Would just be used by spammers...

yeah but the same could apply to the forum as well. at least info on the shout wouldn't need stickying or bumping ever!

Ducky set one up that's still here it just doesn't get used much. :thumbsup:

theres a version of the shoutbox that can be downloaded as an addon for vbulletin forums direct from vbulletin, if the admin wishes to add it. Its updated it realtimer [no refresh] and its on trhe forum home page.

It'd make it look a tad tacky I reckon ;-)
#6
Me too lol. Unless it was nicely implemented to mathc the site's design...

Maybe we do need a "news" or "announcements" page like the QuidCo blog.

simple questions can be answered quickly

and instantly

That was the angle i was thinking of.

Not really for general q & a
The forums fine for people to ask questions etc already, plus this would clog the shout up.
This would be more suited to communicate key points in a concise fashion and in a place where everyone can see/find them.

Point taken on the tacky thing but there is a Delete button on there if u login as an admin.... So not more of a potential spam problem that any other part of the site in that respect really.

As well as the announcements we could have other stuff like a deal of the week.

I'm liking the idea of a HotUKDeals blog.

I don't think we'd do a shoutbox - I am very hesitant to add on vB mods/extras as our server load is quite touchy and things that may run ok on a smaller forum may create issues here. That aside I"m not sure how useful it would be to be honest.

As for a blog we have a forum so unless you want to read what the mods ate for dinner I don't think we need a blog either!
