i cant see the shout box anymore, any one know what's going on?
I don't see it either
Cut out last night for me, not sure why but it seems to be gone for the other leagues on here too.
I don't have any information yet on why chat box was removed for all leagues but given that it was removed for all leagues either something went wrong or it was an administrative decision. This site relies on page views and ad revenue to cover expenses so perhaps they saw a big enough downturn to justify pulling the plug BUT I'm merely speculating.
In the meantime ill try to make this thread "live" so it updates realtime as people post. I'll also direct you guys to the daddyleague chat which is
This Thread Should Now Be Live
Sucks if it was an administrative decision, while I know it has us sitting on the homepage a lot, if it's not there at all I think traffic to the site itself will slow a lot.
I Don't Agree With The Decision Either But It's Not My Decision To Make
Yeah I definitely hope it just came down for a little bit
Chat Brought Us Together In Many Ways - Allowed Us To Talk More As Friends And Not Just League MaTes. It's Been Huge For Us But We'll See.
Could we use daddyleagues chat?
some of us are in that chat freakskull
just talked to Shaun and the issue stems from the bad gateway errors you may or may not have seen. once that is resolved, if it can be resolved, our chat will be back
Well that's potentially good news
well i just talked with Shaun some more...... maybe i misinterpreted him the first time. He said posts are way down.since October and chatbox won't be coming back....
ideas? i think groupme is perhaps overkill but..... Skype maybe? we need another chat medium
thats disappointing. this place will become more about scheduling now. i thought we got way more active once it came around.
Nothing we can do so, Skype could be a good idea. i dont know what group me even is to be honest
group me is an app that is basically a chat room. I use it for my other league. It's been pretty good for us. Been using it since Madden 13.
Yeah I think traffic may go down more without chat box now. I actually came here alot just to talk to you guys. Now it will be more of a rarity to visit to check on scheduling and what not.
GroupMe is basically just an app to have group messages on. It's just like when you have a group message with your friends via text. You can either text or send the messages in the app.
Would Skype be possible on a phone? I'm on my phone 90% of the time I'm in shoutbox.
I don't think GroupMe is overkill, if you use the app you can turn notifications off so you'll just see the messages when you pull the app up.
I think groupme is 10x better than skype
There is a website/app called slack that is okay
The chat was causing timeout issues on the site...AND there has been a DRAMATIC downturn in overall site activity since I allowed individual league chat boxes. Honestly at this point, TSO is paying more money to run those chat boxes and getting less money in return for them. I'm not going to fight GroupMe anymore, use it if you want.
Per your request, I added a copy of the MAIN chatbox to your league forum. It's available to everyone just like your league chat was. It won't hurt anyone to interact with people OTHER than their league mates.
How about setting up a Chatango? That's my personal favourite chatbox system.
I think the main chat box works fine, do we really need an alternative?
This discussion was prompted before its return - I agree I think we're fine, at least for now.
