I find it quite annoying that I have to constantly refresh the page to get updates. I would love to see live updates for this site, though I can see why this could cause issues

This would definitely be an issue. I generally prefer sites that don’t live update as my phone runs on limited high speed data, and then slows down after that. I feel that this would cause data to drain quickly and that would cause an issue for members without a computer. Some people access this website solely from a phone or other mobile device.

This may also be difficult to implement as this site is old in terms of code.

I mean, there could also be the option to turn off live updates

I have edited my previous post to add some more on. There could be an option, but I feel this feature would be difficult to code. I’m not an expert developer by any means, but coding in general is complicated. This site is being completely rewritten at the moment because of the current code being so old.

Right, coding is very complicated. I'm no professional either, I am still a student in that field. But I'm just putting out an idea, maybe not for right now, and likely not a short project either. Just an idea

What came to my mind was something similar to twitter, perhaps a “click here to see new replies”? I like this idea but seeing as the main focus is the rewrite, it’d have to be a 2.0 thing. I’m no Dev so I’ll let them speak on if this would even be possible.

One feature that imageboards usually use is an update button. Each time you click the button the page updates and next to the button there's a check box labeled "auto," that, when checked, automatically updates the page every ten seconds.

It'd imagine the Devs are working on implementing some kind of Ajax technology. Shortly before karrott was a Dev here, about seven years ago, he had been working on a project similar to ACC 2.0. He was redoing marioforums.net, which was pretty much a Mario-oriented ACC, and he was looking into ways of modernizing it. The project was never finished but one of the big things he wanted to do was make parts of the site more instant. It wouldn't surprise me if some of his ideas carried over to ACC when he was on the Staff here.

Yeah, this was floated around a few years ago. We eventually concluded that, because it (and similar features like push notifications) would need some pretty major restructuring to make it possible, it would be best left to ACC 2.0.

But yes, it's definitely something we want to do at some point - either have replies automatically appear on the page, or have a button to click that will load new replies.

Will there be an option to turn off the live notifications? I like to conserve my high speed data.

Don't see why not.
