are you not saving it as a gif maybe? It shouldn't be any different then just changing your pfp to a simple png.

don't know if this applies to the newer smf version, but you might need to make it 75x75

needs to be 75x75 or smaller


The file may need to be under 192kb
Was about to mention this. I believe since then the size has been increased (or rather, reset back to the SMF default) sometimes you just have to play around with compression/size until the full gif uploads, otherwise it will be a still image

This is all you have to do, really. I tried compressing my gif to different file sizes and after enough tries it worked. Just use ezgif's compression tool and try over and over again until you get it right.
