    Meaning it should be happening with all forums that use Xenforo then?

    I'm having a forum issue lately - is there a minimum width required for the forum display? On my laptop, when I split the screen vertically, the forum likes to freak out and 'stutter' visually (like, annoyingly so, strobe-y). Using latest chrome version, windows 10, 1920x1080 reso. :help:

    Maybe been discussed already, but the hits only option is not working.

    I tried, but I haven't been able to reproduce it, sorry.

    you keep live update on/post jump/watch thread on?

    This is a known issue since the Worker change. I believe it's being worked on by whoever is in charge of some of the extra scripts on the site.

    No idea, sorry. I'm not familiar enough with the nitty gritty of Chrome or Xenforo to answer that with any reliability.

    yes to live update, no to post jump. live update is the only thing I have checked in the thread tools thingy.

    Here's my suggestion:
    Daily threads should be restricted for contributors or registered members only. I know that some, including myself, post hits here far less often because bots just grab them the second they're posted. The hits announced should just be for, at minimum, registered members only. I don't know if that would make it more difficult for bots to grab them, but it would be better than nothing. Besides, why should people that don't even register be able to leech?

    The concern I have with this is that it probably makes those lurkers go to (and eventually join) one of the other mturk forums instead of here. iirc we tried it on MTG once and it didn't really work unless we don't care about getting new members.

    We've discussed this in the past and decided what we want to be about is being open, welcoming, and public. We don't want to hide content behind paywalls or registration walls.
