IP.Shoutbox? O.ò

Well, some minutes ago I've opened IB ACP to remove the "Firefox Download Day" code from all skin wrappers and in the space of "Latest IPS Blogs" i've seen as first link IP.Shoutbox!

 

First thought was: WTF?!? :huh:

 

 

Here a copy of the blog entry:

In our efforts to improve the services offered to you through IPS Resources, we will soon be releasing another community-driven project, IP.Shoutbox. Much like IP.Tracker, this will be an IPS-sponsored project written by you, the community.

 

We have approached two people who we feel will do a great job on IP.Shoutbox, these two are currently working very hard to produce a beta of the modification. The developers we have chosen are vadim88, and Shawn Dean. These two will keep you up-to-date regarding the status of this project via the IP.Shoutbox forum. IP.Shoutbox is based on Deans modification 'D22-Shoutbox', and he will be working very closely with us on this component.

 

IP.Shoutbox has been written with IPB3 in mind, for example, the javascript uses the prototype library to allow the move to IPB3 be all that much easier, the code will be commented throughout so people looking to get involved will know what function is doing what, please remember, even though we have two developers who will start this project off, this is a community-driven project, if and when you find bugs, and you know how to fix them, please provide the fix as it makes it all that much easier for the developers! If you have code contributions, please feel free to submit them in the IP.Shoutbox forum, we welcome your input!

 

As with all community projects, IP.Shoutbox will be offered for free via IPS Resources for current license holders. We will be posting more updates about this project and the updates coming to IPS Resources shortly.

 

 

This is for sure a nice idea, but i hope the Shoutbox will be also supported by those 2 developers because as many of you may know Dean is known for "not" supporting his mods :(

Never liked ShoutOut, also now is ioncube encoded so you need to have ioncube loaders to run it.

 

Personally i don't like encoding of free mods.

Encoded mods are crap and I will never use any mod by any modder who decided to encode their mods...

Secondly, Shoutout isn't nearly as good as deans.

The latest one by InfernoTechnologies is awesome but I don't like the refresh rate or the look of it. but I do love how you can have private shouts...that there is awesome!

Yeah, I hated the fact it was ioncube encoded at first, but after getting my host to install it it was all good. His latest version has private shout ability, but I'm guessing its not as easy as Inferno's private feature.

 

When you say Shoutout isn't nearly as good as deans, can you expand on this or link me to a previous thread somewhere that compares the coding/features. I had heard that one of them was a huge resource hog, but I thought it was Dean's.

Again ?!

Some time ago, Fuse decoded this mod :P

Honestly i don't know.. last time I've seen his mod on IZE was ioncube encoded but then he moved on Invision Modding where i am banned so haven't followed anymore the upgrade process.

Yes, Dean shoutbox uses more resources than FuSe but if you set it up like there (only on board index) with 60 seconds of refresh time and 5 minutes of inactivity the load is smaller.

 

Infact i don't have any problem there with the shoutbox (also when more than 30-35 users are online sometimes) and i'm on a shared server.

 

 

 

EDIT: Also i like a lot D22-Shoutbox layout, ShoutOut is ugly in my opinion :P

Shoutbox blows with big boards/websites like mine...everyone is just gonna spam in it lol

 

From my expierences, shoutbox works on smaller websites better.

My exact reason for liking deans better!!

 

Also my site is sorta large but I don't have a load problem and only those who have donated can access the shoutbox..

Its a nice way to do it to not only get donations but to limit its use :)

 

 

EDIT: hehe just noticed Im an "Elite Member" WOOT!

Thought I might make some input here, D22-Shoutbox is a base :-) We WILL be changing it a lot before the initial release, and its coming on smoothly at the moment. But yeah, we chose it over ShoutOut because the base code is viewable for one, and Dean was willing for us to do this.

Yep, i know that. I've read the blog entry on IPS and also i had a quick talk with vadim :P

 

 

Anyway nice to see you there Alex :)

Im glad to see that Dean is working on it because simply put, his mods ROCK! but you are right, there is no support at all from him :(

Well... seems that what i said in my first reply is no more a "possible problem" seeing that from today I'm one of the developers that works on IP.Shoutbox :P
