Need a new avatar


This was my current one
Could anyone here make me a new avatar, I'm told mine is annoying and was asked to change it. This is the 2nd time I had to change my avatar in the past week.

Check »wizlair.com/graphics and see if one catches your eye.

EDIT: All of these are made to BBR specs.

Well, if you are going for ready rolled avatars try »www.wafen.net Those are already 5K or smaller. Some were made during the 40 by 50 days but you will find many 40 by 40's. I have no idea which of those may already be in use here.

It's probably the contrast black/white and, or flashing so fast. If don't find another right away-this should be less annoying

I think, perhaps, one of the reasons it was labeled "annoying" might have something to do with the fact that a strobing effect - whether by lights or on a TV, etc. - has been shown, medically, to incite epileptic episodes in affected individuals. I don't know anyone who would seriously think that showing such a thing that would cause such an episode was funny, and even though your intent might not have been to do so, that might be what the mods are asking you to remove it for.

Just a guess on my part, I really don't know what they are thinking.

I agree, I mean it was approved but then I was asked to delete it.

A little behind the scenes action: yes it was initially approved - as viewed in one browser. When viewed in the predominant browser (IE), it was found to flash at a higher rate. One that, as marcelle19 See Profile noted, has been known to actually induce epileptic siezures - and yes, we do have some members (at least one that I know of personally) who could be affected by such a thing. And probably be at least slightly offended by the choice of wording of that avatar also, quite frankly. The 'danger' range of rate of flash is from 2 to 55 cycles/second, if you're curious. And flashing is distinct from just movement - my stars move around, that avatar flashed.

As a final note, we all appreciate the way you dealt with this and your acceptance of the request to change avatars yet again.
