If I remember correctly having stuff update live was done with websockets. We should bring that back and optionally have everything use it, because why not.
Have threads show who's typing, ratings as they happen, notify you if there is a new post as your reading, where users cursor is, who's making threads in subfourms, ect.
Most of these are silly but some of them would be pretty cool to have as long as it's optional and not too intrusive
The mistake I made on the old version was chasing after this shiny cool stuff too soon.
Yeah no doubt websockets will come back, and we'll find some fun stuff to do with them.. but we need to lay the foundations of the forums before we can build on them.
