    I'll literally try posting a gif that has already been posted in a sherdog forum and it says that the file is too large. How come someone else was able to post it? I can't post any gifs at all, every time I tried it says that the file is too large.

    Are using the URL in the box that comes when clicking the image icon..... or trying attach it?

    Have you tried copying the gif and pasting it inside the reply box?

    I've noticed this too. It doesn't happen to me all of the the time, but when it does I'll post some text then I'll go back in and edit my post right away, delete the text, then post my GIF.

    If a GIF exceeds the physical upload threshold, you'll need surf to an upload site (I strongly recommend Imgur) and link in your post here to that upload (external to SD).

    Should you go the Imgur route, the process from A-Z takes roughly 60 seconds and requires neither signing up nor paying a fee (tick rather New post from their main page and then drag-and-drop from your desktop).

    I have linked to GIFs well in excess of 10 MB, so problems of the sort are unlikely.

    Sorry to hear about the issues you've been having.

    Please see my post above (that is, № 7) in response to your GIF-uploads corrupting.
