That's actually a suggestion for the forum not DoF. It would be nice if you could chat real time with forum members that are online the same time you are. I've seen the feature in other forums and it was pretty neat. :cool:
Found the link to that thing. http://www.cbox.ws/

Well, at the moment it's plausible but later as the forums get more and more full it could become a problem. Chat boxes also drastically increase page loading time.

No they don't :D At least not over here. Of course, in the ever-so undeveloped colonies we have in the west, they might not be able to load stuff like that. No worries, Jap, technology will reach you in about a year or 200 ;) :D

I like the idea of a shoutbox.

Meh, they always tack on an extra 15 seconds to loading time for me...even with a 1000K connection...

Never had the problem with extra loading time even though my net speed is less than 1mb/s..

1000K is peanuts, my connection is 100,0 Mbps

I'm probably going to try and put it on it's own page. Not on every page like Eye-Candy guild's is. I was very confused when I first got there and signed up for the chatbox, thinking I was signing up for the forum, and when I tried to post it didn't work... lets just say as someone who's very web-inclined I felt very stupid.

Well the best use of one I've seen in a forum is putting a link to it on the bottom of the forum and the chat box opens in a new tab. Though I've never had my own webpage or used that site so can't help you Ryan.

Yes but it would be better to have chatbox spam than post spam. (Like when I,Sparrow,jap and WKOA were online at the same time)

Yeah that was pretty bad. But I agree with SM, a chat box would cut down spam topics.

Come guys just stop. Maybe someone can make a petition to Ryan or Josseph about the chat box.
