Hi, I'm Rosey, your friendly neighborhood person who is very sensitive to flashing things.

 

So as I said I have a hard time looking at flashing gifs and I'm sure I'm not the only person who has this issue as well. Flashing gifs give me extreme migraines that can last for a day or two at a time and with other people it can potentially cause even more serious issues such as seizures.

 

For the sake of people's health if it's not to much to ask to give warnings or possibly remove these gifs. This place should be safe for all users. :)

 

Thanks!

 

(Side note: Last time I checked there was no way to turn off signatures in posts. I would do that but I can't.)

Good luck with that. People

Good luck with that. People are quite stubborn about their signatures around here and don't seem to care about any inconvenience they may cause for others.

What you might want to try is looking up how to stop gifs from playing in your browser. It is possible if you tweak certain settings or use an extension

What might also be nice for you are those extensions that pause gifs for you. In that way, you don't have to worry about accidentally stumbling upon annoying flashy gifs. The only downside is that /all/ gifs are paused.

 

This is a nice one maybe. It's for Chrome though, but most browsers have equivalent stuffs.

            TOON PLOT
 
 
(one year ago /year 2024/ and after a failed time-machine experiment to travel to the future, we me and friends were teleported in different time lapses,it started by teleporting us a couple of decades back in time and then scattered us apart into different times and places,in my case I was kicked 11 centuries back into the past and found myself in scandinavia still stuck the way I was after the first random teleportation, so the 9-year-old me landed there, and after a year of being called crazy (a child in shock of tragically losing his family somewhere) for telling my crazy time machine story to midieval viking people, I gave up and decided to move on and accept my new life as the young servant for an aristocratic viking family known as the Hoffersons in a norse village called Berk)
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
hello all ,been too lazy to edit my signature..I'm Lee (the extra ee s are due to username rejection grrrr)..I'm not exactly a fan of dragons but I soon became a fan of the HTTYD show which it's also new to me, this was my first introduction post on SoD forum:
 
 
my favorite parts of HTTYD: The First Movie and The Riders of berk Series (lol aside from the prettier Astrid ,I didnt like Race To The edge as much as these) 
 
I'm Mainly a Deadly Nadder Rider..I really admire this dragon especially for SoD ,if we can get stormfly that exists in the flight club with the 8 speed, I wouldnt want another dragon..
 
to me:
 
HTTYD star of the show : Toothless
 
HTTYD Role Model: (Hiccup+Snotlout)/2
 
HTTYD best person: Astrid (also she's my SoD role-play Nadder Trainer as a young student of hers)
 
HTTYD Funniest person :ALL OF THEM
 
HTTYD Secondary impressive dragons :The Skrill, ,Scauldron, The Flightmare, Razor Whip and Death Song (you dont want these dragons on SoD if you havent seen the show) 
 
HTTYD Crush :Heather

Silver manipulated my subject -_-

I care. I really do care....

The GIFs in my signature are pretty slow.... By "flashing" you mean literally right? Or do you mean any GIF really fast in general? (Sorry for the stu.pid question...)  I did some major shortening of my siggy yesterday and removed a good many things, but if the GIFs I still have bother you I can remove them. :)

Like flashing as in flashing.

Like flashing as in flashing. Like, yknow that rainbow smiley face on DA. Usually most gifs people posts (like the stamps) I don't usually see anything with them that causes an issue.

It wouldn't "kill" me to change mine from rainbow flash to plain

I changed the top one in my sig, is the on right below it fine?

Hi! :)

Second column on left side top one where it says electronic techno dance. I'd probably think about slowing it down or changing it.

Being able to turn off images

Being able to turn off images in signatures (or just outright turn off signatures) would have actually been a great idea for a multitude of reasons, now that you mention it. Regardless, I'll make sure that if I ever do put a gif in my sig, it won't be some crazy flashing thing.

I don't know what host the forum runs on so idk if it's possible to add that feature but yeah it would be pretty helpful. Not to mention it would cut down on forum lag.

No flashy sigs here, but I'll put a warning in the beginning of my signature about flashy gifs if you would liike me to. I understand where you're coming from, some people do get seizures and migraines from flashy things. I'm not one of those people, but for your sake I'll try to refrain from using flashy gifs. :)

Most people's signatures

Most people's signatures don't have a whole lot of flashing gifs but there are a few i've seen that do.  By flashing I mean those really fast rainbow ones or ones that have two colors that switch back and forth very fast. I've only seen a few of those but I thought I'd bring it to attention anyways.

 

By the way if anyone needs to stop gifs from playing I installed THIS extension and it works pretty well.

The worst GIF i have in my signature is Ron Weasley holding a Mundrake with a disgusted look on his face. But that's it. I don't think it qualifies.
