So I am trying to figure out how some of you get such great animations and emoticons (more than the 16 offerings I see above a post box when composing a post or reply).

A few of my favorite animations with an avatar are:
Jeff's (#95) rotating book images
KCFoggin's (#375) butterfly
Dori's (#100) reading caterpillar
Steph H's (#149) star tipping her tophat

So tips on how they do these animations?
Tips on where to get "advanced" emoticons?

You were half way there when you used quote. What I do is when I found one I like on this site I use quote then copy the file for the image. You will find five of them in this post. There are several sites around the web that more if you want to search them out. I copy them to a word document to save them for later use. When I want to have one in a post, I just copy from the document to the post.

Aha! so i see 2 things from that tip: 1. I get the code to save, and 2. I see websites to go to find more. Thanks!

Now for the animated pics in the avatar/info area. I guess it doesn't quite work that way, but I'll fiddle around with saving images from right click.

Many thanks.

Thanks for the tip intinst. Expanding on your idea I should be able to link to the images on the yahoo messenger emoticons page and get things like this:
or this
for you intinst

You can make your own GIF animation from a series of still images:

Then you can upload your animations to an image sharing site like Photobucket and reference the image in your posts or upload it as an avatar.

Abq, huh? Sounds like home.

One great site to find smileys is http://bestsmileys.com/pageindex.htm -- find a smiley you like, and the full code you need to use to post that smiley is on the left side (image tags and all).

And thanks for the compliment on my avatar! :) I found that somewhere online a long time ago. Like others here, I have a folder on my computer where I save fun clip art and smileys that I find in my surfing, and that just seemed like a fun one to use here as my avatar.

You may wish you never showed us how to do this. We could be dangerous now.
I am happy to have helped all of you and look forward to KindleBoards getting better and more entertaining.
