I was possibly the person that suggested using 60 by 60 pixels because I have given that advice in several discussions. This advice was intended for avatars, but I see no reason why it should not hold true for discussions as well. I have used 7 or 8 different animated avatars and have resized at least a dozen for other members, and so far it has worked perfectly every time. If the image is not animating, it may not be a gif file or it may even have been editing in photo editing software by mistake and converted to a static image.
