Hey,

To make a moving platform you will want to use an object #2 as the platform, and a #8 as an anchor point in the f3 object menu.
Once you place those you will attach the platform to the anchor using #5 push pistons in the f4 rope menu.
To make a platform move when you first get on it you want to use #16 and have the anchor react to it.

A few other things...
Make the mass of the platform large. From my experience no matter what you do gish's mass will affect the movement of the platform. I.e. if Gish is sitting on the right side of the platform the platform will lean to that side. A higher mass cuts that affect down.

Up and down platforms seem to work best, I haven't figured out horizontal ones, does any1 know how to do that?

Hope that helps.
