Hello. I've just started using this site, and I have a suggestion. Many users have life patterns like the one shown below as avatars:

Fun fact: I wanted to use that loafer gif myself, but it was too big. So, why not have a feature where users can input a pattern like that loafer, have the site make it a gif like that (And have an option where users can put in a movement speed if they want to use a spaceship), and have the site automatically crop it to 128px by 128px so that they can use it as their avatar? ;)

That would be very nice and convenient, actually. BUT, You can resize gifs online, and we have the giffer script. The lifeviewer used to have a gif making option but they removed it for some reason

1. Thank you for telling me about giffer :)
2. I tried resizing the loafer, but it looked like this:

Yeah gif resizing can be a bit glitchy

You can resize gifs automatically by setting the size as larger than the actual gif size but then it starts to look fuzzy like mine. (My avatar is about three times wider and longer than the original that giffer.lua gave)

Tried that too, but the site said the image was too many KiB big.

1. I'm having trouble with the giffy script. I copy and paste it into a text file, and put it in the scripts folder, but i don't have any clue what to do from there, as i don't know how to change it from a .txt file to a .py file!
2. Even if i did, the other .py scripts don't work (at least on my computer), and i'm pretty sure this won't either!
3. I just want to point out that while looking for the loafer gif, I SOMEHOW managed to find a bunch of unrelated anime images.

I recognize the art style. It's from an anime called "No Game No Life". The words "game" and "life" are probably what made it pop up.

Now it's not letting me do this even with a base GIF size of just over 5.5 KiB. (maximum is 25 KiB)
