I assume everyone's noticed the problem with the Shoutbox. If not, go and try to post.

What's broken, and what's the consensus on why it broke? Was a setting (the daily limit) changed by accident?

That's what my secondfirst thought was but I'm no expert. (My first thought was the site gaining sentience and rebelling.)

Works for me too. Not sure what the problem might be, maybe a permission mask thing?

Still not working for me. Might indeed be a permission mask thing.

Checking permissions. Members still have permission to see and use the shoutbox, and the daily limit is 50.

Not sure what the problem is.

EDIT: I found a weird extra permission mask floating around called "New Group" that had a shout limit of 0. Nobody appeared to be using it, and I deleted it. Try shouting again on the off-chance that it was messing things up.

I figured out the problem.

Unfortunately, I have no idea as to the cause and the only solution is long and tedious.

For some reason, random members of the forum are having their individual settings screwed up, resulting in a daily shout limit of 0. This happens regardless of what permission mask that user has.

I have no clue why this is happening, and it appears the only solution is to go through and edit each user effected individually.

As it turns out, the individual thing does not actually work.

I am going to try and reset the entire shoutbox. Stand by.

Couldn't fix it. Couldn't find any way to fix it.

So I just got rid of the whole damn thing.

Haha. Well, thanks for looking into it for us.
