There was a recent change in the design of the team page, removing all animations. This request has become irrelevant due to this. Thanks for all the supporters!


In the team page, 40 employees got a cool animation, e.g. Geoff animation.

However, looks like no new animations were created for a long long time - is it possible to add animation for some of the new recruits?

    The employee formerly in charge of animations is no longer with us :( – Oded Oct 1 '13 at 14:53

    @Oded oh my! And nobody can replace him/her? I see "graphic design by Sean Gallagher" - can't Sean do animations? :) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Oct 1 '13 at 14:56

    Thank you for volunteering @Oded. ;-) That said, its a series of stills that are sized appropriately and combined into an animated gif (with a tool such as lcdf.org/gifsicle ). – user213963 Oct 1 '13 at 14:58
  • @MichaelT but someone have to take those pictures... maybe the retired employee wasn't designer like I was thinking but rather responsible to take those pictures. :( – Shadow The Princess Wizard Oct 1 '13 at 15:03
  • Hah! Chris Jaeger, Tonberry! – Dan Hanly Oct 1 '13 at 15:08
  • @danielhanly.com no! It's a cactuar and I spotted it first! :-) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Oct 1 '13 at 15:10
  • Shhh.. that's what I meant! It's been so long since I played FF. – Dan Hanly Oct 1 '13 at 15:10
  • @danielhanly.com FF8 you mean... FF12 isn't so old just yet. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Oct 1 '13 at 15:11

    The latest ones are not as good as they used to be! I haven't played for some time. 10 was the last good one. – Dan Hanly Oct 1 '13 at 15:18
  • @danielhanly.com agreed. Squall was the best ever. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Oct 1 '13 at 16:22
  • +1 for applying [status-declined] to your own feature-request :) – HackerKarma Aug 25 '15 at 21:15

    @Hack umm, that was just a joke. It's a tag that does not exist. You can put any tag you like, and even if doesn't exist, get such a page. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Aug 25 '15 at 21:31

Before it's closed, I wanted to stash all the past animations but alas, they changed the whole source to some dynamic picture creator and archive.org is borked when it comes to jQuery.

I was able to salvage some via Google, if anyone can find more please add them as well. Thanks!

Since it's going to be lots of animations, wrapping it as code - just click "Run code snippet" to see all of them.

  • I think I got all except Pops aka Kevin Chang. Alphabetized by first name, since we're all friends... right? – user259867 Aug 26 '15 at 0:47
  • @NormalHuman awesome! How did you find all of these? – Shadow The Princess Wizard Aug 26 '15 at 4:51
  • The filenames are "First Last.gif", for example http://cdn.sstatic.net/stackexchange/Img/team/Abby%20Miller.gif Don't know why "Kevin Chang" doesn't work. – user259867 Aug 26 '15 at 4:55
  • Yeah, but how you know who had animation? That's what blocked me. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Aug 26 '15 at 6:54
  • I tried all of them to be sure. – user259867 Aug 26 '15 at 11:13
  • @Norm wow, very dedicated to the cause! Unless you used some script? :-) – Shadow The Princess Wizard Aug 26 '15 at 11:19
  • @Norm found the old page hiding in SE dev environment! It's proving Kevin Chang never had animation, Will Cole is the last one to have animation. – Shadow The Princess Wizard Sep 7 '15 at 15:02
