    So i've edited my avatar, but after i save it, it comes out as just a plain gif as opposed to the animated one, so how could i edit it and keep the animation?

    You need to edit each frame of the .gif individually. If you're doing that, uh, elaborate moar? :3

    well i'm just opening up the .gif in paint.net and editing it, then saving it, and then it comes out as a regular image (as you can see in the OP)

    I don't think Paint.NET supports animating GIFs. If you open it in GIF or Photoshop, it'll show multiple layers, and you have to edit each one, as each one is a frame.

    In GIMP each frame is a layer, and when you save as GIF make sure to tell it animated, not flat.
