When importing your submissions from FA, animated GIFs are not uploaded as "Media" type and therefore are imported as still images.
I've been throwing this around for a while. While I would like for GIFs to be imported, we'd likely have some issues - either animated GIFs would appear in artwork, or still GIFs would appear in multimedia. I know the site was originally created to have animated files in one single area, but I wonder if it's actually a problem to allow animated GIFs in the art section.
I think we'll want to bounce this around a bit. The best work around right now is to upload a new file, but having a solid solution would be great.
