For quite a while now @Coon and I have been planning a better experience for live discussion threads. Actually, this feature has been planned since MyBB, but since Xenforo had its own live discussion feature this sort of got delayed. However, the current live discussion add-on isn't perfect, so since then Coon has started working on it again. The feature is called "Compact Live Thread", but I'll just be calling it "Compact". The feature itself isn't an add-on as such; it's a slimmed down interface on top of the current live thread feature. Compact is going to be much more smooth and much easier to read. You'll be able to see a lot more posts without scrolling continuously. The reason for that is because it's slimmed down and unnecessary information like avatars, post count, etc., is removed. The feature is currently in BETA mode so there will be a thread soon where users can report issues, bugs, and all that stuff, but it should be able to be in usage for tonight. If you dislike the feature, please don't rant about it and cause havoc, because you can simply "X" out of it and discuss the show like you usually would; you're not forced to use this. Screenshots and stuff: When you enter a thread that is live, you'll see a small expander button at the top left of the screen. Once you click that, the Compact application will appear which looks like this: As you can see in this screenshot, the Compact application almost acts like a Skype chat. It's so easy to discuss the show without any unnecessary information or lag. Furthermore, you'll notice the "X" at the top left of that screenshot, that's what you click if you want to go back to using the default live discussion add-on (the one you've been using for months). The "mc" at the top right is the thread title (we so happened to test this in a thread called mc). PLEASE REMEMBER that this is still in development. As we speak, we're adding likes to the Compact application so you can continue to like people's posts. Quoting people's posts will be added in due course as well. In fact, here is a picture of what is planned for Compact: All messages entered into Compact will be archived like usual, so for those who like to look back through discussion threads for reactions and what not, don't be alarmed. NOTE: Please remember that this application has been almost exclusively tested in Google Chrome, so using that browser will definitely give you the best usage experience. As I said earlier, there will be a thread soon where you can report bugs, so please report any that may appear on Firefox (or whatever hipster browser you use [not internet explorer, FU if you use that]) in that thread. Finally, a test thread will be made soon where you guys can go test this yourself. We'll be making that after likes have been added, so people aren't using it while development is continuing. Please keep this thread clean with useful posts as I'll be checking it a lot to answer questions and such.
