    I agree with that.

    I oreferred the live chat on the top of the page, as you could keep an eye on it, whilst reading other threads on the forum.

    Could we not make a poll for it?

    or the bottom bar

    I would suggest the prior shoutbox evo, but on the forum front page only. That way it doesn't interfere with page loading times but you still get to keep an eye on the ball when you return back to the index.

    I second this idea.

    EDIT: BTW, what is the ADDICTBUTTON for? I reluctantly pressed it and....... nothing happened.

    ^^^ That is exactly what we've settled for on our house music forum; after a lot of fannying about with different chatware and configs. Runs like a dream now. ^^^

    I prefer the new chatboxes to the old one.. the old one messed with page loading as p1tbull said and was generally a nuisance because you had to scroll past it at every pageload. This one is unobtrusive and sleek.

    I have to play with it in the background for a while. There are some serious issues with the code that I have to work through.
