Thread: Sound Bytes
Possibly this might be too bandwidth consuming or other techy type problems.... might need another server or something - or links - whether it is something taz can host direct or not I don't know. And of course, content would have to be in keeping with the site so a Council member might have to check them before they get posted. And a mithril charge should be made. Or restrict it to Community Supporters.
Well, that's the basic idea and I am sure some of you computer geeks out there will know if this is possible for PT or not.
Ironically, I can't use my microphone because I can't get to the back of the pc to plug it....
1) Quotes from tolkien, could this perhaps be copytight infringment, in which case, Taz could get into a whole buttload of trouble. He can do this well enough by himself, without any assistance from us. *grins at Taz*
2) Technically... Storing soundfiles in a database is problematic (binary blobs, etc), so, how would they be stored, etc.
However, it is a good idea, it will give people the opportunity to actually HEAR what each other sounds like. People could then actually HEAR my cool accent, and I could hear theirs without needing to telephone them!
As an offshoot of this idea, how about putting a sound byte of each council member up on their bio page?
Not a bad idea, and how about earning you mithril each time its listened to?
