I kind of feel like the gifs should be automatically playing – is there a reason you chose to go down the route of making people click Play on each individual gif?
No actual reason, just a personal preference I guess.
I could test it with them autoplaying and see what people think. A happy medium I was considering was having the first GIF on the site autoplay.
Anyone else have any preference between auto-playing GIFs vs toggling?
Personally I'd much rather they all just auto-played. There's a lot on the site, and my pull to something like this is viewing how it reacts to users, without having to click it first.
My favourite example of this, and something well worth having a look at is Use Your Interface
I put this site together for fun. If you have any questions or feedback, I'd love to hear it!
I really like the idea. I'll visit it daily for the next few days, and try to give you some feedback.
