    The forum rules don't say anything against it?

    You can yeah, I've seen people with them, though if it's something really annoying it may be removed.

    If you can't compress your gif file, you can also try using an animated png, as you can also use those as an avatar.

    APNG's either have the same or worse compression compared to GIF images (at best only beating gif by a few KB).
