Not for the user profile but for images within the forum posts: You can use the SCEditor plugin. I have implemented a check: if it is a gif file, then it is not resized and the animation maintains: http://www.q2apro.com/plugins/sceditor Maybe that helps a bit.

I also asked the same question some time back on Q2A Github repo. Scott replied that Q2A resize every uploaded image and GD library do not support resizing of Gif images and that's why Q2A doesn't support Gif in user avatar. 

You can catch my question here.
