Damn. We have some great IT support here. I asked about my GIF not working and in less than 24 hours, here is the answer I received...

Here's the information:

the current settings require that an uploaded gif image be less than 390kb in size, and less than 700x700 pixels in dimensions. So if a gif is uploaded that exceeds those limitations, it gets resized and converted to a jpeg, which might be the issue that havasu ran into.

Did you copy and paste my gif? If so, it was already converted to jpg before the copy. Best bet is to find a Gif on the web, which is larger than the parameters, then reduce it to see if it just makes it a smaller GIF.
