Thread: Shouts 'Count'

  1. #1

    Default Shouts 'Count'

    What's up with this 'SillyWilly' and his '8000 shouts' post? He was 2000 counts 4 days ago. Who can verify the claim, anyway and what purpose does it serve? I find is humourous but assanine.

    No different than the "post whores" you see on every site - within a year of registering they have 5000 posts, while respected, knowledgeable, people who've been there ten years or more may have 4000.

    Hm, what does that make me ... or you, for that matter?

    Personally, the most important statistic you can have at FlightSim.com, is whether you support the site or not.

    Having a First Class Membership or Supporting Membership means that you have contributed to the hobby you enjoy. Just as important, is writing articles (reviews, tutorials, etc.) and uploading add-ons for others to enjoy

    Downloading files and not contributing, is quite the opposite, which is why we encourage members to participate in any way they can :-)

    So where do all these 'shouts' appear then? I can't see any and I don't 'ignore' anyone! It may just be a glitch but this looks like some kind of spammer's hack to me.

    Shouts appear in the "Shoutbox", which like me, you may have turned off in your settings.

    Hi Tiger,

    The 'Shout' box will appear on the forum homepage if you have it selected........

    Go to your account settings page. In the settings panel at the left of the page at the bottom is an entry for Shoutbox - click on the settings option. When the options page load the very first option is to turn it on or off.......Scroll to the bottom of the list to save changes

    EDIT.....Damn - Charlie and his wackamole win again !!!!! ......EDIT END

    Speaking of shoutboxes, the only one that ever gets used is the "general" one. All the others seem like a waste of valuable website real estate.
