Does anyone know or can confirm the Site guidelines on using Animated Gifs in Blogs/Notes?

From the Site Help page i see this-

Quote-
Picture will not be uploadable / will not be approved if:
Filesize is over 30k
It is clearly copyrighted picture and used without permission.
It includes nudity
It is other ways offensive language - including but not limited to racism, sexual harassment and religious persecution
It is uploaded to public folders and it is not picture of that particular Blood Bowl player

Its not suggested to use animated gifs on either pictures as they completely jam machines running on some systems and java versions

---------------------------------------

Now the way i read it is that they are allowed but not really recommended and i have seen a couple of animated gifs in the forums (mainly in signatures). Is this old or out-of-date information? I have an idea that would maybe require 2 or 3 gifs so im not talking about a whole bunch but i would like to know if its a dead idea before i get working on it.

Thanks

To answer you actual question, the number of frames, and therefor by extension the size of the GIF file, is going to be the limiting factor.

Giving a shout out to what ryanfitz did here, you can see that one giant animated image cut into multiple smaller animated files is still doable, and functions well. If you take this multi-piece approach it will keep the byte size within acceptable limits. It will create a few extra steps for you, but anything worth doing is worth overdoing.
