@dudeonthecouch  be sure to add [ img ] and [ /img ] around the URL, without the spaces of course.

I tried this and it's still showing as a link. What else could I be doing wrong?

@Fhk hu  That's an issue with the way imgur hosts gif's these days, they're sort of saved as videos so it doesn't work as seemlessly with imgur links, but there's an easy workaround.

If you:

1 - Go to the image page
2 - Right click on the gif of Stevie grabbing his nuts and click "View video". It will bring you to a page with just the gif looping and the URL will have .mp4 at the end.
3 - Change the .mp4 to .gif and it'll give you https:// i.imgur.com/TlDGVYw.gif (remove the space of course)
4 - Throw the [ img ] and [ /img ] around it and you're good to go.
