At what interval do you press on F5 or Refresh?
With things moving so fast on the forum, and not wanting to miss anything go by, at what interval do you refresh the page?
Simon should incorporate an automatic refresh every 30 seconds.
Well, that sounds good in theory and works ok if you only have a few visitors but if you get several thousand people doing that it can really eat up bandwidt hand slow things down for everyone else. It's especially bad when people just leave things on refreshing.
It's much better if people just visit the forum and read the posts, there really is no need to wait for new posts "to the second". It is a bulletin board, not a chat-room (ie. it is not intended ot be real-time live discussion)
