Here is an example of an annoying avatar. One similar made me stop reading because it hurt my eyes.



In the middle of the day not so bad ,an hour or two before bed and with a couple of beers not good.

Thanks for triggering my migraine, lol

And for providing an example. Yes, I would scroll past that.

THANK YOU!!! Only the moving avatars with rapid movements side to side or up and down or rapidly flashing cause me problems similar to that illusion. I KNOW I am not alone.

Very few non-moving avatars cause me problems.

Sorry but do you actually expect 100's of ATS members to go and change their animated avatars because YOU find them annoying?

Pretty selfish if you ask me:

You said:



So because of a few people I should hide everyone's avatar


because of ONE person (you) why should we all change our avatars?

I hope my avatar is the most annoying one you have seen, I actually hope it was mine that made you create this thread!


Hey..

The OP just wanted to rant. There's nothing wrong with. Is there?

He can't stand annoying optical illusion-avatars, we gave him a couple suggestion and he's just going to have to live with it. end

No need to turn everything into a discussion. Let the man rant...

@OP: I agree, those avatars are annoying. C'est la vie.


Peace

Something like this would make it difficult for me to read, this is mild compared to some I have seen annoyance while trying to read about a 7.

There's one that I find utterly distasteful. It's the Twin Towers falling. I just imagine 3,000 people dying every time it falls. To each his own I guess.

Thank you. I appreciate your suggestion about using the escape button I will remember that in the future.
People need to understand the fact that these bug me when trying to read is NOT something I am able to help. I do like a lot of them.Just not when trying to read.

I guess the funny little "Hide Member Avatars" button in your profile setup is broken?

Because if it's not, you're ranting over something you have control over.



So true but then we would miss the good ones :-)

Some make me dizzy, I love the one with the kitty that jumps from the airplane though! never get tired of that one!

The absolute best way I can describe how some peoples avatars make me react, basically its exactly like trying to read a text wall,it distracts me that bad.

Ok I have been keeping this to myself for a long time,someones avatar just set me off. It is so annoying when you are scrolling down a post and you are trying to read a post and the avatar is either animated (moving) or an optical illusion.

A message to those with annoying avatars.

Ok so you want an annoying avatar, so do you realize I almost never read your posts because either I cant focus enough to read or it bugs my eyes and I don't read it at all.

Fast moving avatars or avatars moving from side to side or up and down rapidly especially are extremely annoying.

Mind trick optical illusions can also be extremely distracting if you are trying to read.

Please stop using annoying avatars so that I can read your posts THANK YOU!


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.


There seems to be many people who have this problem, I am one of them. I believe it has to do with differences in eyesight. I wear contacts, I have one eye set for reading and one for distance and all is great until a fast moving object sits off in my peripheral vision.
This causes a feeling of motion sickness and I have to put my hand over the avatar to read that post.

I don't have a problem with yours either.I don't really know how to take your response, My first guess that came into my mind, is your a teenager or just hit puberty.
