    In an effort to bring awareness to new features that people may have overlooked with the new format, I've decided to highlight new features until they are done updating the site.


    Today's feature: http://rapmusic.com/chat/

    The Shoutbox/Chat is something that is completely new to Rapmusic.com and conveniently, it is integrated into the site so you just have to be logged in to be able to post in it.

    1) The menu link to get to the Chat
    2) Members actually in the chat room at the moment

    Not a whole lot to describe about using the chat since it's basically a simplified version of the regular text editor form you use to make posts.

    Icons from left to right:
    Bold, italics, strikethrough, image embeds, url links, and smilies.

    There are no notifications at the time of writing this but if you have the chat open in a separate tab in your browser, the title of the tab which usually looks like this:

    Will begin to flash like this when there is a new message:

    So while there isn't a way right now to have the chat wherever you are in the forum, you can at least do other things on the internet while keeping the chat open.

    The shoutbox is pretty dope / will be cool if it becomes more active. There were like 9-10 members on there at one point. I like it.
