Hey all. One time I was looking at properties of an animation that I put on my userpage in a thumbnail.
I discovered that when you resize an animation smaller, the filesize increases! Examples:

File:Evil_Elder_Tree.gif|thumb|200px|Original is 1208 KB
Thumb is 1915 KB

So.. I think we should do something about this.
I say;

  • only allow animations to be used in frames if they exceed the original file limit in a thumbnail;
  • limit the maximum size of animations to 300x300 px (so they can be put in a frame on an article if nessasary).
