    I can't say it is my favorite thing...neither is it the end of the world, since the volume is turned down most of the time. LOL

    If you want a definite yes or no, I will have to go with NO

    I guess I need to get rid of my reputation comments for it to shut up.

    It scares the life out of me when I log in with my speakers on. So I voted 'turn it off' as i'm a scaredy-cat :LOL:

    Can we turn it off in our control panel?

    I though you could, i have not played with it. if someone figures it out let us know. The coder who made it cant be found. I can disable it on the back end though.

    When I was taking a web page building class one of the factors that people said they don't like about web sites is automatic audio when opening the page. I tend to agree.

    Having said that, the meow notification didn't really bother me. It through me for a loop the first time I heard it though. I'm always on web sites with heavy advertising. I also have about 5 browser windows open. So when I leave a browser window open, it scares the living crap out of me when I hear a Bounty advertisement on volume level 10.

    Maybe we could add a Butterball hiss when we get hate mail. Wait, I've never got any hate mail on here.

    I voted yes to disable it. However with that being said, I do actually like it. I think its cute but by the time I get to the 4th or 5th thread I'm reading it gets annoying. lol Is there a way to have it only play when we sign in or open up the website? So then it doesn't get so old or too annoying to everyone. Just a suggestion. I do actually like the song tho, its my ringtone for my breeder when she calls me. lol It cracks me up.

    I voted "No" because some people might like having the choice. I myself have tried to mute it as it tends to give me away almost every time I log in. Perhaps I should post mean comments no one would thank. :BigSmile: My family already knows I'm a Sphynx Lair addict, but they don't need to know how bad my addiction really is. :Wink:
