Profile Pic GIF Not Working

Question

MaxBazooka01

I just changed my profile pic to a GIF, but it only moves when I'm on my profile page. When I post anything on a forum it isn't moving. Why is this?

I think it has something to do with it being larger than 100x100 - in profiles images can be 200x200 but in posts they're 100x100, which means larger images are resized. Your might have been resized as a static image.

 

That said, it's also a .png on your profile so not sure how that's come from a .gif :p

Are you trying to use the .gif as a direct link?

 

I have found the best way to use avatar gifs is to download them and link them directly from your hard source. If it fails, the error is much more detailed than from a url link and the downloaded size of the original gif will provide more clues. The file size for Avatars is pretty restrictive.

 

If it needs reducing, there should be someone in the GFX section willing to help if you cannot do it yourself.

Oh, it was a gif, but I downloaded it as a png on accident. That's what the problem was.
