Post Shoutbox • Posted: Sun Oct 21, 2007 8:02 pm
I know you've probably heard this a bajillion times, but i think it could help the forum, if two members engage into a conversation Via Shoutbox, they are going to stay longer, and potentially post more while they're here... I just think it could increase activity, usually its the opposite, but its worth a try.

Pros:

1) Something some people would find more attractive about the place
2) Can cut down on unneeded posts, just look at the whole 'spam epidemic' of July 2007.
3) Just dang effecient.

Cons:

1) These too can be spammed
2) well uh...some people find it unattractive actually
3) >.< I can't think of more

I am one who actually thinks shoutboxes are nice to have, now shoutbox + EDN sounds like something I'd like to see, maybe that is.

Agreed, if we can get enough members to say they want it, perhaps we can get one.

I agree that there should be a shoutbox or at least an interactive chat room or sumthin. This will also cut back on not only the threads and forums like stated above, but also on PMs in our inbox which may be appreciative

An interactive chatroom, I take it that that would count as a shoutbox except not as...ugly? Would it possible be a separate page or something on here, well not page, but a link off from the forums. It would all be in real time and all that and much more, maybe, I'm not exactly sure what the difference would be except less of an eyesore to the forum.

Personal messages? meh, I don't get that many anymore anyway, won't help me there XD.

It might be made possible with a portal, but otherwise it would be tough.

A shoutbox gives people a reason to stick around, they see people chatting, they stay, check out some topics, post... I think it would work great.

it would be useful. It'll probly be spammed at first, but i think it could be a useful tool for the site. However, it might be an eyesore to Darth's encredible layout. I like the idea of houseing it in a portal: check out what's new in the Underwoods, see the newest member, this that things and such, and give a shout out while you're there

for some reason i've never been able to get into a java chatroom with other members when their's instant messangers

The shoutbox would go in the forums, not on the main site. Only users that signed up would get to use it, not random people. :P

Yes a Shoutbox would be a nice thing to have, it could possibly bring more people, or it could repel more, we will never know unless we try. Worth a shot 'eh? I would think it would bring more people but that is just me..........

We seriously need a shoutbox, we need to cut back on the whole spam as in mini convos in relevant, worthy topics, not pointing fingers here though, but check out say...the Welcome board and stuff >.>. It's really eating at me XD
