The idea is you simply post in the thread with your image or your request, and one or more of us will attempt to animate it. Please note the animators are all unpaid volunteers who do this for a love of animation and to help other forum members to have the avatar they want.
Members who ask politely and are patient are much more likely to get their work done than members who are rude and demanding.
If you would like to view all the avatars without having to trawl through the thread, there is a link to each animators work after their name below.
If you feel like taking a trip down memory lane maybe you'd like to read this, where the animating began all those years ago....
Simple resize jobs are also available if you have already found a picture or animation you would like to use, simply post with your image and one of us will work our magic.
Current animators (and links to their work) are:
thebarman: (1-10) (11-20) (21-30) (31-40) (41-50) (51-60) (60-70) (71-78)
Jeremy Rumbolt (1-5)
Venledar (1-10) (11-20) (21-30) (31-37)
JohnnyBoyC (1-8) (9-16)
If you've had an avatar done by one of the animators please could you add a credit to your signature - nothing big, just a little "Avatar animation by (animator)" just as a thankyou...
If you're having trouble getting your avatar to work this thread written by UniversalAbsurdity will guide you through the steps.
Animating your own
If you'd like to have a go at animating youself here's the link for MS Gif Animator which is a nice bit of freeware. Once you've done a few avatars that people have used, we'll be happy to add your name to the list of animators above
Remember if you are interested in animating to first read the Animating Etiquette.
Here are a few tutorials put together so other's can learn how to animate avatars;
