Donor or not ,you are not exempt from the rules mate....you have a 7-day ban on Shoutbox (Ban ends 12/08/2023)
has been written many times on Shoutbox:
''Anyone asking for feeds or suppling information for a feed request in the shoutbox will now get a 7 day chatbox ban. If you repeat this youll be banned from the forum'

What has happened to the shoutbox?
Maybe some got banned and lost access?
This is shoutbox header message
Technical questions on the setup of satellite equipment or requests for information on feeds belong on the forum. This adds content to the forum. Anyone asking for technical help or requesting information regarding feeds in the shoutbox will be banned from the shoutbox for 7 days.

I never request feeds because I'm not interested in them and I don't think I've asked about the set up of Sat equipment either.

Thanks very much.

I don't think I've done anything wrong.
I have no doubt you have, they may just have been access level change for shoutbox and you either haven't been here long enough or made insufficient amounts of posts to get access? Only @Ferret @Rocknroll and other admin would know for sure?

it might be worth considering starting a channel on T_elegra_m for LiveChat

I'm excluded from chat as well. I'm long time member and i havent done anything wrong. It's okay if you wanna set rules for chat and exclude certain members, but at least have the decency to inform members.

The only group restricted from shout box is newly registered members or members with less then 50 posts

We were getting spam posted in the shout from members with no posts.

Yes now you know .
Have to say its a very wise decision and promotes users to become much more active without the constant spamming .
Shoutbox should never be taken for granted anyhow which now should mean it wont ever be .

Because if they were banned for spamming they would just make another account and do it again. With a 50 post minimum it would generally mean you were an active member of the community and less likely to spam the board.
Exactly right mate.

Another reason is spending the time moderating it. Moderating the forum is the best use of our time not a shoutbox.
