    hey ookie1
    I once again warn u
    you are fighting here a lot
    you can not discriminate anyone on any basis

    secondly I challenge this forum will go gr8 without the type of theme u describe
    The thing of the forum which I like the most is its simplicity
    everything and everyone here are so nice and simple and never over shout

    It wouldn't hurt... I was on one with a forum, and people just put random things there for fun.

    Oh yeah, if we want a "chat box" instead then xat have very good cboxes

    http://xat.com/web_gear?cb is the URL for making one. And you can make your own avatar too... (check my topic)

    it seems many of you would like the shoutbox.. i personally agree with ookie, but this is a community site even though i pay the bills its up to you guys really, so how about a vote? setup a poll Ll_Llama and lets hear it :D

    nothing like that on smf's site...

    well that makes sense but the point ookie was saying and which i agree with him is that if we did have one people wouldn't bother using the forum.. it would be like a chat room :) and that in the long run would make the forum less attractive for new members...

    i personally think shoutboxes defeat the whole idea of a forum
    when a visitor comes in and sees everyone posting in the shoutbox and not the forums, they might not want to join

    also that is the easiest place for someone to start a flame war
    and if someone visiting saw that i dont think they'd be too impressed at 2 people fighting on over a shoutbox

    of course its not my decision but i dont think it is necassary

    in a perfect world where everyone got along, then yeah.
    but if you think this is a perfect world, you need to wake up and smell the flowers

    I have abunch of site links that the search engine searches in. It also searches the web but I emphasized the Gimp based sites ;D
