Something changed, i can use the New Topic function, where the new threads are updated in real-time. But after about 5 minutes, it changes to a different page automatically. Up comes the index page, with a video and the "Current Member Picks". Is ATS working on the site atm ?

I confirm also.
There is something going on with the live page.

I've noticed where it's redirecting to another page.

And the headlines at the top are terrible.

Seems like the automated update is going wonky.

Made some changes. All should be normalized now.

The firehose page now just shows the most recent 90 new threads, in an easier to follow horizontal format.

And with the latest thread being only 7hours old on this 'new and improved' firehose......What about those who work 8 hours a day or more who relied on knowing the Firehose would provide them with at the latest 12-16hours of New Topics.....Much information to be gained will now go more unnoticed because only the last 7 hours is shown. I don't like it, the change is terrible IMHO

Why is there an ad on the new topics page??
Shouldn't the ads be at the very top and not in the current location?
I understand you need to run your site but as a member,less ads are good,coming from a guy who doesn't use ad blockers when I come here which is (lightly) against the t & c.

I support the site regardless...just asking.

I see that too and it is seriously pissing me off.


I thought it might have been just me and/or a glitch but I suppose not.

The ads are still there just waiting to be accidently moused on.

So far, I hate it.
Plus the damn thing keeps refreshing, so I can't even read it properly.

Also, we only get to see the last 7 hours now, not the last 12.

Not easier.

Seriously, if its going to refresh so often, make it refresh faster. I have another tab open to firehose, now the page writing is like a picasso painting, its all over the place
It refreshes everytime I try to move it to read upwards

omg, I'm going to need therapy soon.....

I'm going to assume that it isn't near finished yet?

I have the firehose set as my home page. When I opened my browser, I was like



Then I was like



Oh, well. I guess I'll get used to it.

Agreed! this is atrocious! There will be more missed threads now!


My favorite part of the site wrecked. Perhaps its time to join up with the "Other" Forum after all.
so sad.
