    The Shoutbox

    Hi guys, I have disabled the Shoutbox as it is the apparent source of our forum's performance-related issues. If the forum runs smoothly within the next few days, the Shoutbox will not be reinstated.

    Ciao,

    Sadly, this is true, the forums are much smoother now.

    RIP Shoutbox To quote Durai: "You will be in our hearts and minds."

    Bad jokes aside, it was a great idea by Tim and a great way to talk to each other. Not to mention it relieved Jimmy of his lonely feelings few times.

    I know Durai, if it wasn't for those wise words you dropped the other day, I don't know what I'd be doing now.

    It's in times like this fond memories are what you keep in your heart and positive memories is what you keep in your mind.

    Wasn't really a regular on the shoutbox so others will definately miss it more then I will, but it's a shame that it seems that was the problem for the server slowing down too often.

    What's that phrase? "It was fun while it lasted"?

    The Shoubox was the one place where I could be king of the hill with regards to post counts. However, even my position as chief chatter was usurped by Hamed himself.

    How about we just put a member limit (and ban all the crappy members who have like 2 posts in the video thread), or ask people who want to be members to write an essay on why they would be a good member to the forums? If they're pretty crappy then don't let them join...then we can have a smoother running forums and have our shoutbox back

    I mean, it's the only place where Durai feels like he belongs

    Yeah Mike, I wish this could be so.

    Unfortunately, the real problem is the script proper. The forum slows down even when nobody is using the Shoutbox.

    You are so mean!

    The shoutbox was very convenient, but I never really liked it. After all, most of us used it because we were bored. What's the arcade for then? I bet no one has ever played an arcade game, except those that had records taken away, after the shoutbox came in...

    A statistic which pales in comparison to the time taken for you to amass 1000 posts.

    What was it, a week?

    Really? I thought it was the opposite way round

    So why don't make some people post all day long on it!

    I'm sure that there are other shoutbox alternatives out there

    What, from the Shoutbox? That can't be done.

    Besides, my previous reply to Mike explains that even if if were possible, it still wouldn't solve the forum's problem.
