What duration would you recommend each frame to be?
Would 5/100ths or 10/100ths of a second do?

I hoped I put up in the description everyone HAS to do 10/100. but I did not. Still most people will probably do it, as it is standard and easy to work with.
I suggest 10/100 ;)
About 5/100, most browsers are not able to correctly show the speed at that rate actually... :(

When you save it, make sure you click the loop button. (next to where you enter the file name)
Loop 0 is loop infinite!

Yeah, that was the first thing I thought when I read the challenge. Also gave me an excuse to do all that transparent-y stuff, which was fun and annoying in equal parts.

Way too many frames, l4wr4! You have 10 frames, and the contest only allows for 8. Also, they need to be timed at 10/100ths of a second each.

I know that the transparency is messed up, it's not really an error, it's just a little lazyness in my part.

so try not to pay attention to that while
you guys figure out a way for me to make that stick spin more naturally!

pls. :D

If I'm using UnFREEz 2.1 to animate a series of GIFs, how do I make sure it's 1/10th (or 10/100th) frame speed?

Also, Check it out!:

Unfreez automatically does it right, so there is no need to worry about anything :)

Dude, I compared them... I made them!

You chopped off a bit of the arms and the legs, that's it. I matched it frame for frame otherwise.

He was not joking, however I believe he could have said it a bit nicer.
Anyway, try doing this dance yourself (while kneeling twice in a second). You will figure it is impossible :( Even putting your hands up and down like that that fast is hard!

It is mario.  He's a video game character not a real human.  If I remember the game correctly, he used to be able to jump a lot higher than he is tall. 
 
I think it's kind of cute and fun.

There's like 4 frames that are similar, and even that they have like 10 height difference >.>

Uh.. Quake you really did not help your cause here.
Looks completely like an edited worse version TBH.
I'm not saying it is an edit, I'm saying it looks like one. :/

And for some reason you even submitted it, colored and without a f**king head?
I think the problem is you don't know what to do with the face since this is so referenced it's not even funny.
The only difference I see is height of the crotch and and the arms bend down with the body.

Agree'd with Souly.
It looks like it, almost exactly.  It's unoriginal and not making you learn anything.

Try doing something original, it'll make you grow.  :)

This challenge is great, I have to be in on this.  I has ideas

quake, what a piece of sh*t that you didn't even finished, not to mention you took the most over edited dancing animation in the net and just copied it. it doesn't even matter if that was an edit or not, its just crap, and gets worse with that lame excuse of not being able to finish it when you still have like 5 days to at least complete it. it would be the same sh*t if you took the peanut butter jelly icon and amde another edit of it. i don't even know why was allowed in the gallery. its a male character with the anatomy of a female, wich its so poorly shaded that seems that his ass is in the front, not to mention you totally failed to see where the torso should be.

A question about challenges in general:
 
I've noticed some people have multiple entries.  Is there a limit on how many you can submit for a challenge?
