    Fruity Mute for Flames?

    I love the flames music and I know its kinda against the whole idea but i find myself not bothering with flames now if im at work, listening to music, got a headache, want silence, watching something...so uh can we have a mute button please?


    I'm sure i'm not the only one thinking this.

    Turn off your speakers or change the skin
    Only Purple (Flames) has music, you can change it to any other skin.

    Well your other option would be to block javascripts for the site, so really you have like 3 options now on how to mute it

    I could put in a "mute" button easily but you'd have to mute it on each page. There isn't an easy way to mute it in your account settings for example.

    It's not as easy to code as you think, to trigger a javascript option for a particular skin that can simply be set in your account settings. Thanks for the suggestion though but I what you're looking for it frankly a case where the cost outweighs the benefit.

    If you guys send me the code involved I'd be happy to write something that did this.

    Each page that loads in vB calls code from a dozen different places, I couldn't even begin to figure out everything involved let alone share our licensed code with non-license holders.. I think vB Corp. would frown on that on the very small chance they found out. You'll just have to trust me, as a smart person with a strong background in web development and computer programming that it would be a difficult project to undertake.

    Haha. Ok, sure.

    Should that code find it's way to me though, I might be able to do a very good job.

    I hate the flames music and I've never even heard it (the flames skin just crashes my quicktime or something).

    I kind of miss the dickhorse but not enough to put up with any awful web 1.0 type shit.

    Ok I came up with what I think is a good compromise - I made a new skin called Purple (Flames - No Music) - choose that if you want the horse and flames but not the music

    What do you mean make it flames only?
    Our choices as vB admins are to either lock Flames to one specific skin, or allow all skins site-wide.

    yeah hang on something's wrong.

    when we changed over, i had the purple skin and music in flames only, and i think blue for the rest of the site. whatever the default is. i hated the music so i changed to pink panda, but that changed the whole site. how can i make purple (no music) only flames, and the rest of the site blue or pink or whatever i want? is it possible? why was it possible before?

    If you set a skin flames only they can only use that skin and that skin only in flames. People didn't like that and would like it less if it was forced music or forced no music. There is no option that I am aware of to allow a user to pick a skin or from a pool of skins for a particular forum.

    force purple music (with mute function and you have to hit mute for every page). OR just ditch the music and force the purple.

    i don't want a dickhorse on every page of CD, but i do like flames to look like flames.

    Nothing is forced on anyone, you can change the skin in .2 seconds to any skin, and music or no music.
    Are you guys just trolling me at this point? lol

    no look

    having a unique skin forced for flames is good

    forcing music -- not good

    (philosophically, i'm inclined to think that it's better not offering a wanted service than forcing that service on people who don't want it)

    so you have two options:

    (1) force flames purple with music and mute function (annoying that you have to mute it on every page, but manageable)
    (2) force flames purple, no music

    what is not clear here?

    Well you're an admin too so I'll let you get right on that, I will also let you field the complaints from people about having a forced skin, the reason I released that force in the first place

    rick scarf and i talked about it and now finally understand each other

    we'll leave it as it for now is but we are researching the ability for everyone to choose their own independent skin for flames

    Why can't we just force Flames Purple (original) on the whole site. That's what I want.

    Because that's not what everyone wants. A person will not sign up if they don't like the aesthetics of the site.
