just a suggestion -

but the site would be better than perfect if there was a shoutbox where people can just post random stuff (eg. if they got a new achievement..)

soo how 'bout it, then?

I don't think it will happen because people will spam it up and be immature.

Any forums I've been to with a shoutbox have really stupid "shouts" and the people are generally spamtastic with the thing. It also serves no real purpose.

...only if each post if followed by a ban.


On the positive side....keep up with new the ideas, don't be too put of by failure.

^^^That's the End of the Road guys.;)

I've also have been to sites where there is some sort of "Shout Box" and I can tell you this much...its Chaotic! A Staff Member would have to constantly monitor that room to keep it Spam Free.

Nice try though, Chrissy.;)

as JDM said it is the end of the road don't even bother trying to get it passed the dictator has spoken:locked


the problems with a shoutbox is that with a large forum nothing eveer gets done in them and they just get tons of things that all say "hey" they work fine with about 40-50 people total on a forum but with our large number it will never happen because the statement would pass once and then it would be gone so you would never be able to read anything

Big sites like DeviantArt (not sure if it still has one) that have shoutboxes are kinda pointless. There are so many people on that if you wait two seconds and hit refresh it is all new shouts. Your shout may be read by one person before it is bumped off and even that is unlikely.
