    If any of you frequent a certain large Apple rumor site, you are most likely aware that instead of a "New Posts" search, there is an auto-updating "Forum Spy" button that spits out new posts without the need for repeated user input. Both forums utilize vBulletin software, so I assume such a feature COULD be implemented here. This isn't a huge deal, obviously, and I am just inquiring about its feasibility and if bgizzle has given it any thought.

    EDIT: Sorry, this should be in "Feedback and Suggestions"

    I posted about his a while back. Almost 6 months. I never really got a definite answer from bgizzle or any of the mods.

    I think that this would be a great addition, and you could help out quicker and easier.

    What sets this apart from the 'New Posts' button? The fact that you can customize your new post searches?

    Think of it has a continuous stream of new posts. No need to keep clicking New Posts. Anytime a thread gets a new post it pops up to the top of the list automatically.
