Killfile in the sandbox?

Is there a trick to getting Andrew's ignoreuser script to work in the sandbox? I've added ilx.thehold.net to the page list and the different usernames to the script, but no luck.

It works for me! All I did was add http://ilx.thehold.net/thread.php* to the site list.

Jon, I've got the script tile at home, but the only link I had was from ole-ILX :( Maybe Andrew will re-linkify once Aus wakes up.

Jon, it's a greasemonkey script, I can e-mail you the text of it and you can pretty it up.

Maybe Andrew will re-linkify once Aus wakes up.

Andrew's split from ILX completely. Can't blame him.

I couldn't find Andrew's, but Will's earlier version is here:

http://216.239.59.104/search?q=cache:O5qsqzD_IRMJ:ilx.wh3rd.net/thread.php%3Fmsgid%3D5585911+firefox+site:ilx.wh3rd.net&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=14

I think a difference may be that Andrew's version told you who had been killfiled, but here the posts just disappear.

Jaq, did you ever get it to work? I can't get it to work here either.

No :( But I continue to poke at it. I had trouble getting it to recognize a second user (w/ space in name) on ole-ILX, but eventually it took.

jaq (jaq), Thursday, 15 February 2007 15:35 (fourteen years ago) link

If users have spaces in their username, just enter in a plus sign instead of the space, and it should work.

I can't get Andrew's script to work :-( Anyone know how to modify Will's to say whose post has been removed?

Anyway, the UK Watercooler thread is a lot more readable now.

I've had some trouble with these scripts as well.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Thursday, 15 February 2007 16:18 (fourteen years ago) link

i have no idea how it's even possible to read the w/c thread with ahem whoever you're killfiling killfiled out.

temporary enrique (temporary enrique), Thursday, 15 February 2007 16:20 (fourteen years ago) link

OK, seriously, how would a killfile handle it if you had killfiled the thread starter? Would the thread not display? Or would it just be a blank message?

That's a really interesting question.

(though the mentality of someone who avidly reads the chat thread of someone they dislike enough to killfile is really kinda beyond me, but that's neither here nor there)

I can't see anyones posts in this thread now:(

well, i don't actually want to read the watercooler thread, it was just a good testing ground. i guess a filtered version might suggest some more additions to the killfile, too.

i like how killfiles have gone from something that it seemed that hardly anyone wanted to something that loads of people are using.

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 15 February 2007 16:47 (fourteen years ago) link

It doesn't show up as blank if the thread starter is the person who is being killfiled. It will say "Post by KILLFILED removed" and then go on from there.

How on earth would you know what the thread is about, then? Would there even be a thread title?

Sorry, this is just fascinating - not something I'd thought of. (And probably something I should think about before trying to install a killfile.)

masonic boom (kate), Thursday, 15 February 2007 17:07 (fourteen years ago) link

I'm pretty sure I actually did encounter this on old ILX and I think there was a thread title, it just removed the actual post.

Andrew's script works (and I think Will's does too) by checking the username field - if it matches a username in the ignoreuser list (separate calls at the end of Andrew's script and an array of names in Will's script), then the text of the post is removed. So neither script touches the titles of threads, but would remove the initial post if it was made by an ignored user. You do have to have the username field displayed in your settings to get either one to work.

(I started reading up on the scripts last night to try to be more effective in my troubleshooting instead of just poking at it and constantly reloading the page over and over and over again.)

Perhaps because they like catching up with some people and not others? (why are you assuming it's you that's being killfiled on there anyway?)

ha, i'm guessing that's a killfiled quote! awesome! if it's a watercooler ref to me then i never read it, i just thought it would make an amusing test.

toby (tsg20), Thursday, 15 February 2007 23:51 (fourteen years ago) link

It was, from further up this thread. That broken image that's not showing up is the album cover from "Flogging a Dead Horse", btw.

ha!

When this becomes widespread I'm going to pretend to have one for a different person every day - "What? Who said that? Who are you working for?"
