    Hey Zelk some ideas that I thought of from other site's I've been to

    is to be able to click on someone's name and then click private chat, to make a new tab in the shoutbox directly to that person. OR have a command like( /w ) to whisper to them directly without others seeing so that you can link certain stuff or give people privacy if they wanna talk about something that best be unheard.

    Another would be to have a Notice / Hyper Link bar to navigate most wanted threads easier. @Zelkova

    These features are not built into this chatbox. Would you mind linking these sites you've been to?

    Those are some nice suggestions. The ability to PM people in the shoutbox would make it more of a chatroom than a shoutbox. I personally would prefer an all out chatbox with user list and everything, but it's not really NECESSARY as we can message each other privately through the website's conversation feature.

    @Zelkova The site is just Leafre.net you need to log-in to see it on main site page. Although I like the size and look of our Shoutbox at TRIA better than Leafre.

    Leafre is built with VB. I am using Xenforo. They're completely different forum programs and they have different plugins.

    I'm mostly happy with how everything is running so far. I don't disagree that it would be nice to be able to whisper or PM someone from the shoutbox.
    Right now we are running Taigachat. If you find something equal to or better in quality let me know.

    Pros of vBulletin: TONS AND TONS of mods/plugins
    Cons of vBulletin: Going through a slow downfall, not as clean cut as Xenforo

    Anyways, it looks like Taigachat can put stickies/MOTD. Does it allow links?

    You can post links of course. I've disabled image embeds due to @its2late4u >>
    You can set a MOTD but I don't have one right now.
