    Thanks!

    I wish I had a button to thank you.

    Actually, thanks for allowing us to voice our opinions.

    Ha ha, I was thinking the same thing. This board is great because of the respectful manner in which we hold actual discussions. As we all know, polite debate is a rare thing on the internet an I'm glad we have this place. Thanks, Boss!

    I, frankly, don't get it. It seems like a forced butt-kissin'. I'd eliminate it.

    The concept is good; the execution not so much. Something more along the lines of a thumbs up option could accomplish the same thing using a lot less space -- no need to see who gave the thumbs up. I really like the thumbs up/down system BP uses on their comment feeds.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Now we've got "live topic"? Or has that been there before and I never noticed it?

    Agreed! I like seeing new features tested out. Some will be good, some won't, but it's nice to see the site continuing to evolve.

    No, it's definitely new. Perhaps it means something like "the last post was made by someone currently online," or "There has been some high number, i.e. 5 posts made in the thread in some recent time period, i.e. the last hour"

    Just a couple theories.

    Re: Thanks... But No Thanks

    It appears that if the last post was made in some very recent period, it becomes a "live topic".
    My latest theory, with a bit of research.

    From VBulletin:

    Description:
    This product is different from anything you have seen before, it raises the bar for forums. It will make your forums much more interactive, and also reduce server load.

    Technical Details:
    If a thread has been posted in X seconds then its now Live, if other users are viewing the Live topic and are on the last page they will experience a clean ajax experience while talking to other members. Once the thread is older than X seconds its no longer Live and it will now act like a normal thread. Also if a user edits one of their posts that's inside of the thread, it will be updated too so there is no longer a reason to ever have to refresh.

    There is also logic for the viewer, the viewer of the thread has to be in an active state to see responses. An active user state is determined upon the users actions, if no actions were made in X seconds then the user is marked as inactive.

    Also you may wonder why this could save your server bandwidth and CPU. If a user is refreshing to talk to another members the queries on a normal thread load are way more intense than the ajax call that this modification makes. So if you have 5 people talking to each other none of them have to refresh the page, all they are doing is simple page requests and one intense request when there has actual change.

    You can test Live Topic with two users, you will see how amaizing this is... And probably spontaneously combust.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.

    Bummer. I just saw a post I liked and wanted to "thank" someone. Guess I'll keep my opinion to myself.

    How about bringing back the rep system, with positive rep only (or no points) and only showing the incoming reps to the recipient? Nobody else needs to know that someone's post got repped.

    You don't need a button to "thank" someone.
