Just a small annoyance that always catches me out. I'll often have Geekzone open up on one of my screens (multi monitor setup) on the homepage. I'll see a topic however when I "click" the topic I get something I often don't want to go into.


For example - take the below screenshot. I wanted to look at the FibreX topic and instead I end up potentially buying a server I don't need since the window goes back into focus and the discussions frame bumps up almost exactly one topic (line to show clicking area):



Is there any way I can potentially turn this off or if we can maybe start using websockets to keep it updated?

Ahh that explains it. Couldn't do something like appending (Paused) to the end of the Discussions title to stop the discussion box moving or even have it so you can click a link to disable the in focus script for xx minutes on Geekzone Live or the homepage?

If you want something more specific than "(Paused)", is it possible to replace the default "this updates every 60 seconds" message with the "paused" one so that they both use the same space and therefore don't cause the list to jump around?
