Warn of new post in thread

Case

Hi guys

Is there a setting or add-on to warn people that there has been a new post in a thread when I submit my post?

Seen a few examples of situations where other people have posted while I've been composing a post. When I press submit, an alert to inform me of new posts in the thread could stop me having to do a "Username beat me to it..." edit.

Thanks

Check out the Live Updates resource by Naatan and Robbo here: http://xenforo.com/community/resources/live-updates.274/

As long as you're watching the thread, and the poll interval passes while you're writing your post, you will get an alert.

Usually, new alerts are only received when an AJAX element of the page is reloaded or you move to an entirely new page. This add-on will make them happen Live.
