Is the chat box staying this time? I remember a while back that we previously had a chatbox but it got taken away due to some people abusing it. Or is it simply going through a trial period?
Girls are what make the world go round, didn't you know that already?
All smods will be mods on the chatbox as well.
but like I wrote before most of the issues stayed with me as well (the silver quick reply box is...well....silver and I can't read any text, oh and please please can I haz forum overview back? )
like the chat box and the autosave option when writing posts is really nice....
love the activity stream, I think it'll make it easier for people to get active but I hate that half of the text is over the users signature.....
http://www.completevb.com/demovb4/support/ but it's not a free one, that seems to be updated to version 4.2.0 of vBulletin.
Wow, I was a little confused there for a second. It's definitely easier to find new and active threads, but I had to change skins in order to find out where I was. xD
As for the Chatbox, I think this should to be said especially coming from me. What happened to the chatbox three years ago, I generally don't like to speak of because most of the community knows that I played a part in getting the chatbox removed along with other members. Since that is in the past, I hope people will respect that I will not comment on the gritty details.
This being said, most of the 'old users' who've caused trouble in the past I've kept in touch with. We've grown up a bit in the past years (as we were all around the same ages), some of us have gotten married, some of us have had children. I can speak for most of the old users when I say, that we are not interested starting any trouble, whatsoever. Nor are we interested in any drama for that matter on Animea. We too, would love to see a chatbox come back and be successful in bringing people to the forums.
I've seen a lot of the current members being really positive about the forum, leaving great comments and posts. These people should be able to have a service that allows them to chat with each other, IF the staff thinks it's fit for the Animea. I think the fact that the mods will be on chat is a great call, and it will also allow the users to get to know and appreciate the mods as well. I know most of you guys if not from years ago, presently... and I think it would be cool to be able to see you on chat.
If chat is not your thing, you don't have to necessarily take part in it. I've seen some comments on how 'it will be too much to scroll' with, but last time there was a chatbox, they had the quick-chat method, and it was a very small box at the top of the forum... ideal for no scrolling, and no lagging.
I personally don't know if I'll be a regular on the chatbox if it comes back, but I do know... that the good times, the humorous chats, the knowledgeable conversations, and the friendships that came out of there were well worth having the chatbox on there.
If it's decided that there's not to be a chat on AA, that's fine. Like many members mentioned, the spam area is booming, and people are getting along just fine the way the forum is now. :D I think it's a plus either way....

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' "
