v1.2 Find good questions to answer.
The script will filter questions in real time, in all Stack Exchange sites questions pages,
hiding them by score, views, user reputation and accepted answers. It only runs on pages where questions are being listed: Homepage, Unanswered and Questions.
Depending on the page and the configuration, very few questions will show up, and chances are good that they are interesting. If somebody already gave a negative vote, why look at it? If it's a new user, sorry to say, but very few write a good question or display research skills. Anyway, this is a tool focused on Power Answerers, who already saw too much.
♦ The diamond icon was on the very stack sprite.
So took the liberty to use it and make our very own moderator menu :)
Adjust the votes, views and reputation thresholds, select if questions with accepted answers should be hidden, enable the filter and save. To disable, just uncheck the Enable filter option and save.
The ranges can be modified using the button (?):
- For now, the script is only compatible with Chrome.
- A browser extension for managing user scripts is required, like Tampermonkey or other similar extensions.
- After installing the extension, clicking the "download / install" button below should bring up a dialog asking if you want to install the script.
Unfortunately, I couldn't manage to make the sliders work on Firefox. I'm by no means an expert on userscripts, all contributions and forks are welcome.
