YC Shout Box
A few other forums I'm on have whats known as a shout box on the home page. Its basically a way for members to IM with each other on the home page. Its a really cool way to create better bonds between members and quickly post up useful info.
I think it would be an awesome addition to the forum! Same rules apply to the shout box as the regular forum (no advertising, swearing, etc etc), and its best to keep it generic chat and keep questions in the forum to keep it active and let other view and add to the topic.
YC Staff and members...whats your thoughts on this?
