Every once in a while a gif shows up that bugs me. Like makes me upset. Like that one of the octopus getting stuff poured on it. It seems tortuous. I hate it. I never want to see it again.
That one of the dog with a cup stuck on its face. Same deal.
I realize my opinion of what "whimsy" is might differ from others, so give me the ability to just mark something "AWFUL DON'T SHOW ME THIS."
I would happily accept that pull request. Perhaps a context menu item instead?
(And if it makes you feel better, the octopus was dead. It's a chemical reaction to the salt in the soya sauce that causes it to move. But I agree, it's really freaky!)
Just a heads up, I'm working on this. Needed to learn more about the Addon-SDK first. Thanks for keeping the issue open.
Awesome! Please feel free to bug me if you have any questions about the Addon-SDK or Whimsy. :)
It took some doing (we have a ton of GIFs!), but I found and removed the octopus one.
While we wait for your patch, a faster solution might just be to right-click on the GIF to get the URL, and then issue a pull request to remove it from https://github.com/bwinton/whimsy/blob/gh-pages/thumbnail-gifs.txt.
Given the number of months between when I said I was going to take this issue and today, chances are I'm not going to fulfil my commitment. Sorry about that. I may circle back on it, but if it makes sense to close this, feel free to do so!
