Re: Ban the damn Gifs!

I do agree with the random unrelated ones from random hollywood movies are annoying though. Especially when it just turns into a huge conversation of them.

This will show all pictures as links rather than the full images which should speed up your loading time - or at least it worked for me.

As to whether we should do something about GIFs, let's see how it goes for the time being.

I do agree that some posters spam random threads with completely unrelated images and it can be annoying but that may be a transient thing as it's just the in thing to do on here at the moment and it may pass when they get bored of it. I wouldn't say it's a practice that's out of control at the moment.

GIFs a pretty new thing (on here) and generally popular so it would be a bit harsh to get rid of them altogether. Though, if there is a large volume of complaints I suppose we could look into limiting their use to particular forums in the first instance.

Is this saying the solution to not seeing gifs is to not see any images at all, including pics?

I just find them annoying cause they obviously keep repeating which for some reason annoys me.
