It is also customize-able to fit your needs.


Classic Snow Fall

In your footer at the very end, below

Suggestion:

If you know your community has a lot of mobile web users, such as Apple iPod, setting the snow fall value count to 20 works best. (original value is 35).

No issues have been found with quick reply.

I use quick reply and even Advance Quick Reply
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=264219

All without any issue.

Are you sure you added this code on the very bottom of your footer? There should be no code (zero code) below it. This is designed to be the very last thing to load on your site as to avoid any conflict or load issues.

If you are sure, please send me a PM with a user name & password. Limited Admin access with permission to edit styles maybe also helpful and I can review what else you may have.

I'm not 100% sure if I understand your question.

Did I write this?
Yes, long ago.

Do I claim ownership to this code?

No, I release this and all of my modifications under the terms of open source. Anyone and everyone is free to use, distribute, edit, customize, re-use, modify, incorporate, and otherwise use or credit or lack of, as they see fit.

I'm not sure if I understand your reply...

Did I write this?
Yes, long ago.
Did you write this from scratch entirely OR found it on a site that stated you could use it freely? If it was a site such as I described please post a link.

Do I claim ownership to this code?
No, I release this and all of my modifications under the terms of open source.
If you wrote it "long ago" then you should claim ownership unless you found this elsewhere as I mentioned above so let us know because I'm simply confused .

I wrote it over 10 years ago, but claim no ownership.... ie... I don't care who uses it, modifies it, incorporates it, or credits it or lack of.

You can indeed find the code by doing a Google search and you'll find the very same code, but with over 100 different site's claiming ownership.

You take your pick and decide how you wish to proceed.

Actually I did just that well before I posted since we received a report and came to the conclusion that it was shown on many sites with some showing more code and "copyright" code in it that was not to be removed and some that did not and matched your posted code 100%. I did not mean to deceive you (well not the evil kind lol) by not stating I knew all of this in advance however sometimes you catch a wolf in sheep's clothing doing that and sometimes you can be mistaken which seems like the case here although it was not a mistake on my part nor yours as it seems.

My reply to someone earlier today via PM:

Have a look at this - http://rainbow.arch.scriptmania.com/...ow_fall_1.html

Now can you tell me if he copied from the site you linked to or the one I did... see how on the site I link to the code is exactly as he has it posted? So based on that we could possibly search some more and see more sites w/ the code stating it was free to use - if it were copied code from vBulletin for example we could say for sure but with what I just linked to I can't say one way or another so I've decided to leave it up and wanted to let you know that I felt it could be honest as well so we should at least give the benefit of the doubt .

Sincerely,
TheLastSuperman

My reply to someone earlier today via PM:
I completely understand and respect your concern.

I also understand that for many here, taking credit for their work is very important. But for me it's not so important.

This script I released long go into the wild... ie... It was meant as a holiday gift to whoever thought they could use it or felt they could benefit from it.

I'm not sure how I could ever prove that, but its been passed around so much and so often now, that I doubt anyone else could prove or disprove it either. And honestly, I see no point or reasoning in trying.

It pops up again around the holidays as it can be expected. Copyrights added, removed, changed, and the code sometimes completely in its original form or mixed with others.....

I never sought any credit for it. I'm still happy that it works and people like it.... That's good enough for me.

Not a code update, but an optimized suggestion. As I know many of you will start using this on Christmas Eve.

Suggestion:

If you know your community has a lot of mobile web users, such as Apple iPod, setting the snow fall value count to 20 works best. (original value is 35).
