  • How it Works

    We've tried to make The Shout Wall as easy to use as possible, while still giving you what you want, where and when you want it.That is, you shouldn't need to read this to use the service, but if you want a head start or want to become an expert sooner rather than later, read on...

    The first time you call into The Shout Wall we'll ask you to go through a quick and painless sign up process. The four things we'll ask you for are:

    • Your Gender (easy, right?)
    • Your Name or Shout Wall Tag (like “Sally, from San Francisco” or “Cali Surfer Girl”)
    • A short Voice Profile that tells the other Shout Wall users a bit about yourself (like “I'm a graphic designer by day and a chill girl by night. I like going out to movies or concerts, and have recently taken up yoga.”)
    • A 4-digit pass-code (to keep your account safe and secure)

    Once you're signed up, the next time you call we'll just ask you for your 4-digit pass-code. And if you call from a different phone than the one you signed up from, you can access your account using the original phone number plus your pass-code. You can also add the number you're calling from to your account so you can get back into the action quickly the next time you call.

    Help!

    Any time you get stuck or aren't sure what to do, you can press 9 to repeat your current options. At most menus, you can also press 0 for more help – we'll play you an extended description of the options currently available to you, giving you a better idea of what's going on and what you can do next.

    Main Menu

    The main menu gives you three options:

    1. Listen to Shouts
    2. Record a Shout
    3. Manage Your Account

    Listen To Shouts

    Pressing 1 from the Main Menu takes you to where the action is. We give you full control over what you want to hear.

    The first question we ask is “Who do you want to hear?” Your options are:

    1. Everyone else on The Shout Wall
    2. People on your Friends List
    3. Just shouts you follow
    4. Just shouts you created

    You'll probably want to start off by listening to everyone else on The Shout Wall, to get a feel for how it works, the topics and conversations going on, and of course the many “personalities” that visit The Shout Wall!

    When you choose to listen to everyone else, we'll ask you what category you want to listen to. Your choices are:

    1. General Chatter
    2. Relationship Problems and Advice
    3. Sports
    4. Religion and Spirituality
    5. Jokes and Humor
    6. TV and Movies
    7. Trash Talk
    8. Confessions

    Once you've chosen a category, we'll give you the choice of what you want to hear (and how). Your choices are:

    1. New Shouts: We'll play shouts in this category that you haven't heard yet, from oldest to newest
    2. Updated Shouts: We'll play shouts in this category that you've heard, but have replies that you haven't heard yet, from oldest to newest
    3. Recent Shouts: We'll play all shouts in this category, from newest to oldest.
    4. Hot Shouts: We'll play the hottest shouts in this category, from hottest to least hot. A shout's hotness is based on the number of Thumbs Up it's been given, together with the number of replies it's received.

    You'll then hear the shouts that other shouters have created. Before each shout you'll hear how many replies it has, then you'll hear the shout itself.

    You can skip to the next shout by pressing 3 at any time, or choose from the menu options you'll hear once the shout has finished playing:

    1. New Replies: Listen to unheard replies for the current shout
    2. All Replies: Listen to all replies for the current shout
    3. Next Shout: Go to the next shout that matches your listening criteria
    4. Reply: Create a new reply for the current shout
    5. Follow/Un-follow: Add/remove the current shout to/from your list of “Followed Shouts”. You can listen to just your Followed Shouts by choosing option 3 on the Listen To Shouts menu.
    6. Mark Category Heard: Mark all remaining shouts in the current category as heard (only offered if you're listening to new shouts)
    7. Actions: Go to the Actions Menu – see below
    8. More info: Go to the More Info Menu – see below
    9. Repeat: Hear the current shout again

    Actions Menu

    When you press 7 after listening to a shout, you're taken to the actions menu. Here you have the following options:

    1. Thumbs Up: Give (or remove) Thumbs Up for this shout. Giving Thumbs Up means you agree with the shout's creator and what they're saying. This also influences the score of the shout when other callers choose to listen to “the hottest shouts”.
    2. Flag Shout: When you come across something that's inappropriate, offensive or just plain annoying (like silent shouts, or shouts with music for example), you should flag them. If enough people flag the shout, it will be taken off The Shout Wall.
    3. Block User: When you really don't like the person who created the shout you just heard, you can block them. Once blocked, you won't hear any of their shouts or replies, for a period of 90 days. For you, it'll be like they're not even on The Shout Wall. For them – nothing changes. They can still hear your shouts and replies, but you'll never hear anything they create.
    4. Delete Shout: This option is only offered when you're listening to a shout that you created. It gives you the ability to remove your own shouts from The Shout Wall. Once deleted, no one else can hear the shout or any of the replies to it. This action is final and can't be undone.

    #.  Exit: Return to the previous menu

    More Info Menu

    When you press 8 after listening to a shout or a reply, you're taken to the More Info Menu.

    Here you have the following options:

    1. Friends: Add/remove the person who created this shout or reply to/from your friends list. You can listen just to shouts created by your friends by choosing option 2 on the Listen To Shouts menu.
    2. User Name/Profile: Hear the name and profile recording for the person who created this shout or reply.
    3. This User's Shouts: Take a detour from your current shout listening, and go listen to all shouts created by this user (newest first)
    4. Block User: When you really don't like the person who created the shout you just heard, you can block them. Once blocked, you won't hear any of their shouts or replies, for a period of 90 days. For you, it'll be like they're not even on The Shout Wall. For them – nothing changes. They can still hear your shouts and replies, but you'll never hear anything they create.
    5. The Shout Wall: For them – nothing changes. They can still hear your shouts and replies, but you'll never hear anything they create.

    #.  Exit: Return to the previous menu

    Record A Shout

    Pressing 2 from the Main Menu lets you create a shout of your own. You'll choose a category, then record your shout. Once done, you can listen to it, do it over if you need to, or save it so that other Shout Wall users can hear it and reply to it.

    Manage Your Account

    Pressing 3 from the Main Menu takes you to the Manage Your Account menu.

    Here you have the following options:

    1. Manage your Friends List: Review people on your friends list, with the option to remove them or listen to their shouts
    2. Manage Your Name/Profile Recordings
    3. Change Your Pass-Code

  • Guidelines

    We like to keep things fun and relaxed on The Shout Wall, but we have a few rules that we take really seriously - if you don’t want to get kicked off and never let back on again, be cool, follow the rules, and everyone can have a great time. Remember, calling The Shout Wall is a privilege, not a right.

    • We have a lot of power, and we won’t hesitate to use it, but we aren’t all-powerful. Messages are not moderated and we (or any third-party associated with us) take absolutely no responsibility for the content of messages you or others leave or listen to on The Shoutwall. It’s free speech, but it’s your free speech.
    • This is a service for grown-ups - you have to be 18 years or older. No ifs, ands, or buts.
    • Once your messages are posted, they are completely public. Anybody can call in and hear them, and we reserve the right to reproduce and rebroadcast them (unedited of course) royalty-free. So, it’s best to only say things you don’t mind anybody hearing.
    • If we decide, for whatever reason, to remove messages from the service, we can and will. We might even terminate an account if we believe it’s necessary.
    • Other callers need to be able to understand hear what you’re saying, otherwise what’s the point of calling? At the moment, that also means speaking in English – we might add other languages in the future, but for now, only English please.
    • You can’t use The Shoutwall to infringe anyone else’s rights - privacy rights, property rights, or any other rights.
    • It kind of goes without saying, but we’re saying it anyway - you can’t use The Shoutwall to engage others in any illegal activity.
    • Don’t use The Shout Wall to sell stuff or advertise anything. There are better places for that kind of thing anyway (like craigslist, kijiji, eBay etc.).
    • You can’t use The Shout Wall to harass people or be offensive, including (but not only) slanderous, abusive, or defamatory statements; or racist, obscene, or offensive language. And don’t post copyrighted material unless you are authorized to do so.
    • If we receive any complaints about anything you post, we won’t hesitate to act in accordance with the law.
    • For your own protection, don’t put any contact information in your messages, including telephone numbers, postal addresses, email addresses, web sites, and anything else that might specifically identify you.
    • While we will do our best at making sure everything works all the time, if messages are lost or the service is unavailable at any time, we won’t be held responsible.

    If you have any questions about these guidelines, send us some feedback at info@theshoutwall.com.
