Shoutbox anyone?

Postby Lorelei » Thu Dec 08, 2011 09:56

Hey Insidious

I was wondering whether a shoutbox was possible on this website and whether anyone else was interest in it. They can be fun and add a bit of social aspect to the forums.

Awesome job so far, keep up the good work!

ps PM me your e-mail address

The only mod (shoutbox) i can find is the one below and I don't no if that can even be integrated into this site..plus insidious may well not want to.. i think he is trying to keep things simple.

Plus adding more to the boards is giving us more to scroll past, am not sure if he can really add to the left or the right of this design, without spoiling.so a shoutbox is likely to go at the bottom of the site.unless he linked to a seperate page which then hides it.i would imagine, No doubt he will read this later and then yell at me in voice chat lol.

just my two cents...

I am not pro-shoutbox, but that is my two cents. Ok, reason why I am not pro, is because we have the small talk section, which functions perfectly as my shoutbox. Hmmm... I might come with a better reason, but you have to do with this one for now. :lol:

I'll do some digging but I don't think it's possible for this forum configuration. I'm not sure where we would put it on the site without drastically changing the layout.

Anyway, I thought the social aspect to the forums was the spam fest that is Small Talk ? :lol:

Yep, I thought so too.
Also we have the FB chat box.

Shoutboxes do my head in, there is always the wrong number of people using them. Either it's like one person and each comment in there stays there for a week, or it's about a million people and the comments zip along at light speed. Small talk section is more than adequate.
