Can I use animated images within my journal, journal CSS or journal background?
Please do not use animated images in excess in your journals. This includes having a background which is purely animated images of any sort. This type of imagery can trigger various visual issues in visitors and we would therefore ask that you keep these to a subtle minimum.
We reserve the right to take action against any journals which we deem to have an excessive or inappropriate level of animation within it's content.
