How to deal with Oxygen Thieves - AKA The Shitlist

#1
Greetings All,

I've been working hard here at BFG Towers to bring you........

shitlist.xpi (EDIT 12/11/2006 this link doesn't work with later versions of Firefox - you need to use this version for firefox 1.5.x.x) ( Technical note : you'll need to save it onto your desktop & then drag it into a firefox window.)

Unfortunately, it's only for Firefox users.
It's a way of 'ignoring' ANY user - you'll never see ANY of their posts.

Here's how it works.



Notice in the screenshot above, a ' # ' symbol just before my username.
When you click it, this happens :-




When you click on ' OK ', the page refreshes & you get this :-



Notice that you can, if you wish, click on ' Toggle Display ' to see the contents of that particular post.
Also, notice that the '
# ' is still there - this will take someone OFF your shitlist.

Original Credit goes to a guy called ' Unarmed ' from http://forums.mozillazine.org
He wrote the original script, I just tweaked it to work with ARRSE.


Feedback will be graciously recieved.

P.S. If you don't have Firefox, you really should consider it.

Excellent idea BFG, especially when we are under incoming from knobbers like ruperto/silas, could have done with one of these earlier

Many thanks for the repellent, troll, mk1

Hey,
i just downloaded firefox and it's brilliant. The way it works makes IE look like a ford fiesta and firefox like a maserati. Advice to anyone, get it and take just 10 minutes to find your way around it, it's the nuts. The Shitlist function is a bloody wonderful idea too. Thanks BFG, hard work and time much appreciated.

I'm sorry BFG but that is far too complicated for me. I am a bit of a technophobe - Just ask BBC. She knows how slow I type. I have however come up with a solution. Those with less than up to scratch Computer Skills can simulate the same effect by raising a hand in front of the monitor. Thus obscuring the offending post. Try it for yourself.

Scratch my last BFG. After following your clear and concise instructions I have installed the software and successfully added that cnut sniper9 to my shit list.

Thanks Mate.
