  • Shout Box

    Idk about anyone else here but I think these things are pretty cool and TG would fit it well
    It's just something were you can discuss with the whole community with out actually having to post a thread.
    I think you guys should look into getting one.

    Disciple - Bush? Is that some sort of slang for women? - Hahaha I love disciple.

    btw Bush = worst president ever.

    I find them amusing. Like IRC without the channelsplits and the trouble of actually fiddling with an IRC client.

      They turn into a complete mess when you have 30 people all having their own conversations. Then could you imagine people that get banned nightly who would just spam that box with nothing but immature crap over and over.....yeah no that would get old.
      that sounds like a good idea trooper.

        I never found use for one. I go to a website forum or newsgroup or mailing list precisely because I can't be watching a ticker 24/7. For near-realtime I'll go with IRC, where I can still scroll back to reconstruct the conversation.

        Now what might be interesting is to display recent IRC activity in a box on the TG home page. That would give incentive for people to connect to the channel to answer the provocative things said there. ;)

          Ok, feeling good. To be honest, I think it'd become a jumbled mess, although, if we could find a way to divide it to certain forum areas, it'd probably be less congested.

            shoutboxes have never worked on any forum i've been registered on.

              Apophis is testing out a Flash Chat thing. It's pretty much the same thing but with the versatility of IRC

              It's got a couple of bugs but usually a lot of refreshes solves them :)

                Been on many a site that had shout boxes.
                The sites got rid of them.
                Don't miss them one bit.

                This is my rifle.
                There are many like it, but this one is MINE.
                My rifle is my best friend. It is my life.
                I must master it as I must master my life.
                My rifle without me is useless. Without my rifle, I am useless.
