Shouldn't have but I can't get it open either. Let me consult with our glorious leader.

It's been down for a couple of weeks, as far as I've been able to tell.

It could conceivably have fallen down the cracks between Narry's fall and Xisor's ascent, if this is renewal time. I don't know how these things work.

The entire shoutmix.com website appears to be down, and with it the Shoutbox. I'm not sure what can be done about that.

(I've been a bit behind in handling the transfer stuff, but this isn't that; I paid for a year of the Shoutbox back in April, so it should be taking care of itself.)

Yep, still no word on this but the shoutmix website remains out of action. Potentially they have gone bust?

no problem Rob. Given that it is a popular and useful feature, if it doesn't return soon we will look for a replacement.

Right...

Shoutmix packed it in on the 31st May...

Please use https://chatwing.com/Squiggle temporarily if you wish to chat. I will try and get the forum updated so that it sends you there instead :)

Sucks that narry can pay for a year of service and only get a month. I wonder if there's a way to get that money back - although it might be such a small amount it's not worth it.

I think reclaiming the money might be tough, given that I only could find out that shoutmix was no more via an angry tweet conversation

That's just low. They took the money and never sent a notification that they were quitting business.
