Is there way to de-animate animated avatars 'round here?

No offense to those who have animated avatars, but I find them a bit distracting.  Is there a way to 'freeze' them?

LOL!  That's amazing...  How did you know?!   :rofl:

Yeah, it's distracting...and disturbing.   :crazyeyes:

The adblock thing works nicely, though.  I'd considered that option; didn't know if there was a forum setting for that...

Iím going to take this opportunity to be an ornery old man and say the same about overuse of emojis and links to Twitter reactions. This isnít Twitter, this is Xixax, and for good reason - itís one of the last gasps of an honest-to-god discussion forum on the internet. Last night, TUBA laid down the law like an absolute boss:

Xixax has stayed pretty pure since its inception. Threads aren't mucked up by trolls and morons spewing off-topic nonsense, like most other internet forums. I think Xixax has won with its tradeoff between inactivity and purity, and hyper-activity and triviality.

Part of what makes this place so cool is that itís not about what the internet thinks, itís what we think, and we get to know each otherís personalities and become friends and feel like a family in the process. To put it in more palatable terms: we're all living out the Boogie Nights dream.

Letís keep it that way.

Fair enough. And (gulp) guilty as charged.  I'm new around here; my ears could use a bit of boxing, I suppose.  Gotta keep them youngin's in line.

I'll stay off your lawn, too.

We good?

Thank you for understanding. No hard feelings intended. Everythingís cool and everyone's welcome, this lawn isn't mine. Just want to keep this virtual camp fire burning as long as possible the way it always has.
