About a week ago the New Topics (live headlines) function had a problem. This problem got fixed, but something changed. Before, the site was refreshed without reloading the whole page, the threads were visible all the time. Now, the site refreshes by reloading the page, for about 1-2 seconds all the threads are gone and only blank page is visible. It is quite annoying, when i am reading the headlines at that moment, or trying to open a thread by clicking on it.
Could it be changed ? Like it was before, without the reload/blank thing ?

Funnily enough I noticed this too. Maybe the wrong thing got changed or perhaps it has to do with the new live trending feature? Maybe a Mod knows.
ETA Although maybe for them to notice it, this might better have been placed in Board Questions?

They get more page views and more ads by reloading the page every x minutes. Most people would open ATS live page as a new tab and spend the whole day like that, so now as this is they get more page views. That's what I assume is happening, but I'm not sure.

It's even worse in Chrome - for some reason the firehose is spewing out a fifo stack horizontally across the screen at times - then it could refresh into the columnar-by time format. As a habitual firehose drinker, I am finding this behavior less-than-satisfactory because I can't get the entire screen without the rescrambling. Doesn't always happen but it was hell over the past week!
