tom is working on a new one

chaki, Thursday, 22 February 2007 22:51 (fourteen years ago) link

Then I will wait patiently. Thanks magic box smarties, one and all.

Fluffy Bear, Thursday, 22 February 2007 22:54 (fourteen years ago) link

pft I suck at this btw. the webmail link in between the div class and the actual username is killing me right now. If I can figure that out it should work

TOMBOT, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 17:17 (fourteen years ago) link

Thanks! One slight issue - is it just me or does this leave absolutely no evidence of excision, not even a line?

toby, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 18:14 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah none whatsoever. I am thinking about working on it. I honestly haven't put anybody in my own script yet.

TOMBOT, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 18:17 (fourteen years ago) link

i think i prefer there to be no evidence at all. as long as there's a choice of either/or then cool. i haven't tried this on nu-ilx yet tho. cheers to ever-useful koogs (A&J + other bits on their way to you as soon as the DVD-Rs i ordered arrive btw).

blueski, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 18:19 (fourteen years ago) link

i did try stealing a bit of andrew's code for inserting a message but gave up after 5 minutes of not getting it to work.

yes, no lines because now the lines are inside the messages rather than between them.

(cheers stevem)

koogs, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 19:10 (fourteen years ago) link

I am closing in on replacing killed posts with text/hr. But it will probably take me until tonight to finish at the rate I'm going.

Jaq, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 19:43 (fourteen years ago) link

ok, replace the code in the last for loop with

var thisLink = posts.snapshotItem(i);
div = thisLink.parentNode;
div.innerHTML = "<div>Post by " + jerk + " deleted<br /><hr/></div>";

and that should do it.

koogs, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 19:44 (fourteen years ago) link

xpost. sorry Jaq. 8)

koogs, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 19:45 (fourteen years ago) link

Oh excellent koogs, that rox - you saved me hours of poking at stuff :) I was only getting the names to replace instead of the whole post.

Jaq, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 20:06 (fourteen years ago) link

Hahaha! Oh, that works a treat :)

I changed the text to be div.innerHTML = "<div>Inanity by the poxy fule" + jerk + " deleted for all time.<br /><hr/></div>";

Jaq, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 20:10 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm going to make mine the boxcar no no no speech bubble I think

TOMBOT, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 20:21 (fourteen years ago) link

Awesome, Koogs! I love it.

toby, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 21:02 (fourteen years ago) link

A fantastic idea. I have been too lazy to set up the new killfile so far though.

Nicole, Wednesday, 28 February 2007 22:23 (fourteen years ago) link

i had some trouble earlier today because i had 8080 in the url and that's changed.

anyway, place this snippet before the for loop for a nice little reminder in top right that some messages were blocked

if (posts.snapshotLength != 0) {
var logo = document.createElement("div");
logo.innerHTML = '<div style="position:fixed; top:0; right:0; left=auto; z-index:10; background-color:red; color:white; font-size:10pt; font-weight:bold;">Some Posts Were Blocked</div>';
document.body.insertBefore(logo, document.body.firstChild);
}

(jaq, got email, thanks. most of credit goes to will for the original, i only fixed it for ilx2 (my first greasemonkey script as it happens))

koogs, Saturday, 3 March 2007 15:01 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm dying to know who is killing whom. I challenge you to create a little PacManesque critter that gobbles up the posts of those you deem killable.

Maria :D, Saturday, 3 March 2007 15:09 (fourteen years ago) link

another one, this one makes the Skipping x messages a lot bigger and redder:

// ==UserScript==
// @name Skipping
// @namespace
// @description A Bigger Skipping Message
// @include http://www.ilxor.com/*
// ==/UserScript==

skipping = document.evaluate("//div/form/p[starts-with(a, 'Skipping ')]",
document,
null,
XPathResult.UNORDERED_NODE_SNAPSHOT_TYPE,
null);

// get paragraph, set colours
p = skipping.snapshotItem(0)
p.style.textAlign = 'center';
p.style.backgroundColor = 'red';
p.style.fontWeight = 'bolder';
p.style.fontStyle = 'normal';
p.style.fontSize = '15px';

koogs, Saturday, 3 March 2007 16:17 (fourteen years ago) link

Thanks, Tom. Thanks Koogs!

"<div>BLAH BLAH BLAH " + jerk + " I CAN'T HEAR YOU<br /><hr/></div>";

Fluffy Bear, Saturday, 3 March 2007 17:12 (fourteen years ago) link

most of credit goes to will for the original

cheers koogs, I still owe you a pint. And Will, you too wherever you are. I worked out how to convert the img src links to a href, but then realized if I open a thread with ton of pics it's still pulling them down so takes forever to load etc. A worthwhile exercise, I guess, but pointless.

Jaq, Saturday, 3 March 2007 17:26 (fourteen years ago) link

(oddly those last two changes don't work together - the first creates a div that seems to break the xpath in the second. maybe if i add the div at the end...)

yes, next thing was going to be modifying the 'Skipping...' message link to point to the exact message within the expanded page, save people having to find it again. unfortunately that needed some server code changes but, apparently, they were done before i even mentioned it. that keith may look dozy but he's actually quite on the ball. 8)

koogs, Sunday, 4 March 2007 10:26 (fourteen years ago) link

Potential killfile quirk alert - I don't seem to be able to block anyone whose username contains non-ANSI characters.

J, Friday, 16 March 2007 15:55 (fourteen years ago) link

i did wonder, only yesterday, if that would cause problems. i guess the problem is getting the characters into the javascript.

possible way around this is to turn the test into a 'starts-with' or a 'contains' so you can find parts of words without having to match the entire thing, for instance, and this is only an example, first thing that popped into my head, don't know why, 'ppppp dude'.

(of course, making it a substring makes it hard to then block anyone called, i don't know, 'J' 8)

koogs, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:15 (fourteen years ago) link

Now who would want to block lil' ol' me?

(Actually, I think TOMBOT has me blocked!)

J, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:21 (fourteen years ago) link

I have the name you used to spam rotten.com stuff when you were mad about the existence of a bummerz thread blocked on my work computer!

jessie monster, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:26 (fourteen years ago) link

now that you keep registering new names I kind of feel like I am being challenged to block them all! like a fun game.

jessie monster, Friday, 16 March 2007 16:28 (fourteen years ago) link

That wasn't me! I have no idea how to do any of that stuff! I'm J McChump, and I've been posting here for years!

was thinking of redoing this just last night. gimme a couple of hours...

in the meantime you need firefox and its greasemonkey extension thing...

koogs, Tuesday, 17 April 2007 08:20 (fourteen years ago) link

ok, new version:

http://www.koogy.clara.co.uk/ilx/kilxor.user.js

this now uses regular expressions so you can match against just a bit of the username - change the values on line 15.

awesome!!!!!!!!!! thank you thank you thank you

if you killfile someone, do you killfile the titles of threads they start in addition to posts they make or only their posts?

gabbneb, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 14:58 (fourteen years ago) link

only their posts (inc the opening post of a thread they start)

blueski, Tuesday, 15 May 2007 15:01 (fourteen years ago) link

[xpost] Only their posts. The script could be changed to kill the thread titles too, I think.

curse them for changing stuff. will look into it.

koogs, Monday, 21 May 2007 14:30 (fourteen years ago) link

done. there's a new P around the status line which means everything is one level deeper, that was the problem.

I must confess that I've never understood the purpose of killfiling. I can't be the only one who possesses the ability to not read a thing I don't care to read.

Unless I am the only one...whoa.

pomenitul, Thursday, 13 August 2020 15:01 (one year ago) link

some of us have reached a point where seeing certain people's dns and accompanying bullshit over the course of a decade plus have conditioned us to see red when those posters say or do anything, so better for our health and the health of the board that we leave it be.

also, some posters (and oddly, often the same ones that offend!) tend to clog up whole threads (or boards!) with their nonstop blithering, so it's nice to have the option to enjoy the thread/board minus their influence.

though more power to you if you have a killfile... in your MIND

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Thursday, 13 August 2020 15:02 (one year ago) link

Finally crossed over from Killfile of the Mind to Killfile of the Greasemonkey, and the absolute best thing about it, is if you have even minimal programming skills, you can script it so that your poxy FULES are actually repeating very amusing jokes instead of their usual blethering, which has increased my enjoyment of ILX substantially.

Highly reccommend. *PLEASE* killfile me.

Branwell with an N, Thursday, 13 August 2020 15:17 (one year ago) link

> Is there a way to killfile a thread instead of a poster?

wouldn't be too hard (in fact i vaguely remember doing this already). threads can appear in many places though, blocking them everywhere might be a pain. and you'd have to enter the threadid somewhere, which is a bit oblique.

koogs, Thursday, 13 August 2020 15:33 (one year ago) link

IIRC the old script was easily edited to do this because I did it

of course, I then stopped using it and then switch computers about a billion times so I don't remember what I did

can be edited to replace the poster's post with ai-generated text seeded by the thread title

You can killfile yourself - that's how I test it.

don't understand the why of killfile

Dan S, Friday, 14 August 2020 01:40 (one year ago) link

I can understand being annoyed by others’ posts, but pretty much everyone here is posting in earnest and it’s just a message board

Dan S, Friday, 14 August 2020 01:49 (one year ago) link

Yep, pretty much everybody!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 14 August 2020 03:34 (one year ago) link

Pretty much. Killfile is for the 1%.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Friday, 14 August 2020 03:35 (one year ago) link

if you want to make a name for yourself as a poster, killfile EVERYONE. then just go into threads with appealing that interest you and speak your mind.

no context. no discursive triangulation. just posting. pure posting.

new snatk script - site new answers thread killer

unfortunately, threads are numbered per-board, so you need to supply the boardid as well as the threadid. i also had to take care of the 'updated' threads, which have an extra css attribute. but generally the structure of a thread link is easier than a post so code is shorter.

it *might* work in places other than Site New Answers. let's see...

yes. also works in 'new answers' (ie board view) - go to HTML Playground to test.

how do I killfile someone with a forward-slash in their username? it screws up the coding, is there a code sequence I can encase that slash in?

Überschadenfreude (sleeve), Friday, 19 February 2021 01:39 (seven months ago) link

I know you can killfile either display name (the one in parentheses or the one not) so maybe just killfile their other name?
