You guys know how in shoutboxes, new messages appear without refreshing the page, etc.
What if that were the case in actual topics? Like, you could be in a thread using the fast reply, and while you're in the middle of typing out your post, if someone else was posting at the same time, you would see his message automatically show up before you would find out after making your post.
Although this sounds like a good idea I think it might be hard to do but would need ajax of some kind.
If that add this they could add Ajax fast posting as well.
I think this would be a waste of resources to be honest. I've never seen a thread so active that users were just refreshing their page until a new reply was posted. Generally users go out and look at other topics if they're "waiting" for a response in a particular topic. That's what a forum is all about.
I agree if this was put in it might just like shoutbox's cause High cpu loads and may cause your site to get suspended on a shared host.
What's an ajax??
