Live topics!

Post by AlphaPkz on April 1st 2010, 3:39 am

I don't think this has been posted before (I searched "live topics"). You know vbulletin's live topics feature? If the topic is "Hot" or popular, you don't need to refresh your page but it just pops there kinda like an instant message! When you're on the topic on the most recent post, a new post slides under it and you can just read it without refreshing or anything. This can save a lot of time and make topics more popular and more posts in a topic! This may not be possible but this is my first suggestion and I'm sure other people would also like this idea!


Please vote on the poll if you like my idea! :wouhou:

Sounds like hell on the servers. Wouldn't it have to keep sending to and from the server? If so, then that might not be a very good thing.

However... I like the concept of this.
Would it be an option or just automatic?
(If it's an option, would it be individually set by each member, or universal for the board?)

The feature you're talking about is an "option" on Vbul forums.

IMO, having an icon that shows what topics are "hot" or not is good enough.

TBH, that's how most of the Vbul forums I partake of run anyhow.

SO, I vote "No".

Not a problem.

I only ask, that you, (and all others that ask for Vbul options,) really examine the options offered by this service, and realize that Vbul charges pretty much for ANY access to its program type for a reason.

I have a LOT of experience w/ Vbul BTW....

You see many free Vbul hosts?

IF SO, PLEASE inform me....K?

I used to go on a forum that had this in 'recent' it was brilliant. The forum was totally made & coded by the admin though. I don't think it is likely to happen with Forumotion,but it would be brilliant if it did, so I voted yes. Smile

It would be really cool if they just popped up! It would be easier to make replies too.

I love vBullitons Livetopic... I don't like that vBulluton doesn't have any free options though xP
I would love to see this on forumotion. But like many people said, the servers may not be able to handle it.
