    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

Is there any way we can upload an animated .gif file for the avatar? I made up a cool one with various BCD396 screens that I thought would look cool and now it won't upload. :confused:

Yes it is.
Apparently beyond a certain point they disabled the ability to use new animated avitars which is why I've kept the same one for quite some time.
Every now and then I see a new one but know that once I pull-the-plug on this one I won't be able to use another.
I believe the overall reason for the restriction was because some users chose some over-the-top animation that really distracted from the thread.
I don't think mine qualifies as that.
