Whats your thoughts on having a shoutbox for your forum? Having a shoutbox is not always a bad thing, but there are downsides, members are most likely to just chat most of the time instead of posting. And having a shoutbox on all forums is not a great idea either depending on your forum's niche. If you have a gaming forum, or general discussion forum then I would say its okay to have a shoutbox. But if you run a webmaster/business forum I would say its best not to have a shoutbox as its not the professional thing to do. Having one for your members might be fun and give them a more social experience on your forum but overall I would say it doesn't help your forum.. What are your thoughts?
