If These Moving Icons Annoy You...

    You can turn them off. Many of our newer members probably do not realize that the movement can be turned off. You just click on Edit Profile in the upper right-hand corner here and at the bottom is a choice of having the animation. Be sure to click on Update Profile when you are through. If you haven't filled in your profile, why not take this chance to do it. You can even add a picture to your profile if you would like.

    I cannot tolerate the movement because of sensory overload; if I were not able to shut down the animation, I would not be able to use this board.

    I think I've followed your instructions. I've clicked on Edit Profile. Scrolled down to uncheck the animation box and clicked on Update Profile. But everytime I come back to the board, the icons are still moving.

    What am I doing wrong?

    If you are not logged on, the icons will move, but I don't think you can edit the profile without logging on. I suggest you use the link below and ask the tech dept to help you with this.

    You might need to log out & then log back in to get it to take the change. I did.

    Beeleaf, you were absolutely right. I did need to log off and back in again. Your suggestion is much appreciated.

    You know what drives me crazy? Those people who put their turn signals on and then forget to turn them off. If I'm behind them on the highway it drives me nuts! I have to try to pass them. Does this happen to anyone else?

    This is just wonderful! I have been SO annoyed with these -- wondering why a board devoted to people with problems like ours would support this type of irritating frivolity. I know some people really love them, so I don't want to be a grouch about it, but like you, I find my eyes overwhelmed by them and have to avert my eyes to avoid being overloaded. Thank you thank you.

    I thought I was going to have to leave the board. I simply cannot tolerate them. We have so many new members that it just occured to me that many do not know they can turn them off.

    For more good info on using this website, go to the upper right-hand corner and click on New To Boards? Lots of good info there.

    I didn't realize that anybody else had trouble with flashing stuff like banners and buttons and icons. I thought I was just being a party pooping naysayer. Thanks Mikie!
