Would it be very complicated to add a "shoutbox" at the official ufo2000 matchmaker web page ( http://ufo2000.xcomufo.com:2000/ ) ?

Alternatively a shoutbox in this forum would also be quite cool.

It would somewhat improve finding opponets if you could leave a message that would read something like this:

Adding a shoutbox to a website is easy (even I am able to do that :laughsmiley: ). But:
1) http://ufo2000.xcomufo.com:2000 is generated from a script which is part of ufo2000-server package - so it would need to work with the Ufo2000's sources a bit (well....it is only my opinion, don't know details)
2) adding a shoutbox to the forum can be done if someone (e.g. you :) ) suggest this sollution to xcomufo.com/forum administrators - but in that case the shoutbox would contain informations not only from the Ufo2000's players but also Xenocide's team and X-Com fans (but from other case it will bring some more players to Ufo2000 maybe :D ).
In my opinion, good place for such thing is Ufo2000 main page.
