    Default Meritt's ForumWatch -- Beta!

    As these forums are growing quite rapidly, keeping up with the flow of new posts can be daunting. Therefore I am in the process of creating a utility to help enhance your forum experience.

    Features [Version 0.1]
    • Real-time streaming of forum posts
    • Hover over the left-side to pause the stream if you need a moment to read
    • Click the post container and all posts from that thread will be moved to the right
    • Click the thread title to go directly to that post on the forums, in a new tab

    I'm looking for general feedback, suggestions, features/ideas and simply if you guys think this will be a useful utility. This is still very early so it might be quite bug laden

    http://forumwatch.riftideas.com/

    Enjoy!

    So much nicer than "New posts" and "Mark Forum Read" =)

    Here's a suggestion: Allow us to right click a thread to put it on the side and stream only THAT thread. Dunno how possible that is, but might be nice.

    If you left-click a thread, the box, it moves it over there. All posts for that thread *should* go over there.

    My next idea was to allow you to stream just threads you pick (exclude all but specified) or additionally press like a "ignore thread" button and you wont see updates for that thread (like that Gazaelle mount one? Yeah. Wish I had an ignore button during testing earlier tonight :P)
