Hyper animated avatars are not even allowed on most forums.
MrCrowley has changed his avatar a few times in the past week, which was quite annoying if you ask me... (Hope he reads this )
Avatars aren't there to try and be funny,
Indeed. The signature is a better place for that. And also there, animations are not appriciated.
GIF's exist to show a moving diagram of a valve or loading mechanism and everything else is abuse!
