• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    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:

I used to have an animated avatar and it worked fine. Then I changed it to something else. When I tried to change it back to my original avatar with the animation, I got a message saying animated avatars aren't allowed.

How come it used to work but now it doesn't?

I think Mr.B got a little tired of all those distracting doo-dads and made an executive decision to discontinue this feature.
I noticed this too , the only animated one I have now is in my profile and I ain't touching it !
If people would use discretion and not have Vegas-style glitzy flashing junk , or offensive material , I'm sure that it would still be allowed ,but then again . . . we don't want things to look too cheesy around here , right ? :roll:
Your former avatar was pretty harmless.

It doesn't work because a new option was implemented in Vbulletin which allows us disallow new ones from being uploaded. Many here absued the "feature" with distracting inappropriate avatars.
