Why are animated GIFs not permitted?

This animated GIF sucks. It only shows a fraction of the whole scene that was originally converted to an animated GIF. I am using imgur to host it as photobucket is having problems uploading it. Is there any other animated GIF hosting service besides photobucket and imgur that I can use on this site that can show longer animated GIFs? I used Abobe Premeire Elements 10 to edit the movie from an AVI file and then "Cute Video to GIF Converter ver 1.401" software to convert the edited video file which was in 1080p 29.97 fps format to animated GIF. There was over 200 frames to them, but it looks like only 10 are showing up for the middle one. The others look OK.

Edit: After playing with it for awhile I have obtained better results, still less than ideal though.

I decided to go back to photobucket. Does Imgur have cropping and resizing options like photobucket? I can't seem to find them?

How's this Moth3r?

Dimension wise OK, however the total size of 7.1MB for all three images is significantly over than the 100KB limit.

Makes viewing on a mobile phone particularly problematic.

Would it be alright if I keep it the way it is? I worked very hard to get these GIFs to work and I can't think of anyway to shrink the size to 100 KB without losing all of the quality of the animated GIF images.

Why do you need an animated billboard at the bottom of your posts anyway? We clamped down on these things several years back for a good reason, pages would slow to a crawl if everyone had them.

Combine these with an image heavy thread, and you might as well bake a cake why you wait for the sucker to finish loading.

With the exception of members who haven't posted in ages, you'll find very little of such visual clutter on this site.

We can easily deduce from your name and avatar what your favorite movie is. That ought to be enough.

OK, I will see what I can do at shrinking to size of the animated GIF images. Does it really slow down the site that much?

I'm on DSL and it still slows down the loading time.

There are still plenty of places in the world where dial up is the only option currently. It's not like some people have a choice.

I can't find a way to shrink my GIFs to the size you require Moth3r. Should I just delete it or will you let it stay? There is onem ore thing I haven't tried yet. I'll get back to you and see if this works.

Update: Nope, still not nearly small enough. Should I let it go or will you let it stay?

 You're replying to a spambot. Notice the grayed out post? They were banned.

 So are you saying that response was not from a human, but a machine, like a robot?

 Yes....And it must be terminated.

You're mission, if you choose to accept it, is to infiltrate their head of operations by ramming a car into the front doors, and start shooting everyone until you find Sarah Conner the Computer that's responsible.

Of course, if you are captured, we will deny any knowledge of your existence. This message will self terminate....as soon as you drop it into a pit of molten steel.
