The chat box will no longer reside on the homepage. It will now only exist on the Live Feed page. In an effort to speed up the site, we have learned the chat box is quite the resource hog and since many of you leave the site sitting on the homepage, this can be taxing on the site...

So, for the time being, the chat box can be found on this page:

Thank you and god bless.

we've got something else going on behind the scenes (well, it should be by morning) that in theory, will help a lot as well.

Quick suggestion - while it is not on the main page, could you put a link up there so it is easily seen/can be found?

Not a bad thought. I might just add a link to the navbar.

I know I'm "new" here in the sense I am re-finding this website. But I had to search to find the new link to the chat box. If there is a link stating "chat box" on the front page my lazy ass would love it :)

Get rid of the chat box or the threads daily where you can post a shit ton. Thats my opinion.

Again, while I may be new...I use the chat box almost every time I am on here. If there are other members on, it is a great way to BS.

Eh, I use it sparingly. Overall I'm not a fan of the shoutbox, seems to be drawing attention away from the rest of the forum. But maybe that's just overnight :dunno:

I haven't really noticed a drop in other threads due to the sb.
