    It works both ways. The other way is more common but this isn't simple math, there's more than one correct answer. I think, I'm a freshman in HS so I'm not too sure.
    I think you are right. Good point. It isn't clear cut right or wrong.

    But one screams 'Im a noob at English!' and the other says 'I speak normally.' And this tweak is very much the former.

    Haha so I would rather not have a tweak that visually looks like a person with 3rd grade English speaking skills made it.
    Have a random themeing/jaku question? Hit me up on twitter to avoid an off topic post. I am glad to help.

    Yeah. I see what you're saying. And I realized the difference, your using 'playing' as a verb and it's using it as an adjective, very uncommon; but still right lol

    there is no possible way to describe "No playing music" as correct in English. it must be "NOT playing music" or "No music playing". Using "playing" as an adjective in this case is utterly ridiculous. You would have to be personifying "music" in order for that argument to valid. If this is the case "No playing music" would mean "The music-which-has-been-given-form and is in the act of 'playing' is not allowed/must not be"... people need more education.

    Great comment thanks for the input.
    I knew it sounded ridiculous

    Why did this turn out into a Grammar Nazi conquest? Chill. What's important is people get it. Not how professors would grade it.
