    I might be doing some work on the shoutbox if I can think of things to add to it.
    So far I've got
    • Detachability
      BBcode IMGs being replaced with a link to the image saying {img}
      Long URLs being replaced with {link}
      A shoutbox post count
      Special name colours for staff
      Putting time and date of shout on mouseover to take up less space
    Please give me more ideas!

    Give everybody who uses it the power the cubin has: the double post. [​IMG]

    I was thinking themes or colour schemes?

    Pages! (like next 20, previous 20, etc). At the moment, you can only scroll to the bottom of the default box, or see all messages all the way back to when the shoutbox was opened. If the comment you're looking for has only just disappeared off the bottom it seems like a waste to load the entire history just for that [​IMG] (if it's possible)

    On my resolution the bottom bit cuts the next arrows onto the next line (1024x768 [​IMG])
