    Part of the extra features that was removed.
    I miss it too but I feel there was a good reason it was dropped

    My guess it that it will come back. But Kevin wanted to finally get the site back online before setting up any extra features.

    Site needs to be online at least a fee weeks to restore confidence before I mess with it.

    IOW "let's restore things one by one and wait until we get haxxored again so we can find out which addon's to blame"? :p

    We were looking to switch to a better shoutbox plugin anyway. Of course, a shoutbox on a forum is about as much use as a cock-flavoured lollipop.

    And quit using Photobucket for your sig. You've clearly been sharing too much dickbutt on there and they are just spam advertising their site :p

    can't you guys create a new form of chatbox? Like a javascript button that opens a frame or something on one of the sides, using either something completely external or a web irc client so you don't have to link it to any of the databases? there's stuff like mibbit irc and stuff for example, cgi::irc too. there's ways to do this without potentially compromising your shit

    if you guys do that, try to make the new frame stay open while browsing topics

    i never really used the shoutbox in the first place, but it feels like something is missing

    Why not just create a Discord and maybe put up a sticky with a link to that?

    I mean, I don't judge people and their specific tastes. Different strokes ;)
