Is this userpic animated? Because it's supposed to be, but on my computer it only animates in Irfanview even though all of my other animated userpics (including the other new ones) work fine.

In fact, even the userpic I animated with gickr.com AFTER I uploaded this one works.

EDIT: I fixed it by taking screenshots of each of the frames in Firefox, cropping everything except the frames in the screenshots, resaving them, and putting the new copies of the frames into Gickr.com, and now it should work because I have it open in Internet Explorer and it's animated. Yay!!

It's animated on my computer. :)

Weird. Why does it only do it with this userpic on this computer? Maybe there is something corrupted about one of the frames?

EDIT: Apparently, it's something in at least two of the frames. I tried making three mixed-up userpics out of two frames from this one and one frame from a different one, and none of them animated, but this mixed-up userpic did:

EDOT: HA! It's the first and third frames that are messing it up, because this mixed-up userpic works fine:

It's not animated for me.

Maybe it also has to do with the operating system and/or the web browser. I have Windows Vista, and normally I use Internet Explorer 8 (in which the userpic isn't animated), but I just tried Google Chrome and Firefox and it's animated in both of those.

Apparently, the first and third frames of the userpic (as I discovered yesterday - see my reply to rovanda) are corrupted in such a way that any animated GIF including at least one of them (or at least one made with Gickr) will not animate in Internet Explorer. Weird.

Later on, I'm gonna try resaving the original frames under different filenames and see if it helps.

I use Internet Explorer too, not sure what version.

I've solved the problem. Thanks to all of you for your input!

As I said to awehla, I'm gonna resave the first and third frames under different filenames and remake the animated GIF with them to see if it helps.

Yay! I like the new one.

If I had to pick six words to describe myself, I would panic and ask someone for help because I am so downright random and weird that there is no possible way to describe myself or my journal in only six words.

So here's a list of things you'll probably see in this journal, in no particular order:
- Posts about my life
- Posts about my worrying about being disliked for any number of reasons
- Posts about the fact that I'm trying to fix all the things that are messed up in my LJ and DW and catch up on lots of websites that I'm behind on reading
- Backups of my posts on Miiverse now that Miiverse is discontinued... so if you want to know what some random guy was saying about New Super Mario Bros. U or Nintendo Land five years ago, this is the journal for you :P
- Quizzes and surveys and such
- References to random things I'm obsessed with
- Whatever else I feel like posting

Some of the random things I'm obsessed with are:
- LiveJournal (obviously)
- Looking back at things that were made years ago... old posts on LJ, etc.
- Math
- Weird dreams
- Video games (mostly Mario, Super Smash Bros., Kid Icarus, and Chip's Challenge)
- Video game music
- Homestar Runner
- Enya, my favorite singer and biggest celebrity crush
- Too many comics/webcomics to name... Garfield, mezzacotta, Terror Island, and Circle Versus Square might be the ones I'm the MOST obsessed with though. Oh, and Super Mario Maker Crash Course - that counts as a comic, right? It certainly counts as something I'm obsessed with :P
- Speaking of Super Mario Maker Crash Course, my biggest *fictional* crush is Mary O. Yes, I have a crush on the guide to a video game MANUAL. I'm so weird...

For a (hopefully) complete list of interests and Q&A about me, visit my profile. :) (Which is still in need of an update...)

This journal is semi-friends-only, but there's not much rhyme or reason to which entries are public and which ones aren't...
