First, to make it clear Stack Exchange does not allow animated avatars, the Can I have an animated profile picture? feature request has been declined by SE staff back in 2016.
However, as of today, users who upload animated gif as avatar have the animation showing in their profile, e.g. this user. (on all sites)
Can this please be fixed, or if there was policy change, can the above feature request be changed to status-completed instead?
Note, this also affects the newsletter, which show the animation in the email, and this can become pretty irritating.
