You should add in a simple AJAX script to refresh the top 15 every 10 seconds or so :fyi:

AJAX is basically an advanced form of Javascript. What it does is allow you to essentially refresh or update something without having to actually refresh the page. Facebook uses AJAX for the chat, and when someone posts a status it just pops up and you don't need to refresh the page. Cuts down on network traffic cause it's less work to update just a small part of a page rather than refreshing the whole thing.

You can make it so it updates when someone posts something rather than a periodic thing but I haven't played around with it enough to figure that out lol.

Rarely do I read threads on here that do not manage to be derailed at some point -- you will not be judged.
