Anytime I try uploading an Gif as a Profile Header or User Card Background, the file size gets reduced, and although the file remains a “Gif” in name, the resulting image displays 1 inert frame.
This is not a problem regarding file size, and I’ve tested numerous Gifs with files sizes as low as 1 KB up to 300 KB.
Until today, I’ve had a Gif Profile Header since July, and me.me was the only other member who has a Gif as a Profile Header. He uploaded his in September.
I conjecture there has been a recent change which prevents Gifs from being uploaded as a Profile Header or a User Card Background. Is this true? and if not, why can I not upload Gifs for such use?
