  • the shout box

    The shout box is not everyones cup of tea. On the whole it gets very busy and can put new members off..........But thats not what Talk Anglings about we are a forum not a chat room please post your questions or what ever in the forum thats where you will get your answers.

    absolutely no one forces you to enter the shout box .But please feel free to join in and don't get a complex if you think you are ignored cus the txt goes so quickly not everyone sees it

    Dead right Pete,but when a new member enters,to be ignored(for whatever reason)is one thing but to be replied to with derogatory comments is hardly the way to welcome new members or promote the site,the shout box is there for everyone to see(including guests)i think like all posts on here a little thought as to the content might not go amiss.i personaly find a lot of it amusing,but as ive said its open for anyone to read.

      It has been always been the first thing people see and for this reason as well as IMO reducing posts on the forum hopefully going to be replaced with the flash chat and not be on the forum page.... hope fully in the not to distant future I have probably been the biggest user of it and will miss it..but hard content is what i want to see where other users can look back and read advice givern.I was there yesterday when one new member came on and i did say hello but it is so hard to tell if people have your sense of humour but i sure am to blame as much as any one

        Hurricane is right a small minority of shoutbox users do tend to shoot from the hip, and some replys are at least not very clever, the problem is what one sees as funny another will see it as an insult, additionally humor is difficult to portray via a keyboard even the use of smillies often dont help, whilst there may be one or two minor gliches with the Flash Chat I think its time that it was the sites chatroom

                      Maver, Shoutbox had a sudden influx of jokers who were causing all sorts of problems, several were banned within minutes for swearing and aggresive posting, t duck unfortunately enrolled in and around that time, he was asked some questions to ascertain that he was not another one of those jokers before being validated, sadly some of the jokers appeared to be existing members just out to create a problem.
                      However that problem seems to have dissapeared following a few warnings, the actions were necessary following several PM complaints from existing members.
