+1 Pretty cool work.I've already two feature requests: 1. A ding sound when reputations change. 2. A third stat with reputation and badges together. –  systempuntoout May 27 '10 at 12:34
    
Love the ding idea. –  Nathan Osman May 27 '10 at 16:52
    
Is it possible to show the rep without the "k" notation? –  Espo May 30 '10 at 13:37
    
@systempuntoout I'll add an optional ding if I can. @espo I'll make it an option. –  carson May 30 '10 at 16:22
    
I have a small problem. When I tell Swatch to find my user name it returns an error "There was a problem with the request: Status code = 500" Any ideas? –  Pulse Jun 10 '10 at 10:04
    
@Pulse are you getting that when you try to find your id on stack overflow or one of the other sites? Can you tell me exactly what you typed into the search field? –  carson Jun 10 '10 at 11:36
    
Hi. Select 'configure' from the status bar, select a site that I am logged into, such as Super User or Server Fault, select 'search', enter my user name and select 'Lookup' The extension says it's searching but after approximately 20 seconds it returns the error message noted above. All sites respond the same way. –  Pulse Jun 10 '10 at 11:54
    
@Pulse I think I need to know exactly what you are entering as your name. My guess is that something isn't being encoded correctly and I need to fix that. Can you give me an example of what user name you are entering that gives you that error? Can you try searching for something like "Jon" and tell me if that breaks as well? –  carson Jun 10 '10 at 12:14
    
I am using Pulse for the user name although I did try my real name, just in case. I also tried your name (carson)for the Stack Apps site and one or two other names, chosen at random from the other Stack sites. They all return the same error. –  Pulse Jun 10 '10 at 12:24
    
@Pulse Can you tell me the version of firefox you are using? This could be a tough one to track down. It may also help if we move the conversation over to the support group that I set up here groups.google.com/group/swatch-support –  carson Jun 10 '10 at 12:29
    
I'm running 3.6.6pre but I can download a 3.6.3/4 version and see if it makes a difference, it will only take a few minutes. I'll move over to the google group now. –  Pulse Jun 10 '10 at 12:50
    
You didn't do this, did you? meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/54597/… –  George Stocker Jun 22 '10 at 15:40

This is currently disabled on Firefox plug-in page:

Mozilla.org > ADD-ONS > Extensions > Swatch

Are there issues with this 'by-passing' controls, or allowing extra privileges?

If you find it let me know where. –  Buscar웃 Apr 15 '13 at 20:50

This seems to have worked so far great (on FF4b2) its got the mentions for my SO and SA. However I can't add my stackoverflow username, I can add my SO and SA username but not SO. I type in Jonathan and it doesn't come up with my avatar. Could you make it possible to type in the number ID directly, without having to search for usernames. You'd only need to enable the textboxes.

Could you upload the extension so I can download it? The main link seems to be broken :/ –  Oscar Mederos May 4 '11 at 4:27
