Feature request = Shout Box

Postby UtahJarhead » Mon 14 Mar 2011 4:58 pm

I'd like to see a 'Shout Box' similar to the one used here in the upper-right corner: http://www.snipershide.com/forum/ubbthr ... p?ubb=cfrm

A few samples of code that can be used:
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1334065
http://area51.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic ... 2d71f3b803

Apparently it integrates with phpbb and I love talking to the folks on the snipershide forums because there are fast answers and it seems to support a greater sense of community

Shotboxes are spam heaven. I would use an IRC if you want an live chat.
People say I should not carry because it's not the Wild West. I say I carry because its much worse. Only 3 people died at the at the O.K. Corral and its a part of our nations history. If 3 people died in a 30 sec shootout today It might not make the news.

And if it is used by third parties as spam, then it could be dealt with. Until it's implemented to be tried out, then it's all conjecture as to what 'might' happen.

I want to ban guns because people 'might' use them to kill somebody.

Fair Enough I guess. I work with web hosting and shot boxes are a nightmare. I was just adding my 2 cents. sorry

I don't know anything about this particular phpbb, but I would bet that you could find some way to not show the shout box unless someone was actually logged in. That should solve the spam issue.
