    Hey guys,

    I've been messing around with this for a while. It's a firefox extension that I've been calling "BIT List". BIT stands for "Buddies In Thread".

    With this extension enabled, buddies that are on your BIT list will be visible under the thread that they are currently viewing. For example:

    I add BLoG to my BIT list:

    Now, when I browse a forum that he is also viewing, I can see which thread he is in (In this case, the buddy is Irom):

    It still needs some work, but I thought you guys might be interested. If you would like to try it out, shoot me a msg. I'll make another thread once I complete some more features :).

    Nice. You should pass this into the main forum, if you haven't already.

    pretty cool, but it will probably destroy a forum that's using mediocre hardware.

    Stepping through the logic in my head that's a lot of calls to a person's status page...

    For a forum like OT its not bad. Calls are also made independently and are dynamically stored in an array so there is no waiting for returns, updates do not necessarily come back in order.

    I'll try to get up a better version later this week, for now if anybody wants the basic Add buddy / view from the screens above (no remove buddy or list of all), PM me and I'll send over the beta.
