Default Shoutbox issues

I agree with geoff that the shoubox is having a detrimental effect on the forums and its use. Please understand that although the shoutbox is quick and easy all comments are deleted after a few hours/days as they drop off the bottom and therefore cannot be seen as activity. If we want people to become part of the community we have to show them we are active by posting on the forums.

Just my point of view but its become a bit of a ghost town since the shoutbox went onto the front page.

to be honest i cant see the point of it, most of us have xfire, messenger etc and if i have anything to say i would type to you personally or put it in the forums
but thats just my personal opinion of course and i am an old fart

I don't understand what's so wrong about it but bin it if u want. For me it's just another way of socializing. Like sitting in a pub and just chatting with everyone and not writing letters every damn time you want to say something. It's not like Xfire. Xfire or other messaging tools are to chat with someone in person. Not a lot of you.

But as said, you may aswell bin it if it gives you such a rash.

I quite like it and think it'd be a shame to bin it, but that said, the community can at times be quiet anyway. It's only been there for a while so a review already may be a little hasty!

If we started a thread in the forums, there would be no topic for it to follow and it'd be full of inane chatter about no particular subject.

i dont think the shoutbox is the reason for lack of forum posts really, 99% of the forum post leading up to november was either F1 2010 and black ops, now both games are out and issue's with the games discussed many times on forums nothing to type about at the mo, plus christmas and the drag of people going back to work i suppose.

i dont have a problem with the shoutbox to be honest and i certainly dont think its the reason for lack of forum posting, and i think it should be kept as quite a few enjoy it, just not my thing thats all.

saying that, if the conversation was interesting or funny enough i might even join in on the g-vet twitter one day who knows ?
