    Okay I'm in! smile
    I have an idea for how to do it. Thats important. A concept.
    The sounds are supposed to be "mixed". I.e. the bass drum has to consist of at least two sound.
    Am I right?
    Anyway I will do this in "two takes".
    The process is quick.
    A video will explain what I mean.

    I don't like the banner idea. I think accepting donation is the way to go. Maybe try setting up some kind of event where people can learn about using freesound tools and charge for tickets. This will help promote freesound and can allow for companies to donate as well.

    I just wanted to say how respected I feel when I use your site... I'm not sure if I can say that about any other place in the digital world. I use the sounds in storytelling / video editing workshops that I facilitate - pointing workshop participants to your site to help them create videos for the first time. I would absolutely help support your efforts to upgrade the site. And I trust you to use sound judgment in deciding how much to "bug" folks to donate.

    Freesound has been incredibly useful to me over the years, and I will absolutely donate if that is the route you choose.

    Although I'm almost always low on money, freesound.org has helped me a lot, finding audio samples to fill in blank spaces on an instrumental, add background noise for atmosphere or repitching samples to create instruments. Freesound is probably my favourite website for all of the above, I was reading your update (for the first time) as I rarely visit any forums on the web actually and, before even reading to the end, I thought it would be a good idea to donate something. I really like the website how it currently is and don't think anything needs changing, but if you're going to put in work to improve it then you definitely deserve more donations. I'll happily put in 5 or 10 euros a year into this project and wish the developers good luck for the future of this website smile

    I think that Freesound offers a tremendous service.

    I would be happy to pay a small annual fee to subscribe.

    For the record, I didn't take the time to read the thread, so I apologize in advance if this has already been suggested:

    I always mean to donate to Wikipedia, but I've never actually done it... until recently. I was purchasing a game on the Humble Bundle website, and it has "charities" listed there. One of them was actually the Wikimedia foundation. So because I was spending money anyway, I felt completely enthused to put some of it towards Wikipedia.

    Now I don't know what kind of baggage/requirements/percentages come with that, but I think it would be entirely fitting to have your company as part of that. It could even draw more attention to the site in general.

    Beyond that, I'm good with a banner asking for donations. However I do appreciate if it's not an "all the time" thing, but rather only until a yearly goal is met. Again, I don't know how successful it is for Wikipedia, but I do find that approach more inviting to donate. It makes it more like a campaign rather than a neverending request. And having a ticker to watch fill is satisfying as well.

    Having a banner all the time would probably just lead folks to "blocking it out", as we have unfortunately been trained by the internet to do with most ads.

    In regards to advertising, I'm ambivalent: I wouldn't be put off by basic banner ads as long as they're not too distracting. The only thing I put my foot down against is any kind of pop-up or redirect.

    On the flip side of advertising - I'd like to see more efforts to promote the site and attract a larger base of users. That means possibly an exchange of advertising, which might be an ideal way to accomplish both birds with one stone. Other's thoughts?

    I'm very "SURPRISED" I couldn't find this. There's just people making surprised sounds, but nobody yelling surprise, and certainly no crowds yelling surprise. If I get enough I could make my own crowd lol. A friend needs it for his radio show by 11:00 US eastern time, 03:00 universal. Do it just like if you were at a surprise party for your friend yelling surprise with everyone.

    I love using this site to find some new ambient foley sounds, and while i have a lot of projects that are far in development, i had to scrap a lot of other projects due to music blocks and the fact that they were not at the quality that i wanted them to be at. I took the sections of those projects i thought were nice and reworked them into a mini ep. Every song here uses some sound from this site, so i figured why not share it with you guys!

    Enjoy!

    hi
    I need something similar to this
    https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B03ccxwe2rnHdUlDZ0pDUFc3cVk/view?usp=sharing

    it's basically made of two distinct sounds
    - a background continuous note/chord (minor?)
    - the sound which happens three times

    I'm interested in both, but mainly in the latter.
    Any idea of which tag I should search for?

    Intended usage: black screen, then some text appears (like "in the meantime" )

    Edit: the latter sound is probably named 'chimes'

    Thank you so much for contributing this wonderful resource to the audio community. I think following the Wiki contribution model is completely appropriate for Freesound, I will be donating.

    Thank you again,
    Philip

    This is an essential site for me, and I'd gladly make an annual donation. In fact I'm going to make one right now, and will sign up to the annual thing when it comes along.

    Maybe an option to hide the regular donation messages for people logged in who have made the annual donation? Not sure how easy/hard that is to set up. I don't mind seeing the messages, and am not opposed to ads as long as they're not popups or the ones that cover the page making you hunt for the close button. I use adblock for the intrusive ads but whitelist certain sites so they get their hits and clicks, so I'd whitelist this one too.

    stop making sounds all together or just stop uploading it to this site? you should never be pressured by anyone to stop doing something you enjoy doing, if its the latter, then just listen to the majority not the minority, if everyone on this site gave you that attitude then i think its justifiable to not upload on this site, but even if that was the case (which its not) you shouldn't discontinue doing what you enjoy doing.
