The current threshold for posts on the front page is -4. Often times, that threshold is not high enough: many posts in the -3...0 range are low-quality.

This simple script hides posts with a score less than 0 from the front page.

It was inspired by this post on Meta Stack Overflow.


You can download the script from Greasy Fork (Direct Link) or view the source code.


See the tag wiki for details on userscript installation.


See the Greasy Fork changelog.

  • I'd love to, but half the time, it doesn't work in userscripts.

  • Maybe you're using it wrong, did you replace lines 28-29 with questions[i].hidden = true;?

  • Interesting. It refused to work before, but now, of course, it works perfectly: I'll give it a try. (I'll also have to update this one). By the way, questions[i].hidden = "hidden"; is what seems to work.

  • Who knows? Whenever I've tried to use that before, it has ended badly. Nevertheless, it's fixed.
