real-time posts listing (all Omni posts in 1 page)
« on: April 01, 2014, 07:10:15 pm »
With the upgrade there was supposed to be a new feature where we could see all 377000 Omnimaga posts in a single page, their text/bbcode updated and parsed/displayed in real time (as people edits/removes/posts them.

Any idea when it will be available and if it will be compatible with Opera 12.16 and Internet Explorer 11?

Yes, and it will only be compatible with IE5 sorry.
Joking aside, a realtime feed where you can see what is happening is a cool idea. I might design something with together.js and polling the database for recent activity to allow something similar-ish.

Isn't this something Omni used to have?
At least I wondered where it went when I checked back after a long time of not coming on here.

I sure hope not. The resources required for that would be massive. Post data is 300MB+ before parsing as is.

Actually those little bubbles that appeared on the page side right after the upgrade were a nice touch, especially for those who had Omnom disabled. However I don't know if their issues were fixable. >.<

I doubt it, unless someone donated $2 millions a month to Eeems to cover bandwidth costs.

Plus you'd have to have a computer that could handle it. And server load would be high.

I'm going to re-work the notifications eventually.

I meant a realtime feed on the home page, not a constant update on 377000 posts :P

Btw this suggestion was april fools material too. In no way this is even close to realistic. :P

A much lower scale real-time feed would be fun, though.

There was no real time feed (Unless you count The posts bot on OmnomIRC, which we still have). There was a little recent posts widget though.

Righty, that widget, it must come back, according to me at least.

Yeah, the issue is that it caused page views to skyrocket, so for example one day there were 250000 views, when in fact it was 25000-50000 or so. I think that widget is also why people had troubles logging in too (too many login attempts due to the widget reloading pages multiple times).

The widget didn't reload automatically.
