All,

I've rewritten the killfile script to improve performance (should be much faster) and make configuration easier.

Russ, if you want to add your few hundred names back to stress test it, have at it!

Changes:

* Uses Xpath rather than looping through the DOM to select the elements containing screen names (much faster)

* Doesn't run on non-forum pages at Supertopo

* You only need to add screen names now, not screen name and screen ID (no more searching for the user id strings)

This week is pretty busy for me, but I plan to continue to make additions. Here are some planned additions:

* Store the blocked users using Greasemonkey's internal data store and add some UI elements to the Supertopo forum pages to allow you to block users without editing the script ("block user" links)

* Add the ability to block threads (using Greasemonkey's internal data store as above)

This is version 1, so there may be bugs, but I've tested it pretty well. If you find any bugs or have suggestions for improvement, drop me a line or add an issue at the project tracker on bitbucket.

You can download the script here.


I've put some installation and configuration instructions up on the project wiki.


As always, no warranty implied. Greasemonkey scripts can do naughty things, so install at your own risk and don't come crying to me if it makes off with all your blue Camalots ;-)

Note: skip to the end of this thread for updates

Enjoy,

-S

Thanks! If one uses this to block a user, will it also automatically block any thread started by that person? Or must that be done separately?

If you add a user to the killfile list, it will remove any threads started by that user (just like the previous script did.) I thought I'd add block thread functionality just in case there are threads you'd rather not see started by authors you rather not block.

Wow! Thanks Steve! Adding the UI elements, so people don't need to edit the script, would be a big plus. Not sure why, but getting the script working properly has been difficult for several people I've heard from.

You are bringing peace and detente to the Taco. Am looking forward to further versions.

Crimpergirl,

No worries, bitbucket is designed for geeks ;-)

Go to the downloads page:

https://bitbucket.org/steveax/supertopo-killfile/downloads

And under "Tags & snapshots" you'll see a table (Tag, Download, etc.)

You want the "zip" link in the "tip" row:

https://bitbucket.org/steveax/supertopo-killfile/get/tip.zip

This is a zip archive that contains the latest version.

Unzip that and in the resulting folder will be the script.

From there, the instructions should get you going:

https://bitbucket.org/steveax/supertopo-killfile/wiki/Home

but feel free to ping me if you have any trouble.

I'm running 5.0 if that helps. I tried it twice: first dropping on the tab, then dropping it in the window. Nothing both times. I mean other than the script pasting into the window, that is.

HFCS,

I just tried with a clean install of Firefox 5.0.1 on both Mac and Windows and the install worked fine.

Are you on Windows?

If so, I wonder if the standard way Windows treats zip archives (showing them in the Windows Explorer without extracting the file) is the hitch.

Try this:

2-click the zip archive you downloaded. This should open the archive up in the Windows Explorer (assuming you don't have Winzip or the like installed).

Then drag the supertopo_killfile.user.js script from that window to the Desktop and then use the file you dropped on the desktop to drag into the Firefox tab.

Does that do the trick?

HFCS,

I'm at a loss. If you really did extract the file from the Winrar window, and then dragged the extracted file to an empty window, I don't know what could be preventing the install. You do have the Greasemonkey extension installed, yes?

I grabbed the latest and put it here:

http://pangram.org/misc/supertopo_killfile.user.js

Try that direct link and let me know what happens.

@H
Is it possible to isolate someone from adding "comments" to a topic I create?

Just to be clear what the script does (and doesn't do)...

This doesn't change anything on the Supertopo server. Much like a unsenet client killfile, it merely removes things you don't want to see from your view. Users that you've blocked will be able to do anything they normally would, post to your threads, etc., you just won't see them.

@nature

The script will work fine in Chrome, but I'm not sure if there's a mechanism to edit the script once it's installed so you'll want to add the users you want to block before dragging it to an empty Chrome window. Open it up in a text editor (Wordpad should work fine on Windows) and add the usernames you wish to block, save the file, then drag to Chrome. Chrome will ask you to confirm the installation of an "Extension". Allow that and it will be installed. The catch is if you want to add more users, you'll have to uninstall from Chrome, edit the file and then install again. When I add the ui bits to allow blocking users from the forum pages, it'll be less of a hassle in Chrome.

sully- u shud know how little I care who reads my posts, or what they tjink of them. they are usually directed to an individual, not a crowd, so why be outraged at someone else's conversation.

In this case, it's just a bunch of people censoring their own lives, maybe in the same way that the majority of this country ignores our not insignificant social problems.

"Hey, as long as I'm all set, f*#k the rest of the them"

Or "that harshes my life buzz so it shouldn't exist".

Censorship of your own life is like strapping a pair of horse blnders on your head.

I did some testing and discovered the solution to getting the script to install is to have Greasemonkey enabled. Make sure the check mark shows under Tools -> Greasemonkey,:


Pate, for me the script is a more elegant solution than "not reading someone's posts". Seems like you have a lot of energy invested in commenting on this :)

OK, thanks to Malemute, I finally added UI to the script so you can block users from the browser (no more editing of the script to add users).

If you used the previous version, you'll have to re-block users that were in the script before, but it should be pretty quick to do now.

Updated instructions can be found here:

https://bitbucket.org/steveax/supertopo-killfile/wiki/Home

I have only tested in Firefox v15 and v16 with Greasemonkey 1.3. I think there were some folks using this in Chrome too, so if they could test that'd be groovy.

If person A knew that person B did not want to listen or hear person A, then why would person A attempt to talk to person B conversationally? What is the point.

A killfile seems to provide a solution to avoid that problem. It seems to serve both people.

Just updated the script, the major new feature is thread blocking:



Blocking a thread only blocks that thread, not any other threads created by that author.

Blocked threads and authors are now stored in HTML5 local storage which is now the recommended practice for userscript preferences. This means that any kill filed authors will have to be re-added. Sorry about that, but this should be the last change in that department.

In addition, the script is now versioned so Greasemonkey should pick up new versions automatically from here on out.

I also injected some styles into the thread pages that prevent extra-large images, long urls, or 500 exclamation points in a row from blowing out the pages.

Main forum index page now gets "re-striped" after killed threads are removed so that there's always alternating row colors.

Note that since I switched to using HTML5 localstorage for saving the killfiled users/threads so the previous instructions about clearing the killfile are obsolete. I'll put some new instructions for that up on the wiki later. If you have a need to do that before I manage to update the instructions, drop me a line and I'll walk you through it.

Instructions here, and you can install the latest version directly from this link.

If you find any bugs or have suggestions, drop me a PM here or create an issue at bitbucket. Code contributions always welcome - create a pull request.

Anybody who downloads this should think about why they are such pussies, and can't function in society.

I downloaded the killfile; but I don't think of myself as a "pussy". I think of myself as someone who doesn't like to read trash or someone who doesn't want to see the same old dead horse beaten to death with photoshop.

Ironically I use for the same reason you say not to use it biotech, to block those who seemingly don't function well in society or at the very least this society.

It is no different than muting the television during commercials; except you don't have to hit the mute button.

Anyone who is against the ability to block trolls is most likely a troll, and thus gets blocked.

Works only with Firefox?

Then can I block myself for a specific period of time?

Should work as well in Google Chrome, but I have not tested it.

I added some the instructions to the wiki to view/edit the stored killfile values.

[16:12:37.821] ReferenceError: localstorage is not defined

Also did a reboot due to something else entirely and lost the previously marked thread filter. Had to go back and re-add them. Clearly this setup is more finicky to user settings etc.

DMT,

You did have a supertopo page open in the front-most window-tab when you did that (Firefox console?), yes?

Those versions are current (Firefox has a 16.1 version out but that shouldn't matter). The only way local storage should be undefined is if there really are no values stored for the domain and I'm at a loss as to why they wouldn't store properly. You might try re-installing the latest version of the script an the restarting Firefox. Send me an email directly if that still doesn't work.

It is a bit more complicated now but the payoff is being able to update the script without having to re-enter the kill file values every time there's an update.

Wow - this thing is great. I hadn't tried it before, but I'm finally switching to Firefox as my primary browser. It took me two minutes to install and two clicks to kill Ron Anderson. The forum is so much more pleasant now! Thanks for the time and trouble you put into this - I mean it.

Yes, thanks be for a collection of 0's and 1's that reduces discussion to an echo.

Maybe we could ask Narcissus for some pointers but the problem with that is he is a character in a fable. Real people are usually quite inconvenient because they say stuff that makes others feel funny.

I may still try that but for now I'm surfing supertaco on FF.

By simply adding The Chuff, Rong, sketch, go-b and TGT to the list and the noise/stupidity to signal ratio has decreased exponentially.

Not to mention the now dead in the water AGW thread.

go figure, right?

Those of you who say that we should listen to all points of view are deluded, and are giving credence to the trolls who ruin internet forums.
No one has that much spare time to waste.

Personally, I'm terrible at making coherent points, or stringing together logical arguments to support my opinion on very important issues of the day.

On top of that, I can't ignore non-climbing threads on a climbing forum...I just can't do it. It's impossible.

Tack on to that, I'm shunned by the opposite sex for the most part - they find my smaller frame and boy-hands to be less than appealing, and Lord knows my lack of confidence doesn't help.

That's why I'm so glad they made this killfile thing. FINALLY. Something for me. Something I can get behind, wash away anything that hurts my tender eyes. I can't take it anymore!
