Title: Shoutbox
Post by: dsanchez on January 03, 2010, 23:44:11
I just disable the shoutbox due some technical problems we're experiencing with the application allowing to embed automatically the videos. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Cheers

David.

the shoutbox was originally launched to be in use only during special occasions (like concerts) and even then it never really worked well.
there are always chat programs like YIM or messenger available for any personal messaging. ;)

Strange I didn't know this, I tought it was something extra and new on curefans.com to communicate with others ?

and even then it never really worked well.

I never felt that it wasn't working ? It was working really fine to me?

I don't need a private chat, the shoutbox was just GREAT the way it was  :smth023
And I think everyone knows good enough that everything you write there was in public?
And now I still miss it and want it back  ;)

I'm not the only one I guess?

The shoutbox idea came from the time we had a Cure radio special (I contacted a british radio so that Curefans.com can "sponsor" the show) and we had many curefans.com members chatting throught the british radio chat.

The shoutbox was installed and used for a handful of people for a period of time. Some people didn't like to read other's people "private" conversations and thus the shoutbox was disabled until we can find a way to make it less "uncomfortable" (for example, a link that open a small window with the shoutbox couldn't bother anyone). I don't know when we will enable this again.

Thanks for your clear answer. I liked the shoutbox from the beginning and I have nice memories about it, nobody was ever rude over there to somebody else, there where nice conversations too ... And I start to like curefans.com more from that point, it had for me something social, and it's just that what I miss the most :(
It looks so dead, I like it more on my mobile phone right now :(
And sometimes it was nice to shout something out  :-D
