    Should we keep or remove the shoutbox that's in the lounge?

    Pros:
    It's cool and people seem to like it
    Cons:
    It might be the reason the forum has been so slow lately, or maybe it's just because of all the guests.

    Lose it, it's been gheying up my forum loading time since it was put on and only saves a small number of replies so is basically useless.

    If theres any possibility of the forum being affected then dump it for now.
    Hadnt connected the two but noticed timeouts since its been up...

    It saves all shouts back to the beginning when rossco set it up:

    I haven't seen any slowdown that relates to the shoutbox.

    I do see that the board has a very annoying stall at intermittent or random times but it's been like that since before the shoutbox.

    I voted no even though I don't like it and have it closed.

    It doesn't hurt anything and probably cuts down on the spam.

    So you voted to have it removed?

    He meant on the Shoutbox itself, he didn't realise that we had an archive of what was said in there. Though it seems a little fiddly to check to see what people were chatting about last night.

    Remove it, it sucks at the moment.

    Whoopsie.... I read the question wrong. I though it asked if it should be removed, so I voted 'No', not to remove it.

    Get rid of it.

    Shoutboxes are gay.
