There are a couple of bugs with actually uploading gifs instead of just using a direct bbcode image URL.

1) the code generated by using this button adds a "$" character where it shouldn't belong. You need to manually remove it:

Wrong generated bbcode:
 [crimg]asharka:$73640443[/crimg] 

Corrected:
 [crimg]asharka:73640443[/crimg] 


2) Gifs here will have "fuzziness" or "static" issues if they have any transparency layers. You either need to edit them using an appropriate software product and save them without any transparency elements before uploading. There is also a group who seems to volunteer their time to do that for you here: /group/Glitchy_GIF_Fixing/forum

3) Consider using the IMG bbcode element with a URL instead of uploading, if the image is linkable, not one you created yourself. This doesn't always work though, if the site you link it from has protections in place to prevent direct linking. And unfortunately, you won't be able to tell for sure if they do without opening the post in another browser, since your usual browser's cache will have the image that you already looked at, and won't show it as broken. Still, it is another option:
