It was created for me and I Love it, although I did ask him to slow down the fish when he first made it as they swam much faster. I can handle feedback, would mine be one your talking about ?


Avatar is on left signature is below and no its not too bad.


LOL...I KNOW the difference... in fact I considered that perhaps you did not, since you mentioned the animation going back and forth....but I didn't point that out as that might have been annoying....and for the same reason I wouldn't correct someone's spelling or grammar.....

I wonder if you might be a high functioning, intelligent autistic.

Maybe you are more sensitive to sensory overload than most. PTSD maybe?

And those avatars set you off because the movement triggers areas in your mind that are involved in defense against aggressors.

I was wondering something similar.


I have Attention Deficit Disorder. To be specific.

Your avatar is neither moving or an optical illusion.


Oh man ... those are some of the better avatars IMHO. In fact, for a few years the moving optical illusion ones were my avatars of choice. I think they are the best ....

Doesn't seem to work for me.


The escape button works on most browsers, but not on Chrome. If you are using Chrome, get the Gif Stopper extension. Once you have that, hitting the esc button will work to stop the annoying avis.

Is my avatar distracting? He is meant to be sexually ambiguous, you know. Look at that little bit of chest showing. And the hair. And the ridiculous pyramid necklace. Is he an agent of the Illuminati?

Your avatar is supposed to be sexually ambiguous? Geez, with all that hair he reminds me of a male lion.

So on the annoying scale...give me a number...

Well, at least you can't have avatars with sound files that plays when you accidently scroll over them


Those are very annoying

Bothered by moving avatars?

Just hit "escape" before scrolling down....you're welcome

Peace

Well except for Pladuim's avatar (poster above me)....what's up with that? It used to work...

2-3 out of 10. For me anyway it seems the size of the moving part of the avatar makes a huge difference for me.
Blinking eyes or small movements are OK for me. It's just rapidly moving up or down movements or side to side.

I hear you OP. The strobe-light effect from a particular avatar is pretty rough for me, although it may have a little bit to do with the person posting. Nothing says "keep scrollin'" like that dern strobe light.

I don't mind all of the animated avatars - some are quite funny. But if that strobe can bug me, I can see how some of the animations could distract and annoy.

I can live with that

I hope my avatar does not annoy you?

WHATEVER you do... DO NOT watch the ATS magazine cover on my avatar for more than 5 seconds... otherwise this will give you more cause to rant and make your brain explode!

The escape button is quite a good thing to press, as other posters have already suggested?

Just read the posts and don't look at the avatars that you know are annoying... (as they say... do not judge a book by the cover... just look and read the pages within)

Kindest respects

Oh man .. that's subtle but oooo soooo cool!

I wouldn't have even noticed if you hadn't mentioned to watch it.

I agree with you 100%. Some are very cool. even the annoying ones are pretty neat until I start to try to read.

I was reading this and decided to change my avatar for fun. Now it's still animated, but it's Chi from Chobits.
