    I’m seeing a disturbing trend recently with plugin developers using “animated icons”. These are distracting, annoying, and completely unnecessary. One example is “The Events Calendar”: https://wordpress.org/plugins/the-events-calendar/

    Could WordPress please nip this annoying trend in the bud before we have ALL plugin icons that are animated and making a virtual Christmas tree out of our WordPress plugin listings? I realize that plugin developers want to shout “hey, look at me” regarding their plugins, but this is something that works when a few developers do it but soon everyone does it and it becomes simply annoying and meaningless.

    Thanks!

    There is an open ticket to try and resolve this – https://meta.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/5464 – however as you can tell by reading it, it’s not been as successful as all that 🙁

    I’m opposed to adding in a guideline that relies 100% on humans seeing and reporting. We need a technical solution to stop it so we can just cheerfully ignore them.
