it has to be 200x200 or lower, otherwise it won't work, if I remember correctly.

 

If it exceeds that size you can use GIMP or any other utility that edits GIF animations to shrink it down to 200x200.

It has to be within a certain size. I forget the exact dimensions, but the Andross gif I was using as an avatar before was 80x80 and 69.1kb, so somewhere within that range I guess.

It's filesize that matters, though I can't seem to be able to find the setting so I can't tell you exactly what the limit is, but judging by what Dras says, it is probably 100kb.

 

If that GIF flashes a lot you shoudn't use it as an avatar anyway.

      So... I was looking up kitsune masks out of boredom and I eventually come across this...

      Pretty creepy, huh?
      ...
      ...Wait a minute.
      That mask reminds me of something!!

      Oh.
      My.
      God.

      Because of Zero coming out next month, I was thinking of how the series will be in a linear sense. I know Nintendo so far is saying that "There really is no timeline" But this is america and I do what I want. I think it works as multiple time lines kinda like the Zelda timeline.
      The timeline I created or what I think can be considered correct is this:

      Timeline 1: Starfox 1993- Starfox 1995
      Timeline 2: Starfox 64 1997-Starfox Adventures 2002- Starfox Assault 2005- Starfox Commands 2006
      Timeline 3 : Starfox Zero






























       
       I like Shaquille O'neal

      What are your favorite memories to the series? How did you get into the series? Why did you choose to join Starfox-Online? Etc..

      It's that time my sweeties! After long last, after talking about it, hyping the crowd, and being lazy and not just firing it up, I am finally doing it!
      I wanna do a high school rp. As for world building, it takes place in my La Catalina continuity as somewhat of a AU prequel kind of thing.
      Do I need to say more?

      Self explanatory. Adding URLs to text fail.
