    Hey there - just been playing about with GIFing when I really should be doing other stuff....

    but anyway when I come to upload [​IMG] it fails, either direct upload of file or linking to it....

    And as you can see it is around the 30k mark (I believe you set limit at 50k?)

    What gives? Or is it discrimination via AI that has detected my GIF is too crappy and annoying?

    [EDIT]OOoops - it seems to be there, I guess just an error message being issued an process completing OK is all that is going on here[/EDIT]

    His edit from the OP shows that he sees the avatar as well, but is pointing out that he received an error when uploading it. I had this problem last time I changed mine too. When I tried to upload the file, I did it from my local machine, and when I went to save changes or whatever the button is I got some weird error. However, the process did still complete....
