Hello everyone.

I have installed a "Live Threads" thing on the forum, and I will be testing it over the week.

Basically, Admins (and if testing goes well, moderators) can activate a "Live Thread" option on a thread, and from that point on posts should automatically appear without having to manually refresh the page. Hopefully, this will improve the experience of very fast moving threads.

We have a number of sync listens over the week. If you are taking part, you should see this in action. Let me know if it is both working for you, and if you like it.

It was in action on the Lana Del Ray sync listen thread this evening, and from my end seemed to work well. However, it seems like the very start of the thread couldn't be seen when in live mode, so I'll need to figure that out.
