There's no way I'd be in favor of putting something like that on our front page. Thanks for the suggestion though.

As shoptroll mentioned, if someone really wants to talk real-time, just drop by one of our irc channels #beyondunreal or #fragbu.

In case you didn't notice, "important" holidays and birthdays always get a thread in the OT forum. And for greeting mates, use PMs.

Imagine how chaotic it would be with the number of active members..

It would only get abused.

This idea good for small LAN forum, but not for international site.

Shoutboxes are most likely abused from what I've seen. It's no good really....
