I have been noticing the words "Live Topic" next to a thread name after exiting the thread. What's that all about?
Have I been missing something??

I've added "Live Topic" to the forum.

Here is what it does; If you post a reply to a thread and just sit there, if someone else posts a reply, you do not have to refresh the page to see their post. It just magically appears right before your eyes. There is a video of this in action, but a young guy created it and some of the words used are foul, not real bad, but I just thought I'd warn people if they have young kids near them. You can go to you tube and search "Live Topic" to see it if any of you want to.

Basically when a new post is made, that thread becomes live for a pre-determined amount of time. And any new posts will automatically generate and appear.

If you see it next to a thread, it means that topic is still live.

Sadly, its disabled for now until the Whiz kid that made it, updates it.

that almost makes it like a chat room at times.
