    Is the signal to noise ratio in your favorite ride report way out of whack?

    Are page after page of "+1", "I'm in!", :lurk, and :hide getting you down?

    Ever wish you could have something like this?

    Since I'm in a meeting right now, I can't verify. But what URL style are you looking for to show your greasemonkey checkbox? It doesn't work when I'm past the first page.

    (I changed my posts-per-page from 20 to 100 because of you. thanks!)

    The checkbox will not appear on pages 2 through n until you've gone to page 1 and checked the box at least once. This is how the script knows who wrote the first post in a given thread.

    If you've checked the box on page 1 of a thread and it's not showing up on subsequent pages, PM me the full URL (inc. query string).

    Works good on greasemonkey/firefox3.0.8 in Ubuntu.

    Running perfect on my main rig.


    This should be sticky.

    I've run into some snags with getting this script to work in Safari. At this point, the best option requires a shareware app that costs $10. I'm not really interested in paying for something I'll never use -- I use Firefox on my iBook.

    Going the shareware app route would also mean that everyone else will need to pay the $10 in order to use the script on their computers. While the script is nifty, I seriously doubt that anyone will pay $10 for it. So, Safari is most likely out until someone writes a decent Greasemonkey clone for it.

    In the meantime, I've been playing around with this:

    You are evil :D

    Can you make it save the preference for that given thread? I mean, it only 'sticks' when I view the thread, not when I come back to catch up on the thread, right?
