Benyen, I am appalled by your remarks and your behavior, especially towards one of our kind and helpful Moderators, as well as some of the other members.

For starters, posting your age anywhere on the Internet is unsafe and not allowed on WI.
Second, I happen to be a teacher who has worked with a number of kids with all different types of disorders, seizure ones included so I *do* know what I am talking about.

This thread was meant as a friendly suggestion, not to degenerate into an argument.
Disorders cannot be helped, however, behavior and word choices can.

i had a friend who had frequent seizures due to a brain tumor. it certainly wasn't something she grew out of, and i think it just goes to show that there can be many, many different reasons someone may experience seizures and for that reason, there are different treatments and recoveries. this thread in no way has ever suggested there is only one.

i think it's a completely valid point that some profiles are very loud and busy and can make people dizzy - i've gotten dizzy and i don't have seizures.

but, i have learned to quickly change the page or turn off the custumizations if i can see that spot!

Great thread! I have a very colorful background to my profile, but I haven't animated it. I remember when I first joined WI, I made an avvie that was a psychedelic image... but after seeing it a few times, I got to thinking that it might be best to remove it because some people could have an adverse reaction to it. So, although I loved it, I removed it for the safety and consideration of others...

I don't think lots of people, myself included, always think about how certain things can be seen completely different by other people. I think this thread helps make people more aware of how something as simple as a personal profile page can, in fact, have a unintended negative impact on others.

Video games have warnings on them telling people of the risks of possible seizures caused by the animations. These warnings show before the game even starts... Some of these profiles should have the same warnings !!
