The 5 topics is perfect, 10 just means even more to scroll to see the actual board - (at least for those on lower resolutions)

Great work! :cool:

They can make 5 the default but include an expand button to set it to 10. Lets be realistic this is the web anything is possible within the design of the site. :)

Seeing a lot of server too busy messages at the moment. Load is currently 18.93 - is this the reason why?

Most likely yes, it's been spiking up ever since they brought it back online

Wondered why I was seeing this again... Now I know. I can live without minispy, but I do find I'm spending less time on Neowin because of these server issues.

Edit: Lol server. Double-post

I've disabled the mini-spy but it still shows up on /forum/index - bug?

Worth noting that I am stuck on IE6 here.

Edit* And now it is showing up everywhere. Tried changing my settings, I disable, click "Save settings" but when the page refresh. The option to Disable mini-spy is still without a check?

It's probably IE6, maybe Redmak can fix it, I'll ask.

Still happening on IE8 every now and then. Sometimes mini-spy popups other times nothing!

I agree Vice, anything is possible. However, going by the amount of errors and busy server messages - which seem to be directly connected to MiniSpy - having 10 topics shown would cause a major meltdown. :shiftyninja:

No, its more likely because they named the minispy's div ad header so your ad blocker is blocking it.

Remove it already. i don't think anyone would mind. Spy and new content are doing their job (Y)

Glad it's back up, but it would explain why Neowin has been agonizing slow for me.

Thanks for adding the permanent turn off feature, though it's not working. :(

I check the box, hit save and it says setting was saved, though the box isn't checked anymore and spy is still there. :(

Could this be related to all the server busy messages I've been getting lately?
