In 346, I noticed you've introduced yet another psycho inductive element. The white disk that flashes, presumably (although I cannot be sure) when some criteria of interest is initiated by the volunteer participant in your project, is causing me to have headaches.

I'm really not sure why you keep incorporating visual elements which are known producers of negative side effects, but I wish you'd give a little more consideration to the impact of your visual elements.

That's an old bug, mentioned first here: http://fold.it/portal/node/987027
I've seen it sometimes too, but mostly in another angle.

It is ironic, xiando, that someone who represents themselves with the graphic you do should be the one to complain about obtrusive visual elements.

Those who live in glass houses spvincent... As for the effects of the game's psychotropic effects, that's a documented fact. My anigif doesn't engender neuraleptic shock.
