We now have access to animated discord icons so I was asked if I could do something (wikifest vlogs wink). Thanks to a high-ranked person on my list :Wowee: man that doesn't fit the entirety of Iiii_I_I_I's house, I decided to learn After Effects and do some stuff.
Some people thought that the first (currently in use as a result of excitement) didn't look great so I made another one that seems to be liked by more people.

Option 200px 50px
  • Works well as an intro for something, not as well as the discord icon as this only plays when hovered. This means that when hovered, the icon disappears first to make the animation.
  • Was mostly experimenting with the program as I was just learning it.
  • Works fine and is more subtle. No sudden change when hovered.
  • I know it might look like it bounces too much on the big version, but it really looks fine as the Discord icon.
  • Check my discord icon to see how it looks without the big image to the left.
  • P.S. - I can tweak the bounce if requested but that's about it for this one.

EDIT: I dropped down the bounce a bit cuz some ppl still think it was too much, which is the opposite of the subtle bounce I wanted. Hopefully, it looks more static and less of an eyesore and those who prefer a static image don't mind it as much (See small version for discord size). (Basically moving up the one I put down there in a comment.) Merds msgMerds msg 02:01, 15 June 2019 (UTC)

A - nice sword but also b is nice too Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 20:30, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

B - i change to b after spending more time on mobile - sword is still nice tho Star Talk ayy lmao ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 22:20, 12 June 2019 (UTC)

Whatever - really could not care any less and I'm not sure why it's worth a thread JaydenKieran 20:31, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

B -- Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 20:41, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A but slower - I don’t really see the point in having one if we go with B; too subtle. Christine (talk) 20:47, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A - B is far too subtle to even notice. Talk-to Kelsey 20:47, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A - reminds me of artisanal cheese. Also jayden is a party pooper. Badassiel (talk) 20:50, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

B - It's subtle but I think it would be nice :) BigDiesel2m (talk) 20:51, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

A/Either - Good work on both Merds! I like A the most, but they're both good, happy with either ^^ - Rawny (talk) 20:54, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

whatever v2.0 - they look great, but an animated icon is completely unnecessary imo -Towelcat (talk) 21:30, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Right, but the point is that we can have one, so why not? Unnecessary, yes, but might as well flex the boost thing. Badassiel (talk) 21:49, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Neither/Static image - I'm not trying to disparage the quality of Merds's work - As he creates very nice work in his free time for the wiki. However, I do not think that either of these look better than the static image we are currently using. 9xFavoY.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 21:56, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Also this should have been on the meta wiki. 9xFavoY.pngScuzzy Betahib8CAd.png 21:57, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Neither (or B) — I agree with Scuzzy. I don't personally really like animated profile pictures, so I don't really like animated server icons either. I think it looks better without animation, but if one must be had, the subtleness of B suits it better considering A doesn't loop smoothly and starts over whenever you hover your mouse over it. Credit where it's due though, they are indeed well made. --laagone talk 22:02, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Strong neither - Just because an option now exists, doesn't mean we need or necessarily want it. Animated server icons are tacky and just further bloats the list of annoyances on Discord. iN008talk 22:13, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

This is why I made the 2nd version. So that you don't get spooked when you hover it. It's a nice thing if you notice it, but it is not in your face. Merds msgMerds msg 22:43, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

(Neither/Meh B)/Static - Our icon is fine as it is but I agree if we have the feature we may as well use it. "A" is too long, too convoluted, and it really gets irritating on mobile every time you open the side bar. I don't like how we have to wait a good couple of seconds to see what the actual icon for the server is. I'd prefer a gif that keeps the icon consistent as it is and it's not a construction of the logo, but B just looks like something I'd hate after a while (the bounciness is too much). Unless we can figure out a good gif, let's keep it static for now. There's no rush: I don't see this program leaving Discord.

Oh no a giant B! Also where the fuck is Liquid to comment on the thread title? 7kyt1iT.gif --WINE OF GOOD HEALTH (Actually Stinko) 18:41, 8 June 2019 (UTC)

Comment - I've reduced the bounce a bit to make it more subtle to try and accommodate some player's preference of it looking static (?) (currently my discord icon, but in black). Merds msgMerds msg 03:16, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

I'm really loving the creative titles recently - It seems people are finally coming up with cool titles for otherwise dry discussions. And I'll take A. --LiquidTalk 04:51, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

A - Or what if the scroll parts was like a flag flapping in the wind, or the whole logo as a flag flapping, the bounce seems so random. Seers headband 2 chathead.png Elessar2 (talk) 08:43, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

That is beyond what I know :/ The bounce was what I figured for a simple subtle animation that has the logo up 100% of the time, as opposed to the first where every time you hover it disappears. Merds msgMerds msg 12:53, 9 June 2019 (UTC)

Comment - It's so subtle at this point that I ask why we even have it. Useless feature. -Towelcat (talk) 13:52, 10 June 2019 (UTC)

That version you sent has less bounce than the proposed. It is useless but if we can have it why not? Merds msgMerds msg 01:14, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
"It is useless but if we can have it why not?" As the old saying goes, "concise over superfluous". -Towelcat (talk) 03:14, 11 June 2019 (UTC)
Why not? Because it's dowdy and unnecessary, "because we can" is a poor argument for having it. Regardless, it just gives y'all more work when the holidays come around. "concise over superfluous" wise words, who could've come up with that I wonder :zil:. iN008talk 13:07, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Oppose - both are kinda eyesores 2hlOGcD.pngWinicrowhib8CAd.png 15:53, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Oppose - I prefer a static image. - WhNddzk.pngPascalhib8CAd.png 15:55, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

Neither - If the fuss is about distractibility and subtlety, then why go with an animated icon to begin with? How does it benefit us if people are going to be annoyed or unhappy with it? Slayer log Coelacanth0794 Talk Contribs 19:59, 11 June 2019 (UTC)

A is cool But B gives me motion sickness. Didn't think I had that. Degenret01 (talk)
