Hello, am I able to have music play when someone/I visit my profile and my talk page? :P If so, please tell me what I can do so I'm able to do this. Thanks guys. MikeyRouge-3 14:50, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

You are one of those, aren't you? Silly animated icons, images of flowers and pandas in every page, images of "under construction" and annoying songs from anime crap...
The answer to your question is: no. You can put a sound file (ogg format) but the person visiting the page has to click on it for it to start to play, there is no automatic play.

Sorry Nidek, but your wrong. There's something called Mediawiki. And Templates. Try using those. And before you demand some kind of proof, as i assume your the type of person who wants proof, check here for proof. DrkDragonz66  Talk  Contribs  Call of Duty

Sigh: First of all, the web developer's rant. Never, ever, ever make the music play automatically on a website. Secondly, to actually answer your question, you can add music in OGG format as Nidek mentioned, but there's no way to make it automatically play (thank god). Drk seems a touch misguided, however. MediaWiki is the software that wikis are run on, such as this one right here. Wikia uses a heavily modified version, though it's still the same kind as Wikipedia uses, thus the same syntax. Obviously, being an encyclopedia, Wikipedia would never let music be autoplayed, and Wikia hasn't ruined that yet.

As well, templates can't add sound either. Templates are just completely normal pages in a separate namespace made for the purpose of transclusion (showing this template page on another page). You can even transclude more than just template pages (Using {{Namespace:Pagename}}, so {{Forum:Music Playing Profiles}} would transclude this page, and {{:Community Central}} would transclude the main page). As for your example, Drk, I failed to notice any type of sound; was there supposed to be, or is the example for another point all together? — Hofmic (talk) 04:25, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Hofmic, I think you need to turn your sound up as Drk's profile on Call of Duty wiki does have autoplaying music--GodPray  04:33,10/12/2011 
I would see ironic that people who wants autoplaying sounds on a page would in turn report flashy advertisements with autoplaying sounds. I hope that's not the case, for consistency. I just closed the page when the sound started playing. --Ciencia Al Poder (talk) -WikiDex 10:36, October 12, 2011 (UTC)
The hilarious thing is that after all this misinformation no one has posted the answer to the problem yet. hahahah

The way Drk has the music autoplay on his userpage is by using CoD Wiki's YouTube Player template with autoplay enabled and having the video hidden. 22px-Logo.svg.pngTyA_userpage_image.png Badge-VSTF.svg 15:17, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Also note Drk, that your profile infobox covers up the sidebar modules, and is thus illegal in the eyes of Wikia.    ǝsʞpɐןǝ  (message wall)  15:29, 12/10/2011

Well, it doesn't violate Wikia's terms (the autoplay sound thing) but why so many haters? It's people's likes and dislikes. Mckrongs 07:07, October 14, 2011 (UTC)

As they already said, its the matter of choice. If I want to play music featured and labelled on a User Page or any site, fine. If I wanted to be blasted by loud music or sounds just for opening a thanks. Yami Michael
