Re: Stop changing avatars

The "injustice" of it all, galling isn't it!

Actually, I wouldn't even have thought about it at all, till you brought the subject up. Anyway, time for a change.

Can people stop changing avatars. It's driving me nuts.
Dougal...You used to have a cheeky chappie face. What the hell is a yam yam?
Uncle Max...you had half the women on the forum wanting to shag the last incarnation. Go with the flow man.
Sada...I've come to expect something sexy. Pick Tricia Helfer (cylon number six) or even better Doris Leuthard... then stick with it.
Why keep changing avatars? If it ain't broke don't fix it.

Is there a way to turn off avatars that move?

Good. I hate this constant fidgeting. It makes people seem like they've got ants in their pants.

Sorry, Led Zep fans.
Yeah, Your headphones are really hot! Really, I've been an audio engineer for over a decade and have never seen headphones worn like that!

I picked Vic Mackey (from the Shield series) during my mod days to add some pschycological advantage, but people began to think I really looked like him.

I seem to remember you being part of the "EF Strike team". Ahh... the good ol' days.

I was shocked to see you don't look like him!

In Firefox changin the about:config's image.animation_mode to "once" means they will repeat only once.

You can disable viewing avatars in your profile settings. I'd do so myself, but J.L-P's somehow persuades me not to...
