I like a few, but not too many.
If done well and only on a few ocassions, sure! I love them a lot. But I don't like pages that are crowded with blinking, flashing, dancing, shining, sparkling, moving etc. animations. That just gives me a headache.
I like animated items if only special items are animated. I think it's annoying when a page is quite filled with so many different animations.
I think animated items unless the animation is so insignificant that you cannot really tell what was the point of it. There are some that are also really deceiving like this ability Slow on Paladore. Since my post count is too low, it is basically like the old dial-up speed when you were waiting for a huge file to load, but there are some animation items like the retro Neopets ones that classy as they are, just so long as they don't cause a trigger for epileptics and people with seizure disorders often seen on crappy "photoshopping" websites like Blinkee.
I hate ones that go really fast. I prefer smaller/slower movements that don't make my eyes and brain hurt
I kinda like them, but with a slow connection, they can be evil little effers.
Animated items are fine, but only in small doses. If the movements are small and almost 'discrete', then I think they are harmless and have nothing against them being there.
flight rising are looking really nice. They're animated and all.
Notice how it's pose seems like it's in motion but only fins,mouth and ears are moving.
However this is just my opinion and for other it may not bother them as much.
In regards to animated items.:
I think animated items are sometimes pretty, but if I get too many animated items on a page that I'm viewing it does become a bit overwhelming. It's usually easier on the eyes to have static items, but I can see the appeal.
