    One of my biggest grips with the forum spy is the inability to pause it. Many times I find an interesting thread and as soon I try to click it, it moves downwards resulting in me clicking on another thread :eek: .

    Digg spy has a play/pause button (at the top left), which makes it easier to pause the updates. It would greatly improve the usability of the spy if we can get a similar feature. Thanks :)

    I concur.

    I lose count of how many times I go to view a thread and it jumps.

    I guess it's part of vBulletin so will get updated by them one day.

    Would be useful, sometimes I move my cursor down one spot and wait for it to move for me before I click, pre-empting the inevitable.

    Yep I'm sick of it just jumping down just before I'm about to click a link :p

    The Forum Spy is not part of vBulletin. MacRumors developed the code and will consider this idea.
