I guess this is like 2000 pages since someone said "fuck" in this thread for the last timef. :mrgreen: You know, there are fan-made sequels to Time, one of them is running right now, so we are still pretty entertained and it's not completely off-topic, which would seem almost impossible.

fNot counting "ch*rp", of course

ETA: Ok, I did the math and the above statement is not true at all. It was almost exactly 100 pages ago. Which is still impressive in comparison to average internet forum thread. :D And if you don't count the citations and the weird seaish copy-pasted haiku, then the last proper "fuck" was said about 200 pages ago.
Time. The final frontier. These are the voyages of Cueball and Megan. Its continuing mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no one has gone before.

That's a pretty common grievance, apparently, and not only with PHPBB. SimpleMachines has a similar issue, for instance.

As far as forum software is concerned, it's possible to implement such a system, but hacking it onto PHPBB is (I could be wrong, though, didn't check) too much of a hassle to be worth it.
As for a userscript... Well the basic mechanism is that when an unread post is loaded, all previous unread posts in that thread are marked read*, so at first glance, such a script would need to load the last post of every topic you blacklist every time you call a page (or a bit less often, with unread-post detection), which would quickly get unwieldy. Then again, maybe there's another way that would make the process less painful, but I don't know of it.

*actually, rereading that, I reckon it's the other way round. The forum keeps a list of last posts read per (user, thread) and all posts loaded with a greater id are signalled as "unread". This is only speculation on my part, but the principle remains : if you want to remove the "unread" marker, you need to load the latest post in the thread or manipulate the forum database directly, which I strongly advise against.

It would only need to run as you click on the button for the page with the unread posts. At that point the script must load the unwanted topic (post number 999999alotofnines99). It doesn't even have to load it fully, only requesting it may sent the right state. Then the script must load the new posts page. The server load would only increase by a bit, especially as there is probably no reason to load attachments or whatever.

Indeed, I hadn't thought about that page (I don't use it), and was thinking more in terms of general forum browsing... Maybe I overcomplicated things >.<

Indeed. As for when the flagging is done, this will need additional testing.

Is this something that can actually be done ? It would indeed be pretty handy.

So yeah, it's looking slightly more feasible to create such a script. Still, I'm not yet proficient enough with javascript to attempt it. Maybe our more experienced scriptsmiths would like to chime in ?

THIS is why I really like the OTT. I may not be the most prolific contributer to the thread but I always read along. It feels like home. I come here for fun and nice people, blitzreports, emphatic posts, news about wolpies and ffs, missing Blitzgirl, the antics of the beanies and people who obviously are a lot more knowledgeable than me, enabling me to be one of todays 10.000.

And sometimes there is a post which may be construed as somewhat rude. But not like in other places of the net, there is no erruption of an argument or flames. No, there is statistics and helpfull acknowlegdement of the deeper problem which has elicited the aforementioned post. (And by doing so aggrevating it by pushing the thread higher each time again. :-)

Thank you, OTTers.

This. Totally this.

I was a little sad to see such hostility from a former OTTer. It didn't even sound like Pfhorrest. I guess it was brought up by a lot of frustration. But as Sciscitor pointed out, others (OTTers) turned it into a useful and educational discussion. You guys are all awesomeful.

Pfhorrest, visit more often! You'll see there are still lots of molpish things happening, and then when it comes up in your unread posts list, you'll be happy.

I'm surprised that there are people who try to read every other comic discussion thread. For me, exactly two comic discussion threads are marked as having no unread posts (not counting sticky/announcement threads), specifically this one and the Superb OwlCon Text one. The remaining 47 threads are marked as having unread posts, and that causes me no trouble at all.

But if it must be hidden, it can with the following script (which I tested in the Chrome console, so I expect it can be run be Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey)

Be welcome to use Eternal Density's userscript to make this thread invisible for you. :)

@ED: Thank you for writing it. Effectively you enable users to kill this thread for them, which paradoxically can make it more sustainable in the big picture. Awesomeful.

I totally get being stressed and having that cause one to lash out at things. I don't understand why this thread still being active would annoy someone who used to be a part of it, but thanks to ED for the Maximum Heresy script to avoid frustration for others (not OTTers).

Are those tiles magnetic? The bots release them, and then they float up and are attracted to the edges of other tiles and connect to them. Any other ideas?

i was part of this thread as part of following the Time comic and analyzing it and seeing where it was going. When it was over I expected this thread to die out soon, like all other comic threads do. I was never really into the weird insular culture that developed here, just Time itself; and now that Time is over, and this thread exists just for its own sake, and is not of interest to me, seeing it constantly pop up gets kind of annoying.

really I think the most appropriate thing would be for everything since the end of Time to be split off into a new thread somewhere else on the forums, but if that hasn't happened by now it probably isn't going to.

oh and thanks everyone for your well-wishes

(honestly i'm kinda surprised that anyone remembers me here, i feel like of all comic threads i've barely participated in this one at all)

Well, we always tried to make it welcoming and non-insular, but it definitely was a weird culture that developed here. And I mean that in the best way. To each their own, of course.

But I definitely remember you. You made more of an impression than you realize! Maybe it's the colorful avatar. :)

I'm glad to see them using the pointy thwapsticks, in however many dimensions it might be. The sooner they throw all that junk into the maelstrom, the better will be their chances of slowing the leak.

A user script (Greasemonkey, Tampermonkey, Violentmonkey, etc.) could certainly do it. The proper approach is to ignore what the server is trying to do, and simply hide the unwanted content. This is essentially @ED's suggestion, except without assuming that your browser is somehow magically running jQuery all the time.
  In the Individual Threads page, for example, a script can step through all <li> elements, and look inside each element for a <dl> containing a <dt> containing an <a> with class "topictitle" that links to the thread (an HREF to something like "./viewtopic.php?f=7&t=113435", where the number "113435" uniquely identifies the thread, any other fields like "f" can be ignored. Once an unwanted <li> element is found, use the Javascript "theElement.style.display="none";" to make it invisible.
  I wrote a script like that for Facebug which hides the "chat sidebar", and it still works (I just checked). The source is on github. Several other scripts in the same repository show hos to look through elements and check sub-elements; for example check the bananascanner function in We Love BANA-na-Yada.

I think I forgot to say thanks for the gamma'd animation, mscha. It's really helpful. I think I see what you mean, mrob, but it's hard to see on my MTA. I'll have to check it out on my full-size TA when I have the chance.

Actually, Chrome's console also does $ but in a slightly different way to what jQuery does, so that was a weird hybrid approach which definitely doesn't work in TamperMonkey. But the new version I've edited into my post does work, by requiring jQuery :P

glad you like my avatar lmjb, i made it myself out of my initials

nice to see addams is still kicking around here too

also ED's userscript solution turned out not so well for me because it still leaves the thread marked as unread, so when I look at IXCT it looks like there are things to be read in there. if anyone can think of a bit of javascript to, say, open a link to the newest page of this thread in a popunder and then immediately close it, I could use that plus ED's code to solve the problem.

THIS is why I really like the OTT. I may not be the most prolific contributer to the thread but I always read along. It feels like home. I come here for fun and nice people, blitzreports, emphatic posts, news about wolpies and ffs, missing Blitzgirl, the antics of the beanies and people who obviously are a lot more knowledgeable than me, enabling me to be one of todays 10.000.

And sometimes there is a post which may be construed as somewhat rude. But not like in other places of the net, there is no erruption of an argument or flames. No, there is statistics and helpfull acknowlegdement of the deeper problem which has elicited the aforementioned post. (And by doing so aggrevating it by pushing the thread higher each time again. :-)

Thank you, OTTers.

This. Totally this.
