    the only problem for me is that if i watch a gif for to long it will make me sick so i think it would be better if there is a way to turn it off

    I think we can share out thought together here join my server lets plan things for Discord together. Moreover I like this idea. Nevertheless; I am looking for a special TEAM to work out something new for Discord. Join my Discord and lets plan together for Discord. (Updates)

    Make the gif play constantly everywhere it is shown. In the voice channels list, in the online/offline list and in the chat.

    Should have a toggle, and the gif should stop autoplaying when it scrolls off the page/out of view, like facebook messenger.

    Also this should work with avatars too.

    this option would not work with me by default, when discord looks at gifs for too long it can crash my client!

    I like this idea but only if it's a toggle so people can have it on or off, and server default on/off.

    I'd only support this if it includes an option to disable it. Speaking of which, an option to disable the GIFs altogether would be nice.

    if it's a default auto play, please don't. other than that, an option to turn on autoplay or turn off is a good workaround.

    It's forcing you to move your cursor over it so it doesn't use as much CPU.

  • KetraKetra commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Probably already been said, but I don't want this simply because I don't want lots of small movements distracting me on screen when I'm trying to read what people are typing

  • IsekIsek commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Settings option OK, but i personally dont want to see all the gif moving.

    There would be, AT MOST, 18/22 gifs playing at the same time, if everyone in the server was sending messages had a gif avatar. Thats quite literally nothing when compared to, say, a chrome tab. People really do have toasters, on/off would be fine I suppose, the more options the better.
