Shoutbox Timeout - December 3, 2007, 02:28 PM

In the constant battle to keep the server from getting overstressed, I am putting a timeout on the shoutbox.

This will happen after 30 minutes of inactivity (it will cause your browser to stop loading the shoutbox in the background). This is for the case where people leave their browser open to .net and it keeps loading even when they aren't there.

To reload it, just reload the webpage. It will reset the timer when you shout, so if you are just chatting in the shoutbox without changing pages on .net, it shouldn't kill your shoutbox.

Lemme know if you see any problems.

Thanks, Rob. Yelling has always bothered me anyway. Would an "Inside Voice" Box be easier on the server? Just a suggestion.
