Re: Member location

The idea of a shoutbox has been brought up before. You'd need to petition Brian. I'm against the idea, personally. I don't see what it would add to the community. In fact I could see it having a detrimental effect - folks having discussions in the shoutbox, then going on to threads to carry it on (or indeed, carrying the discussion from a thread to the shoutbox), there'd be no continuity for another member to come into the conversation...

Tain't broke...

Did somebody mention Pie.

Shoutbox?

I agree with Cul.

(now obviously my endorsement matters not a jot. However, I've fresh baked Fertwhurler here, to back it up)



Just discovered, the decent quote box is also back. Marvelous this is all just win win

Ursa: Shoutbox
Then its agreed, I'll be Py, you can be Your Mighty Greenness, Lord of the Tentacles

How many tentacles do you have anyway, must be a lot for you to be the lord of them. I'm sure the octopi and squids are very reverent.

Re: Member location

All you need to know is that Pyan the Moderator (that would be Py) is well armed....


As for shoutboxes, I'm with Cul if shoutboxes mean discontinuity in threads. (It can be hard enough following some threads as it is without wondering if content vital to one's understanding is somewhere else.)

Re: Member location

Well 3 cheers to Ursa to pointing that out,just need to see if it works no my phone! As for the Shoutbox well i came across that no a tarantula forum i post on. It doesn't take away from posts on their. I don't use it that much but its handy for a quick query or bo important announcement accessible to all,instantly. When viewing this forum's main page i find a lot gets missed unless you go into the sub headings. For example two people might have made new posts in say Classic SF but if another thread in General is more active then those other threads won't be seen unless you look for them.

I don''t see how a shoutbox would help in that situation - are we talking about the same thing? It sounds like you mean something like the 'new posts' page.

I kinda think a shoutbox would be like having The Asylum in a sidebar on every page. Fun but not really adding anything.

More like the "Shout your Frustrations" thread I'd have thought, which is one of the finer threads to waste what little time we all have left.

Re: Member location

I normally login and go straight to new posts. This lets me view all posts made since I've been away.

It also means I must pop in regularly (so the pages of missed posts don't overwhelm me ).

I love this place, it's so chilled (most of the time ).

Wait I'm confused, is this the same thing as the New Posts link that is in between Gallery and Search on the bar above?

Re: Member location

I think so. I don't know any others, but I'm still finding my way around here, to be fair. I only spotted the New Posts button a couple of weeks ago and wondered what it did
