Live Topic?
Theres a Feature called LiveTopic, and its really cool, It refreshes the posts on threads itself so you dont have too.. I think it would be pretty cool for WI to have :)

Ive seen it on some other sites like Webkinz Addictz and theres alot of positive feedback about the site because of that :)

Reasons this would be good (from other members):

1) It would cut down on "refresh" spam posts
2) You wouldnt have to press F5 a billion times at DCT's

Re: Live Topic?
I love that idea! It would be so much easier on threads that are really busy like the DCT! [rep to you]

I have seen it as well. I really like it. I don't like having to refresh all the time nor do I like the 'refresh' posts.

Re: Live Topic?
DCT = daily chat thread .... a place a lot of us hang out and shoot the breeze. There are 2 of them on WI. One in the open mike section and one in the Gift Exchange section.

Live Topic: basically threads that are being actively posted in are automatically updated and it registers as a 'live topic' thread. It means no more having to hit refresh to see if someone posted.
