Would a ShoutBox/ChatBox be good on TTG?

Now it wouldn't be a regular plain everyday shoutbox you see on many of other forums. It would be custom coded and designed by me from the ground up. That way it will blend in perfectly with the rest of the site.

However, I see on most forums with a shoutbox, that the shoutbox takes most of the attention off of the forum, so most people don't post that often and just Shout in the Shoutbox. That is not a good thing, the shoutbox should be used only to chat about random things, not about Topics related to the forum. And the shoutbox should never be used for any kind of support or search box, that is what the forum is for.

Anyway, what does everyone else think, Should I custom code a ShoutBox for TTG?
