    I've read a lot of people talking about the shoutbox here on GBAtemp, and I always thought it was something elusive, but I saw in my options 'Enable Shoutbox' and it was. Further searching has lead me to believe it's on the main page, but I still don't see it. Am I missing something? Is it A Firefox thing?

    It should be on the right side of the screen on the main page if you scroll down.

    If not, log off and log in.

    Thanks for the replys guys, but logging off didn't do it. I'm not using the latest Firefox if that means anything. Could it be a cookies thing? I don't think so, I have them enabled, but I suppose it could be something having to do with that.

    If you're so sure its Firefox, use another browser then.

    Well, I installed the latest Internet Explorer. It didn't work, but I learned a valuable lesson. I thought the IE bashers were exaggerating, but it took about three times as long to start and log into GBAtemp than Firefox.

    I really thought they would've caught up in the past few years.

    Several people seem to have this problem for some reason. If nothing gets it to show up on the portal you can just load it in a tab.

    Be prepared for lots of intelligent comments and highbrow wit.

    Working ok for me, give it a day or so, see if anything changes. You have more than 100 posts, so you should be fine in that respect.

    Also, hadn't realised this was a couple of days old.

    Well, although it's never worked before, the shoutbox showed up this morning.

    If this is the work of an Admin/Mod, Thanks! [​IMG]

    If not, I retract my gratitude [​IMG]
