I have mentioned this in the subscription - Yes? No? topic.

Is this possible to have on Geekzone?  If not, why?  Maybe it is something that subscribers could have enabled?

freitasm: You mean like animated GIF? I will look into that.



Wow, that was quick.

Yup animated Gif would be a cool feature.  And if it was a subscriber only feature it might make the subscribing more visible/appealing to other users.

We currently make sure avatars are resized to correct proportions... If the process doesn't break the animated GIF then yes, we could do it. I will look into this later this week.

Please no.  I find them very distracting on other forums.  The plain, non-moving avatars are fine.

If you do, then please add an option to disable avatars so I don't have to see animated gif avatars..

Agreed, animated avatars (also large image signatures) are annoying and unnecessary.

Frown A bit of opposition to the whole idea I see.

I personally don't find them that distracting, the animated ads that show for non subscribers are more distracting in my opinion.

What will be will be i suppose.  I don't run the site, so it is up to the admin.

I don't see any ads, so having an animated GIF is just "polluting" my view... If you find those animated ads are more distracting, then subscribe.

Not that big of a deal.

I think my comment might have been taken the wrong way. I am not complaining about the ads on the site, just making a comparison between them (for the non subscribers only of course) and animated avatars.

No hard feelings/comments intended :)

+1 unanimated gifs.
We already have to put up with crazy signatures. It'll get to the point where most of the content of the page is extra unnecessary stuff and finding the meat will be impossible.

It looks like I'm using an adblocker. I should consider whitelisting Geekzone in my adblocker or a subscription. The Quick Reply box will appear for me when Geekzone is whitelisted. Hooray for me! If I want to reply to this topic I should click on Compose Reply.

If you don't like animated GIF's
Press ESC
It pauses them :)
