Forums: Index > The Wizengamot > GIF restriction policy


I'm not sure how everyone else feels about this, but personally I think that the site is becoming badly oversaturated with GIFs and that it's a serious problem which detracts from the quality of the articles.

To that end, I'd like to propose a GIF Restriction Policy, which would set limits on how many GIFs are appropriate per article (depending on the length of the article in question) and would determine when a GIF would be more appropriate or illustrative than a still image. For example: A GIF of McGonagall transfiguring the bird into a goblet is a useful way of illustrating what that particular spell does, whereas a normal image would fail. On the other hand, a GIF of Grindelwald repeatedly jumping out of the window is not demonstrating anything that a still picture can't do just as well.

What does everyone else think about this?--Pjayswitch (talk) 19:25, August 20, 2019 (UTC)
