I'm sure quite a few of you know each other, but a lot of people don't.
I have always been a fan of shoutboxes on forums as a method of getting to know members better, increasing forum activity, and quickly answering small questions.
I know they keep me coming back to forums and for sure help me to get to know people better. I'm not sure how easy it is to implement with php or whatever but I would really appreciate it if you guys would look into it.
if anyone reading this doesn't know what a shoutbox is, it is just like an instant message or chat room for members to chat in.
