    DFI encourages people to post which is what the forum is for. The chat box is good for everyone as its tucked away in a corner and all the regular users know about it. I think it's a win win. May be we can consider making a separate button for it than having it under quick links.

    Bhai log, please give time. We will get the new SB like the old one but in a different page. Link to that page will be put up in a separate button. Let us sort other issues especially the ones that have come about since we are under constant DDOS attacks.

    whole point of it is that its on main page...

    it is like tahirr square in egypt...if bloody square was somewhere obscure then mubarak would still be ruling with an iron fist.

    Sbox on front page, visible to all will probably not happen. It gets filled with profane and juvenile comments.

    is this a valid excuse? com'on baba, you can do better than that.

    baba, why would you change something that's is working just about fine and which is loved by everybody on this forum? if somebody is posting un-acceptable comments on SB then ban his rights to access shoutbox in future. it is as simple as that.

    India needs to be freed of congress.....
    .... DFI needs to be freed of lurker baba and his antics

    Are you afraid that high ranks like Kapil Sibal or some IAS will not join your forum if they see SB? Do you know they dont even know how to operate a computer at their age? Ask anyone above 50yrs old to find DFI on the net and they will give you a blank stare and you will get what i mean.

    Then the youth who come to this forum clearly have no objections at SB. As Messiah suggested make SB visible for privileged member's.

    Why do you want to throw away your USP? How is your personal opinion better than what the majority feel?
