    Animated sigs take up space.

    frames ;)
    it changes ;)
    thats why gif indexes, i guess... to keep size down!

    lets say you have a sig on 10mb (<--example!)
    and then you have an animation with that sig revolving on a bg!
    with 50 frames, that would be around 10*50-some cause its like not the same all the time

    it is, but if you have an animation you have lots of frames ;)
    while a normal still image has 1...
    therfore it can use more space for quality :D


    i think... :p

    cause the quality makes it better, but there is no chance in heck that 10 sigs would catch up with a decent-no-lag-animation-sig when it comes to size :p

    bottom line:
    Animations, that are decent, are bigger then normal sigz!
