It's temporarily taken down since it was causing a bunch of errors on the server... but do you guys want it back? or is the forums good enough Blum 3

Having another feature is always good in my opinion. *cough*

I got rid of it since it puts extra load on the server and people start using it to get help and whatnot lol

I never used it, and can't see myself using it now. Specially if I want to lose the "just visiting" title.

I think neomallers can do without it, especially if its causing errors on the server

well it's not really errors. (except minor ones) But the shoutbox means, everytime every page is loaded, 20 posts are constantly being loaded from the server. We currently get roughly 5000 pageloads per day so that's about 100,000 queries per day, just from that little thing lol

Wow I can see how that can produce a lot of strain on the servers. Do you run off of servers at like where ever you're located or do you upload it all to servers that you've never seen that are run by the hosting companies?

It's uploaded to another hosting company (which is located in Seattle, Texas) - hence why I have to keep constant backups; just in case
