ShoutBox, I think is just a chat system, without actually having to go to a topic on the board to be able to talk to someone. The ShoutBox is at the bottom of the page, or at least it is for me. Go on the "Enter your reply here..." after you have done that, just click or tap "Send" right under it.
A shout box is a good way to let people know to read specific posts . not really a good conversation place. Depending on the sett is JD has put on it messages or shouts if you want, disappear after a certain amount of posts . if I remember rightly you can set it for a post limit or a time limit. Shout boxes can generally end up a whole mess of nothingness though especially when a community gets large. Can you imagine over 100 people posting at one time. It can get hectic and be brutal to keep under control. You dont get the same moderation and options with a shout box as you do with threads and topics on the actual forum. In my opinion from far too much bloody experience with those things are GET RID OFF IT lol. If the forum was used for media is live streaming, music etc shout boxes are useful to add announcements otherwise they are pointless . and with the idiots that use the internet these days the shout box will fill up instantly .not that I'm saying people here are idiots. But you know they WILL appear eventually

I kinda liked the shout box option. I figured with just the few of us on here it wouldn't be a headache, but yeah, if this place ever gets hopping, it could get outta control.
I use them kinda like a Chat Thread. Got something quick to say or comment on, but it doesn't really need a new thread topic, just say it in the chat box. Maybe someone will respond, maybe not. I'm cool either with or without it, but I think with just the handful of us starting out, it was a neat chat option...

LMAO It had the intended effect, I wanted Lisertan to lock the thread I just couldn't take it anymore. If I get banned so be it, I don't want to be a part of that forum anymore with dickweeds like that.

Agreed canadafarms . There seems to be an uprising in dickweeds over there, don't understand why. In the middle of FS15's life (when I first joined there, which was December 9, 2015), it was never like what it is now, not at all, not even close.
Glad cr41g started a HELPFUL feedback thread for SOMS2's map. Let's hope that yours doesn't get out of hand.
