I think Mac Forums needs a shoutbox for people to chat and communicate quickly.

We've had a shoutbox in the past, if I remember correctly. Never added very much value to the forums IMO. If you want to scribble random thoughts, I'd say create a Twitter account ;)

I think Rob was trying to help by offering a more familiar metaphor. Besides, it doesn't matter who answers the question, as long as the answer makes sense to you, right? ;)

We just mis understood eachother. He didn't know i made the topic and thought that I didn't know what a shoutbox was, but really I was asking what something else was.

Yeah, I think he was responding to your question about what the IRC is.

No i wish he was responding to what the IRC was. I thought he was responding to what a shoutbox was. LOL

If you check out post #4 in this thread..."robduckyworth" was clearly replying to your question in post #3...about what IRC was.

Oh brother, now I think we're all a little confused! :D

Regardless, anyone might chime in to answer a question at any time, even if the conversation has swayed toward a slightly different topic. That's the beauty of the forum.

Maybe you were a bit confused as to what a Sticky Notice is? Surely you know what an IRQ channel is. Sticky notices are at the head of the forum on top to be read first.

I was directing your attention to the Sticky Notice which gives information about the IRQ channel.

Ah... my slip-up, maybe I was thinking about my IQ? :P Yes, I meant to say IRC channel. Can't blame macuser1232 for being confused. My apologies to him if I messed over his mind.... O:)

I was responding to macuser1232's question about what the IRC was. notice, I even quoted your question.

If you click chscag's "IRQ channel" (lol) link, you are guided to a how to page on how to link up with the rest of us. Its just a typo on his part.

I actually dont know what a shoutbox is. Though I am presuming it's the same kind of idea.

All of this could have been avoided. With a shoutbox, of course....
