Formatted cv request

cv-pls Helper in chat




cv-pls Helper makes the process of closing questions easier on Stack Overflow.
There are a lot of 'bad' questions being asked and to help reduce the noise these questions should be closed as fast as possible.

This extension in no way automagically closes questions on a close vote request, but rather makes the review process better.

The extension parses [cv-pls] and [delv] requests in the chat of Stack Overflow. An example of a request is: [tag:cv-pls] https://stackoverflow.com/questions/9991825/arabic-in-extjs-grid. When the extension sees a request it will parse it into a nice onebox. Optionally it will also notify the user by sound (Stack Overflow chat @mention beep) or by avatar notification (like mention / flag popup).
