Welcome aboard, commander! We are currently VERY short on man power, so we appreciate every new member. Do you mind helping us fix the Intelligence Database section? Just link the "unlocked" section of each entry to the proper mission name (see here) and make sure there aren't any excessive links.

Once again, thank you for staying with us. And have a great day SuperFeatherYoshi (talk) 06:40, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

You mentioned that you can do in-game gif, and I think that's definitely going to be a very useful tool (I tried to do that once, the end result ended up looking like a stop motion, probably because my computer sucked XD). Articles like superweapons and support powers could definitely be illustrated better with a gif. The image for Orbital strike was particularly bad, so can you make a gif of that?

Well I am not confident with my device able to make good frame rates for Tiberium Wars while retaining High graphic quality, but I'll try anyways. BotRot (talk) 07:36, 6 September 2018 (UTC)

EDIT: Scratch that, due to technical limitations (max file size, high quality gifs can't animate), the gif idea is a bust (at least for 3D C&C). How come that never happens when I do the same in RA2 mods...

That's strange, I've seen Type Moon wiki play even larger gif. How come they can get away with that?

The likely reason is it's from Wikia, not Gamepedia. Their limitations on gifs seem to be different. You could try and prove that by uploading that Corona build animation from your old Wikia account and post it in your sandbox, whether or not it will animate automatically.

For now gifs are out of the picture for me in the wiki.
