No more GIF profile pictures? D:

Title. I haven’t visited the forums in a while, so I don’t know when this changed, but my profile picture is no longer animated like it used to be! Is this a bug, or is it intentional?

Discourse moment?

with that pfp i understand why they removed it


Discourses reasoning for it being removed was that it would “simplify the Discourse codebase”. Further down that thread they also said “We have completely abandoned the idea animated avatars for now”, so I’d say it’s intentional, at least upstream.
