Shoutbox.....

I wish shoutbox remove once and all. Respect the people who has been posting some funny and interesting staff out there, but lately all i see some distracting images, texts, fighting, childish argument.

It looks like shoutbox lately hack and run by some group of same kids everyday. Do i really need to see all this rubbish i guess not, am i the only one distracted by, do not think so.

I was checking is there any setting to remove the shoutbox on my eyes can not see anything does any one know if there is anything to do this?

If you keep your mouse over the top right of the shoutbox, an X will appear, and you can close that whole window, I don't know if this helps, but.

Or you can close just the shoutbox by pressing the little x in the right corner, it's so small that you'll barely see it, just under the big X.

I wish there was a button located somewhere inside of Shoutbox which you can use to call in Moderator or Administrator to calm things down.

I also mentioned this idea in my reply:

You can not insult other members with that word, you can Report misbehaving member to Administrator or Moderator. That includes all forum sections, including Shoutbox.

I'd call it. "Long conversation between a small group of members box" instead of shoutbox. :lol:

I wish Status Updates were actually status updates as well. All the rubbish posted there pushes the real updates off the page. It's a shame. :(

I totally agree with Avmad and what makes it worst is the rubbish & childish stuff displayed there.

If there are issues with any content in the shoutbox the only way to get it resolved is to let a staff member know about it.

The best way to report the shoutbox content is to report the member themselves, with a quote of the content in question.

Having a rant in this topic will not achieve anything.

Moderators should have an option to prevent access to the Shoutbox for those members who doesn't know how to behave. Looks like some of the members uses Shoutbox only to insult other members, that's why Moderators should have this option, and Moderators should have more strict.

the shout box is it really necessary? Sometimes i wonder what really goes on there. I definitely agree with november rain. we are in a democratic world. maybe moderaters can run a poll and see those who are in favour and against.

If you change a bit the shoutbox settings, it can be done very useful and effective.
At the moment - well, better not comment.

But it's not bothering me, for me it's just completely useless.

. . . . . . . . . . . maybe moderaters can run a poll and see those who are in favour and against.

The Mods. favor the ShoutBox - it attracts new Registrants to the site (a poll wont change their minds - you may try for yourself.) ;)

IMHO, the ShoutBox is not intrinsically a bad thing - what really dictates whether it's good or bad is the quality and relevance of the shouts.

FWIW, at this very nSane ShoutBox - I've seen sex on the walls, blood on the flooring, porn stars shooting sperm at the fly on the ceiling, gay proclamations, lesbian inclinations and bachelors jerking away . . . . . . . . . . . . for glory.

I did that not long after I arrived here as I have been around the web for too many years to count (put it this way I bought the first 14,400 USR modem as my first Modem) I have seen so many sites dragged down by silly comments and silly child like bitch fights on them I am simply not interested in taking part.

If you need to say something private use a Pm or make a post if it isn't, after all supposedly we are adults.

If there is something in the SB which might be against the Guidelines, reporting it would be the right thing to do.

What i don't understand, a SB is a SB, which main purpose is short and fast interaction, if you need a chat to fulfill the need of countless interaction for several hours between a "club", why not using a messenger like ICQ or the internal Messenger functionality of the forums? A shoutbox is not a chat (not for me) and the question is what nsane thinks is the main purpose of it, is it a shoutbox or a chat?

I think it's not fair, if a handful of members actually abuse the SB, getting the whole SB disabled which also affects members or just guests that have nothing to do with wrongdoings of others. If at all, members that don't follow the rules simply should get the SB permissions removed, if required.

The SB doesn't need to be frontpaged, if you wanna use it, you could just click on the header bar to get redirected to it, so people aren't forced to read it.

Fortunately or unfortunately, the ShoutBox is here to stay. :dunno:

Apart from the tips shared at above posts, those who do not wish to be greeted by the ShoutBox first thing at login can use the following link as an alternative to the homepage - it even works great with every password manager that I've used (logs you straight into New Contents):--

ShoutBox is necessary because it's the quickest facility in nsane to get assisted, share feelings (good ones), to have constructive arguments etc. But some people uses it to post pornography and personal abuses which exploits the quality of SB in front of some concious people and that's acceptable. Blaming SB for this isn't acceptable.

I used to post links in some C-box to get my file leeched from some premium file hosting site. There was a rule - no porn links. If anyone breaks the rule, he gets banned for 3 hours. Do that again and get banned for a day. Oh you SONHB, you did that again - get banned for a week from posting. This was done by some virtual robot on execution of some specific commands from the admins/mods.

I don't know if we can have such facility in Nsane SB or not but that's a good piece of idea.

Or another thing that can be done is to prohibit the posting of 3rd party graphics (images/videos) and other links directly in shoutbox. It's enough to have a SB just for simple chat with nsane emotiocons. Sharing of 3rd party graphics and other link should be done by PM. This will help limit pornography.
