    This could function as a shoutbox I reckon.

    And if you miss the ability to post a shout using the keyboard, you can do it here (and in any discussion) by hitting Ctrl+Enter.

    Of course, it's upside down. Does that matter?

    Well, even if it doesn't work quite the same way, it can perform the same function. And it's at least as fast.

    And after you visit the shoutbox the first time you'll always get taken to the latest post thereafter.

    I only see one potential problem with this being the shout box...

    If Robert Lockhart joins and finds this...

    ... it will become the Manifesto Box. :-O

    Meow!

    Hey MoS that was funny. But what would Banno have to say about it.
    Wish the old bugger would show up.

    Funny about the election, I'm out west, where the overwhelming majority are conservative, but I'm from back east, and regardless of that, am damn liberal -- so the other day at the grocery store, the check out lady asked me about my political allegiances, and I told her, and she did not like that at all. Claimed that I was the only liberal that she had seen come through that store, and started ranting about it, and moving super fast to get rid of me. I thought it was pretty amusing.

    That's nothing, I've had to use a Kindle to access the site when away from my laptop at the moment cos I broke my smartphone. Not fun.

    The drafts feature is pretty awesome, no? Another one I like: if you're in a discussion with multiple pages, double click on the right of the screen to go to the next page, on the left to go previous.

    I have been watching the main page over at PF for the last few days, and I am surprised to see the number of invisible members online. Lots more than before. Are people trying to go unnoticed over there now?

    Would the invisible thing even work on the administrators?

    Any reason for the two separate "Subscribe Now" links in the "Subscribe" tab?

    Top and bottom of the page. It'll make more sense once there's a whole load of text in between them.

    I never knew there was a way to be invisible. Does that just mean you're lurking around without logging in?

    For like years I thought that "invisible member" was just someone's name...

    This is on PF yes? No you can actually turn on a setting to make you appear as invisible (huh?) so that your name doesn't appear at the bottom of the page under "Currently viewing this thread". You just appear as "invisible member".

    But here, everyone is invisible. I like that. It removes another distraction. However you can see who's online by going here: http://thephilosophyforum.com/profile/members/online

    theSoren seems like a decent guy..It's too bad he didn't start posting sooner to quell the exodus.

    He's a PR guy, doing his job, attempting to secure financial assets. He isn't posting about topics that interest him, but rather the directions PF can go to make them more money, while attempting to calm everyone's shit.

    Even so, if he would have showed up the day of or after the sale and explained his/their intentions, I'm not sure this site would exist. PF probably would have ended up with some form of ads based on what Paul and others have said recently.
    This site is visually far prettier than the old PF and has some nice features.
