Do you want it to stay? Please vote throughout the day..

for those of you who arent too fond of it, a simple click of the arrow button on the top right of the box will hide it for good even if u log out

i was all for a chat room but this shout box is dumb. i usually hang out on the "new posts" and then refresh when i read whats new. you cant see the shoutbox on anything other then the home page.

i think the shout box will take away posts.

is there anything available that could be a pop-up or something so i can still navigate the forum?

not diggin the shoutbox, im minimizing it.

i dont see a point for it.

it moves so fast that conversations get confusing very easily, unless its 2 people talking.

i agree it can get confusing with so many people talking. but on the flipside at midnight tonight it probably will be nice because their are like 4 people on here late.

decreasing posting isnt going to matter.. hes not gaining or losing money

Hes not making any money from this site period. Decreased posting = less activity, mook wants the site to be active and grow.

Weather doesn't dictate anything during the weekdays.

During the week, most people work during the day, and dont go out at night because they work the next morning. Most people dont post on the weekend, because they do other things, such as go outside.

I had 6 years of statistics to analyze with my own forum that had 10x the member base this one does. I don't make 'assumptions', my information is backed by my research over the years.

Much has to do with the content on the board. There should be much better content in the warmer months because everyone is active. Content, meaning events, meets, whatever the case may be that generates communication between individuals. I could go on for a long time about it, but weather only really dictates weekends significantly, not the weekdays.
