How to deal with Oxygen Thieves - AKA The Shitlist

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by BFG 9000, Aug 20, 2005.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  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
    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.
  2. I want one!!!!
  3. Well it's all free........
  4. 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
  5. BFG you are the man!

    Beebs :lol:
  6. Can we get a version for IE?
  7. Sorry mate, but you can get Firefox for free.
  8. It works with quoted posts too......



  9. The latest version is now live - I've replaced all instances of ' hidelist ' with ' shitlist ' :D


  10. 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.
  11. fanbloodytastic!!!!!

    Thank you thank you thank you!! Works a treat BFG!! :lol:
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. And as if by magic Anya and sniper9 are now fcuking history

    BFG, you're a star :)
  15. I second that... all in favour?
