Hello community!
The shoutbox is causing a few minor but annoying problems.
As it isn't really used very much, we decided to disable it and see if the forum runs smoother - looks like it does.
If you request it we'll try to find a better alternative.
Cheers!

Ah, that's what happened. I was wondering where it went!

And as for alternatives, I dunno.
Perhaps someone could research an embeddable version of the Discord API and see if we could link the Fractal Chats in real-time?
It would likely slow down things and cause more problems, but ehh.  :-\

Anyone else?

It could also go onto a separate page, without embedding it on every single page.

or separate window that can be moved, opening window = join chat, close window = leave chat, could put the magic button in the user profile page to make sure that only registered users ever have access to the feature.
Resistance is fertile... you will be illuminated!

Or just we can move to real IRC or discord, without web client  :D
