Does that mean that emails are sent after the 5 minutes?

No, emails are sent immediately. You can edit the online message within 5 minutes, except if already read online by the recipient.

For now, you can simply use the s BBCode tag. It works, it just lacks a button. Being a keyboard forum, I'd like to think that you're not afraid of typing …

Not exactly discoverable, though, is it?

Indeed, I only learned the [ url= ] and [ s ] tags after quite a while here, finally spotting them quite by accident inside a quotation of someone else's post.

Strikethrough could use a strike through its S in the editor. Wysiwyg, right? Minor niggle but the other buttons mostly indicate with their type as well as their unstyled name. Also, doesn't it feel more at home next to bold, italic and underline? And as a lowercase struck through s.

It would be really cool if there was an equivalent to a .gitignore configuration file, a setting I could apply to my profile/account that would be a list of strings (with wildcards) that would filter out threads to ignore (by thread title). And by ignore, I mean they don't show up at all while I am logged into my account.

Perhaps another method is creating a guide for how not to feed the trolls and how to douse flame wars.

I was probably unclear, but I meant a per-user setting so that I could ignore threads that weren't of interest to me (politics, etc). That wouldn't cause any censorship.

+1 for this suggestion, also. Except I'd like it to be for unread thread view also.

You guys aren't the first to want this:

Yeah, I'd love to not see the politics threads in the spy. The only pointless bickering I want to see on Deskthority is about input device preferences! :evil:

Unfortunately, Webwit says it would be difficult:

Although my guess is they'd rather spend time reading about input devices ;) The good news is politics threads blow over.

Why a browser extension? I'm pretty sure it would be as easy to write a phpBB extension... :twisted:

It could be a simple userscript even. There's just one JavaScript function you need to override. But writing it as a phpBB extension would require database permissions and writing in PHP, neither of which are any fun...

Is there a staging version of DT that I can use for testing? I don't want to spam "test" in any threads...

If you post this into your browser's dev tools in a spy window you won't get updates from any threads with "republican" in the name:

Code: Select all
function handle_response(response)
{
    if (response == null || response == undefined) {
        return false;
    }

    if (typeof(response) == 'number') {
        last_update = response;
        return true;
    }
    if (typeof(response) == 'object') {
       if (response.who_online) {
          var who_online = $(response.who_online);

          $('#who-online').html(who_online.html());
      }
       if (response.birthdays) {
          var birthdays = $(response.birthdays);
          var no_new_birthdays = birthdays.hasClass('no-birthdays');
          var no_cur_birthdays = $('#birthdays').hasClass('no-birthdays');

          $('#birthdays').html(birthdays.html());
          if (!no_cur_birthdays && no_new_birthdays) {
             setTimeout("$('#birthdays').fadeOut(1500, function() { $(this).addClass('no-birthdays'); });", 999);
          } else if (no_cur_birthdays && !no_new_birthdays) {
             $('#birthdays').slideDown(function() { $('#birthdays').removeClass('no-birthdays'); });
          }
      }
       if (response.statistics) {
          var statistics = $(response.statistics);

          $('#phpbb-stats').html(statistics.html());
      }
       if (response.mark_as_read) {
         alert(last_update + ' ' + response.mark_as_read);
      }
       last_update = response.last_update;
       if (response.results) {
          $.each(response.results, function(key, val) {
                if (! val.TOPIC_TITLE.toLowerCase().includes("republican")) {
                 $('#searchtopics-body tr:last').find('td').wrapInner('<div style="display: block;" />').parent().find('td > div').slideUp(1000, function() {
                   $(this).parent().parent().remove();
                });
                $('#searchtopics-body').prepend(make_row(val));
                $('#searchtopics-body tr:first').find('td').wrapInner('<div style="display: none;" />').parent().find('td > div').slideDown(1000, function() {
                   var $set = $(this);
                   $set.replaceWith($set.contents());
                });
                }
          });
       }
       if (df.open_new_tab) {
          $('a.topictitle').attr('target', '_blank');
       }
       return true;
   }
}

The only difference between this and the live code is that this code checks the title of the thread before adding it to the Spy page (see `if (! val.TOPIC_TITLE.toLowerCase().includes("republican"))`).

I've wasted enough time on this so anyone willing to take this further, feel free. This is just a quick hack, I'm not a JavaScript developer, etc. ;)

Somewhat related, and excuse me if it's obvious, but is there a way to unsubscribe (remove from "view your posts") from a topic that you posted to?

I suggest to open a sub-forum or thread for Interest Checks under Marketplace. It may be addressed before, so please excuse me if it was already discussed.
