Re: Need a new avatar

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.
