Do I need UG plus to have a moving avatar

What's up.
I asked this in the Pit and got varied responses and was redirected here by Hydra, the bastard (jk )
Is it true that I need UG plus to have a moving avatar? I tried uploading a GIF and it didn't work.
Is there anyway around UG plus?

Are you really that gullible that you can't tell when you're getting trolled? Dang man, that's pretty sad.

Okay serious response, no. You just need an even sized .gif.
And I don't think UG's automatic resize works on .gifs. At least not for me. So resize it yourself, save it to your computer and upload it yourself.

Nope, that doesn't work.
When I upload it from my computer it just doesn't move, when I try to input the URL it says that it can't find the URL/there's no picture there.

Make sure you upload it as a .gif NOT a picture file...If you have the option to choose from...

Mines didn't move for the first few minutes. Give it a few minutes. I don't know what else if that doesn't work.

^ That too. If you didn't already, make sure either the link/image saved ends with the .gif
That includes the URL link.

Its been a while since I've changed my avatar. So, I'm having a hard time remembering what I did to get it on here. I DO remember resizing it and possibly using tinypic.com to upload it...

It is a .gif file, the image is the right size and stuff.
IDK, maybe UG hates me

It needs to be 50 by 50 pixels and les than 19.5 kb. Show me what gif you want and I'll trim it down to size

Make sure it's optimized for playback. The GIMP has an option for that; it throws out unnecessary data in any frames after the first one, so it only stores the pixels that change over time. You can also try optimizing the palette. This stuff will make it smaller, so it stands a better chance of fitting into 19.5k.
