This was discussed a good three months ago, if not longer.

However, if you use Firefox, a quick Ctrl+T will open a new tab, and if you have Fast Dial installed, it looks like you're actually doing something. Opera has a similar system called "Speed Dial". Fast Dial is just a rip-off of that, really.

You click it and it takes you to another website.

I didn't think it was very good, because it takes a second to actually FIND and click on the Panic button, while its almost instinctive to just press ctrl+t.

Yeah. I never understood the reason for a panic button. Like BabyGrizzy said... by the time you actually found the button, you could've just closed the window with that cute little 'x' up in the upper-right corner.

My friend Stuart is here and he can find me out any time and the panic button is a necessity. Plus its on every post, so all you have to do is click it and it takes me to YouTube, Encyclopedia Dramitica or MySpace. Half of me says yes, let him find out; while the other half says NO, he will tell everyone in school and I will hate myself because Andy will ask me:
Andy: Is it true that you wear diapers???
Me: **** Off *gets mad*
Bottom Line: I want the panic button back.

I voted No, then realised that actually yes, I like the panic button. Because I'm a sneaky mod I changed my vote, but it still says my name under No. :p

I never used it though I can understand why people would want one. For those people who haven't learnt to use ctrl+t automatically, I think we should have it back if it is possible and doesn't cause too much trouble.

I didn't use it, and I still won't use it...So I don't care if it's gone or not

That's what I was going to say. Why aren't you hanging out with your friend?

Doors were made to open and... close!

I third that. And I also agree that it's probably easier just to hit the red X. Betagame, I think sometimes you need to step back, take a deep breath, and think about something besides diapers.

There is one major problem with the panic button.

If someone busts in and you do manage to hit it and navigate away from this forum, the other page doesn't load instantly. Especially if it's something like Youtube or MySpace.

Another problem is this. From my experience, people will stand at the door and talk to me, they won't come in. So they can't see what's really going on (unless I had a huge image of furry porn or something being displayed). They can't see what tabs you have open, and with my FastDial plugin suggestion earlier, they won't think twice about it.

But usually, if a web page is loading when they come in, they won't think twice about it anyway. I mean, the World Wide Web is slowly turning into the World Wide Wait.

I, for one, wouldn't use the panic button often, because my door is always locked. And maybe it wouldn't be put to much use on ADISC, but I don't think there's any harm in bringing it back. It'll only help. So, I say bring it back.

Try Google. That loads almost instantly for me.

Well, I never used it, and when we did have it, I hardly knew it was there, so I will have to say no...

(and I have never ever used Ctrl+T, I just clicked on another already opened tab and closed Adisc while on the other tab...)

Due to a majority of users voting against its return, the panic button isn't coming back. If you want this feature, install a browser toolbar, or learn to use alt-F4, or a button on your keyboard.
