This is a one week warning. After this time is up, staff will manually remove your profile if you continue using autoplay sounds.

wat does this actually mean??

Popa, ur hilarious.. lol

Instead of punishing all of us for wanting to use the autoplay feature to express ourselves, what if some slight changes were made to the site instead.. Like maybe adding a mute feature under the preferences area. This way for people that don't want to hear the music on other people's profile will be happy to check out other people's profile without being troubled by the sounds of others.. They can continue to enjoy listening to their itunes and what not while they play.. And the people that want to listen to music on people's profile will be able to continue to do so..

Or even a drop down feature on people's profile when viewing other people's sigs would be good too. Instead of being forced to see the sig section of the profile, u have the option to open it up or not. U will be able to do trades, send a message, etc without interruptions from loading the sig section of the person's profile that u are viewing, which I would believe that would cut down on loading a person's profile.. Unless u choose to view it of course.

Y can't this game that we all enjoy playing work to try to cater to both parties instead of staying to the extreme left?

Care to give a logical reason for why there would be a need for music to start playing when you go on someoneĀ“s profile page?

So far thereĀ“s been plenty of well thought out arguments for why this is a good decision, but none against it.

Anywho, this is silly... we have plenty of rules introduced on another topic that actually influences our game play yet ppl argue over some menial thing such as music players.


That's a joke . What are the "well thought out" arguments???

People have to click a button and hit "stop" on the player and that's it........

Seems awfully hard. Seems like a well thought out argument to me. Prolly took a lot of time and effort coming up with a response like that.

It's comical when u see people so happy over this update like the world is saved. You click a button to open somes profile. U can click a button to turn off there player. Don't be so lazy.

The same can be said for auto play however, only the principle of the matter is important to me tho

Sometimes it's hard to actually find the player, especially if the profile is very long.

Just scroll down is all. But then again, it's the internet. So people will invent 100 excuses why it's supposedly "tough" to do

I have 40 friends on my list and 1 is hard to find. Seems like update is helping me out a ton.

saying that, you cant Add that kind of button as its in flash,
Flash is its own code, only way they could do that if
torncity had there own, like section to make your own, and that'd kill bandwith..

so best idea to ched

Noobanator.. given that this is a game website that they own, I'm pretty sure they can make a few changes as adding a simple "music off" fuction as a preference. It cannot be that difficult to create given that many websites has a mute feature on their site. The ideas that I mentioned above is just, as I said, an idea. The idea is to provide for both sides of the issue. One side hates music, so y not put the mute button on so u can enjoy ur web viewing. The other side loves music, so y not keep the mute button off so u can listen to whatever it is u like.

I don't claim to be a webmaster or anything knowing the technical ramifications of everything.. I was just presenting an idea.. it's either others can elaborate that knows a few things about changing codes, or not. Or others can agree with what I'm bringing up or not.. or can add on to what I'm saying.. the point is that it doesn't have to be so negative if we work on making changes that can work for everyone.. That is also an idea.. I do not know if the staffers here would think that this is great.. But it is something that I think should be thought about instead of just being so one-sided..

At the people saying the TC staff should add a no play button, please learn a thing or two about the web before talking. They can't control the crappy music players ppl put on their profiles.

I think this is great. I hate being on skype and talking and then someones horrible horrible gangsta rap crap starts playing.

Thanks Ched!

Heya, I couldnĀ“t help but noticing we dont seem to see eye to eye here.

Now, assuming youĀ“ve been reading this thread from the start, youĀ“ve probably seen a few good arguments, such as:

Listed by GoldenGuard earlier in this thread

1) people might already be listening to music and it would conflict with yours
2) people might have their speakers on without knowing and get blasted and as an added bonus other people might be sleeping when the blast of music occurs
3)people might have a download limit and they don't want to waste it on other peoples music
4) people might just hate your choice of music and get annoyed on trying to find the music player in your profile (a lot of people have it near the bottom or at a random point in a large profile so it is hard to find)
5) there are those who might not even like music period (i know a person like that)
6) some people's computers crash when a auto start happens
7) nobody should dictate on what other people listen to
8) people should have a choice weather they want to listen to your music

As well as these points listed by Wynn ( 9900) on this page:
http://www.torncity.com/forums.php?forumID=1&ID=3934870&start=333

ItĀ“s not just the "i cant be bothered to press stop" thatĀ“s an issue, everyone doesnt have a speedy connection ( such as myself) and having your whole browser frozen just cause someone had a flash scrip running when you entered their site is not exactly user friendly. They are a nuisance, pure and simple

Now i know, your probably just a happy guy that cant help bopping along to that jonas brothers CD you just bought, and feel that every living soul on TC should take part in this too, by jumping to your profile etc etc. However...A good part of TC doesnĀ“t.

Furthermore, that player is not a part of a service offered by TC, itĀ“s a flash script originating from ... whereever. They donĀ“t even have to let you use them at all, itĀ“s not a right you have, itĀ“s a priviledge, so dont cry over having lost nothing.

Yep, but all those things listed are excuses and selfishness. They are choosing to click on a persons profile to begin with..... It's not like they are FORCED to click on a profile. Even if they are forced. Just hit "stop" and it's over. Not a big deal really. Just people complaining like usual.

I click on profiles myself where i don't like the music. Most of the time I just close the profile. Not hard to do at all. Just people being selfish is all it is. Then again that's the way of the world.

Freedom to create your own profile is priviledge? All the games i saw u can create your own profile. So i don't see how i should get happy and jerk off over being able to create a profile.... sorry

I'll go back to listening to my Jonas Brothers cd now
