Are there any rules regarding the use of animation in Avatars at MobileRead ?

I've had to go and turn off the display of avatar's as I find one members animated avatar to be extremely distracting. I did PM him to see if he would change it, but had no response of any type.

You can temporarily stop any moving avatar with the esc key.

I've taken the approach of just turning off the display of Avatars. Tis a shame as I miss out on the other amusing ones.

Install Adblock Plus (know it's available for Firefox and Chrome. Seems to be available to IE). Right-Click on Avatar you don't want to see. Select "Block Image". Select first item in list. All avatars except the one that's bothering will still be visible.

Brilliant idea! I already use Adblock Plus on Chrome but never EVER thought of that usage!

It's your avatar, TGS. If you watch it for a while, every 37 minutes and 23 seconds it gives a disturbingly lewd wink that very likely scares small children. And yet I cannot look away.

Of course, some of fine users regularly change their avatars, so ... rinse, repeat.

Well, the picture is of Hildegard von Bingen - who, by all accounts, was a bit of a goer.

I can see it. There's a bit of a sexy Helen Mirren vibe coming out there.

Yes, I thought of (the awesome) Maggie Smith first too, but for my mind memories of Maggie don't have that (The Cook, The Thief, His Wife & Her Lover) sexiness that Helen has.

Cheers,
