    it would be nice to have an auto refresh feature, which reloads the
    current page every n secs.
    preferrably customizable in the users preferences.

    Get Firefox.
    Load the following add-on:
    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/115

    Be careful - The add on reloads the page regardless of what you're doing - you need to turn it off to prevent a page reload just before you hit the submit button etc.

    Good idea, all that clicking of a mouse is strenuous. 😕

    Whenever a move is made, I get a mail from RHP. My mailer program pings and I know that something has happened. That's enough for me, and it gives me exactly what you're looking for.

    If every member (thousands, tens or maybe even 100 thousand members) have an automatic refresh, that will burden the sustem in that extent so Russ et al would need to double or tripple his computer strength, followed with yet higher subscription fee.

    I say - use the mailers ping to alert you.
