    I just added a photo as my avatar and when I clicked "yes" to accept the photo and then went back to the main page, there is a new thing in the blue header called "Spy". Is this just a coincidence?

    Have I done something wrong, and what is "Spy"?. The explanation when I click on it isn't very clear to me.

    It's a new feature I'm trialling (the timing of it appearing is just a coincidence - I only just installed it).

    It just gives you a running commentary of new things happening on the site. Not sure whether I'll keep it or not.

    Wylie - it's a real time version of "new posts", basically - you can just leave the "Spy" page open and it updates to show you new posts without you having to even refresh the page.

    Phew! Just bad timing. I thought I'd somehow changed the world as we know it by uploading a photo :p.

    And I'm keeping an eye on you too D.T. :D

    God no. Please remove it!

    I'll just end up staring at it all day, waiting for something to happen.

    I've decided to disable this for now - will need to customise it from the default behaviour so I can adjust the name and where the link appears.

    It's on the TODO list :rolleyes:

    Haha felt a little bit weird when I read spy, wasn't even game to click the link.

    Live sounds much more appealing.

    I didn't see any by you in Spy, I was joking as you have 330 or so posts which probably makes you #1 poster on Property Chat

    Ha, click on it, a person drying themselves in the bathroom appears, looks up and quickly covers up "Spy!".
