    Since we can't add animated GIFs that are larger than 4mb now (and from what I've found, any non-tiny gif that is more than 1 or 2 second is more than 4mb), could we get support for vine videos? At least then I could upload a video to vine, make one, and then share it with people on the forums.

    It's a really powerful tool, to have an auto-playing & looping short video to showcase animations and particles. Youtube exists, but I have a feeling most people don't click on it, don't want to deal with 5 second ads for 4 seconds of video, and generally wouldn't be as impressed as a nice looping video they can watch over and over and over again.

    Thanks!

    We are currently looking into solutions into showcasing content through Gifs or other media! Vine could be a possible solution that we will look into further. We will get back to you all if we have any advancements on this.
