Is it just me or are people posting less in General Chat since the introduction of the shout box?

Seems to me there is less playful chat here than there was.

Probably, but you get a better class of chat here. It's mostly complete drivel in the shoutbox.

not actually correct m8y

since we upgraded the server and i added the shout box back just over one month ago posts rates was:

on average 400 - 600 posts a day (which is alot!!!)

now they are:

on avarage 700 to around 1000 a day


for example here is a cut and pasted amount of posts today ;)

New Posts Today975

and its about 7.30ish m8y


maybe the shoutbox has decreased amount of posts but its very active and gives members form of cummunication as many are not great posters ... me im not a great shoutboxer so i like to post... in my opinion you as members make sections great so start posting more here and you will get more replys ;)

I dont use the shoutbox an awfull lot but I do from time to time and its nice to have a one on one with the members
a friendly reminder from time to time that its for general chit chat and not for questions but all in all it runs ok

I'll maybe stop and use shoutbox for directions - but so far all I've commented on was the weather:grayyawn:
(Scroller function's a bit tricky?)
