Shoutbox Privileges?

19 posts in this topic

So I joined the site a few weeks ago - but noticed today when going to the shoutbox that I couldn't speak. There wasn't a box to type anything in for me, or a send button for messages. Is the shoutbox reserved for certain members only? Or do you get authorized to use it on case by case basis? Thanks for clarifying.

Aslain mentioned the other day that you have to have made at least 5 forum posts, in order to be able to use the sandbox, iirc.

Well, I think the idea behind it is that ppl don't abuse the shoutbox and spam useless crap, unless they have applied themselves some in the forum activities and are genuinely interested in communicating with others.

 

It's just a guess though and I think it's not too bad of an idea.

Ppl who just come here and want to read things - and not post much - usually don't have a reason to use the shoutbox either, I would think.

Others can warm themselves up in the forums, so to speak, and then get a little bit more involved and use the shoutbox, if they please.

Hehe.

 

It's not too hard to get 5 comments out of your system anyway and if one cared enough, they can even be good/helpful/funny ones.

 

There are enough topics anyway and I bet - on a day like today - there would be hundreds of ppl just asking "when is it ready?" or "why does that not work?" all day long in the shoutbox, if there wasn't this restriction.

 

Kinda encourages ppl to actually visit some threads and maybe read. =P

Yup, I changed it to 3 posts, for educational purposes :)

 

To prevent new users to posts their issues on shoutbox right after registering on the forum, at least to make it harder ;)

Still giving them some time to think and to post a thread instead to spam the shoutbox :)

It would be three. Three posts, infinite potential. Whether you use it for good or trolling is up to you.  :P
