I'm currently writing an application that can create animated PNG files. I created an animation of the Lathe's progress indicator with it. Seeing as APNG is really only supported by Firefox, I've saved it as a gif and optimized it to ~600bytes. I added the animation to the Lathe template I added earlier this week to the wiki. I was just wondering what you guys think about it? Is it a good addition or too distracting? You can see an example here: http://ftbwiki.org/Tungsten_Rod

I like it, though I'm not sure of the benefit, and at first it is slightly distracting. I'd imagine for some pages such as http://ftbwiki.org/Sulfur_Dust if all the templates were animated it'd start getting really bad.
All in all I'm not sure it's worth the effort.

I think it's quite good. There isn't really much information on that example page anyway, as it's really just a 'crafting recipe item'. I don't find it particularly distracting personally.

I am imagining it would be more distracting on a page with multiple machine templates, rather than just the one on the example, but we'd have to see it really.
Also, I've just noticed that the font of the eu, time, and maxenergy values on that tungsten rod page are showing in Times new roman for me, rather than the standard MC font used for the labels. It looks rather odd... Is anyone else seeing that too, or is it just me?

Y U USE IE?!
I was about to, um, "kindly ask" as well. Excuse accepted.
Anti-joke chicken: because, when developing content for the web, one must consider how it will appear to users of all of the major browsers.
