Icon4 Strobing avatar

Someone here has started using a strobing avatar, I think it's Benwaa? I did try to message him but I don't think it worked properly. I just wanted to say that it could be harmful to people with epilepsy and poses a risk to people who might browse this forum. Not trying to be a dick, just pointing out that it could make this place unusable for some people, including myself.

A real shame. I kind of like that one. Or rixtrs skeleton DJ.

How about wearing shades while browsing the site? It'd look pretty badass, too...

Just choose a nice classic portrait featuring a refined gentleman such as mine. No need for any of this modern malarkey.

Re: Strobing avatar

thats why i marked my thread at that time as NSFE. avatars appeared throughout, ofc, so it didnt really help.

if you are really diagnosed with photosensitive epilepsy (a rather rare condition at 0,05% prevalence), your life is hell anyway (no tv, nocar rides, no flourescent lights, no concerts, no disco, no CAKE). wonder why you worsen it with visiting this forum

dont recall we did any damage in that phase either. benwaaa?

edit2: heh. just saw benwaa has a flashing avatar.

Re: Strobing avatar

Not sure what you're referring to there, ab. I only noticed one user with a strobing avatar.

I don't have epilepsy, but there's no reason why people with epilepsy shouldn't use this or any other forum.

Anyway, like I said, didn't really want to make a big deal of it. Just making a point

Re: Strobing avatar

it's no big deal. we had a two month period where pretty much all of the regulars had flshing gif avatars, and the more crazy arse the better it was deemed to be. anyway, we generally allow them on here as noone has ever had an issue apart from some member who isn't here's girlfriend who wasn't on the forum anyway had a moan about them or something. Such was the popularity and acceptance of the flashing avatars they were all collected together and uploaded somewhere for all to have in their glory!
All hail the flashing gif!

i believe that's what ab was referring to

there used to be a tv show when i was a kid called why don't you? and ironically the theme tune of the TV show went thus:

Why don’t you,
Why don’t you
Switch off your TV set
And do something less boring instead?

If you were giving reach arounds I can only assume you were getting some backdoor action...saying you got nothing seems a tad ungrateful.

It does, the .gif just has to be smaller than 19.5 kb (iirc)

I'm pretty sure admins do not have this cap, so you'll have to compress it or perform some black magic.
