I've been thinking about this for a while now......When you design your Profile Pages
what is your goal? Do you want members to be happy to visit you, because your
pages are calm and soothing? ( Those are the pages I *love* to visit!) Or are you
simply trying to be *different* and attract attention? If the latter is the case, then
you need to know that most people will simply click, "Hide Customizations."
If members have a problem just locating your text-box, then your pages are probably
too flashly or too graphic.
......Just something to think about as you're designing.....

Thank you for asking. As far as I know, it's the flashing lights that give a problem.

I try to make it where my profile can stand out and be pretty, because I get a LOT of profile messages.

Bear this in mind; When only ONE person in a school of 1000 has a problem with Chemical allergies or Peanut Allergies NO ONE in the school is allowed to use these. No peanut products of ANY kind are allowed in the school my Granddaughter attends because ONE child could DIE from peanut butter on another's breath! My Nephew is so allergic that they have to ASK at the restaurant if they use peanut oil before entering because the VAPOR, alone can kill him.
Chemical allergies are FAST becoming as commonplace as peanut allergies. No one is allowed to wear perfumes, colognes, aftershaves or scented body deodorants for the same reason.
I have only ever once seen someone suffer from anaphylaxis (the throat closes off and the person can't breathe!) and I NEVER want to see it again.
These profiles that are bright and flashy pose a very big risk. Seizures affect the entire BRAIN. You know, some people with PSE don't even know they have it until that first attack. It is bad enough that video games and television programs have warnings before hand or on packaging so people are aware of this.
I whole-heartedly agree with Gingerly on this...tame them down please.
Yes, very well said DixieCup. These profiles/siggies/web pages (basicially anything that flashes) pose a very big risk. You are also correct in saying that most people with seizures disorders don't even know they have it until their first attack. We didn't know my niece had the disorder until she dropped after watching The Wizard Of Oz at school and ended up in a 17 minute seizure. We couldn't even finish her light testing phase of her EEG because the tech said her brain was seizing so much that she was afraid she would send my neice into a seizure that we wouldn't be able to get her out of.

I really believe that this should be a very strick rule with consequences just as stick. This really could be a mater of life or death for someone.
