I am trying to upload a gif as my avatar, but it doesn't seem to like me.



This is the gif I want as my avatar; if someone would do it for me i'd appreciate it.

Sure, i can try to help you out.

Question:
Where did you find the pic and can you send it to me thru PM?

Also, we do have a section here on Crunchyroll for when you need help!

There are two problems with gifs on this website:

1) The website doesn't handle transparency within any frame of a GIF and will replace it with that gray stuff.
2) If you upload a GIF that you want to use as an avatar, you must crop it starting from the top left corner or the cropping gets all messed up. If you try it, you'll see what I mean.

That being said, I have my GIMP program set up to fix these things up in just a couple minutes! So...here ya go!

Here's the original image, repaired:


And here's the image again, in two different versions. I've pre-cropped them for you so that you don't get that cruddy messed up cropping effect I mentioned earlier.
