I've been working on this project for a while now, it was originally called 'MyChat' or 'MyChatbox' but it was more along the lines of a shoutbox, than a chatbox so it has been named 'JustShout!'.
The entire concept of it is an image based shoutbox. Usual/traditional shoutboxes are hosted on the user's website and can only be viewed on that one page on that one site, this is 'portable' in a sense; you can link to it in any site/forum.
for instance, these following images are hosted on my site but can be viewed here.
[img]http://www.helraizer.co.uk/mychatbox/user/helraizer.gif[/img] - full (link supposed to be image)
[img]http://www.helraizer.co.uk/mychatbox/user/helraizer_myspace.gif[/img] - JustShout! mini (supposed to be image)
At the moment I have these following things have been implimented:
- Anti-spam/flood methods introduced: users can only post once every 60 seconds; once a user has posted 2 consecutive posts the cannot post again until another user has posted or until 1 hour (60 minutes) has passed.
-Registered users get both JustShout! and JustShout!Mini shoutboxes.
-Choice of 5 fonts and 6 colours to add variety to posts.
-The shoutbox author (user who's shoutbox it is) can delete posts the don't want in their shoutbox.
-Users (registered or not) who have posted in a shoutbox can edit and/or delete their posts.
-The image and form can be included on a myspace page so users can post directly from MySpace.
-users will be able to make their shoutbox different dimensions.
-users will be able to make a personalised censor list to filter posts with words they may find offensive.
-users will be able to upload their own background, choose different fonts and colours.
So, what do you guys (and gals) think? :D
Can you think of any other cool tools and 'things' I could impliment to make it better/more accessible?
