I don't know if this noted any where but I found if you have a animated gifs and it is resize or thumb nailed it stops working. If keep it the same size org it will still work. —This unsigned comment is by (wallcontribs) . Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Simply resizing works for me. Simply using a thumbnail still works. But if you resize the thumbnail, it stops working.--IK Talk 01:46, March 16, 2011 (UTC)
Can you link to a problem GIF? I want to try some tests on my user page on your wiki. --Timeshifter 10:57, March 16, 2011 (UTC)
Try the one that says A mining node.--IK Talk 01:09, March 17, 2011 (UTC)
Looks fine to me, although it also doesn't appear to be resized. The thumbnail doesn't seem to affect it.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  01:49,3/17/2011 
Holy moley. <div style="height:5px;"> </div> all over the place. If that's just to space out the distance between the bulleted lists, add .WikiaArticle ul li { line-height: 13px; } (adjust to your liking) and remove all those unneeded divs =p As far as the anigifs, uberfuzzy said Wikia has some issues with animated gifs and "we need to re-do how we process animated images" Rappy 03:07, March 17, 2011 (UTC)
The divs seemed like a good idea at the time xD A nice direct way to separate things when you don't know how to do it properly.--IK Talk 07:02, March 17, 2011 (UTC)
You should never rely on divs for spacing. CSS can handle it without fail and without adding unnecessary coding to your pages. Rappy 08:38, March 17, 2011 (UTC)

(unindent). Wikipedia had some problems with resizing animated gifs awhile back. They eventually solved the problem. I don't know the technicalities though.

Until Wikia solves the problem it may be better to use some image editing software to resize an animated gif, and then upload it to Wikia. There is free software that will resize animated gifs. See:
