If someone came up to us and said "one of these ranks gave me or my friend a seizure" then the situation would be different.

For what it's worth, I'm not "paranoid". Knux is saying now that it hurts his eyes - to me this just looks like he couldn't win before with the seizure argument so now he's switched to something different. This further proves that Knux is only saying these things because he wants the staff to do what he wants.

That's just what it looks like. Like I've said, you can install software to block certain images (Magician already went over that).

It may look like that, but this isn't the case.

I've not been diagnosed with anything, but fast-flashing images do hurt my eyes.

I also agree with Knux's point. Forcing someone to install that certain plugin just because it hurts his eyes or ignore it is rather harsh.

These resources are in place to assist people, and it's not harsh to provide them as an alternative. That's about as harsh as giving a legless person a wheelchair.

I stopped going on about seizure-prone victims because Joey and Valtteri seem to think that a small 16x16 image cant cause a seizure - but it can.

Okay, well, I had figured it was because you didn't have an answer to the legitimate point that people who are seizure prone would naturally be very careful and would probably already be using plugins or software similar to what I've described and shown.

I ask for the rank to be changed for two reasons. The first being seizure-related, and the second because it hurts my eyes - and it possibly could hurt others.
A simple request to change it to something else, and all I get are accusations of trying to control the staff team. It's just ridiculous, and funny considering Joey used to
have a go at me for being "too paranoid". But tell me, who's the paranoid one here? Maybe what I'm asking is stirring up a lot more than it should, but it's certainly not an attempt to control things.

The fact that you refuse the image blocker (which, if you use firefox, takes even less time than it would take to remove the rank) shows an unwillingness to compromise on the issue. What you're tacitly displaying is that you care more about the staff doing something as per your request than fixing the one concern that you have that can't be refuted (it hurts your eyes).
