After a lot of troubleshooting and rewriting of code, the Live Topic feature is now working again.

If you view a thread where a post has been made within the last 15 minutes, and while you are viewing it someone makes a new post to the thread -- you'll automatically see the new post. It will show up under the newest post with a little note saying it was a "Live Topic update".

This makes quick back-n-forth posts between users very easy, you never have to leave the page or refresh.

A few things to know:

- When you view the thread, the last post must be made within 15 minutes. If the last post is older than 15 minutes, you won't poll the server for new posts -- so even if someone makes one, you won't see it. This is to save server resources.

- If you leave a thread up for over 15 minutes and no one posts to the thread, same as above -- it will stop polling the server for new posts, so even if someone makes a new post you won't see it unless you manually refresh.

Basically this is for quick back and forth posting within an active topic.


Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
