"May I Suggest?"

Postby Kelsey » 05 Mar 09, 5:02 pm

Hello all, yet again. I know I'm a new member to this site, but might I make a suggestion?

I've looked over this whole forum and found it quite amusing. But, I noticed one small detail. Of all the other forum sites I've seen, this would be the first to NOT have what's called a Chatbox.
Basically, a 'Chatbox' is like a space box at the top of the page made for chatting without the wait for pages to load, waiting a while for replies, etc. Instead, this offers you to communicate to others on a forum in a different way.

The Chatbox is very useful to most sites, but may lead an intake to a lot of Spam.
However, spam is highly expected for new updates. Seeing as the Administrator used a PHPBB program, such as mine, it can be updated, very quickly and easily.

Sorry, it's just a suggestion!

We considered a chat box a while ago but the consensus of opinion was that it wasn't really necessary and might discourage people from posting in the threads.

You will find there are several threads that are continuously active and tend to act as chat/shout boxes, and you will also notice that it is very rare for us to stay on topic. :mrgreen:

As a matter of fact, there has been a lack of posting and such from the forums I'm from.
Though, I suppose you're right. Thank you for answering.

Just a suggestion. Some of us have set up skype for chatting while we cruse the net .

Major Benefit: the separate window is not site dependant

When all is said and done. I [s]like[/s] love BOF just the way it is.. We don't need any chatbox.. I find that people tend to spend their time on there instead of in the forum posting...

:lmao: :lmao: :lmao: funny comebacks!

Personally I prefer things how they are, with so many people from wide time zones it's near impossible to include everyone, as a result a few might feel "out of the loop" if they see a comment they don't understand. I have had that before on different forum where people took part in instant conversation thing, unknowingly they put in a comment or two around the forum, those who had been in conversation understood the meaning and posted the appropriate emoticon or retorts, when someone like me did not have the conversation at all felt put out. It wasn't just me, other members felt that too. I would hate for people on this fab site, at any time, to feel as if they were pushed out of the close knitted circle because they missed a chat or two thus can't follow up on comments around the forums.

If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

There's nothing remotely interesting or cool about me.
How cool and interesting was that?!

:hug: Welcome to bit of fun and you don't have to appologize for making suggestions ;)

If we had a chat box then I'd have to go out and buy a new keyboard. My current keyboard is defective and prevents me from correctly typing letters in rapid succession, that assembled properly, form words.

:hug: Thanks for the warm welcome. C:
Aye.
A bit late on replying, Sorry guys, but I've come to know that the Chatbox, in my own opinion, a forum wrecker.
I like this forum just the way it is, and became a favorited of mine. C:
The Chatbox DID leave people away from the forum, itself.

Most of us seem to have the attention span of a goldfish and can't stay on topic for more than a couple of posts, so a chatbox would be superfluous. :lmao:

And besides, we have a chatterbox anyway, so a chat box is definitely superfluous.

I was behind them for quite a ways as we were all walking in the same direction. I stopped to speak with someone and so never saw them from the front.

Imagine the beach as a catwalk and the way models move on a catwalk and you'll get an idea of why they were so noticeable
