Also, if others see her name as logged in, they will pester her with shouts. Is there a way to require log in but not show the name as logged in? I would log in if that was the case.


Jim is a nice guy with everybody and that's quite a gift since tastes and mental health differ a lot from one to another. Not trying to form any group within a group by saying that.

I wasn't the one to insult Eloy, but i personnally think that some smart registered shouters are much more pissing off than just one shouting alone like this and fainting a second class hero.

mossy, why do you need to log out before you hit the X?

I think she was just saying that was one choice. If she's not logged in, all she has to do is hit the x. If you're not logged in you don't need to log out. but you knew that.

Thank you for posting Mossy. For some reason there was a perception that I did not support logging in. I do. However, think about this everyone:

If you need to log in to shout, when you shout we all know who it is - your name is on the shout, shout let it on out (oops I just foreshadowed my next show...tonight there will be details).

I see no need to put on the main page who is logged in. It's really not a necessity. Why not just say how many are logged in? Mossy is exactly right when a) if you're not there and logged in it looks like you're ignoring people, and 2) the name stays on. I've logged out and seen my name on there later also.

So can we just require log-ins and not have the names up and just do it?

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

Hi roger, actually it's not the logging out, it's the logging in LOL!!

Rick, I think you like to do it properly and log out completely. I just use the "x" and close the browser.

I like Rick's idea of not having the list of people who are online, because often I don't have time to chat, I only have time to look and see what everyone else is chatting about. Being on the list but not saying anything feels rude and I'd rather not be on it when I only have time to lurk.

If I remember correctly, we never used to list who was in black, we only listed who was in white and the forums.

This is all getting a bit detailed for the capacity of my brain, but this is what I support for what it's worth:

Logging in to use everything on the site including black

Doing away with the list of who's online

By the end of this thread KW will be drowning himself down at his local

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

I also think logging in for Shoutbox is a great idea.
Some guests can get rather rude and evil. At least we would know who is saying what!

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

I agree with Hawk. Anonymity should not be used as an excuse to be rude. The shout box is a great forum to get to know one another, I have made some good new friends. Trouble makers need to be stopped. You cannot lose members just because some unregistered people are running riot in the shout box. What do people have to lose by being registered anyway!

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

I believe that a few of the RUDE "guests" are actually just ONE registered member, who is just being rude to spite people here that they disagree with!

Seriously....

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

Logging to shout in black should be required.
And I agree with Dinosaur.. hidden mode on main AM site would be good.

Then don't log in.

Again, then just don't log in.


The who's on line list will remain. It's little more than an extrapolation of the info that was always available within the forum.

Making logging in a requirement is looking like it will become policy. If you log in, you will be listed.

Re: Idiot Guest Shouters

You're automatically logged in, and show in the list of who's online if you're responding to something in the forums.

Woj's idea of having a hide option is good, imho.

FWIW, none of you are hidden -- at least to me.

This is an exercise in not having me have to search through logs to determine who said what and or from where, and then having to spank the offending party for saying/posting something inappropriate.

I think the thing that pissed me off the most was the "guest" posting the 128K stream URLs in the shoutbox.

Then we're back to the issue from the old site... two separate logins to one site. Oh no, that is not going to be.

We all know that. We also know that work has IT depts who know what we are doing. That was never the point.

We've had five different people say that it would be good to have to log in but not post the names on the front page. If you want to put it to a poll, do so. If not, it really isn't that big of a deal to anyone what is decided.

We'll all do whatever it is that is decided. See you Sunday....

It's a trivial matter to restrict the shoutbox to only registered users.

Wot say y'all? Is it time for a poll?

The only pole I see as being needed is one to beat these idiot shoutbox posters sharply about the brainless-box.
