I used to like to click on the Complete Music Box links and just listen to them. I have now noticed that I can no longer do this as I have to download them.

Could a listen feature be added for those who don't want to download?

that would mean making a zip file of each album, which doesn't sound too bad to me.

isn't better to share the complete music box as loseless flac file? It exists some copies of the complete music box as loseless version. Currently this site have only the mp3 files as 128kbits.

I was considering a per album full download. I do have the .flac version of The Complete Music Box but not enough webspace to host these as well.

I think a per album download would be best.  Also Winzip only works for free for a limited trial period, so I would imagine .zip files can only be opened by people who have bought the software.

Not really, Urusei0Yatsura. I can't remember where I got it from and even though it still appears that annoying "buy winzip. 40 day-trial over" message. I close that and it's all good. Try searching on youtube and I'm sure a tutorial will show you how to get full winzip for free.

Paying for a program to unzip your files? oh please :hehe
Use this one instead http://www.7-zip.org/
this program is free so no worrying about 40 day trials.
Very lightweight and its implemented within the right-click menu. But if you want to associate the program with the .zip, .rar or .7z you'll have to do it manually.
winzip was always troublesome for me, so I changed to 7zip and loved it ever since

I'm using WinRAR too (Registered). A per album download is the most easy to accomplish. I'm still looking for a solution to listen to a .mp3 instead of downloading it first. A kind of streaming for example. I'll look into this as well as the download per album option.

More suggestions?

I use WinRAR 3.6x only for unpacking archives. Is a registered version from a pc magazine (it was free for everyone), that applies only on 3.6x, but 7-Zip is OpenSource, have better compression and can handle UTF-8 Names (example for japanese or chinese characters).

I tried downloading 7zip from that particular link, but when I did McAfee Site Advisor told me it contained a dangerous program, so I didn't download. Download 7zip from here http://download.cnet.com/7-Zip/3000-2250_4-10045185.html?tag=mncol which according to McAfee site advisor and Norton Anti-Virus is safe. Isn't it time windows contained an unzipping program as standard by now?

if we have the Music box sitting there why not making a radio player in the sidebar? I would be glad if it didn't play automatically since its annoying when I open multiple tabs

and if you want to stream the mp3's I'm sure you encountered into this

If that "radio" idea goes forward, whether it plays or not and what music does it play should be arranged by each member.

and the time zone thing that you showed had the same error.
as far as any fixture or new feature I can't come up anything right now
but it had me thinking, this site activity has been on and off at times with mostly the same people
and up until now I've liked the rhythm this site and how things have been up until now.
but wouldn't it be better to add that speck of salt to attract more visitors, because we know the content is there but for me it doesn't seem that it appeals visitors much to make them register and take part in the forums
but this is some random thought I had....

Timezone link was my fault. It took you to my profile. You can edit your timezone from your profile.

Attracting people to register and take part in discussions has always been a problem since the start of the forums back in 2004 and maybe in the older versions as well.

Some boards need to be re-disabled to visitors as before and to download you need to be registered as well. This does not apply to the picture-galleries from the left-menu.

I'll see what I can do after I have finished the updates to the site. There's so much to do in so little time. I hope to have it completed somewhere around upcoming Wednesday.

the color scheme is great but having UY themed skin would be better. but it would be much work designing buttons backgrounds and such and maybe the need of flash. it could look fancy, but it could compatibility issues with other browsers or a longer loading times. something easy would be to at least add an icon relating to the section, like the gallery could have a picture icon right beside the name.

well I mean UY is mainly comedic slapstick with a bit or romance, that's just my opinion though. I know the links are the bar in the top, but the first page looks a bit lonely, not saying  that I want the first page overpopulated with links and misc stuff but it kind of needs a bit more added.

@janus: I agree with you to attract more visitors to the site and such. I'll check for another background image which fits the movies/series a bit better than the current one. Got your PM: No harm, no vow ;)
The main-page should be an automatic redirect (which isn't one yet) to the news-page where all the new goods are promoted and such. When it is auto-directing, there's not much use for putting extra links. But that's just my opinion.

Well, let's see what others come up with. Remember, it's for the visitors by the visitors. Input from you guys/galls is quite important for me to make this a site which is worth visiting. It stayed up since 1996 and I'll keep it on-line as long as I can afford it.

But hey, let's get on with the input

another addition you might add if possible changing the static image, either every month or every other page.
instead of leaving lum-chan all the work we could all suggest or submit an image that could either fit as a tile or the recommended resolution

Great Idea! I'll see if it can be done automatically each month (change background) or just manual after a poll running for 30 days.

You guys pick some nice images? I need at least 12 of them.

You might be pleased to hear I'm almost done with the redo of 'The Complete Music Box'. When finished, you can download the songs as you did just before this post, but when updated, you can find an extra link-icon just behind every song to download/stream directly to your default mp3 player.

Just give me some extra time to fix these pages...

Edit:
Fixed all the pages for 'The Complete Music Box'. Enjoy!
