Title: Shoutbox visibility to guests
Post by: Addie on January 26, 2015, 06:16:50 PM
We're making the Shoutbox visible to guests for a while. Ray suspects that visitors are seeing the often-empty Chat room and assuming the site is inactive when people are really playing in the Shoutbox. We'll leave it this way for a week or three maybe and see how it does. Feel free to tell us how you feel about this.

If you want some shield from the average unregistered visitor's prying eyes then you will want to use the Chat Room.

I have no dogs in this particular hunt as I rarely use the Shoutbox or the Chat Room, but it makes sense. Hopefully some folks will be emboldened to set up their own homestead on the RC farm once they see what a delightful bunch we are.

Just a reminder: if you want to converse 'privately' you can do it in the Chat Room.

Hey everyone, I'm new here  :wave: a low level of site activity has been a real bugbear for me on sites similar to this one so I think publicising the shoutbox is a great idea!  Seeing people getting involved certainly encouraged me to register with the site...

Looks like your evil plan is working. How soon before you and Pinky try to take over the world?
