Mefites use a bunch of userscripts, stylesheets, and bookmarklets to customize the site, but we don't have a place to collaboratively maintain them. What if we had a shared Github organization where authors could contribute their scripts for community maintenance? I've put one up over at github.com/mefiscripts/mefiscripts, and if folks think it's a good idea I'd love to have you join. [more inside]
It seems that http://userscripts.org has been down for an extended period of time, although the site is currently available on an alternate port ( http://userscripts.org:8080/ ). I would like to suggest if you maintain scripts there, that you make them available at another location (perhaps the mefi wiki?) out of an abundance of caution.
Pony request! The threadwin extension is very useful. I would like it to play well with AskMe & MetaTalk. [more inside]
rangefinder 1.4 has created the most amazing script ever. It draws rainbow & fluffy cloud borders around your comments in recent activity. It's making me so happy, you guys. [more inside]
Just in case any other MeFi chatters want to use it, I've made a modified version of the userstyle that pb offered in the recent Chat Update MeTa. It turns off the sidebar in the MeFi chat web client. [more inside]
I've been happily using Plutor's "Deleted Posts" script in Chrome (v. 29.0.1547.76) on my Mac Airbook, but yesterday it stopped working. It was fine on Sunday, and I haven't updated Chrome or the script. I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling the script, and confirming that I'm using the latest one (according to userscripts.org I am). Is anyone else having this problem, or am I simply cursed?
I'm enjoying shakespeherian's choose your own adventures, on Google Plus, but found it hard to follow just which Real Names belong to more familiar pseudonyms. So, I wrote a simple a userscript which could help. [more inside]
Is there a userscript that can change the font of arbitrary users' comments/posts?
Calling all scientists and scientist-lovers! Do you like knowing when a comment you're reading on MeFi was written by a Person of Science? Well, have I got a greasemonkey script for you. [more inside]
Which Greasemonkey script shows comment numbers for each comment in a thread? [more inside]
I've created a new user script. It puts the long-standing tradition of suggesting ridiculous taglines for Metafilter to work. Introducing mefitaglines (or here, if userscripts.org is slow) and celebrating Metafilter user scripts in general. A special thanks to plutor for his indispensable scripts and for inspiring me to make my own.
With Safari 5 supporting extensions that are very similar to greasemonkey scripts, I'm wondering if any existing MeFi-related scripts have been/are being ported over.
