Agreed! Also, I'm a firm believer of trademarks and thus I'd prefer when people would choose an avatar and stick with it.

Re: Flashing, blinking and manic avatars

Is there an "ignore user" option on the forum? I've never seen it. But certain flashing avatars so annoying that I'd love to hit "ignore user" then that user can have whatever avatar it likes.

Maybe.... what was it? I have one I love but can't use it as I'm totally against moving avatars

I don't want to remove everyone's avatar. It helps remember who's posting. I'm better with faces than names. I just want to hide 2 or 3 people. In the end they always get themselves banned anyway. so maybe I shouldn't worry about it.

Just hit the "ESC" key and the avatars will be quiet (at least in Firefox)

Re: Flashing, blinking and manic avatars

IMO all the avatars on this site are too big, so I did this...

That being said, I know my avatar is badass.

Thank you.
Some people get annoyed by flashing avatars, others by boozing people on the train. Accept what you can't change.

Actually my personal favorite avatar on this forum is a moving one. Love it!
