Shout Box

Shout Box is a quick "chat" type of communicator that lets you "shout out" to the BB and have live conversations with those who are logged in.

The SB stores only the last 30 messages, and then they are gone forever.

Users can delete their own shouts using the [x] button next to their name. Mods can delete any/all shouts.

You can see when a shout was posted by hovering over the message.

UBB Code does NOT work in Shout Box, so you cannot bold or italics, add images, etc.

You can use the standard smilies by using the keyboard shortcuts for those smilies. You can find out the keyboard shortcuts for all the smilies by looking at the Smilie box ( ) in any text formatting window. For instance, : + ) = smile or : + cool + : = cool (no spaces. I'll add a separate FAQ on how to use Smilies later). You cannot use any other image links.

The same rules apply in Shout Box as they do in your posts. Watch the excessive language!

Shout Box (like most anything else) works best with the Firefox browser, but is usable (like most anything else, barely) with IE. tongue wink



NEW FEATURE WITH SOFTWARE VERSION 7.3:

If you start a message with /me it'll display it as an action you're performing (just like in IRC)

So typing: /me slaps Blibble around
Would display boldly as: *jgeoff slaps Blibble around

Geoff,

I know you're still getting the "bugs" fixed here on the new BB, but I'm curious..you mentioned the possibility of "live chat" one day. Is it something you are still considering?

The SB is ok, but doesn't go quick enough for me. While in the middle of posting and/or replying there's several more comments that have been posted.

It's coming, probably in a few weeks. I'll start a Chatroom thread when the time comes...

Cool! You know what's funny. I don't really understand the technicalities of how the live chat is different from the Chatroom (surprise surprise ), but it seems to go quickly and smoothly.

I don't know if this counts as a "Shout Box" question, or if it's a Firefox issue or what... but I'll ask it here anyway.

A lot of times (not always, but often enough), when I get on the BB, or when I click on a thread, or whatever, once it loads, the Shout Box will take up the bigger part of the page, and the actual posts will be in a little column on the right side. I have to click "Refresh" for it to get back to normal.

Does anyone else have this problem? Is it just a Mozilla thing? Or maybe even the other Firefox users don't experience this... is it just me? Is there anything that can be done about it?

Thanks!

Yeah... refresh the page.

(I've had it happen a few times to me. Dunno why it happens - it shouldn't, but refreshing the page always fixes it).

Sometimes that side of the page loads in before the main section -- let me know if the page actually stops loading altogether and still looks like that.

I've seen it look like that for a second, but never noticed it "finishing" like that. I use Firefox 2.0, and it's been fine for me. Or are you just impatient?

Well I am, yes. But even if I wait, it'll say "Done" at the bottom and everything, and doesn't change until I refresh the page. Guess I'll just keep doing that, then. No big deal. Thanks for the quick responses!

Trying to "shout" in the Shout Box and it won't appear. It keeps saying "sending", but then nothing shows up. I hope that 3 hours from now, it doesn't flood the box with all of my attempts.

I just got home now, but it's working for me... guess you didn't break it after all -- give it another shot.

Have you tried the usual stuff - restart the browser / clear browser cache / clear cookies / reboot? (not necessarily all those at once)

Tools > Internet Options > Temporary Internet Files (empty it)
Restart browser

Then try clearing "My Cookies" at bottom of this page, log back in

Then try rebooting I suppose.

But hurry, I gotta leave soon!

I HAD downloaded IE7 and then my laptop crashed, and I don't THINK I have it anymore. It was with the IT guy for 4 days. But the ShoutBox worked for me last night, so I don't know why it won't work tonight!!

If you don't have an aversion to it, I'd like to see you try Firefox... you may end up liking it better, too!

It's safer than anything Microsoft has ever put out.

Is there a way to make this a larger number? Sometimes there is a long discussion on there that I would love to scroll up just a tiny bit higher to see how it started, but I can't. I have no clue how you set up a BB so that's why I am asking, but can you possibly add a link that has some sort of an archive with the last 100 or so shout box posts?

I still don't get why people don't use the chatroom. If I chat, I'd much rather be in the chatroom. I guess I'm sensing more "cyber leg room" or something.

BTW, there's a new Shoutbox feature:

So typing: /me slaps Blibble around
