oh yeah ... thats the word i forgot to use ... redundancy ...

... we dont want this to be another redundant feature, which is just doing same thing as another feature ... in a sense too many places to do the same thing?

I feel the shoutbox would be the easiest way to fuel more forum participation actually. Noting new additions to the site and passing along new Hikki news real-time can only help. Being about to discuss without having to sign in and wait for some else to see your post. You can also serve as a feed case of members attending events.

i think that would be great. but the thing with that is, i dont want it to end up being where all the hikki news would be announced/discussed - hikki news should go in the forums, where there is a better organization and history for it. if something is just announced in the shoutbox, it would dissappear after X number of lines.

But to be clear - I think this might work, will likely try it. Right now, just looking for more thoughts from ppl

It can be added to both though. The boards first and then shoutbox for the entire site. Pulls in new members that way in my opinion.

Actually i saw some news related to Hikki on Twitter a few weeks ago. Just an article said, one of Korean group singer also listen to Utada Hikaru, but i don't post it on the forum... my bad.

Why not make a polling for UtadaNet Member or non member ,whether they like to add Shout Box or not. I know members here also read this thread just lazy to post comment.

If many member like it, well there you go Q will add "shout box" here.

Just one thing from me if the "Shout Box" out of control, I hope Q consider to removed it.

Peace and Out

Please explain clearly and in detail how Shoutbox will interact in conjunction with the forums,.....

What will be the advantages?? .........this is important for people to understand......

None of this makes any sense ..... Can we please be crystal clear on what is being proposed .....

Tristan sorry to nag ....please present and explain your ideas .....this vague short one line reply is not enough .....

"It can be added to both though. The boards first and then shoutbox for the entire site. Pulls in new members that way in my opinion"...........

How ??....

One question ....Log in Yes or no ?

If no... please explain how this will be practically managed i.e in relation to business as usual posting in utadanet forums ....

Please walk us through these changes ......hold my hand .....

We need to have heads up on some of the changes before Implementation

I originally thought of one for this site to:

-Boost user activity
-grant live discussion on current events
-Invite non-members for quick commentary

All this being because the boards are rather slow in Utada's (LONG LONG)off-season. Whether the boards are actually moving or not regulars would naturally check in knowing that someone could have at least left something in the box. Shoutbox discussion can be moved to boards at will of members and command of mods if it has gotten to big for the box.

The thing I can find being is a issue is topic flow. What topics can the box be used for is in question because of how inactive Hikaru often is. However in concert season or during live appearances, it can be used as a news feed.

Thanks Lobbo shoutbox does have appealing qualities, and if a decision goes ahead for a vote\poll and the results reflects the majority of opinions so far then some form of trial might be in the offing .....
