Shoutbox

I was wondering would it be possible to add a shoutbox, i've seen it on a number of other forum based websites, basically a sort of inbuilt msn/real-time messaging board on the homepage but also shown within each page regardless of where you are. Continually self updating (but does not refresh the whole page) only the shoutbox.

if you need pictures or anything let me know and i will get some screenshots.

Re: Shoutbox

I suggested this back in May 2006 BUT was told that it was pulled by the author for using too many resources.

Maybe things have changed since then.

Re: Shoutbox

But like a live chat, on a forum, but without having to resort to IRC.

Re: Shoutbox

Oh, I see. I learn something every day!

Not sure I can see the benefit of having one with so many sections on the forum already, and it looks like it would be open to abuse without moderating.

Re: Shoutbox

from what ive seen its open to all mods.so as long as a mod is online they can moderate any comments.
hence why i would go with only registered users.
doesnt really affect sections as it would just live around where the ads are now
