First question regarding development of the new site:

Does anyone use the Guestbook feature?  Would there be any tears shed if that feature didn't appear in the new site?

Sound off below.

I am not familiar with the guestbook. I like the Who's Online. I suppose the "Buddy List" could go.

That's kind of what I figured most peoples' reaction would be. Smile  It's part of your profile.  I've never used it either.  This was a softball to get things rolling.

The Who's Online feature is actually already set up on my dev system.  It's actually a native part of the framework (minus the in chat designation bubble - I haven't bothered with that yet).

As one of the earlier members of the site I can weigh in on this: I have two people that signed mine since I joined 10½ years ago. 

I would posit the record holder isn't terribly higher. Wink
I'm not overly fond of Zeb's Guide...nor do I have any qualms stating why. Tongue out

I have 6 posts in my guest book. Triple Shadow shacks but not terribly higher. I notice that w00t's post is not anonymous? guess his profile was deleted.

for a long time I use to post a welcome in all new members guestbooks. I am probably the record holder for most guest book posts. In fact w00t once complimented me on the good job I was doing as the self appointed welcome party to the new members. That said I fell behind and gave up on it a couple of years ago and I would not care if it was not included in the new site.

Cry I'm guessing you never saw my welcome to the site message, which proves the point the guestbook is as useful as tits on a bull.

I seem to recall such things being quite popular in the late 90s/early 2000s. But I didn't know this site had one Foot in mouth

More evidence that a guest book is not needed- I signed yours as well.

I don't use the guest book.  I do use the buddy list, especially when chat was working.
