I love the clips, but you often listen to something in your own player and it's kind of annoying to suddenly hear other music on top of yours. If music is to be on the homepage or the other pages there should at least be a visible player so you can turn it off if you want!

on all pages is just way too much think one on the home page is a good thought and the media sections as well

I think that it's enough to have sound clips on the home page only

Home page only; because I'm sure there are some members who have "slow connection" to the Internet ... trust me, I've had it far too long, and it was so annoying that a page kept loading soooo slowly. :annoyed:

Personally, I think that music clips for the homepage are great...but then you get a freaky computer like mine that automatically has the volume up to 120% or something, and you get rocketed out of your chair and into the wall. :confused2: So not that it isn't a fun idea, but for my computer...ehh...I'll have to pass. :(

clips on every page would be a pain because what if you don't like the song? And you're sure to get sick of it after a while right?

I wouldn't have music on A-U simply because I listen to music when on the Internet already, and it would be quite annoying! I do love LotR music, though, so I might be listening to that when visiting!

Even a 30 second clip would kill my dial-up connection. The sigs and avatars are hard enough.

Besides the point the pages would bould up slower, I listen to my own music on my computer too. I think íf you would decide to have some music here, which I personally think would be fine, it should be optional.

I voted for having it up in the media section for download. I'm rarely online without music, and it's very annoying having that mixing with my regular music.

I'd sasy music on every page - but a possibility to turn it off. Not all of us go by the main page when joining and if it's only there we wouldn't get to hear it. but when music appear on top of your own it's annoying. there's what I think :-D

Only on the homepage and then only a 30 seconds piece of music or so. Everything else would be too much.

Home page and media page; if you did it on all the boards it would probably bog down the site :(

NO. BAD.

Music always interfers with the music that the user is already playing, in iTunes, WinAMP, etc.
