  • New Smilies are starting to piss me off.

    I know I'm quite possibly the only one on this board who feels this way, but the new animated smilies are so freakin annoying. For some odd reason I feel as if I have to view the loop of animation for the "bow" smilie at least 4 times per smilie, and the loop of animation for the "lol" smilie at least twice per smilie. This adds considerable length to my MiceChat viewing time, thus subtracting time from my incredibly busy schedule full of many exciting activities.

    Then once a page loads, hit Stop. This will stop the animated smilies.

      Can't you also disable smilies? I think there's an options setting somewhere.

      I, for one, like the smilies.

                  Could someone explain to me why the smilies (and avatars) are animated when I view them at work, but not at home? I think it may have to do with my security settings (and superior anti-spam/virus/green monster protection at home) ........

                            If you get them but they don't move you are probably correct. do other site's animated gifs function?

                                If you are concerned about security and want a full featured browser, try Firefox. It's not perfect but its better than IE IMHO.

                                  almost anything is better than IE- although IE IS better than Netscape IMO

                                    I have to say that I really doubt that a few animated smiles here and there are that big of a broblem. but as it has been said. if you don't like them. there is a disable option in the User CP.
