|Please remove all irritating/overly animated avatars and signatures.|
Yes, it's in the eye of the beholder. And in the case of the Frihost Forum, it's in the eye of the Mods and Admins.
We don't want to blanket-ban all animated images, but some are far too distracting for other users. We have to weigh up what is acceptable for a user to show and what is not fair for other users of the forum. Generally, it will need to be very animated with a fairly high contrast before you are asked to remove an image.
Oh, ok. I thought (s)he (n0obie4life) was referring to those avatars you see where it's a video capture of someone talking that's been exported into gif format... You know?
But I suppose you've set me straight.
Its still a little hard though. I think they should get like a warning before a warning is sent that counts. Like you can't just give warnings to people i dont' think. I just think they should be like. Look your avatar is too animated. I suggest chaging it or i will have to send a warning. Or something along those lines.
That like saying though that spammers should not get a warning the first time round. I'm one of the mods that does notice them but bot as much as other people, I however think that its a good idea and the rule is not going to be scrapped -locked-
