Shout box?, that's a brilliant idea.

I vote for shout box implementation because it's good for additional non-subject related discussion or a public message of sorts. It will also spring little life to the forum and amuse us when the spambots learn how to use it. While on the downside it may cause another gateway to gang on individual drama, that's my only concern.

Seriously Alex, what?

Also, what I strongly disagree with a portal for the front page of the forum which is common with IPB and VB boards, it's ugly and I would rather see the forum listings as soon as I enter this part of the website.

I prefer having forum and portal soft separated, as well, but with certain portals that can be easily arranged. That said I see no reason to change the existing forum software and there already is a functional web page.

A shoutbox in a forum is often based on 1 hidden topic, in which people post, without them knowing it.

You can make individual categories not increase postcount though right?

Shoutbox's can deter members from posting if they have a way of getting instant replies up top. I have 2 on my forums though and they work just fine ;)
