Not so much a wish as just throwing the idea out there.

Its nice to have on the homepage or message boards page when say a teamate wants to congrat another on a milestone or someone wants to say what his weather is like as examples....can be used instead of a cafe or to enhance a cafe....a problem is it does need to be moderated and can take up a bit of space on the page.

Wonder what developers and users think?

This same answer should apply.

This is no place for that kind of junk.

One mans junk is another mans gold :) Expletives are not a problem as there are fantastic filters for shoutbox's that limit what words and symbols can be used.(In multple languages I might add)Should be no liability for the University and gives a relief valve to the forum so that a lot of the excess banter in posts can be taken to the shout.

All ideas are welcome. There is no need for such disrespectful reaction.

There's one on the NanoHive front page. It doesn't get much traffic, but the project is dormant right now while new science apps are being developed.

It's the only project I can think of off the top of my head that has one.

He asked what the users thought about it. I gave my honest opinion. No disrespect. He likes them, I think they are useless. It's called an opinion, not a statement of fact.

Should I lie and be condescending and say "Sure, it's a wonderful thing!" ?

I firmly believe that the Cafes should be removed from all BOINC projects. There is no need for a science project to provide a social networking forum. There are plenty of MySpace-type sites out there for that. Keep the forums on topic.

He's entitled to an opinion.
Your reaction is disrespectful.

This thread is loaded with context from other projects, that some people apparently don't know. Rather than to let it get out of hand, I closed it. If the project admin thinks it might be a good idea to have a shoutbox, we can always reopen a thread and talk about it in an open-minded way.
