Shoutbox/Chatbox #MakeItHappen

  1. Shoutbox helped me alot on MP since I was kinda lazy on some days. When people made threads it pops up in the Shoutbox and it adds personality to a member when you talk to them in the Shoutbox instead of having to PM them over & over again. SHOUTBOX #MAKEITHAPPEN

  4. Won't happen. Decreases activity on the site.

  6. Dude, I was on the SB a lot and I was still posting lots of messages in threads. Maybe it should be a little test here and see if anything changes?

  7. We actually had it last month, lol.
    But it's up to Crayo for now aka the admin. One of the reasons he doesn't have it is because he hates it.
  8. Some of us chat with one another on Skype, so if you feel like connecting with your friends outside of the forum, you could do that in place of the shoutbox.
  9. Yeah, I use Skype quite a lot actually. But it is still cool to have a quick chat in the SB if you know what I mean.
  10. Yeah I understand where you're coming from. I'm part of another forum community that has a shoutbox and it has its advantages. However, if the admins here decide that it's not right for this forum, at least there's different avenues you can use to stay in touch with your friends on the forum :obama:
  11. I really don't want it, it took away from the activity on MP, and I don't want the same to happen here.

  12. Not trying to sound like a douche, but the only people who have recommended a ShoutBox are from MP.
    We usually communicate here via Xbox, PS3, Skype, PM Convos, Groups or Certain threads.
    I actually made a thread for you guys, btw, I'm not hating you guys, lol.
    Just want you to know where we're coming from.
  13. :ksi: Skype is your friend in times like this.
  14. Haha I kind of figured that mostly MP members would ask for the SB. It was a place that I used to bond with a lot of people. But it's all good man.

  15. :lol1: Yeah I guess so
  16. I expected most members to want an SB, in some cases, that's the only reason they used the forum.
  17. I'd find a ShoutBox hard to keep up with when their are around 70 members chatting with one person at a time. Which is what I did when we had a ShoutBox. Might as well have a group conversation or skype IMO.
  18. Shoutboxes results in so many out-of-order arguments. People seem to go overboard. If we were ever to install one, it'd be for legends only probably. I like the fact that it says "X just made a new thread", but I am not a fan of the arguments, and the lack of forum activity that comes with it.

  19. To be honest, the SB was the stem of a lot of MP drama that ultimately led to its demise, I wouldn't want a similar fate at WWEF.

  20. A chat-box or shout-box can only be used by responsible, mature posters. Even then it takes away from the posts on the actual site.
