I'm not the best person to answer this because I don't know all the fancy tech terms.

Here goes:

iSpy is dynamic. Someone makes a post, it automatically appears in the scroll.

New post is static. You have to do the refreshing instead of the site.

Derek The shout box is a feature of the Portal program the web admin is using to host the page. As far as I can see, the site you saw it uses UBB Threads which is completely different from what we have here.

I couldn't agree more that it'd be a great addition, I just don't see it technically possible. On the other hand, I never thought it would be technically possible to drive the same car for 1.000.000 miles, and AGAIN I was proven wrong!

And yeah, aireeca is right. The iSpy feature is really cool!

Marks9-3 Might be cool but can easily see this getting luca'd and turning to crap.

New Feature question/suggestion...

I was perusing a different forum and noticed a cool feature called a "Shout Box."

http://www.snipershide.com/forum/ubb...Number=1016654 (located on the right side of the thread text area)

I think this is a cool way for forum members to interact on a more immediate level than posting threads/topics. I figure it would be more wise to limit the characters to something small and Twitter-like; e.g. 120 characters or less.

What say you all?
