A shoutbox would be cool

3 posts in this topic

I think it would nice to have a shoutbox somewhere on the main page.

 

If you don't know what a shoutbox is, it is just a text box...that's all

The shoutbox could replace the status updates too since they are slightly alike

But people may like having facebook like status update, so maybe not

From my experience with running many other communities, most people use the status update feature as a shoutbox. This version of the software even allows "statuses" to be branched into formatted conversations (fitting for outside forum topics) which is even better than a simple shoutbox (and cleaner). :)

I guess that is true.

 

I still like the shoutbox idea since I feel like it is easier to get into it initially.

Also I like how shoutbox is just a continuous live conversation rather than sticking conversations onto status updates. Plus with status update conversations will get buried with 5 updates, but with shoutbox the conversation will keep bumping itself up until it dies naturally or topics are switched
