1. Hey everyone, We’re going to start a weekly email to surface interesting threads in the forums. No worries, you can easily unsubscribe if you don’t find it interesting. If you’re like me, it’s nice to have someone willing to poke around a big community like ours and find the most interesting stuff. Saves time and I hate missing something great. It worked really well when we had someone discovering the best photos for the home page rotation back in the day. And if you have something fascinating to post, maybe this email does everyone some good by getting it noticed. Let us know what you think when you get it. Your feedback will make it better as we go (thread). Thanks! Baldy & rudy1220

    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?
