GIP - my first animated icon!

(shamelessly ripped from the best Sinfest strip ever!)

(Update: image now redited following various folks advice. Thanks!)

Hmm. I'm not at all keen on that, to be honest. It animates very quickly and distracts attention while trying to view the rest of the page. Its speed doesn't leave me time to actually read the frame with the most writing, and I struggle to do that anyway because when shrunk to that size it's not very legible - I can get "I have a" and that's about it. Sorry to be so critical.

Good points. I'll edit it and fix it later...

See, even the Bally icon is better than the yarny icon...

You two are making life difficult for those of us who look at an icon and then assume we know who's posting. I don't think people should make icons that are easily mistaken for someone else's.

Well, I did it first 'cause Bally is inherently cooler than Yarny.

So *there*.

*does double-take*

Did I post that, or was it dougs? :)

AH, but this Bally and Yarny - completely different! How can anyone mix them up?

And suddenly realises what was happening...

Fixed now!

Personally I don't like animated icons in general.

Not keen, its too small to read, animates too fast and distracts the eye, as does purplecthulhu's bouncy one.

At least with konqueror you can set it to only display animations once and then stop.
