I'm going to have to take a look at it and probably work with the author to make some performance fixes.

I've turned down the chat a small bit, but if you're active chatting it shouldn't be noticeable.

I'm not 100% sure but I think it's pretty much any time the site auto refreshes in your browser to update things like chat. Now it may only happen when you refresh it yourself manually or through an action that causes the site to update.

It would refresh your Private Conversations or threads if you were watching them while someone was posting.

Awee that was like my favorite feature of this site xD like the one thing I would always put as a perk Nr.1. when comparing some other forum to BMR xD hope we can get the feature back one day :)

I do hope you can manage to fix it up. While I understand that performance issues take priority I find myself already missing that feature since I tend to leave a tab open and do other things while darting my eyes over ever-hopefully to get a reply. I mean, yeah I can refresh the page and check manually but I still miss the live content. :)

oh dang, so that's what it is. Ya, I miss it already, I keep my window open and I can see the tab on my second monitor so when I'm gaming I know when someone responded and can pause and get back to them.

As far as I can tell, it will still update as long as you're not on that thread/conversation when the response comes through. If you click back to the front page instead of remaining on that specific conversation/thread, the alert should still come up whether you have the tab active or not.

So, if I watched this thread and stayed on this thread, I wouldn't receive live updates when someone posts. If I watched this thread then clicked back to the homepage, I would get an alert if someone posts on it.

That's as far as I can tell though and Veks would need to confirm if this is correct.

The alerts will happen if you're typing a draft or whatever.

What may be cleaner is to just pare down the addon to something that singularly polls for alerts every thirty seconds or whatever.

Tentatively re-enabled for now. Hopefully will go smoothly.
