    What is Live TOPIC? Click, box lights up, then what?
    NS should not require warm up exercises. We get enough exercise jumping to conclusions, flying off the handle, running down our bosses,knifing friends in the back, dodging responsibility and pushing our luck.

    Hard to explain, but here goes.

    Live Topic is a modification I added on. What it does is it keeps a topic 'live' as long as there are users actively posting on it. By 'Live' I mean that the topic will keep adding replies as they are typed in to a thread. If you are reading a thread and someone types a reply on a live topic, then it will appear on your screen without you having to refresh your browser.

    When you see a 'Live Topic' icon next to a thread, it means that users are actively posting to that topic - at least within the last 300 seconds.

    Here is a video demonstration:

      love the "live topic" note. I just guessed it was an indicator that the thread was live with multiple posts. Did not know it went into instant post mode.
