Ill never understand you people. How do you even think to make your avatar animated? I think animated avatars should be banned. I can't/don't read threads/posts, when I see something moving on the screen, its so disturbing (wow while i was writing "disturbing" my spell check said interesting hmmm).

You DON'T Deserve an Animated Avatar! I really hate this, so now it's out for discussion!

Go to TOOLS+ at the top menu and click "hide members avatars" and you are free from the disturbing sights you speak of.

Have a good one.

I want to see avatars, they tell a bit about the person, but animated are killing me.

Yeah, some can be really annoying...and others are really neat! You know what I do though? I just...deal with it and continue to enjoy the site nonetheless
That's your other option if you don't want to block avatars.

I think this thread belongs in the rant forum though.

Yowzaaaaaaaaa's!!!!

I've heard of some quirky pet peeves, but this one is just plain weird. You should maybe log out and just creep the threads, that way there are no avatars, or just do what the person above me said.

Straaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaange days are upon us!

I hide all avatars. Avatars give an undeserved impression. I read the posts.

I like your avatar, it's funny and cool.

The option to turn avatars off should be enough for those who don't like them.

Easier solution: Just hit escape on your keyboard before you start reading the page. It stalls all the moving avatars but leaves the image on the page.

Works for me every time.

Ctr+Alt+Del does not work for me. I think ATS must find a solution like clicking on it would disable it. I can even wright a code for them.

Just press ESC. Just once. You have to do it each page you load, but it freezes any moving avatars that may be on the screen at the time without removing them entirely. If you want them to stop moving without hiding all the avatars altogether. I've done it for about a year now.

I hate it when someone doesn't have an avatar at all...

There is only one thing more annoying than animated avatars.

It's pointless threads about non-issues which could be resolved in less time than it catually took to write the thread.

Those should be banned right away.

Go figure.

Well you better get used to it, Infact why not join the club? Drop in to the BTS avatar creations thread with some annoying ideas and the guys there will hook you up.

There are some amazing ones though.
I love whoever has that fly that crawls around, also the one with superman having a shot - I laugh every time. Haven't seen them both around recently though... maybe they have changed them. I hope not.

Some are very irritating yes, but the great ones make up for it in my opinion.

You mean Hitler playing the banjo doesn't crack you up?

Or the penguin that slaps the other one over the head and it face-plants into the snow


Or the "Hello Mcfly, Hello"

Disable them or hit Esc. like 74Templar said but personally some of the animated gifs are very cool.

Each to their own I suppose........
