    I would make as loud as possible between rallies, but stay quite in the other time. Keeping silence also helps player to focus on their games.

    In Yonex Sunrise Vietnam Open, many Vietnamese people tried to yell whenenver Tien Minh began smashing to support him. It was just not fair with Chong Wei Feng and the other opponent.

    Why aren't any pros use iPod when playing badminton?

    approve of a loud crowd as long as they're not using those air-horns...

    ok:
    -drums
    -thunder sticks
    -vocals
    -etc.

    because they may need to dodge shuttles that are too flat/high and are going out, perhaps??

    Once, my teammates were playing doubles against another school, and it was an Away game. One of my teammates did a great drop shot, it hit the ground, and then the opponent hit it back over. But the crowd, just started cheering because they thought it was a good, legit net shot. We protested, but the point counted just because the crowd cheered, so everyone assumed it was a good shot.

    Its an awesome experienced watching badminton games when the crowd was also into the game, aside from watching the game itself, fans' reaction were just another show itself.... LOL

    I enjoy the atmosphere for any badminton events held in Indonesia or Malaysia. The crowd are always so supportive. Though they make a lot of noise, but it is really very enjoyable.

    I love the atmosphere in Indonesia
    it feels pretty lively and tense (Especially in finals)
    I love how Indonesian supporter shout habisin! habisin! habisin! (habisin means finish him / her / them)

    or when they use (what is it? 2 sticks and you hit those two stick and produce "bam" sound)
    it's like: IN-DO-NE-SIA bambam bambam bam IN-DO-NE-SIA bambam bambam bam

    it is like, saying "lift up your spirit!"
    to encourage them
    to cheer them, something like that

    Is this the same thing that table tennis players yell when they win a point (I've heard badminton players yell it as well, some Japanese ones)? Although that sounds more like "cho"...

    maybe you mean "yosh(a)" ?
    that's japanese expression, it is like saying "yes!" when you win a point

    It's definitely more like "cho" or "sho" or something like that. Asian (mostly Chinese) and some European players shout it in table tennis, and some Asian and even some European players shout it in badminton (or something that sounds just like it), when they win a point.

    As long as its for support, could be as loud as you want. Once you cross into being mean-spirited towards the other team or person (the one you're not supporting), then it becomes rather annoying. But it can serve to motivate you too.

    I recall one situation like that, we managed a 2-1 comeback after losing the first game. The silence of the crowd due to disbelief (I'm guessing we were underdogs), was just beautiful. (;

    It's sometimes hilarious during tournaments. Last time I had to play against someone from the hosting club and the support was HUGE. Parents, brothers, sisters, friends all cheering for my opponent.

    I tend to break the one-sided cheering with a well placed "HUZZAAAHHH" when I score a very nice point ^^. People tend to see the joke in it. A few months ago a few even started to cheer too :P.

    That put aside, I like some good ol' cheering as long as its not friggin towboat-horns or something.
