Temporary free chatbox thrown together in a hurry. DOES NOT AUTO-REFRESH, YOU'LL HAVE TO CLICK 'REFRESH' YOURSELF!

But, you know. Free. And here.

It struck me a mere moment ago: in the links, shouldn't/couldn't we rename and refer to the shoutbox as something more...characterful? I propose: The Astropathic Choir. No?

That way we can refer to 'shoutbox fail' as a peril of the warp.

the astropathic choir is a lighthouse.

I propose something more along the lines of a Spirit Matrix.

Strictly that's the astronomican's own astropathic choir. The little ones are light-houses and relays.

That said, I do also like the Spirit Matrix. Another option is the Noosphere. And to include the other races: the Waaagh!, the Waystation Network, the Shadow in the Warp and, just maybe, The Dolmen Gate.

Alternatively, if the button were labelled "Send a runner!"...

Quite an overlooked possibility here. If we settle on a name, I'll certainly make the changes.

Start up a new thread for this, though, it's not a failure (except maybe a failure to impress).

You could look back a couple of messages and use the link to the free, non-autorefreshing option...

any words on how I can look back at messages? I'm getting "shoutbox expired" and I presume the link I am following just jumps straight to the auto refresh version. Or failing that the link being put about here until we wait for our masters to put it in the appropriate places.

At the moment: yes, we know about the Shoutbox fail. In hindsight it should've been better anticipated, but... well, it wasn't, so we're doing what we can. I'm communicating with Ghurlag so we're not duplicating our efforts (or spending money unnecessarily) to bring a shoutbox back. Whether this means that particular shoutbox account or another one, and thus whether any messages from that shoutbox can be retrieved, has yet to be seen. I'll keep you informed.

The Shoutbox is failing again, during the weekend and today.

Shoutbox broke for me. Anyone else having the same problem?

We still have access to the other chat: http://bljunkiestemp.cbox.ws/ :)

Loads for me, though very slowly. Think shoutmix are under some heavy load, or else there's some kind of service degradation from a server going down.
