Why no Shoutbox?

Some sites have a Shoutbox for comments that may not fit into a thread, it may save space/volume in this respect as well. Can even say things like Hi to a mate etc without interrupting a thread topic.

Can you link me to an example

I believe we used to have one but it was very rarely used.

Speaking of features for the forum what happened to being able to use the @ symbol to tag a user? I found that pretty useful.

Agree with all comments

It added a significant load on the server.
It’s designed for smaller, less active boards; we have too many users and posts.
