And now people are creating animations in signatures for group advertizing in this regent program.

Never ends...

No need to be an ass, it's a legit question/ concern and in fact, was partially addressed in the new avatar/background rules (with regards to backgrounds) specifically, though many people would have liked to see it apply to avatars as well.

You can always send a complaint or a message to a staff member when you see one of those more dangerous images.

Thanks for your input .
I guess teenage humor goes straight over my head when you laugh and reply with a gif as your avatar.
I hope you never find yourself in my position and have do deal with asshats like you.

Dude, I wish I could not see yours! that is one scary arse clown! (((((shudders))))) I just emailed it to my sister, to scare her. Lol

Stanguilles7.....every time I see YOUR avatar I see the guys, lol,

Thanks for that

It has been pointed out to me that the T&C state that if animated gifs and other weird pictures can cause problems then stop using ATS



A SMALL NUMBER OF USERS MAY EXPERIENCE EPILEPTIC SEIZURES WHEN EXPOSED TO CERTAIN LIGHT PATTERNS OR BACKGROUNDS ON A COMPUTER SCREEN OR WHILE USING THE WEBSITES. CERTAIN CONDITIONS MAY INDUCE PREVIOUSLY UNDETECTED EPILEPTIC SYMPTOMS EVEN IN USERS WITH NO HISTORY OF SUCH SYMPTOMS. CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN PRIOR TO USE OF THE WEBSITES IF YOU HAVE HAD ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS, AND DISCONTINUE USE OF THE WEBSITES IMMEDIATELY IF YOU EXPERIENCE DIZZINESS, ALTERED VISION, EYE OR MUSCLE TWITCHES, LOSS OF AWARENESS, DISORIENTATION OR INVOLUNTARY MOVEMENTS OR CONVULSIONS.


I will disable animated gifs as has been suggested ( thanks for the advice ppl )

I just turned them off all together. It is hard to read a post with a gun waving in your face.

. It's wonderful. I suggest you try it.

Go to Tools+, and scroll down a bit. You wills see this option: "Member Avatars Are Hidden"

I like it for two reasons: One, it means I dont have to look at everyones stupid avatars. I hate that crap.

Two: It means I have to read the CONTENT of a post, not just recognizing avatars.

and yet you display your avatar for the rest of us.

is that your way of covering your eyes so that we can't see you?

That doesnt even make sense. I chose an avatar because several people commented about my LACK of avatar.
I dont like to look at them. If you want to, feel free. Or dont. Either way, your complaint is nonsense.

When I first joined ATS I wanted one. Then I figured, my avatar prolly brothers a lot of members enough as it is.
