This is a request to counter what was done for Here, from the basis of Here. I believe (and you can feel free to disagree and vote this down, to indicate as such) it should be changed to something that is not animated.
The static image (so you know which I am talking about) is:
Animations are tacky and "90's",
The animation itself is high quality work, but the use of a animation at all is tacky.
A google search will turn up many articles like this. Consider this question on UX.SE And this one (mostly about constant animations, in the question, but the answers talk about animation in general). Are we following the recommendations there?
I recommend a more subtle change. (Perhaps the lights might flash).
I suspect most people will disagree with me, and that is okay, we will then have established community consensus.
