I was thinking that perhaps the main site could use an ambient tone (volume control and mute a requirement). I think a quite, dark interlude (Zergish) could really spice up the main page.

All the cool kids are doing it. You want to be cool, don't you? :cool:

Well if the forum included a music bar with music that fits each race that'd be cool

maybe the gameplay music for each race

Can you believe we actually considered this? It's on our list of things to eventually do but we have quite a bit on our list ;)

Forums don't need music, dammit. What a great way to annoy people.

Like, you can turn it off.

Psh.

We just need to find a way to make it remember your settings between sessions... Otherwise it'd get annoying.

Do you have any idea how tacky and obnoxious that would be? Especially for people who happen to peruse your site at work (spare me any lectures) and expectantly get music playing.

Music on a website always drove me nuts. If it's too short it'll get annoying quickly. If it's too long it'll interfere with page load. I can see value for a movie website which is all Flash, but this makes absolutely no sense to put it on a forum.

Trust me...they'd get more ridicule than praise if you embedded audio into a forum.

Even if the default position was off?

Wow, way to assume. I NEVER suggested music on the forum. Only the main site. A quiet, dark piece. Just to give it some atmosphere. Like on the Mass Effect main site:

Looks like you caught me. My bad :o I'll edit my OP.

I would approve such a feature. It should be an electronic ambient music though, something along the lines of what dsquid proposed would be good. Maybe you could also make a jukebox that got all the starcraft themes in it. That would be awesome as well imo.

Ooooo, I like the Jukebox idea very much.

I second the idea of music being "Off" by default, otherwise it can be very annoying. But a jukebox would be cool.

We can play the epic music from the cinematic trailer. Browsing SC:L will be an entire cinematic experience. :3

A jukebox for official music on the main site only would be cool. But only if it starts loading after you click it. If not it will just use unecessarcy bandwith aswell as annoy people.

Something like this:

Would this jukebox include any Metallica or Iron Maiden perchance? I recall they were featured in the games cinematics.

<_< ...... >_>

But yeah, I wouldn’t mind the music if it was defaulted to being off, and loading afterwards.

I've always found music annoying on websites - especially when i can't tell which window or tab it's coming from (darn pop-ups)

At least if we had music here, I'd recognize it and be able to turn it on/off

however... if it's music everyone likes/recognizes, it might be bearable

On the beta site we had ... crap what was it. Something like I Will Always Have You playing. It was pretty awesome.

Oh I remember, it was I Will Survive. I kinda wish we'd kept it for 24 hours.
