OOOH. It's Tweety Bird's old lady!

Sorry, I don't know how to dance. . . .I'm sure someone else will though.

Well.... you have to find an animated gif of her dancing somewhere, or you have to make your own using an animation program--which is incredibly tedious and time consuming.

If she was an animated gif, she needs to be online when you select her for your avatar. Uploading an animated gif, at least from a PC, doesn't seem to work. Upload her to Photobucket.com, or a Picasa album or someplace like that. If she was not animated, what BJ said.

Yes, I do have her animated on Photobucket, but I don't know how to get her from there onto this board!  (I'm so ashamed.... :-\)

simply go to your profile/forum profile information and copy/paste the URL of the Photobucket version into the field where it says "I have my own pic.".

If you go to the link you posted, and click on it, you'll see a page with Image Link Code in a box on the right.  You want the one that says "Direct Link."
