    Normally, I am not a fan of a shoutbox on a forum, but that could very well just be because I visit the "wrong" forums with very immature members.

    However, what regards this forum, I think it could be nice to have a shoutbox - getting in contact with users easier and a lot more.

    It is simply a suggestion and I would have no problem with it getting denied.

    What do you other members think of this?

    I think it is good idea. This is pretty specified forum, so there shouldn't so many people acting immature.

    Shoutboxes are generally good on most sites, but when it comes to forums it often is the main reason for the forums to die overtime. It lowers activity, and takes away from the community.

    I agree with you both. As michalpatryk said, the users here will, hopefully, be mature and able to behave like adults.

    Xyphien, I am with you on that one. Often a shoutbox will lead the posts on the forums to decrease - perhaps this will be an idea to keep in mind and perhaps make available in the future if needed - or if enough people request it. We will see.

    A shoutbox may just be what we need for the first activity boost. As of now there are too few posts to actually do something on this website and it will allow new users to get to know each other, which will lead to them staying for the community.

    If you are afraid it will kill the forums over-time, you can always remove it later on once this forum has found some activity!

    The shoutbox would make it so no one would put the effort into creating new topics as well as posting, Thus making it empty still. Also, taking it away over time would make more people angry than not having a shoutbox to begin with.

    If more people want this however, I may consider it.

    I think we should hold off on it personally, wait till it gets bigger before trying it out.
