eh, that would be cool. but since the admins would have to put certain songs on, i don't really like that idea of that. i wish we could put any song on, but we have to ask an admin first if we can use that song.

I hate to disagree, however, I have always found music on forums and profiles and such annoying...your just searching the web, and you come across a forum that plays music. What i f you're in a public place- and you can't turn it off soon enough?

Maybe if the music played only when you pressed the play button, but then again...it would just become too complicated, having songs approved and such. And plus, I'm not even sure if vBulletin has that option.

I think it would be better just to go without, IMHO. =]

It would be kinda neat, but it could also get annoying. Any time I'm on myspace with my speakers on, I can't help but cringe every time I stop by a friend's profile and hear their profile song blaring. I have really different taste than most of my friends, and I generally prefer my web browsing to be quiet and peaceful. Even on WW, my speakers are usually off.


In reality though, it wouldn't even be possible. In order to put a song on the site, the artist would have to give WI permission to use it. Copyright/trademark laws and all that jazz. The reason that sites like MySpace are able to have profile songs is that the artists or their agents sign up, upload the music, and give MySpace permission for it to be added to profile pages. If a site just puts songs up without permission, the artist can sue them over it, and require that royalties be paid for every time that the song was paid. Yikes.

Nevermind the censoring issues... even if we could get the artists to release WI from having to pay royalties, a mod/admin would have to manually go through every single song and listen for swears or inappropriate content. And then there would be a ton of strain on the servers as well. WI is a free site, and they don't have anywhere near the same advertising revenue as a site like MySpace. How would they be able to keep the site free, and still afford server upkeep, bandwith, storage space, etc? It just wouldn't be possible.


Good idea in theory, but it unfortunately wouldn't translate to reality too well. Thanks for sharing though!

That would be cool, but you would have to check the lyrics of the song, because some may contain swearing or inappropriate subjects. And that would just mean more jobs for the mods. Plus, it would annoy some people (then again, you could have a " mute sound" option!) But rep for your thinking!

That would be awesome, except for some hold backs...
Some parents do not want their kids listening to certain songs they may consider innapropriate. We also wouldnt have the Space, The space is the key.
But overall, I would love if we could have music on our profiles

Well, I am listening to radiodisney right now. and I just realized that they have a selection of songs. And all of those songs are appropriate. What if they have those songs that we choose from?
