Hey, sorry if I shouldn't post here, I saw some non-mod/admin posters and this is the forum section so, anyway. I'm wondering if a shoutbox would be a feasible option? I'm on another forum that has one and it's a lot of fun, saying HELLO ACEN WORLD and stuff like that lol, well it would be anyway.

Could/might it happen?

Eee thanks for the support ^_^ nah I don't think it would get that crazy. I've seen shoutboxes with auto and manual refresh, so it could be a choice of the user whether they can/want to handle it.

It's a "intheforums" chat thingy. It's like aim/msn/yahoo, but on the forums. Makes chatting with people REALLY easy. :D

Yea. Think of the Fast Reply box, only filled with messages with the user name and time stamp. You can set maximum characters and other options like size and position. Typically they go on the top of all the sections for everyone to see, though you can place them on sides or bottoms or even have multiple boxes within different sections, if that might sound like a more efficient option, since I've found this forum to be almost like a village. Some people go all around it, while others hang in specific areas, whether it be by section or content.

If you see someone getting too out-of-line, please hit the Report button. We've already sent out a lot of warnings/suspensions/bannings to people who were doing nothing but flame the boards.

I'm all over that. Those report buttons are one of the best ideas ever. Too bad people can't just express their opinions without getting rude and ignorant to each other.
