JMO here. I don't know what a "shoutbox" is; never saw one or used one. I have seen chat rooms and I personally think it would have a negative effect on the forum.

As far as folks coming in, posting their times when they come on and saying howdy...I'm not sure what purpose that would serve. I monitor the site multiple times daily. I pretty much know who comes on about what and when. I know many can't do that. My thoughts are that with PMs and the real time posting of comments I'm not sure what a "shoutbox" accomplishes. Maybe the OP can enlighten me, or others, as to the function. Personally, I don't want anything, anything that makes the forum begin to look like a facebook site...no way. Nor do I think we want partitioned areas where folks can go to say what they want etc. without being monitored.

Anyway, I like the way the site operates and the limits it places on members. If there are enhancements that make it more enjoyable for all I'm for that but I absolutely would not want some sort of facebook type commentary running that was not applicable to the many topics the site already has. JMO-YMPWV (your mileage probably will vary!!)

I also am in the group that has never been around anything named "shoutbox." I do however peruse many sites that have a "thanks" box where you check it if you have read the post and those reading said post can see who has read it. I believe the "thanks" box is what most of the comments/posts have been about in the past. It would be one of those items that if you don't care for it, don't use it. I don't believe it would raise the annual price of belonging to this group.....

Yes, and the same would go for the "shoutbox" as well. Don't like it, don't use it.
It doesn't in any way "monitor" you or mimic Facebook in any sense, just to clarify that.


Oh ya, and if the annual price of belonging here gets any worse, I am going to write my congressman...or whoever

If it’s a live “chat room” I wouldn’t want it here. IMO this forum isn’t the place for it. There are plenty of other places on line for that. The “like” May be a good thing. We use it on the Ford truck forum I am a member of.
