Is it my imagination that now we have to see the useless crap in the right column in all forums? And get rid of that stupid asinine shout box!!!

I agree, the shout box serves no purpose

While the shout box is no longer used as it was some time ago, I don't see what it's hurting. Some may want to use it for the banter it was once known for again, must admit there were some pretty interesting chats in it. Pretty simple if you don't like it don't use it. I'd like to hear how other board member feel about the shout box.

I don't use it - but it doesn't bother me. Truth be told, I ignore it when I go online.

I tried using it when it first came out, but I wan't quick enough and it seemed that any discussion I got involved with was soon buried behind 3 others where the writers were faster then me on the keyboard.

Either way - it's OK with me.

Look what's there. Dummies who think it's for answering their tech questions and when they don't get an answer probably get pissed at us. So it does have negative implications. I posted there in bold one time "ASK YOUR TECHNICAL QUESTIONS IN THE RELEVANT FORUM, NOT HERE!" remember? Nobody posted there for a very, very long time until Dexman said something and my post scrolled away.

If you want to engage in "banter" post in The Phone Booth...

And I know I'm getting old but is it my imagination that the right column now shows in all the forums instead of just the forum list page? I mean really, do we really need the most recent posts, the dumb ass shout box, newest members, forum stats, birthdays, calendar, and top posters assaulting us all the time??

At the bottom of the page is where there is an option to hide the entire right column. It takes out the shout box and ads. Not sure if it reappears on the next login, but, it does work.

Thanks, I did that and it works fine! Guess I'm the dummy that didn't know that trick.

I think it might be a new feature on our settings, I am not sure though!

Above the privacy policy button at the bottom of the page is a show/hide columns on this page tab. Cleans it up nicely

Did that. Then I went to page 2 of this topic and it's back again! Gotta do that for every page?? What sense does that make.

Why don't you show it only for those who are non-members and don't log in like other sites do. Membership has it's privileges.

ETA: I think the right column for each forum used to be just ads. But there was a right column.

I went into your profile Hal, and I turned off the right column not to show for you! You are good to now!
