Am going to try out discord to replace the shoutbox.
There are some big benefits to doing this.
1. removes processing off the forum server freeing up processing for other things
2. Speeds up loading of the portal page once we disable the shoutbox
3. better for links and other posting (much richer in terms of info pulled in)
4. better performance and notifications on mobile clients - dedicated apps for android and ios
There are also dedicated apps for windows, mac and linux debian or linux generic, or via web browser
At first glance your probably wondering why I'm moving us to a Voice Server!!
But it's more than that, and you don't need to use the voice to make use of the application/server.
I have dedicated bot setup so any new threads or posts are posted onto the text channel, so consider it just a different way to experience the content.
To use discord you will need to create an account there. And then associate that account with your account here on steelbookhunterz under the external accounts link http://www.steelbookhunterz.com/account/external-accounts
Once you have the association done just read http://www.steelbookhunterz.com/discord/ to join the server.
