    Nope. They're annoying, tacky and it would be terribly difficult to fit within file size constraints.

    They are distracting to the reader.

    May I include that animated avatars are immoral and sinfull in Thunderfall's Church :p ;).

    For someone who hates animated avatars so much, you seem to like posting them.

    What? You're gonna make animated avatars for all of us? Cool...
    I do admire your dedication to this website though if you did that. :p

    I think we should just allow an animated Perfection...I think that would be enough to satisfy us all.

    OK, it's not fair for the epileptics to have such an avatar as I made. So I made another one. :D

    No, since people tend to have very bad taste when it comes to creating an animated avatar.

    No, for reasons already mentioned: annoying, distracting etc. Forum performance is all that matters.

    The only people that I am in favor of having an animated avatar are the mods and TF.

    Otherwise, no.
