Whenever I use the "Upload image from computer" and choose the gif at bottom, it just says "loading" forever and does nothing. I read other posts about outsourcing to imgur, so I uploaded it there for use with BB code, only to find that you can't use that method for your profile picture. The only method I am left with is uploading from my computer which does not seem to be working.

The gif I want to use:

That looks quite large. You'll probably need to downsize it before trying to upload it as an avatar.

Before I upload the gif, I got to gif or video editor and I resize the image to be a 200 by 200 square. It usually works for me when I try to upload it, however the long loading wait doesn't change.

Also be certain that it doesn't use transparency. CR doesn't play well with GIFs that do, which results in those white splotches you see on some people's GIFs.
