I dont think this is going to be popular but I think it needs to be in place. I love that this site allows us to make the choice to see user signatures. We need an option for Avatars.
I brought this to the attention of Mr Bitton about a month ago in an email but have not had any meaningful follow up. This has prompted me to come to this open forum intended for such suggestions and suggest that MMORPG really needs to either carry a seizure warning or address such images. We need an option of not seeing user avatars or to simply not allow the use of animated avatars. Granted we do not have any one using images such as the gif image in this link
I have seen such nonsense on other sites. Let us be a little proactive and head that off before it can happen here. We already have people using images that that do flash just for the sake of flashing. I have always just tried to hold my hand over the few images here that give me issues but when they post multiple times in a thread, it gets hard to be able to use the site when a fix to this is so relatively easy to offer.
I have been using this site for years and its almost silly that im bringing this up now. I have been here so long to only recently bringing it up. I tend not to post much preferring to read what others have to say rather then toss in my 2 cents. My motivation for this is born out of the realization that I have always just tried to work around some images when really I should not have to.
