Updates on February 16, 2022 (Release 509)

I’m finally making steps on some more real-time interaction in the site, based on my initial efforts way back in Updates on August 11, 2021 (Release 387). I’m starting slow, since I haven’t had a lot of good luck lately. :grimacing:
Whenever an activity is synced into CityStrides, it will automatically appear on your profile page without you having to refresh the page.
I was :pinching_hand: this close to rolling out the same behavior for the progressed/completed street lists on activity pages. I realized that these updates would be rather forceful - if you’re searching/paging through any existing streets, this update would completely rewrite the page based on the newly-added streets. It’s possible that this would be fine with all of you, but I want to test things a bit first.
