    It's the thing on the home page on the right side. It allows you to chat to other members; slower than a live chatroom but faster than discussing in threads.

    A shoutbox, saybox, tagboard, or chatterbox is a chat-like feature of some websites that allows people to quickly leave messages on the website, generally without any form of user registration.

    I don't like to spam but one time my brother went on my account (I assume) and spammed with a topic in the Off Topic.

    I can access it by hitting the link posted a few posts above, but it's not where Hadrian says it should be, under the sponsors. What gives?

    It might take a while for it to show up, if you're setting it as on in options.
    It takes about a day for the main page to change for me.
