Do you use the sound feature in the shoutbox.

I would like to remove the sound feature in the shoutbox for several reasons and give a little more space to the scrolling window. Please let me know whether or not you use and or depend on this feature.

Re: Do you use the sound feature in the shoutbox.

I have to admit that while I'm working on something else the sound alerts me to when someone posts a shout.........................however.

With the "Peel the shoutbox" feature this isn't so important as I can have the box "on top" and see for myself.

If you want to remove the sound then I will certainly not mind a bit.

Re: Do you use the sound feature in the shoutbox.

I don't want beeps and boops distracting me from twangs and strums, so I don't use it.

I sometimes use it - but more often I don't - So I won't stir up a revolution if it goes.

I for one enjoy this feature, to the point of it being obnoxious. But I vote to keep it.

Good Idea. It's a good feature but if its unused then I guess no one will miss it.
