Is "Forum Spy" modification possible on TF?

Just curious - I belong to another board that is vbulletin-powered and they have a modification called "forum spy". Basically, when you click on it, it allows a user to view posts as they appear in real-time, in a scrolling format. It eliminates the need to constantly refresh or reclick on the forum or whatever.

Is this possible to use on this site? Sorry if it's been discussed before; I could find nothing on it.

Admin may respond, but I can tell you we had this for a short while but it was disabled because it makes the database work too hard, slowing the response down overall.

Is this still the case? On the Vertical Sports app, there is a "Latest" button which allows you to refresh and see the posts from all the forums since the last refresh. Is this at all possible here?

Re: Is "Forum Spy" modification possible on TF?

Can you provide an example of this to look at? We can see if it will be compatible with the forum and ask the mods how they feel about adding it.

This wasn't the board I was on, but it looked like this. All of the most recent posts, no matter what forum they were in, appeared in real time on the screen, so you never had to click around to the different forums to see if there were new posts. It also allowed you to view a much greater amount of posts (basically the last x number of messages that fit on the screen) instead of, once again, clicking around.



I do remember it wasn't foolproof, and the example above shows that "Forum spy not showing all new posts"

Thanks for the example. I'll show this to our techs so they can see if they can find a plug in for it and then test it out to see if it would be compatible with the forum. Also we would have to ask the Admin team here how they feel about installing this onto the forum.

Thanks
