Hmmm. I have absolutely no problem with animated ads for derby designs or sites or whatever in a person's signature, but I do feel that animated thumbs for derby entries (so, meaning the official, submitted thumb) are kinda tacky. I'd be quite happy with animated thumbs not being allowed (again: on the derby page).
I really have absolutely no rational basis for this opinion. It's just a very distinct distaste, feeling like... someone is trying to play me? It's like when a salesperson specifically calls me out to come over and see/sample/buy their wares--I am immediately on guard and very unwilling and suspicious. I am very much not a fan of the hard sell, which I feel an animated official derby thumb is--regardless of talent or quality. *shrugs* Illogical, yeah, but that's my taste for you.
AND NOW YOU KNOW.
I rose in rainy autumn and walked abroad in a shower of all my days.

Add me to the list of people who find them annoying. If your design has to be animated to appeal, it doesn't work on a shirt.
