The Chat Box is Dead

Due to lack of activity in the forums the site admins have had a discussion and decided to remove the shout box from Nintendo Realm. In order to grow and attract more members having an active forum is what draws people in. Originally the shout box was intended more as a quick and casual discussion area but recently we have been noticing that it has become the primary discussion area.

I also frequent several website administration forums and have read several accounts of site owners who have noticed similar when they put a chat box on their forum and regretted it. I know some of you who use it often will be disappointed but we (the site management) feel as though for Nintendo Realm to succeed we should try and get back to our roots as a forum.

What Yami said Waffle. XD

Also; yea the use of the chatbox is what was killing the site. A lot of great conversations were happening in the chatbox where the forum is where they should be happening alternatively.

Well; being that I never used the chatbox much it's usually due to no one being on when ever I did though. XD

Well apparently it worked, as there's far more activity on the forums now, so guess I can't complain!

That makes a lot of sense. I suppose for larger active communities it may be more beneficial. Great thinking, staff :)

Too many people were abusing it & not posting on the forum. It's only logical that it'd be taken away.
