    Animated images in signature picture

    Sooooo I thank "well, if now forums let you to posts animated images on threads, why not having a gif in the signature"?

    However, when I tried, a vBulletin message appears, with the message "You may not upload animated images.". Why we can use gifs on posts but not in signatures?

    Who needs to be profesional when you can make freaking DOODLES?!

    See that weird signature picture? Yeah, I made it. You can have one with that different style in my shop, right here...
    Trust me... it's not shabby...seriously...

    We only started allowing it in posts recently.

    And why didn't you read the rules? It is quite clear that animated Gifs are NOT allowed in signatures or avatars.

    He meant why are they not allowed, any particular reason? The rule doesn't state that.

    It doesn't.

    Nor do most of our rules state reasons - there are further explanations of teh rules in the sticky in Firum Talk, with this one being here - https://forum.supercell.com/showthre...1#post10991900

    But the main reason is that animated gifs are often annoying to many people, and also take up more bandwidth. In posts, it is acceptable because each post is a one-off (except where quoted), but in signatures and avatars it would appear on every post you make, and for frequent posters it would very quickly become exceedingly annoying.

    And the reason I asked why he didn't read the rules wasn't him asking for the reason, it was because he said he tried it.

    I can see why it's not, it would be pretty annoying.
