I have the only animated avatar on this site, or at least that I've seen. It's awesome. I was going to have a different one but it was 8.23kb, just slightly too big.

Yes, Mr. Noname, I've also noticed your special avatar. Is it supposed to be Hedwig?

Well, with 35 posts I assume you have been here for a few days, (enter name here), so you should check your e-mail (the one you signed up with) for an e-mail from planet-tolkien.com and reply as soon as you can. Or e-mail Grep/Ant at ant@planet-tolkien.com and say what username you want. :)

Just so eveyone knows, this is D-Rob. My username has been changed to " ". Beets me as to why. And as far as my avatar is concerned, it's and animated owl from Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne. It is most definately not a flying furby or Hedwig (I do not like Harry Potter. I don't hate him, but I don't like him). If you find an animated image that is close to 8kb that you want as your avatar, reduce the colors or resize it using www.gifworks.com and you may get it to fit.

D-Rob, Well done, you helped fix the missing username problem - A while back i wrote some code into the user profile (http://www.planet-tolkien.com/update_profile/) that would allow users to change their username and e-mail, when i updated the live site with the code i removed the ability to change the username from the web page itself but not the update profile process. Recently when somone changed their profile, there being no username shown on screen the update file simly erased the username.

I've fixed it now - to get your username back go to update profile and write in your username and you're away.

Hopefully, people will begin to use animated avatars, not that they are better, but they definately give you more character. I like the avatar Grep! And thanks for fixing the problem with usernames.
