Does anyone know if we are we allowed to use animated avatars or not? The upload page states they must be JPEG 80×80px but i’ve seen a load of people with animated GIFs to grab extra attention from customers. Am I allowed to do the same?
I would imagine having a screen full of animated gifs would be quite… distracting XP.
Then again if everybody starts using animated gifs, those who have a still picture is going to stand out more.
Yeah, a few people have them.. but most find that the flashiness of them becomes a distraction…
i find em truly annoying, and quite tacky. but that’s me
undeniably they do grab extra attention though. When they aren’t rampant things that move are of course going to demand the brain’s attention. I don’t like moving icons but I can see their use.
Whatever, i’ll stick to my purdy blue rings.
I personally think that cat one is kinda cute. i do think it would get annoying if everyone had one, thats for sure.
I agree. the cat certainly shouldn’t go!
They’re allowed, though I’ll join the list of people who find them a bit tacky. Except the cat. The cat is cool.
I agree – that one on flashden of the flashing skeleton wrecks my head – plus if there was a epileptic person looking at it, they would be breakdancing after a few seconds…not good
