mini flags
« on: May 01, 2011, 13:24:33 »
Hi,

 I'm fed up seeing my (very) bad flag that advises a music cannot be downloaded ().
 Can a graphic master, around here, help by fixing this up please ?

 Also, I'd welcome star, advising which music entered a music compo. Or something else, as "a star" was all I could think about ;)

Thanks in advance,
Sylvain

Can you link some pages to see how it is currently displayed ?

Ok, a bit aggressive, sure (:
And you also want a kinda star icon (star won't do the trick IMO as it's too much linked to rating, popularity, favorites etc.) something to stand for compo tunes, right ?

well, yes, the idea was to identify the compo tunes with a small flag thing.
Maybe some one else could have another idea ?

mmm maybe a cube, no, let's spare the cube to flag tunes used in prod (in case you want this kind of filter)

...what could symbolize a compo? ...what about a trophy? Even if a trophy may imply that the tune was ranked in that compo...what do you think?

I do :) though, no music is flag in the DB for that just now. we have quite a few parties set already, so ...

maybe some colored trophy then, like gold for 1, silver for 2, bronze for 3. Now, for the rest, a gray one ?

Okay, thats settled then, I'm afraid grey and silver at small size will surely look the same, but I'll figure out something... black maybe.

No secret, really. He contacted Crown and requested that all his musics shouldn't be available for download anymore.
The "Why" is unclear, but it's not AMP's call.
Several other musicians, like Virgill, asked also for the removal of several musics. Generally, the problem is "unfinished" production got spread by friends :).
