Moving Avatars

Recommended Posts

Recently, it seems that motion gifs for avatars has become A Thing(tm). Please do NOT use any flashing avatars. They can induce seizures in epileptics,  Yes, this really is a problem. I've seen it and had to fix the errant software. If we see any of them, we will remove them immediately. Please do not put them back. Smooth motion is OK. 

Thanks,
Dave Ambrose

Yup, as a retired paramedic, I've seen it too......................flashing lights in WalMart for example. Even our ambulance lights can be disruptive. Epilepsy is a very real and serious disorder, misunderstood by many.

Thank you!

It is not nearly as bad as it used to be but I almost had to leave the board a number of years ago because of it.

I created a topic regarding this back in 2011, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one with this difficulty.

Again, thank you for bringing this up.

My cousin's daughter went into a seizure one evening when they were driving home from her basketball game.

They were on a main road and came upon an accident scene where the EMS vehicles had the new high intensity lighting .

Epilepsy aside, I just find them to be plain old annoying.
