Hi there,

Gifs is a great way to show game animations or bugs and there is great tools like ScreenToGif for example.

Could forum be able to display animated gif ?

    It's already possible, just like with any other image. See below for an example:

    GIF

    I used the following Markdown code:

    ![GIF](https://thumbs.gfycat.com/CaringDefensiveAndeancondor-size_restricted.gif)
    

    If posting from services such as Gfycat, it's a good idea to link to the original GIFV (which is of higher quality). It's also possible to make the GIF clickable with the following Markdown code:

    [![GIF](https://thumbs.gfycat.com/CaringDefensiveAndeancondor-size_restricted.gif)](https://gfycat.com/caringdefensiveandeancondor)
    

    Which results in:

    GIF

    I mean the forum "attach image/file" button doesn't support GIF.

    I tried with this url, but it doesn't seem to work

    ![GIF](https://github.com/DevMagicLord/Godot3/blob/master/bugs/rotationbug.gif)

    Use the "raw" URL instead, which you can obtain by right-clicking the image and selecting Copy Image Location.

    ![rotationbug.gif](https://raw.githubusercontent.com/DevMagicLord/Godot3/master/bugs/rotationbug.gif)
    

    Results in:

    rotationbug.gif
