Would it be at all possible to have a little widget somewhere on the boards that shows the newest posts/newest topics that have arisen in the last 'x' amount of time? I think this would be cool and also attention catching for some people to see what posts have been made while sitting at the shoutbox.

Mostly this one is for DC and those shoutbox seats seeing as I have got no word from you Master Citrus in the other suggestion topic :p.

I know that forum motion has a shoutbox, but it doesn't auto-update new threads. But you could still post links.

I think this sounds like a really good idea, ZE. I really hope this can be done, I hate having to refresh the page :P

I love how I jus thad to bump this topic and I finally get a response...

It was posted 3 months ago :P

I just felt that most of the time is spent in the SB and if something nearby updates with newest posts, it'll make you guys actually look around :p

They have something like this on PTH and it works pretty much how zee proposes so it gets my vote.

What's wrong with using the current "View New Posts" link at the top right of the forum? :P

I would think it's too far to scroll to since by the time you get there you'll notice all the forums lit up that you missed ;O.

Or something. This was something I forgot I mentioned a long time ago, I'm more pressy about the Blags :P

Maybe the shoutbox should be moved to the top of the forum. I'd like that a lot better.

That actually sounds pretty epic. Though I imagine it either can't be done or we'll miss something at the bottom of the forum without the SB being there :p.

But yes, if the shoutbox was up there I guess they'd feel more inclined to be more clicky and click to see new posts :P

Yeah, I go to another forum that has a chatbox on the top and I love it. When you leave the forum you can just come right back and you don't have to scroll to it. Also, it would really let newer members feel more welcome here and see us talking the very first moment they join. And, this may sound dumb, but I didn't even know there was a shoutbox for a while when I joined cuz I didn't bother to look way down there. So yes, I think the shoutbox being on the top includes many benefits.

The same happens for a lot of members Zim, though I didn't need direction. :mat:
But yeah I agree.

We have a shoutbox?

I do agree with moving it to the top. 'Twould be quite a good idea.
