I'm trying to use animated avatars. So I installed the imagick extension and changed the default image library in the forum configuration. Now uploading a small GIF file (less than 30 KB) results in an execution timeout:
Can't imagine it takes more than 30 seconds to process an 30 KB GIF file so I'm pretty convinced it's a server issue. Thoughts?
In that case there's probably nothing we can do to prevent users from uploading 'a long GIF' (and we are not going to increase the timeout), so it's better to not offer animated avatars in the first place.
