Result of yesterday’s elections are in!

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

I’m overwhelmed by the response I got on yesterday’s poll. I should do this more often ;)

Here are the results at the time of writing this:

Progressbar animation direction
Left to right   67.89%
Right to left   18.11%
No animation   14.00%
1750 votes total

The result to me was quite unexpected! The old Clearlooks had RTL (opposite direction) animation, yet only 1 or 2 people every complained about that! But then again, animation was always disabled by default, so not many people ever noticed that.

I guess it’s clear what the mainstream preference is now. You can still vote, but I doubt it’s gonna make a difference. I’ll probably make it a an option in gtkrc eventually, so that themers can decide in which direction it should animate.

Thank you all for voting and commenting!

Cast your vote!

Clearlooks-cairo has animated progressbars again, thanks to some evil hacks from Kulyk Nazar. In addition to animated progressbars, we also have fading checkboxes and radiobuttons. Pretty neat stuff!

But that’s not what I came here for. I’d like everyone’s opinion on the direction the progressbar should animate. Below are three progressbars. Two of them animate in a different direction, one of them doesn’t animate at all. Please let me know which one you like most by clicking on one of them.

Left to Right Animation
Vote left to right
Right to Left Animation
Vote right to left!
No Animation
Vote no animation!

Unfortunately, you can only vote once per IP address. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Oh, and feel free to tell me why you prefer one over the other, by adding a comment below.

Thanks!
