Would you miss the shoutbox?

I am thinking about removing the shoutbox.
What's your opinion?
Keep it or delete it?

I already wrote in the shoutbox that it is not working very good, but I think we should either keep it or get a new one.
maybe this one: http://www.shoutbox.de/start/index_DE.shtml or you create one yourself :)

What about a real chatroom?
Any interest?

The chatroom would be an additional feature.
The forums would stay as they are with the exception of the shoutbox, which would disappear.

I think we (tafkak and me) already talked about adding a chatroom and I think it is useless because there aren't enough visitors. You wouldn't ever meet someone there.
I like the idea of a shoutbox, but not the one we have at the moment.

I think the shoutbox is fine, although I haven't seen any other types so if there was a better alternative then why not  :D

The last chatroom didn't really work  :(

Mr Admin Sir,

What I meant was  yes it did work from a technical point of view (not broken), but not very many people used it   :(

Of course I am aware, that the chat room hasn't been visited permanently by loads of people.
But I remember a few times when some of us TUTS had a really nice chat.
A new chat room wouldn't be much busier than the old one, but I like the idea of having a chat with some of you folks, again.

What do you think TJ, C5, PK, Fleagles, Uli, Hosenfan, Fred, Alan and all the other old-timers. hehehe...

Fortunately I don't remember such nonsense (might have to do with me never visiting a chatroom)...
The shoutbox didn't work here at first, now that it does it's nice just to say "hi" to someone who's online too. But I wouldn't really miss it too much.
Just around the corner and miles away...
