    Just wondering if this might be something that would be feasible to have installed here?

    I have it installed on my board and it doesn't take too long to install, unless you have several skins because you have to edit the "/Skin/s#/skin_boards.php" file for EACH skin.

    Heres a link to the page where you can get the zip file for it at ibresource.com, but you'll need to sign up for the message board if not already signed up:

    http://www.ibresource.com/?pg=db&mod=832

    OR

    If you don't want to do that, I put it on my webspace:

    Shoutbox zip on me webspace

    I figured I'd suggest this to add a little bit of variety here and it can be used to chat instead of using off topic spammy threads to talk.

    That would cool, I think. Give people a place to generally talk to each other without posting topics or use IRC (for those that are unable to use it).

    Trune here,

    Yes, I've used this on a few forums,
    It really is a handy feature to have when you just want to..
    "Shout Out" haha...

    i personally don't like the idea of the shout box, we have a forum, we have an irc channel, everything you need is there [​IMG]

    Trune here,

    Guess so,
    But it would cut down on pointless spam [​IMG]
    And considering the fact that I don't go into the IRC channel much anymore until the weekends, its not livley until then..

    Shoutbox sounds good, but there will be loads of spamming.
