GIFs in submissions

A Forum Thread for Half-Life

Hello peeps,

I am a bit(a lot) rusty on uploading stuff(models) on here so I have a question.
Let's say I want to submit a skin, let's say that I want to have a gif showcasing the animation of that skin - how do I go about doing that? 

Sure I can do so from going [Media > Images > add files] and it does allow me to add GIF files 
  • Allowed formats: jpg, jpeg, gif, png
But after I add those GIFs and submit or save the edit those GIF files act as pictures, just a still image.

Am I that out of touch or is it not working properly?
