Red face Avatars and Profile pages! *permission from Gingerly to re-post reminder*

Hi everyone! I have a friend who suffers from seizures, they can be triggered by flashing lights, insane color effects and such. I've seen profile pages with a complete all-out flashing circus going on! Like Gingerly's sticky says, you are able to block profile customizations. This is also the case with avatars. Everyone wants the cutest, coolest, most insane avatar out there am I right? So before you go and get a avatar think about that person on the other side of the screen who has this disorder. You never know who it will effect. Thanks for reading!

Hope

Thanks for the reminder, and getting permission to repost it. Those flashy avatars, signatures and profiles don't catch my fancy either. Everyone, well almost everyone, wants their avatar, profile, etc. to be special, and there are other ways to make yours special than turn it into a circus.

I agree. Most avvies and siggies aren't that flashy though. I think the avvie makers keep that in mind.

Good reminder!
I have seen a few profile pages around the forums with flashing/blinking lights and such, and now I'll remember, when I see one, to post on their profile politely asking them to change!
I see a rep coming your way
