DrossFilter - brute force thread cleanser

As a bit of a brain saver I've made a GreaseMonkey script that hides every comment in a discussion on mefi that has less than 5 favourites. [more inside]

Open All Nite!

Mass deletions? 79140, 79144, 79147 and 79149 are all showing as having been deleted but none of them are closed for comments or given a reason for closure. Is my Greasemonkey broken or is your Blue broken?

On MeFi, everyone knows you're dog.

Greasemonkey: here's a script that displays profile pics next to posts. Cortex warned me some people will hate it and want to roast me alive. To those people, let me suggest a side dish of Potatoes au Gratin and a glass of Merlot. [more inside]

Mefi Music Standalone Player Script

Deleted questions are showing up in intermittent fashion, and that is shaking me to my core. Won't you help?

Does the Mefi Navigator Greasemonkey script work in Opera?

Does the Mefi Navigator Greasemonkey script work in Opera? I followed the instructions on this page and put the script (with the original name) in my userjs folder, but nothing happens. I checked that the correct userjs folder is specified in my site preferences. Does it work for anybody else?

Best of MeFi / 'Comment Dividers' Error

Two things (and yes, I'm cheating). First, I'm wondering if there's any mechanism out there that allows us to look at a "best of" for Mefi and Ask Mefi. Popular favorites in the last 24 hours immediately leaps to mind, and would indeed be ideal, but I'm looking for an RSS feed, and Mathowie says that's a no-go in past MeTas. (Any chance we could change your mind, Matt?) I hear there used to be a third-party blog that did it, but I don't think that's around any longer. Perhaps the sidebar feed ... at least for Mefi? Still, the sidebar is like a "best of best of Mefi." Second, and on an entirely different subject, when the MeFi comment dividers Greasemonkey script is used, it throws off permalinks to comments ... if you click on a comment permalink somewhere else (i.e. a Recent Activity page or a Favorites page), you're at first dropped at the anchor for the comment on the page, but when the comment dividers are applied, it bounces away. Anyone have an idea how that effect might be avoided? I'm more of a idiot-splicer than a programmer, so I really have no idea how to change that script to avoid the effect. Thanks in advance for any advice or answers on both questions ...

WCityMike's Kumquat Rant

Comment Dividers

Based on Gina Trapani's Lifehacker Blackener Greasemonkey script -- which she released into the public domain -- I made up a Greasemonkey script that puts a dividing line in-between Metafilter comments.

MetaFilthy hates me

Anyone else getting hit with constant error alerts when using MetaFilthy? I have an "NS_ERR_DOM_INDEX_SIZE_ERR" alert popping up on every thread in FireFox 2.0.0.2, for about the last week or so. (Yes, I reported a bug to the author. Yes, I know he doesn't spend all day every day coding MetaFilthy. I'm just wondering if this is an issue with just me, with a Metafilter re-code of some sort, or problems between MetaFilthy and FF 2.0.0.2.)

Greasemonkey or Mefi Bug?

Not sure if this has been an issue for others but.. I'm using the Greasemonkey script for MeFi quotes and every time I click it, it brings me to a blank page. I've updated all the MeFi greasemonkey scripts and I'm on FF 2.0.0.1. Any ideas?

MeFi Navigator Greasemonkey script is useful

Contemplating the FeaturePony: The MeFi Navigator Greasemonkey script is frakkin' insanely useful, if only for the 'poster' and 'admin' tags (I don't use the comment navigation stuff that much). Wouldn't Safari and IE users praise the ground mathowie walks on if it got built into the system itself?

Mark your contacts

Highlighting contacts? Would it be possible to highlight the name of anyone you have listed in your contacts? Nothing flashy, just something to draw attention to the poster's name if you are skimming a long thread.

Greasemonkey script that highlights "heavy links"

I run a Greasemonkey script that highlights "heavy links" - links such a Youtube or .mov that might take a while to download.

Should this script action be incorporated into the meta universe?

Proper etiquitte is to flag such heavy links but if you Firefox users install this script and say look at posts tagged with video, you will see many examples of posters who bother to tag their posts but don't flag their links. Then there are many who don’t tag or flag.

Even if you don't support such highlighting at the site (It will just make people lazy), how are my filters? What else do I need to include? [jeez, trying to get the below to display properly was very trying]
HeavyExtensions = ['swf', 'ram', 'rm', 'wmv', 'asx', 'mov', 'pdf', 'mp3', 'mpg', 'mpeg', 'wav'];
HeavyURLs = [
/youtube.com\/.*\?v=/,
/video.google.com\/videoplay/,
/video.google.com\/googleplayer.swf/,
/collegehumor.com\/movies\/.*\//,
]

GreaseMonkey script: Show Comments

GreaseMonkey script: Show Comments

Users often reference other user's comments (example). If you're as lazy as I am you don't like clicking back to see what the original comment was. This script displays the original comment inline. Screenshot inside.

Is there a way to jump from one comment to the next using my keyboard?

Is there a way to jump from one comment (anchor) to the next using my keyboard? I like a feature in Bloglines where you can simply press "j" to go to the next article in a feed ("k" goes to the previous article). It would be nice if we had a navigation system similar to this going from comment to comment for MeFi/AskMe/MeTa threads.

Greasemonkey Consistency

Question about deleted threads (not one I created or want to whine about though, I promise!).

I've got a greasemonkey script that shows links to the deleted posts in the style of (for example) "Deleted thread: 48604". Most of these links are valid and show the threads, but some go to a page that says the thread was deleted. Why the two different results?

Greasemonkey Killfile

Here's a little Greasemonkey script that filters out posts by any users you don't want to read on Metafilter (if you use Firefox).

If you want to use it, download Greasemonkey and restart your Firefox if you haven't already. Then click on the first link and then the Greasemonkey install button on the top right hand corner.

By default, it only filters on single Mefi article pages, not on preview or on Metatalk, but you could easily change the Included Pages. By default, it filters out ParisParamus and dios as users but you could very easily download this to your local drive and edit it -- or I'd put up any other variations that were useful (or even come up with a way for you to edit preferences from the program).

This was fun. Was it a good idea? Discuss.

Greasemonkey Killfile

Since some users previously indicated an interest in the capability, I've made available a Greasemonkey script which allows users to either highlight or filter out posts on Metafilter and its site siblings, based on conditional matching of text strings or patterns (author or content). Use it as-is or extend/morph the code for your own projects. Caveats apply: 1) this is very much a limited-test release 1.0 script and 2) though a professional coder, my eye for design elements ranges from mediocre to bad. To forestall the hypervigilant, this is a self-link and a pointer post was OK'd by Matt Haughey.

Greasemonkey Killfile Script

you finally got me pissed off enough to install GreaseMonkey and the kill file so I'll never have to read another one of your trollish comments.

When a poster replies to his own post, would it be possible to mark it as such?

A suggestion to improve Metafilter: When a poster replies to his own post, would it be possible to mark it as such, such as starting out the post with "Poster: ", or maybe each poster could do this manually to make the thread more readable. Just an idea.

Anonymous for a day

I've written a Greasemonkey script that does pretty much what leftcoastbob suggested here.

It adds a few refinements: the replacement name is "Poster" for the Poster and "Comment N" for commenters, where N is the number of their first comment in the currently viewed thread, so if the same commenter posts more than once in the thread, all his comments have the same replacement name.

Greasemonkey script displays picture next to username

Ever wondered wonder what that user looks like? I've written a quick greasemonkey script that adds photos of users next to their usernames. Photos were gleaned from meetup pictures and there are currently about 75 photos in the database (Firefox only).

If you do not have Greasemonkey, you can install the script by clicking here. If you have Greasemonkey, right click here and hit "Install User Script".

I'd like to know what you guys think.
