Title: Brontoforum browser extension thread!
Post by: Norondor on February 13, 2010, 06:48:43 AM
It's finished! After some work by yyler (and useless nagging from me) the Bleck Blocker script is available for chrome users!

Just download the script (http://daniel.suckramento.org/ignorasaur.user.js) and drag into a chrome window, confirm the installation, and the extension will automatically hide all posts by Bleck from view. Unlike some some Simple Machines user blocking extensions, this one doesn't add a line of text denoting the presence of a blocked post, so unless someone reads what Bleck has to say and quotes it -- something which should no longer be a problem with this script -- you'll have no idea that he decided to say anything to anyone ever.

Props to yyler for the script and hosting.

Can I mod it to target Classic instead? :>_>:

It's possible. Tyler's asleep now, but he can explain it later.

Of course, classic is cool. I just don't know why he acts like a derp, but that's his business.

Uh.... why does Bleck merit an ignorance app? Is he breaking the rules? I'm pretty sure Thad has yet to swoop down like a drunken cherub and castigate him.

Can you make it so it blocks posts that are only emoticons?

That's the point.  If he was doing something bannable, we would ban him.  For now, he's just being a moron, so this is the better solution.

I must already be using this plugin, because I can't recall a single thing he's ever done, positive or negative.

I'm not even entirely sure who he is.  I'm just vaguely aware that we have a member named Bleck for some reason.

But if you block all of my posts, how will you know when your constant dismissal of me finally drives me off the deep end. Beginning a month long spree of violence where I throw people out of windows shouting, "WHY WON'T THEY LOOOVE MEEEEEE!?!"

Hey Frocto.

Let's say, hypothetically, that during the rest of my stay at WFE I never use another emoticon.  Not too much of a stretch, really, considering this is the only forum I ever bother using them on in the first place because WFE's don't suck.

Let's also say for the sake of argument that I never actually post anything unless I can come up with something thoughtful and relevant to say; granted that's kind of a subjective thing, but bear with me.

Keeping those two things in mind, is there even a fucking snowcone's chance in Phoenix that it would change your opinion of me, or at least keep you from feeling like you have to bitch about me at every given opportunity?  Intuition seems to tell me "no," but if I'm wrong, then by all means--feel free to correct me.

In the meantime, I admit that I can get a little stupid with the emoticons, and the last few days I have tried not to use them as much, but if their inclusion in a post is really such a huge fucking grievance around here then maybe you should talk to the admins about having them removed, or at least come up with a way for people to turn them off like signatures.

tl;dr Walker has it out with Frocto in a paragraphs-long fight to the death (or at least to the annoyance of surrounding posters)!  Footage at 11!

Seconding the ignore Walker request after that incredible display of crying and blaming others for being a giant derp.

"Hey admins, why don't you remove the emoticons if you don't want me to be a giant retard with them!"

No. What he SAID was "Why don't you talk to the admins about a function to turn off emoticons in profile settings?"

Right?
Title: Re: Brontoforum browser extension thread!
Post by: Doom on February 13, 2010, 11:20:21 AM
That was an alternative. The gist of his post is that we shouldn't be so mean to him because he's stupid, but develop methods to hide that he's stupid.

Like yyler's amazing script!
Title: Re: Brontoforum browser extension thread!
Post by: Lottel on February 13, 2010, 11:32:23 AM
I think we are reading different posts.
I keep seeing him as saying "I'm a dumbass, I know. But I am getting better. It doesn't matter though because you guys will hate me no matter what."

Post by: Guild on February 13, 2010, 12:03:12 PM
For the record, that was the first post of Walker's I can recall reading entirely. I thought it was pretty good. Just the right amount of pissy... I gave him 8/10 and thought he was a PRO PRO poster.

Please don't ban me for :scruffy: the previous :scruffy: commentary.

No. What he SAID was "Why don't you talk to the admins about a function to turn off emoticons in profile settings?"

Right?

And it's a dumb idea because the emoticons are not the problem, it's the fact that people will throw seventeen different emoticons into a single post and call it good.

Imagine we're having a weekly pot-luck dinner. Most people bring dishes that have tasty and clever use of condiments... but two or three guys just keep bringing a bowl full of ketchup or mustard or mayo sprinkled with salt, pepper, sugar, and Parmesan cheese. Maybe there's some meat under there or something; I don't know. And then when we complain about this, their attitude is that perhaps people who don't like it can go to a potluck where CONDIMENTS ARE BANNED ENTIRELY.

You can just skip the metaphors and say "emoticon-only posts suck" (yes i am guilty, i do not claim to have a 100% clean posting record because i am not sharkey)

Post by: yyler on February 13, 2010, 02:18:34 PM
Okay anyway, this is just a userscript so it works in Chrome, Firefox, and probably Opera and Safari using whatever they do.

Ignoring more people is easy, and the script explains it. Open it in your favorite text editor and you'll see this:
Code: [Select]
//to ignore user with id 1, 2 a 3 uncomment the following lines, evtl. add more lines in format "banned.push(uid);"
//banned.push(1);
//banned.push(2);
//banned.push(3);
banned.push(367);

The first three lines are commented out, and the last one ignores Bleck. I trust you all understand that much. 367 is his user ID. Add another line with another user ID to ignore another person. Walker's is 280. I don't advise blocking Classic.

I don't know about emoticon only posts. Probably can't ignore them, I don't know (or rather, I know what I could do to do it and it's a lot of work). I could look into it. Seems somewhat fruitless.

(In Chrome, which has somewhat shoddy userscript support, you'll have to go to the extensions page (http://chrome://extensions/) and uninstall it before re-adding it with whatever new lines you add.)

I am against blocking or ignoring certain posters because some of the funniest posts I've ever seen here are in response to complete idiots making fools of themselves.
Title: Re: Brontoforum browser extension thread!
Post by: Norondor on February 13, 2010, 03:46:30 PM
Normally i agree, but Bleck just sucks. He's just a shitty low-rent 4chan troll. When he says something stupid, people will rebut it brilliantly and he'll move his goalposts and continue making an ass of himself. There isn't even value in calling him nasty names. He is a big stinky heap of garbage in a human suit.

Ah! This argument!

No, no, see, whenever someone is snarky they quote the bad post in their own snarky post so everyone knows. So no one has to change anything! You can still see sick burns and what they are burning without reading anything else, ever, forever and ever amen.

But if you don't like it anyway, that's alright, not everyone will. People are still up in arms at the inclusion of a default ignore list in php BB 3. Just don't use it.

Pffft. Y'all a bunch of hypocritical dicks.
I don't think anyone is a bad poster.
I think some posts are low on the entertainment factor, but I don't condemn a poster because he is a bad poster.
Nope. The posts that get on my nerves are when people be angry asses by yelling at people.
I know that not everyone likes each other but damn it be civil about it.
Calling each other out left and right is just not a good thing to do.

(http://i630.photobucket.com/albums/uu23/Bon_Bon_2009/scruffy-1.jpg), pretty much. I simply wanted to beat the inevitable Classic joke (though it makes me equally hypocritical herp a derp). He's alright with me even if he is incredibly lame and predictable sometimes.

I'd like to think that good posting is a learned behavior, so ostracizing and alienating new or mediocre posters can be counterproductive. And if they're learning disabled... well, we banned Sora eventually, right?
