    An annoying side effect of this is that it always returns to the first "page" when it refreshes. If I have clicked More Activity to read more posts, I have 30 seconds to do so before it refreshes and returns me to the original grouping.

    I don't know anything about BBSes these days, but is there a way to force the page to refresh whenever someone submits their post?

    Again, the webpage would need to be actively aware of forum activities in order to determine when to refresh. No such functionality was added (yet) so the best they can do would be to add a checkbox that allows you to toggle on/off the auto-refresh.

    As an alternative to the feed, send out some friend requests to the active members of the forum.

    You can see friend posts on your profile page. They're just as current as the Active Feed, but they are more persistent.



    In other words, use the Active Feed to see what new or less active members are up to recently, and use your friend list to work your way a little further back.

    I agree with @Mercy : needlessly paranoid is an oxymoron.

    The opposite of paranoia is ignorant apathy. But then, you many not know about that, or not care.

    You seem awfully knowledgeable about the subject. Is there something you are not telling us?

    While I have been enjoying the auto refresh I also find it to be annoying. I think we are a long way off from needing an update every 30 seconds. We should kick that number up to 90 seconds or more.

    I dunno, I made a webpage in 1995 and it had a lot more marquee tags than this does.
