Dear CR Tech:

Seriously, what is this, 2012? I created a fantastic Christmas e-card for all my buddies on Crunchyroll (all 10 of them) and it is not loading on the site when I upload it via Image Upload button.
C'mon! And what's up with no gifs on profile pictures either?

Sincerely,

Confused Citizen

The uploading function for gifs on this site has been broken up as long as I can remember being on here. If gifs are above a certain size they end up becoming pixilated with white dots, which, well, ruins them. I can't understand why CR has never fixed this issue. I don't know whether they're doing it to conserve image server space or what, but it's annoying.

The best you can do is upload the gif to an external image host (such as imgur, photobucket, etc) and use the bbcode image function to post it. It's probably too big to ever properly upload here.

I've been here since 08 contrary to this username, so I know they used to work at one point. That's why I'm calling them out on it. But thanks for the advice

The Help! section of the forum is primarily for user to user assistance. Customer service will visit as time permits, provided they have time left after handling all the submissions via the normal channel.

If they've actually disabled GIF upload for profile pictures, personally I would consider that a positive development. I really don't care for those little "look at me" distractions when I'm reading messages in the forum.

That is a ridiculous thing to say, every other forum site supports gifs except Crunchyroll, and it seems to be the most popular type of profile picture.

And I'm complaining about the pointless inability to post a gif anywhere on CR when a majority of the groups on here are GFX and gif creation groups.


I think it's a file size issue. Gifs of an appropriate size should upload fine anywhere on CR, as far as I know.

Now that whole "staticky" image thing due to the way CR handles transparency is a legit complaint, but it's not like there aren't ways users can convert gifs themselves in a way to avoid that.

Aside from being a false statement (neither of us has visited "every other forum site" on the internet, and I've certainly seen some that don't), "Everyone else does it" has always been a poor reason for doing something.

You can disagree with my opinion all you want, but that doesn't make it any less valid than yours.
