I can attest to this. Whenever my restriction would go up I'd just make a post in some GD spam thread or make a post equivalent to "I concur".That'd be an unnecessary restriction. And the reasoning you gave is unfounded. Having a shoutbox doesn't make people want to post less. It's a baseless conclusion that has been made several times without any evidence. All the top 10 shouters are posting regularly. Some not as prolifically as others, but still regularly enough. And the top ones posting a lot, including yourself. Sometimes there isn't anything interesting to post about. And the forums have a number of other issues which discourage posting, issues not everyone even can agree are even issues. It's complicated. Boiling it down to the shoutbox is not reasonable.
As of this post, they are, as of this post:
Everyone in the lifetop top ten here, since the last shoutbox purge, post on a regular basis, if not once daily, then at least a few times a week, which isn't bad. You yourself seem to be making about five or so posts a day. That is not bad. It's way more than most. You shouldn't be worried about it being too infrequent.

Bottom line, this isn't going to accomplish anything but annoy people. If it is even possible with this shoutbox in any case. Forcing people to post to access it might actually have the opposite affect and encourage poor quality posts just so someone can re-enable it.
Hadn't noticed this since attachments aren't used very often. It's fixed now, though, and I made it look a bit better on the dark world. Thanks.If you take a look at this post while using the ZD blue and ZD green layouts, the "Attached Thumbnails" box is completely white and looks really odd. Thought it might be something you can fix as it looks fine on ZD brown and The Dark World themes. I know it's just an aesthetic thing but still.
