What is being worked on?
« on: July 17, 2006, 07:52:13 AM »
We are always trying to make the shoutbox service better. The following is on our todo list:

- Better USBC (UBBC) system

- Colour picker for shoutbox admins to make changing skins easier

- Option for webmasters to move the form on the shoutbox (name, url, message) to the bottom or left/right.

- Try to make it easier for people to find out if someone is an imposter (deliberately using someone elses name). We don't want a system where people have to login before using the shoutbox, because that would mean that shouting isnt quick anymore.

- Create a timezone-offset option for webmasters. So they can have the shoutbox and messages in their own timezone.

If you like to see more features... let us know below :)

Some more options that we are thinking about:

- Option to remove the time and users online from the top of the shoutbox

- Option to remove the "Website" input form field from the shoutbox. For webmasters who do not want that field.

Good news. Now I have a script in the footer but this is a more elegant way to handle this.

I know :) Thats how i got the idea to do that... i didnt even know it was possible to do with javascript until i saw how you did it. The more options a webmaster has to customize his/her shoutbox, the better  :thumbs:

Especially having the option to remove the website formfield is a good idea to prevent url spammers.   :wink:

I suspect i will be able to have this, as well as a few other things, online by the end of the week.

It's good to see that this shoutbox is getting better and better.
And it's already very good if not the best!

I like all the features very much!

Here is one little feature I would like to be added:
I would like it a lot if i could make the "Cell 1 Font" Bold

 :wink:

[edit] Well, i pretty much got what i want by just increasing the "Font Size". So never mind my little request [/edit] ;)

If there is a way to change or modify the Time Zone I'd greatly appreciate it. I really would like to keep both options of time and users online. I'd just like some means to change it to Eastern Time US. :)

Yep, we're working on that. It's something we would want to see in the application as well.
