    Awesome. I'd love this to be an add-on.

    :LOL: the first one would be somewhat intrusive.

    The rest, yeah those would be great. :p

    Maybe replace with the sound of hard drive grinding or the sizzle of a logic board being fried.

    John Major (Ex prime Minister) making a political broadcast for the conservative party. Damn did that guy drone on and on and had possibly the most boring voice. :D

    Does anyone actually use the discourage feature? Was it successful or did it only fuel trolls to troll harder?

    Btw, the OP's avatar reminds me of a certain someone..

    We used it for ONLY a few folks we wanted to be gone forever - we just wanted them to suffer on the way out.

    BUT, we recently decided that having warnings add up to this was not the right thing to do for regular members....because they don't know the nature of the discouragement. That is, we had people saying "my computer is acting funny" and then had to deal with that!

    I think KAM came up with that one the same night they threw logs with ants on the bonfire!

    TBH and good question. I haven't used the discouraged feature at all. I think it's one of those features (for me personally) which is nice to have and gives off the impression it'll be used) but never was used and likely never will be used. If that makes any sense.

    Well, I can think of one possible use. As a reward for someone who lost a bet. It's not to make him never visit the forum again, just like a "you lost, now you must pay the price" sort of thing :sneaky:

    I've never used it. If someone has chapped my hide to where I'm thinking of using that feature, I'm grabbing the Ban Hammer instead.

    "Chapped my hide" :LOL: Sometimes I wish post ratings were installed here to give more than a like. :ROFLMAO:

    Although I must say this. If that cricket sound were added, I'd be VERY tempted to start utilizing the feature. :ROFLMAO:

    I also set the random chance of redirect to a screamer on my site that redirects back to the page they were at in a split second.
    free.steam.games.xenogamers.org if you want to see the screamer ;)

    Not funny at all. Especially with the number of sites out there that do just that.

    No, you want to be subtle about it. Drive them nuts looking for the bug. It would be like using something like this.

    I just want to drive 'em nuts period. :D
