Default Shoutbox

Can we have a shoutbox on frontpage?
Sometimes it's just good tool to give shouts for people to join some game without making a topic about it or if you don't have everyone in your Steam or Xfire.

And just for some banter and abuse too.
It was quite popular on our last site. Just an idea.

Not on this site you havent.

I used to use the old E107 one quite a bit and is quite good for "informal" chit chat...

In fact, if you can get a front page module for the chat box which is in the big forum list, it'd mean no extra forum mods and give a shoutbox.

Just an idea like.....

Yeah but I'm a lazy tw@t and if it's not on the front page.... I never use that view anyway unless I'm making a new thread, otherwise it's new posts all the way.

well must agree with geoff there, this site is only a couple of months old, and the old site did have one on front page but rarely used at all.

since this new site has been going there was one in the forum page, but again, never used
maybe worth giving it a go now we have more people on board who seem to be making more of an effort on the website than most of the old members who disapear from lan to lan,and never seen or heard of in between, other than us usuall ones that post all the time

If it's not a too big of an effort, it would be nice to give it a try atleast.
And definately frontpage is where the shoutbox belongs

isnt it just easier to text each other than give shout outs....
which gives me a good idea - has everyone got each others no's?
Should we add phone no's to the FB group or something - its a good way for instant comms?
