There is a setting to stop animated avatars. Can we get a setting to stop this for the User Profile Background images?
Why would you want to? They’re awesome! Check out mine
(But seriously, since they only appear on demand and on a user’s personal space we view this as OK. Versus having your avatar be animated on all topics…)
Yeah that should be a suspendable offense, right there. No freaky baby masks!
So I guess I will stick with the consistency argument but not that strongly. Done well they are nice. Some people have a hard time doing nice.
Don’t be afraid of heavy-handed moderation. Some people really do need a 24-hour timeout to get a message through their thick skull.
