Shoutbox Removed

Sorry everyone, we had to remove the Shoutbox. This site is taking up too much bandwidth on our shared server and the Shoutbox was just making it worse. When GoDaddy suspended our account ’cause we went over the limit with bandwidth, we switched over to another host. However, the Shoutbox was still a problem on our shared server. This means, that we share our server with other websites and it was slowing their website just with our Shoutbox traffic.

We’ll try to find a way for you guys to chat around, until then maybe an AIM chat will do?

    Actually its about time. My sick of stupid users pretending to be me, LD2k, hZm, Nugget.

    Thats alot of dough.

  • ericthaimyshoe

    AIM Chatroom ! Someone make it, “GetGarnett.com” Chatroom. =]

  • http://hzmdesigns.com hZm

    Nope, we removed that Silo. Did you have a chance to see the newer Shoutbox? Very secure.

  • BringDFishBack

    Yea silo they made it so you could only post under your name. How could we set up an aim chatroom?

  • Faith

    Offtopic, but thank you so much for the KG Laker picture. It’s now gracing my desktop.

    KG come home to LA!

  • http://hzmdesigns.com hZm

    No problem! Glad you like it.

  • KB24KG21SUNSRGAY

    since u guys are getting pretty big with lots of ppl coming, why dun u guys set a donations thing with paypal. Im sure ppl would be willing to donate especially if you guys are trying to move to a dedicated server. Regardless keep up the good work.

    KG to LA!

  • http://hzmdesigns.com hZm

    I’m honestly considering it.

    I don’t like the idea of ad’s because I think it will ugly up the site, but if visitors are willing to donate we are willing to take I guess. We’re paying a bit more now for the server upgrade, unfortunately its still not enough.

  • http://www.mr47.com mr47

    I brought up the donations idea but it doesn’t seem to fly. I would go for the ads too.

    Just send the bill to kobe and tell him he owes you guys for getting this movement started for him.

  • http://hzmdesigns.com hZm

    I’ll make sure to bill the Buss family if a KG deal goes down.

    I’ll also accept season tickets. (Would save me a thousand dollars in tickets) Haha

  • The Nugget

    Am glad you guys understand. :)

  • SILO

    Yeah i saw it. Briefly but it wasnt there long. I kinda wish if there was a forum but i guess thats what clublakers and kb24.com is there for.

  • http://hzmdesigns.com hZm

    A forum with as much activity would be the same as a Shoutbox. I don’t really want a forum either.

    The new Shoutbox was great. You can only post with your registered username and we as admins had the option to ban IP’s or ban members.

  • http://www.mr47.com mr47

    Out of curiosity, how many MB a month are you guys allowed? Disk space and transfer rate? I have free disk space I’m not using but I’m not sure if it’s too little. I would give it up and you guys can redirect to your site, use it exclusively as a chatroom/shoutbox/forum.

  • admin

    Put it this way, out of the 4 Xeon cores in the server, our site was using on average 3 of them.

  • iblausy

    Fuck Phoenix. Fuck Steve Kerr. I hope that if they do get Garnett by trading Amare to ATL that it will blow up in their face. Nash has only 2 more good years in him and i hope they get knocked off in the playoffs both years, leaving Garnett in the same situation he was in in Minny. KG, realize that if you play for LA you and KOBE can go for it for at least 5-6 years!!! And Mr. Buss has offered you an extension. Has Phoenix? NO, they want to USE you to win ONE fucking championship, retire NASH’s jersey and then leave you to another rebuilding franchise. BE A MAN, DO THE RIGHT THING!

    p.s. miss the shoutbox

  • SILO

    Yeah, to bad it wasnt here long to be effective. At banning part was a great add-on.

  • Lakers305

    What about an IRC channel?? its much better than AIM, aint it??

  • kobE.24

    Hey guys how come my friends can see the SHOUTBOX and i cant??? They keep saying no we are talking on it rite now.. and im like no, it has been removed.. can u guys clarify this problem for me

  • http://twitter.com/nugge7 The Nugget

    The shoutbox is gone. I have no clue how your friends are seeing it.

  • kobE.24

    Yea.. thats what i was saying and they just told me that they guys u guys got a new host and they said there are 5 other ppl on it…

  • http://twitter.com/nugge7 The Nugget

    Ha. I have no clue how their on but it is deleted.

  • kb24lightsout

    Lakers should start looking to get oneal
    hes the next big thing the Lakers can get
    but it’s obviosly not going to be as good as Garnett…

  • ericthaimyshoe

    Sportscenter’s “My Wish” is so touching. LOL =|

  • cyrus

    Take a look at this one guys, It looks like Garnett to Phoenix is another BSPN hype. They are changing the story by the hour:

    “Three-team deal with Garnett, Stoudemire cools”

  • kgmvp

    haha the atl deal is dead we have chances now to get garnett

  • kgmvp

    i suggest we have a shoutbox here in the articles

  • kb24lightsout

    they said its most likely that a trade won’t happen before the draft so we can give up our 1st n 2nd round picks along w/ Bynum and Odom 4 Garnett dont cha think?????

  • http://twitter.com/nugge7 The Nugget

    Why are you guys posting NBA stuff on this Shoutbox post? lol

  • kb24lightsout

    because we can! lol so yes or no on my “trade”

  • http://twitter.com/nugge7 The Nugget

    Good point. :)

  • kobE.24

    haha.. i like that because we can! niiice ymm ure trade hmmm… well i think that is over doing the trade… if we can get more stuff from other teams with that, for example we can get JO with one or two of those players then maybe try a Ron Artest trade, and maybe even with out KG’s contract pick up Billups..

  • kobE.24

    woops i meant hmm* instead of ymm lol :D

  • kb24lightsout

    yah we can involve a third team if we need to and we wont have as much pressure on us to do it quick so we can make sure were doin the right thing.I would want to see Turiaf and Walton back on June 1st because they are good trading chips and Walton can be the 3rd player in a KG trade…

  • LAalltheway

    Good point, lightsout. Luke would add some nice trade value for KG.

  • kgmvp

    I just hope that Mitch Kupchack gets garnett.

  • kb24lightsout

    We have a good chance after the draft because we will have more to offer and KG will talk 2 KB24 and will tell Minny he wants to play in LA!!!

  • LakerNation1
  • lakers4life

  • NY Kobe Fan 8

  • lakersforlife77

    where am i supposed to waste my life now?

  • lakersforlife77

    you kno wuts crazy? This site never updated for some ppl and there were alot of ppl still on the shoutbox and there weren’t any new articles. It was weird because one guy said that their friend had said that the shoutbox was deleted. Lol it was weird.

  • KOBEISKING

    So who should we get now

  • Brandon

    Randolph from Portland. We can get him for nothing cuz Porltand is drafting Oden and looking to unload. We should wait until after the draft to get Randolph.

  • KOBEISKING

    any new news?
