It's here fellas: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/100977
I made it into a Chrome Extension: https://chrome.google.com/extensions/detail/abjhkncpebiaepcp...
Just curious: is this out of some Chrome extension limitation or to cut down on unnecessary refreshes?
All the extension actually does is load the original script when you visit HN.
Two suggestions, maybe to add as options:
- open both comments and articles in new tabs automatically, since the assumption is power users keep the home page open anyway.
- Display the new comment and vote count as a difference? Seems more intuitive to me.
Edit: Changed all my links to point to mrspeaker's master except the loader. Any changes he makes should get reflected automatically.
So awesome in fact, that I really wanted this as a browser extension. I quickly packaged it for Chrome, and have published it on the Extension Gallery for all you hackers. Get it while it's fresh:
P.S. The (very minimal) source is on GitHub, too: https://github.com/obeattie/HackemUp-extension
+1 for a Chrome extension though, I don't know if I am going to remember to keep clicking the bookmarklet.
Then click it when you're on HN.
When I first ran across HN I was refreshed by how little of these terms I saw.
In this case, however, labels serve a purpose - they identify someone as a member of an ingroup. There is, unequivocally, a "nerd culture." (What that is, of course, is a matter for much debate.) Identifying or presenting as a nerd communicates that the signaler considers themself a part of that culture or community.
Finding communities amongst each domain can be difficult. Luckily, there is a culture that embraces and celebrates domain specific knowledge regardless of the domain. Members of that culture signal to each other by identifying as "geek" or "nerd."
Doesn't this make the voluntary label okay?
Amazing functionality packed into a single bookmarklet. I love it.
