Meep, I just tested something. Aha, that's how it works. --Kevin04 05:56, 14 July 2008 (MST)

Trick and glitch animations

Good job at making those animations. However, do you know that some of your animations are not really necessary for the articles and only increases download time? I mean, Image:SkipTest.png and Image:SSgoingthroughceiling.gif - these two images could be replaced with still images. --Explorer09 15:36, 7 June 2010 (UTC)

Both images are small in their filesize compared to other images. But sure, go ahead remove them if you think it looks better, I have absolutely no problem with that. I actually just wanted to make Article_melioration_and_assessment#Tricks_and_Glitches_articles look better. :) --Kevin04 00:19, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
I see. Well, using "animations" and using "still images" are both considered complete, aren't they? I've edited Article melioration and assessment so that both methods look OK to people. --Explorer09 13:25, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
I don't see the point in using still images instead of the animations. Both files are well under 100 KB, and considering the current state of Internet connections worldwide I can't imagine how they would degrade the experience for average users (unless you think that they are too distracting). --Vladimir 14:08, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
I agree with CyberShadow here. That's why I left those "unnecessary" frames in, it just looks better with them and doesn't increase the filesize dramatically. I also think we should leave Image:SkipTest.gif. Super_Sheep_going_through_walls, on the contrary, works surprisingly nice! I'm not sure if I'd prefer the gif here. Oh, and as for the complete-thing: Yea they were both green, but since only the animation-articles had complete in, I supposed animations would still be somehow superior. It's more clearly now. --Kevin04 14:37, 8 June 2010 (UTC)
Forgive me, but the point is not in the file sizes. It's really whether using animations is appropriate or not for the article. Super Sheep going through walls, for example, will be better using still image instead of animation. Idle weapon animation continues after turn end, by the way, works for both, but IMHO, still is better. --Explorer09 13:44, 9 June 2010 (UTC)
