Post New Feature: Watch Posts as they are made in "Real Time" (Testing)

I have decided to go ahead and unveil this for everyone at PTO, but we are still in the testing phase, so if this increases our system loads significantly, it may have to be turned off.

What this feature does is open a page that displays posts made by PTO members in "real-time". That means that whenever a new post is made, it pops up on this page right afterward:
http://www.prisontalk.com/forums/vaispy.php

Give it a try and let us know what you think here...

Happy New Year everyone!

David

It made me dizzy trying to look.

Maybe this would be good for haters that seem to think the stats on the front page are fake.




....and, then I found the 'pause' button....give me some slack, at least I did find it!

Never thought about it like that, but good point..

Next thing they will be saying is that I have a warehouse (sweatshop) in China where I pay 100's of kids to post for PTO...

If this feature doesn't create too much load it will be integrated into the new design that is about to drop.. (the infamous "new design")

Have mercy on the trouble makers, they have no better upbringing. And, go on with the new stuff, we're all anxiously waiting to 'see' it.

Pretty neat, would it just be on the main page, or would it be in all the forums?

I love this feature! When it gets moving really fast, it's hard for me to nab the place I'm trying to go!

This is awesome. It makes me go explore forums I've never been to and gives visual reinforcement that there a bunch of other people out there who are in a situation like mine.

Wow! I love it. Mind as I am in the UK, and so miss PTO's busiest times, It is great. I guess it could have your eyes spinning, when loads of people are all posting at the same time

Question David, Is this a feature that only members can use? I know most of the forums can be seen by guests. Except for LASO. So if guests can use this feature they will also see LASO posts? I linked to the feature from your link in the main forum thread. I just wonder if they can also do that?

Currently, it is for all forums and there is no way to set it to show specific forums only. There is an option to only show subscribed to threads, but unless you are just waiting for people to post in those threads, I don't think it will be very active.

It is permission based so if you are required to be a member to view a forum you won't be able to see the threads from that forum via the Real Time viewer if you are not logged in, etc.

David, thank you. It's like a roller coaster ride! But I got used to it in less than 5 minutes, and I, too, saw Forums and/or threads I never would have seen and that I would like to explore.
