This is the message that appears to me as i upload an GIF image of grumpy cat smiling,

enter image description here

my thoughts are why is this happening? while this one has a cute GIF of a gorilla walking in his profile, is this some kind of moderator power? if no, how can i/is there any steps to be made in order to add a GIF image in my profile?

Any guide would be highly appreciated

Thanks :)

Im using chrome while browsing and uploading. And as one of the commenter said it is working on his browser, is this also a cross browser issue?

  • One question: Why are you trying to upload a GIF of grumpy cat smiling? – user206222 Oct 29 '13 at 3:52
  • @Emrakul i wanted to try the things i can see from others by that i can learn how a specific thing works. like for this instance that uploading GIF is not applicable to me, this thing make me wondered why others have GIF in their profile and i cannot upload it.. – user2705620 Oct 29 '13 at 3:54
  • @Emrakul thus uploading GIF of grumpy cat smiling should be downvoted? or is the thought of the question that should be considered in upvoting and downvoting? – user2705620 Oct 29 '13 at 3:55
  • No, I was actually just curious. I haven't voted on the question. Don't know why this would be happening; try clearing your cache? – user206222 Oct 29 '13 at 3:58
  • @Emrakul still the same already tried – user2705620 Oct 29 '13 at 4:02
  • How large is the GIF? This sounds like a duplicate of meta.stackexchange.com/questions/133138/… (also: i.stack.imgur.com/sHLgT.jpg) – Shog9 Oct 29 '13 at 4:08
  • I got a same problem and post it in meta.stackexchange.com/questions/199294/… .Its resolve next day automatically.Still I don't know why its happen ? – Shree Oct 29 '13 at 4:14
  • @Shog9 i upload it in the profile tab not in the profile picture itself, it is 784kb only. – user2705620 Oct 29 '13 at 4:34
  • Mind posting the URL of the image that you're trying to upload? – Shog9 Oct 29 '13 at 4:37
