How to I upload animated GIFs to my profile pic?

Question

BeastManAli

So I tried to upload an animated GIF to my profile pic, yet it wasn't animated. Am I doing something wrong? Do I have to use another format rather than GIF? All I want is an animated picture in my profile pic :(

I think this is how I did it.. emphasis on 'think'..

 

Find a .gif you want to use.

 

Ceric2.gif

 

Go to a resizing site like: http://ezgif.com/resize

 

Upload the image to their site and resize to 200px and copy the url of the image

 

gif_200x200_c68593.gif

 

Click on your profile up top, right hand corner.

 

Hit "Edit Profile" at top left

 

Hit "Change my photo" top center

 

paste the resized url into that bar and upload

 

Finally.. profit.

I think I know what I did wrong, I uploaded the file, not an image URL... >_> Thanks :)

I have a question... I have done all of the above steps correctly, and successfully uploaded other GIFs with the animation working, but the last few times I've uploaded a GIF the animation is not working.

If the file size was too big, I resized it, and I used both methods of uploading the file (URL from photobucket, and straight image upload)... so why doesnt the animation work?
