Can be used inapp pics on pcback. But if this is a problem, also can be reported.

Sure that it doesn't have lag because is just an image animation.

 

Looks nice, good suggestion.

 

@Admin what about?

This would be no problem if they created a button to report this kind of thing. @Meow

Or you could use the "Inappropiate" button on the same xatspace to report inapp PCBack.
Great suggestion.

To add to what @Meow said, inappropriate images are arguably much worse when animated. 

 

They're more explicit and vivid (leaving nothing at all to the imagination).

I guess this is true, they are more extreme when animated.

 

There are two (or more) suitable ways to deal with this, that I have really thought about:

  • Adding a way to report PCBacks, like has been discussed in this thread previously
  • Leading PCBack moderation up to chat staff, in a similar way they deal with inappropriate avatars

I don't know why things should be changed just because it's animated. Just report it and be done.

Perhaps if a user is caught using an inappropriate gif as a PCBACK, they could lose the right to use a pcback entirely.

Oh that's a good point. You need to pay money to use a pcback, so there should be less risk of abuse anyway. 

 

Should be fine to report as normal, as Elie said.

That sounds fair.

So I realized after making---> sllEUIu.gif 

that there is no way to currently have a animated pcback with the pcback power. 

I suggest a power or a change to pcback to allow animated backgrounds.

I like this idea,

 

It's something that won't use a lot of RAM in HTML5, since its just a "gif" nothing else.

 

"Flix" powers I'm almost sure will be same thing, so why not?

 

I support 100% your idea, including I did something like some time ago for chat groups

@Danny, I've merged your suggestion with Techy's suggestion because both suggestions are the same, literally.

 

Thank you.

This would look pretty nice on some current pcbacks. I’ve seen some BG’s with animation and they don’t give much lag, I really hope they take this idea.
