I haven't complained about this, since it's your prerogative, but these animated avatars give me a headache!

Nothing like trying to scroll-read a page quickly and keep having Sonic the friggin Hedgehog skiing in bright, eye-strain inducing, primary colors.

Ugh! :(

:(

Is it that much of a bother?

(Well, I'll have to think about this.)

Thanks, Mitch! :)

Yeah, I do to. So, it doesn't bother you?

Well, (just so you know) yours doesn't bother me. Infact, I think its cute! ;)

Danny - No problem! And nope -- it doesn't bother me one bit. Where did you get it, by the way, if I may ask?

Heheh -- thanks! I'm kind of worried now, though, since Ben isn't too fond of the moving avatars. Heh. But we'll see. ;)

That's good to know! :)

I have no clue. :oops: from some random website, that had hundreds of avatars.

Eh, Ben is just jealous! :lol: Yeah, I know. but than again, he's not to fond of 'picture' sigs either, so I shouldn't be to bothered. ;)

(You have both, I have one! :lol:)

Actually, I find quite a few moving avatars quite cool. I love Mitch's one, since it's subtle, has a sweet character, and doesn't jump around all over the place.

The Sonic one is just too much to "shut out" on the side of the page when I'm trying to speed through the boards to check them for content. It's the rapid movement and bright colors really.

I'm not saying not to have them, but maybe we should pass some Ritalin around? ;)

Figures. Its because you favor Mitch, over me! You hate me, don't you? (Just kidding ;))

I know what your saying. But sigh. I love Sonic to much. :(

I'll see if I can find another cool avatar, or switch back to Spirit. :P

I guess the Sonic avator can be a little distracting when one is trying to quickly read the messages.

Still, as far as the avatar by itself goes, I think it's pretty cool. :)

I truly meant what I wrote as a compliment! I really have enjoyed your avatar ever since you introduced it.

Yeah, I know that, silly! ;)

I'm just debating, whether or not to keep it. And your compliment makes it harder.

Thanks, for the kind critisism, Josh! :)
