"I miss the sound those buttons made" club!
« on: June 21, 2006, 01:57:25 PM »
Having been bogged down(!) by various things, I kinda forgot to visit again (silly Mango).  Upon returning, everything's gone red, the name has changed and..

THE BUTTONS AT THE TOP OF THE FORUM HAVE LOST THEIR AWESOME SOUND.

And I miss it.  Which is why I invite everyone who is in the same boat as me to join the "I miss the sound those buttons made" club.  Because you're not alone.

Thank you.

I mentioned to Neil it stuck out to me after the update... I liked everything else about the new buttons, except for the lack of sound.

Awwww. :P

I actually don't miss them.  They were kinda embarassing when you're surfing at a computer lab or at work and you suddenly hear a "WHOOMPH". XD

I agree. XD

I wear headphones a lot, and the sudden whoomph when I'm at max volume kinda destroyed my eardrums. :P

Usually, I tried avoiding to move over those buttons altogether, which is silly since that defeats the whole purpose of having them. ;P

I agree with Yonkey and Cat on this one. Whenever I accidentally moved my mouse too far to the top I apparently couldn't avoid the whoomping buttons. :-X
And, like OB, I've also been using headphones for quite some time now, and I have to turn up the volume fairly loud to hear anything too, so it always startled me. :o :-\

They're all closet button sound lovers.  We'll get them yet.

Thanks for the welcomes back though, and thanks LN and Rosella for joining me!

To be fair, I liked them for a month or two... but then they just annoyed me. XD

Its not about rather you liked them or not, they were a part of the website.  They contributed to the forum and gave it a personal feel that you could not find on any other forum.  In essence, those button sounds were the forum itself.

I won't be joining either... hearing a lawnmower trying to start every time you want to use the menu (or just pass over it!) got really old after a while ::)


In essence, those button sounds were the forum itself.

Yes, but that was the sound of the old site! now we've moved on to bigger and better things! out with the old and in with the new! Now, if the new buttons played a different sound...
Maybe a nice little jingle or something :james:

These buttons are just images, not Flash, so there won't be any sound added to them.  If you want sound, go to the Media section. ;-D

I always enjoyed going over the buttons when I was bored. It brought entertainment for short periods of time. XD

LOL!  Well, we might have sound effect navigation in the future, but just not using an SFX so loud and annoying. ;P
