NON-javascript users poll odilitime Board owner 05/16/2016 (Mon) 03:45:09 [Preview] No. 4047
Spent some time looking non-animated thumbnails for GIFs.

I need to know the following
NON-JS users: do you prefer animated GIFs thumbs or static thumbs?

The only way I can make it configureable for NON-JS would to be to require a log in for setting storage and I don't think any one wants to have to log in to get their settings. Also let me know if I'm wrong on that too.

Non animated. Browsers are such bloat these days, it's easier on those with shit hardware and also consumes less bandwidth.

Personally though, I don't care.

For me the problem with gifs is only the size. So I think a reasonable thing to do would be to put a limit on the size of animated thumbnails. If the scaled gif would be larger than a given threshold then just use a static thumbnail instead. Otherwise, animated thumbnails are fine.

A good thing about animated thumbnails is that they prevent hiding "potentially-unpleasant" content behind a beguiling cover.

dont care
just consider: could it ever be a problem as far as server load and available bandwidth is concerned?

I wouldn't mind logging in if it meant retaining my settings. As it is I have to reset the theme each time I clear all my history.

doesn't matter to me, but non animated would be best. If you really want to see it, open it.

might be a viable solution for all.

I am against this

an account for settings is not the solution. nonJS users are used to not getting "the best" in favor of security and performance. In that line, performance should be value over have pre-animated gifs. Make gifs wait until they are clicked to load.

Accounts are just another inconvenience that misses the point of an imageboard.

My browser doesn't even support images.

I prefer animated gifs. If they get distracting I can stop them on my end.

Why do you need accounts? What's stopping you from storing it in cookies?

>loggin in
Why not have none?

For some reason, I thought we need JS for cookies to work but we don't. So I'll pursue this direction and unsticky this thread for now.

Animations are visual noise and although it's nice I don't need to click on them I really don't need to see them all the time.

In fact I just realized how I can fuck with people in here, flashing Spiderman.

you are doing something really STUUUUUUUUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If the "GIF" is over 1MB, render to .mp4. All browsers still first frame display of the video before "play". everyone is doing this for beyond blatant reasons like JPEG became the web standard. Webm encoded AC1 is competing for this status, like opus won the audio lossy debate. Javashit will always be javashit. It should have never existed.

how about fixing the fucking del button for non-js users
