too (?) as they function similarly to an avatar pic. (I assume the ban has to do with not wanting to host unnecessary filesizes: an animation in 1 post (or a few, if it's quoted) is one thing; hosting a big file on every post of a given user would inflate the forum's volume of data without content to show for it.) I had previously assumed the ban was for aesthetic reasons: that animations can be annoying, and seeing the same animation constantly could get very annoying.
