JB: Firebolt Shoutbox
A sleek, new chatting experience for your community!


Introducing Firebolt..
Is your community in need of a place to chat onsite? Something fast, responsive, and functional? Then look no further. Firebolt is all you need.

Classic Shoutbox Style

Modern Shoutbox Style (added in 1.1.0)

Active Users Display (added in 1.2.0)

Installation is as simple as uploading the included files and importing the XML. You only need to edit the settings if you wish to configure which usergroups have access to certain commands.

Current Features
  • Simple installation & setup.
  • Extremely quick shoutbox system.
  • Permission-based shoutbox access. [NEW]
  • Private messaging system built in. [NEW]
  • Active users display system. [NEW]
  • Separate admin/mod commands (/prune, /ban, /unban, /notice).
  • Inactivity monitoring.
  • Custom shout formatting.
  • New, clean shout layout reminiscent of instant messaging clients.
  • XL version of the shoutbox.

Recent Changes
  • Added private messaging system.
  • Added permissions to use/see the shoutbox.
  • Added an active users display.
  • Added Modern Shout style.
  • Added toggle to disable stylizer display.
  • Added the XL shoutbox (accessible by clicking the shoutbox title).
  • Fixed a bug within the stylizer that did not allow users to change font/color.
  • Fixed a bug with displaying the shoutbox to unregistered members.

Firebolt is still in early beta; I wrote the first version in a single sitting in just 9 hours. If you stumble across any bugs, or you'd like to request a feature, then please let me know!

Just knowing the address isn't enough IMO.

If it was me:
- I'd message every month saying I want my account back, with as much detail as possible explaining why I'm the owner.

Details include:
- Name registered on the account.
- Email address associated with the account.
- Payment method used to purchase the license.
- Website the license was associated with and provide proof showing that you're the administrator with backend (phpmyadmin) access to the website.
- Ask them to check your current ISP- so they can check to see if it matches with your previous posts (before and after you lost the account).
- Provide them with full details of your real name & address (passport/drivers license as evidence).

^ Those are just some of the things I'd do to get my account back, if I was in the same situation as you.
Total transparency and supply as much evidence as possible.
Additionally, comply with any demands/suggestions they give (I'd doubt they'd demand anything unreasonable).

If I was in their situation (especially since vbulletin just been hacked recently), I'd probably wait 1 year to give you back your account.
Well in case somebody else claims to be the owner of your account.
If nobody else claims it for a whole year, then it's most likely yours.

I realise this is an old thread, but on the off chance anyone can help, is there a way to make this appear at the bottom of the page below all my forums but above the 'Whats going on?' section?

Rather than signing in with your email address, use your VB account number instead; then you can update your email from the Members area.

Hope that helps.

Avatars can be added with a small modification to the source/template. However, as I have dropped support for this plugin, I will not be releasing an update to enable this.
Professional web developer & sysadmin. Former bad man.
