suggesting a shoutbox style chat

I'm a member of another unrelated forum and I find that more often than not there is someone always around chatting in the shoutbox simply because its convenient and right there on the forum main page. I've jumped in to the fsb chat a few times and it seems that its empty most of the time. just a thought.

As a reference, I linked the shoutbox that my other group site uses.

I've seen a few of these around other sites. not sure if VB has a plug-in for one or not.
not a bad idea but only our AutoGuide techs can say for sure if it's an option or what kind of hassle it would be on a forum like ours.

dragon-byte makes vbulletin plug-ins. the question is ... is this compatible. Is this something a lot of people would want?

All the other forums I am on have a chat box on the main page and I find it fun sometimes to hop in and have small talk with other members, therefore I say yes it would be a good idea

better find out if it's compatible first. don't want to get everyone excited and then tell them we're SOL.

snowmobile forum I used to frequent had one. it's a nice novelty and I probably used it more than I've used the official chat here.
IF we did get it... I'd say we should probably let the chat room go but I honestly have no clue how much use that chat gets around here.

thanks for the feedback Lee!

There is a 3.8 version and a different plugin as well created by cyb that we can use and do on a lot of our sites.
