I've had some time to test and observe the current shoutbox.

The use of pictures has gone down to a "normal" level (whatever normal means).

Both shoutboxes have their pros and cons. Despite the (for me) negative points above I'd stick with the current SB for now.

And just don't change settings because I've complained about something, there have to be more people complaining than just me before something should be changed Wink

Well, as everyone has probably noticed - New shoutbox, again!

I got to say, I think this one is a keeper.  It seems to be the only one so far that has all of the features of our old original shoutbox - All our smilies can be loaded, and they appear in a single window without pop ups, your ERR site login integrates into the shoutbox so you don't need to have two accounts, it updates in real-time, it shows who's typing, and you can PM the admins if you need to talk to us privately.  I also think the flag that shows the country the person is in is pretty cool, too.

What do you guys think so far?

It is indeed much closer to the original shoutbox. Very glad to not have the excessive random pics, gifs, illustrations, etc. posted from anywhere and everywhere. That would have been a problem eventually, I think.  Grin

I'm raging here!

I would like to know why am I banned from the Shoutbox? At the moment I cannot post anything on the Shoutbox!
This didn't happen on the other ones!
If it is because of me using a vpn to listen to the stream there's no other way. I've tried everything and using a VPN is the only way.
Since I use a free one there's no chance my country (IP) is always the same.

I hope someone sees this btw...

@Gontrop, I thought you had been posting in the new Shoutbox yesterday?  Shocked

This happened because Gontrop was using a free VPN service.  The endpoint he was using had an IP address that had been identified as the source of hacking behavior, so he got locked out because of it.  I got hte problem fixed shortly after he messaged me though, so he's OK now.

I had a friend of mine with a Macintosh try and they said they could see the shoutbox, so I'm not sure what to tell you.  It even works on my Android phone.

Not sure if anyone else is having any issue, but a few times this week the SB stopped updating for me. I could still post shouts, but I couldn't see them or other people's shouts until I refreshed the SB. But since there doesn't seem to be a way to refresh just the SB, I had to refresh the whole page... a bit annoying when I'm using the player at the top.  Undecided I also kind of miss when we had some kind of archive, and could delete/edit shouts.

I haven't ever had the SB stop  updating.  We also actually do have an archive, all you need to do is keep scrolling back, it'll go back for three months!  Of course, that's a lot of scrolling, and we haven't had it for three months yet, but, it'll work!
