    We have a Shoutbox function that I can activate, depending on your preferences.  This instant chat function can be at the top of the main page, be moved to the bottom, or not be activated at all.  You won't be able to see it when you're browsing the site, just on the main page.

    Would you like to have instant chat available here at GGG, or do you prefer the more permanent option that is our threads?  I don't mean that I'd be removing any threads, of course, I'm just mentioning that anything posted in chat will be gone eventually.

    So what do you think, members?

    I'm a simple soul, Genki, and I'm okay without a shout box. Smile 
    I know other sites have them... initially I used to feel confused and sometimes a bit left out when others were openly chatting and sharing a (public) private joke or two. It usually ends up being the same few people who use them as well. Now I don't mind and just ignore them. So I don't care either way though I probably wouldn't use a shout box myself.

    I feel the same way, but I wanted to give the option.

    I HAVE activated the chat room, which is available by clicking on the link at the bottom of the main page.  It will be useful if someone needs a quick tutorial or walkthrough.

    Since I don't know what a "shoutbox" is, chances are, I would never use it.

    But that's just me. Big smile

    I'm good w/o a shoutbox, they move too fast for me, and seem to be frequented by only a few the couple of times I've seen them.

    Well I'm glad to see that we're pretty much agreed about it Sunny

    It is something that I can activate for special occasions, such as the countdown to something highly anticipated or a group tutorial type of thing, so keep that in mind~ Smile
