Damn. I chose love it… not that I do… but sometimes I think it can have a positive impact on the photos… and you always have the option of turning it off, or your volume down if they don’t like it.

Definitely, definitely hate it. I have such a strong reaction to this though so you can take me with a grain of salt. But it bugs the. living. sh** out of me when I am suddenly assaulted by sound when I am expecting content. It’s not a radio station! The user could very well already be listening to their ipod or iTunes on their computer. I don’t want to be forced to turn it off or turn the volume down. It’s just as easy to leave the site entirely, which is usually what I do when I hear music. Again, perhaps I overreact, but I find it a breach of internet etiquette.

My two cents!

Thanks for the feedback Li! As I expected, the votes were overwhelmingly in favor of NOT auto-starting music. I left it on as an option in case someone wanted music, but it won’t start upon page load. Check out the new site when you have a sec, would love to hear your feedback. Trying to fix any minor bugs people are experiencing along the way.
