status-completed (used this fix in V1.2.9) Some people are experiencing a problem where the auto link does not appear. This has to do with the fact that the DOM elements on which the selector is based are dynamically loaded into the DOM. The workaround for this is to change line 683 to: setTimeout(function() { $('#' + ...

status-planned (but not much time in the immediate future, if someone else wants to try...) Now tracked as a GitHub issue. Feature Request Can we have the auto link appear when completing a custom "off-topic" closure reason? Bonus points if we can declare certain auto-comments to apply in this scenario (e.g. mirroring the "A" and "Q" prefix for answers ...

status-completed There are two 'major' changes to V1.2.2 'Remote' comment source You can now define an external source for your comments, and 'import' them. This means that you don't have to manually copy comments from site to site and PC to PC. To do this, you click on the 'remote' link; enter the url for your data source; then click on 'get now'. The ...

Please report new issues or feature requests on our issue tracker! The work on making this a full-blown Github based project originally outlined in this answer is now complete. All further feature requests and bug reports should be directed at the Github issue tracker. status-completed I have taken the liberty of doing some organization. I have ...

I would like to suggest Add stackapps.com to list of sites Allow the common "upside-down" unicode characters that have become trendy lately (and some users are using in their names now). Allow basic greek alphabet, since that also seems popular (lot of math and science symbols are greek) Diff format, tested and working for me in Chrome: --- ...

status-completed Can comment text please be collapsed/hidden by default and only expanded for the currently chosen option? This would work kind of like the 'more info' link in the faq which pops out when you click it. (My dialog is getting pretty big now and this would really help!) As already said by many others - thank you so much for this script!!

I felt limited by only six comments, so I made some small improvements. Implemented the following features: Head list items are intended for users, sub list items are intended for developers. Allow the user to enter an unlimited amount of comments. (Add them in import/export) Based the script on the local storage, while using comments only for initial ...

status-completed (something equivalent, anyway) I see a couple of comments here suggesting that Benjol is thinking of making the Welcome message configurable. This is a formal request for that feature. On Skeptics.SE, we have a meta-post which is a Welcome to New Users FAQ, and explains some of the ways Skeptics.SE differs from other Stack Exchanges. I ...

status-completed Feedback: The definitions of the sites are not all-inclusive. For instance, the link doesn't show up on stackapps ;)

Another future idea: expandable groups of comments similar to the way Close>Off-Topic opens a list of sites. status-completed

status-completed Doesn't work on superuser.com (only www.superuser.com) because it includes only domains with a period like so: http://*.superuser.com and should be http://*superuser.com

The comment linking isn't working for answers. On questions it gives links of the form: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/114650/unfair-and-abusive-suspension-because-of-asking-for-help#comment-298448 but on answers it gives links of the form: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/a/114651/59303 I suspect that the new answer link format is throwing it ...

status-completed Small bug: I haven't figured out at which point this happens exactly, but the script seems to be over-enthusiastic adding the "Welcome" prefix: Welcome to $SITENAME$! Welcome to $SITENAME$! Welcome to $SITENAME$! The code you show is vulnerable to SQL injection. Use the proper sanitation method of your library (like ...

This has been fixed.

status-completed Can you also add the auto link on the flag review page of 10k+ users? Especially when going through the "not an answer" flags there are tons of "thanks" and "question instead of answer" posts. Update: To get it working, there are only minor changes needed: Enable the script for /tools* on the various sites Add .mod-post-header to the ...

When you post a link in inline code, like The URL `http://electronics.stackexchange.com/q/33477` the link is rendered as The URL `[What is the SoC on the ARM9 board TS-7800?](http://electronics.stackexchange.com/q/33477 )` What should happen is that any URL in inline code should be ignored. Additionally, links like ...

status-declined Can you add multiple pages of comments? Currently if you have a lot of auto comments, you have to scroll to see them, but it would be nice to be able to click next and previous to see lists of about 5 comments. Also, the "see through" feature is cool, but it should be activated by a click, instead of on mouse over. One more problem: ...

See "How do comment @replies work?" and "@Peter works for Péter Török?". Comment replies will often work with unicode. EG: Péter Török can be reached by both @Peter and @Péter. These are the documented rules (Not checked against latest source) for converting user display_name to comment-reply @names: Remove any spaces. Single quotes, dots, dashes and ...

I seem to have the perfect storm of a UI at the moment: As a ♦ mod on a site, the combination of the new Beta theme, mod links and the very handy utility links results in a bit of a UI mess in Firefox and Chrome for me when a question's been edited: Taken from this question I can see that if a question is ownedByMe, you move these links onto a new line ...

status-completed Request: I see a lot of newbies post a comment saying "Thanks this worked perfect for me. It's exactly what I need" on an answer to their question, yet they do not mark the answer as accepted. [username] plugs in the username of the answerer when posting on an answer, but it would be helpful to also include an [OPusername] (or something to ...

That's a bug. a naked query should return all comments, you should not have to specify min=0 (which is basically a no-op).

status-completed Can $SITENAME$ be changed for Christianity? Here's what a comment to a new user reads: Welcome to Christianity! ... Which sounds pretty creepy. For one thing, most folks who stumble into the site are already affiliated with some faith, which might or might not be Christianity. For another, it sounds like we are a cult or a church. ...

It is something of a historical accident that this method returns markdown, however it has become too dangerous to change it. Consider it status-bydesign for 1.0 and 1.1.

You can request a user's questions and answers, and include comments=true as part of the query. This will include all of the comments for the post in question. This query is also limitable via the sort=activity and min={24 hours ago} fields. Union those comments with the ones from users/{id}/mentioned with the same sort and min fields, and you should have ...
