I do a similar thing, except I use the Tab Mix Plus extension instead. It's like ReloadEvery, but it's got extra bells and whistles.

For those of you wishing to use ReloadEvery you can find it here:

Could we possibly have a thingy which autoforwards PMs to a given mailbox?

That would be handy!

Sorry to keep requesting things but how about second opinions showing in first look.

How about enhanced forum stats?

I would be interested in a page which said who the top 10 posters of the week, month year and all time were.

I'll add somthing to the spreadsheet!

I'm working on this as part of the new DaddyFacts page. That info is technically possible to retreive from the data but it's some heftly processing. Should be fine but it may give the server some issues.

What does anyone think to having the list of users onling also on the first look page so it will properly work as an alternative front page?

That sounds like a great idea to me!

Also something I was wondering, but haven't checked. Do 2nd opinions count to post count, and should they?

Also it would be cool if you could do second opinions in First Look as I use the forum pretty much exclusively though that page. [Edit] Arse already asked for that!

And it is done

They didn't, but now they do

Aha I think I misunderstood you when you asked for this before. The first look page does show second opinions but they currently aren't factored in to the maths when calculating the most recent posts, only the original review is. It's been on my list to sort this for a while but it's some scary scary SQL. Will attack it further.

Also should we show more posts in the first look? Currently it's set at 15

Excellent work Spanners!

As usual you da man

Hmm an intersting question.

Sometimes if I've been away, or it's a busy day then there is more than a page of First Look to view and I have to hunt for posts I've missed.
that said upping the number of posts will make it slower to load (And I tend to use Tab Mix to make it refresh every 5 minutes)
Perhaps we should have 2 pages of first look for people who want to look back a bit further.

I'm happy to go with the consensus on this one.

Done!
There is now a thing on everybody's profile labelled 'Email PMs' (defaulted to on) that fires a script which emails your private messages directly to you.

Obviously this will only work for members who keep their email address up to date on their profile. Also I realise that there are many who have put in false emails to 'avoid spam'. Don't worry, we're good people here!
I will again stress that your emails cannot be accessed by non-registered users. At all. Don't believe me? Try logging out and search the Forum for anyone's email, you'll not find one.

Just thought, if First Look is becoming an alternative front page (and I've got to admit I use it as such) would it be possible to have a 'start new thread' link on it? I'd imagine it would need to open an alert of some description so you could select which board you wanted the new post to go on (might make a little bit more sense than a dropdown on the main page) but it could be an idea...

Or failing that, how about just a dropdown box so you could quickly move to a board of your choice?

Yay, finally sorted this one! Suprisingly tricky!

Sorted this too, in the form of a dropdown box, seemed like the most straightforward way to go

halloo

i was posting a new thread in the swapshop forum earlier and none of the thread tags seemed appropriate.

how about some swapshop specific tags such as 'freebie', 'swap' etc?

cheers

Sounds good. Malcolm is the guy that makes the tags so you need to ask him very nicely!

I'm thinking it would be cool if there was an alternative RSS feed that gave the complete text of a post.
This would mean I could use google reaer as a kind of alternative first look type of thing.
I've stuck an entry on the spreadsheet.
