Profile-picture

I’m trying to upload an “Animated GIF” as a profile picture, but when i upload any GIF, it doesn’t animate/move. It is being uploaded as a static image.

Earlier when i used to upload GIFs, they used to animate. But now its not happening.

Also I upload file sizes less than 1mb (as mentioned by codechef) having aspect ratio 1:1

Please Help!
Thank You!

Pardon me for piggy-backing on this thread, but I have a stupid question that doesn’t deserve its own thread - how do you actually set your Profile Picture on discuss.codechef.com XD? I’ve managed to set it on https://www.codechef.com/users/ssjgz/, but can’t see how to set it on these forums!

I’ve been poking around inside https://discuss.codechef.com/u/ssjgz/preferences/profile, but the closest I can find is “User Card Background” and “Profile Background”, which don’t seem to be it.

Edit:

Oh, it’s randomly showing up, now. Looks like you don’t have to do anything except change your profile pick on https://www.codechef.com/users// and wait(??)

I had the same problem. So basically you change your original codechef profile pic, and after next rated contest they will update both place
