I voted for the new chat. Just because Prime said the chatroom can be updated through the future while the shoutbox will remain janky. I often have to refresh the shoutbox to see shouts, which is more annoying to me than not having an archive.

I think option four is probably the most ideal. Most of our conversations in the shoutbox is asynchronous--be that we are not in the box at the same time or technical issues--and would be impossible to replicate in the chatroom. But when big events like E3 or a Nintendo Direct is on comments can at times come flying in pretty fast inthe shoutbox and that can make it a little difficult to see who said what at times. Especially those War Wasp scumbags.

And if we strictly/mostly use the chatroom for live events I'm not worried about archives because someone will create a thread containing all the information revealed and the conversation can continue from there. Yeah, I'm sure someone will make a funny or interesting comment but it would probably be a "had to be there" moment.

I'm not too keen on change, and i like the shoutbox just fine. But on the other hand, i can understand what some people would want the new one. So i just voted to keep both but focus more on the older shoutbox.

I'm going with option four.  Since the chatroom doesn't have public archives right now (only mod/admin archiving), we should only switchover for good once chat is upgraded to allow for public logs or if somebody mods chat to allow for public logs (like displaying public logs from the last three days or some other timeframe that's reasonable).

Given my habits lately, both gaming and socially, I can't promise I"d use either. Hell, I don't even step into the shoutbox anymore. So do whatever ya'lls want.

Also, suck it, Prime! You may wanted us to fight each to death for your sick amusement, but we are handling this in a mature fashion.*

*The inflammatory nature in which I called out your tyrannical ass does not count.
