    Forum shoutbox - yes or no?

    So yeah, I've been debating this in my head for like the past month, and still haven't come to a good conclusion... so I shall ask my lovely members!

    Would you like a shoutbox to be added to the forums? Why or why not?

    I'd vote not - cause we have an entire forum to cover what we can do on a shoutbox.

    Yeah, we already have IRC and the forums, I don't see the point in that. :x

    Shoutbox probably will just become a hassle with all the spam and stuff it might/will get DX If people want to "shout" they can come to the irc channel :D

    IRC requires either loading the Javachat, or having an IRC client.

    And if you don't want to use IRC, then there's the forum just sitting there :eek:
    Shoutboxes are always a hassle IMO :x

    DATS.US is friendly forum for talking about other things, Staff aren't harsh (and i wish, that will be foor forever), so we don't need a second SB IMO.

    I never understood the need for shout boxes anywhere, do people actually read the comments?

    I vote no.

    I vote no, just to save the server's resource.

    The shoutbox though not needed, I still like it, it's a place where we can all go and let out and talk about things we cant or wouldst on the forums. little shouts and such wouldn't be considered post worthy if on the forum, so thats why it belongs in the shout box.

    It's something like a chat room, only as a part of the forum itself. It sits off to the side and people can post messages that don't have to be of any particular topic inside of it.

    I like shout boxes, personally. It's a nice way to talk those actually on the board, without having to use messengers or a full on chat room.

    I never find much use for them. And it's just another thing to load, even if it's like .00000001 milliseconds extra.

    I vote yes. Nobody really chats in the IRC. It's just all fserv triggers, and botspam D:

    I'd like one. But in a forum, no. Doubt there's much use in a forum.
