Do you think that 30-second music clips should be embedded on site pages, or should they just be available for download?

The reason for this poll is that with dial-up, clips take a long time to download and slow down page-loading time.

I agree with that. I think the clips should be avaible to download only in the media section but not to be played on every page. If someone wants music he/she is free to play music on his/her own computer. Just like me I'm always listening to music while I'm in front of the computer and when sites have their own music sometimes this is desturbing me.

Exactly. And also if you have the volume turned up and you don't know that you do, then you get onto the site and music starts. This is problem, especially when it's 1 am like it is right now and you're supposed to be in bed. When music suddenly starts it's kind of obvious that you're not...

I like when websites have nice music on the homepage, but it's a bit overdone if people are putting music everywhere, i would not like those sites :closedeyes:

It's really a personal thing, and depends on your mood at the time that you're here, I voted for just the homepage, as music on every page gets annoying sometimes!
I love having music here though, as it's different from other LotR sites, and is fun seeing what songs is going to pop up! :)

I say clips for download only because when I surf I listen to my own music, and don't like others interrupting.

It's a cool idea, but most people listen to music as they surf the internet, so soundclips can be kind of annoying.

I said all the pages, because your clips rock! I've got dial-up, and your pages with clips load faster than other sites without clips. Plus, you can always stop them is they get annoying, or turn down the sound.

No offence, but I found the clips rather irritating...
I'd prefer they just go in the media section for downloads, they're all really beautiful and then anyone who wants to listen can just go there to enjoy the music.

I think it would be a good idea to have music on the homepage but not anywhere else. It would take to long to download and it would make the site slower.

Nah, no music clips at all! It just increases my computers page loading time. I guess this comment doesn't really matter though considering Arwen has already taken all clips off the pages that had them. Thanks Arwen, you've just saved me 30 seconds.
