I often go through my previous questions on SO/SE and find a lot of them have long resolved discussions. Ideally, I should raise a post flag and say "all comments below are obsolete; please delete". However, quite often there are 20 comments, out of which - say - only comments 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, and 13 are obsolete. In such a case, I've to manually flag each of them as no longer needed.

This userscript helps to flag comments in bulk. Screenshot:

Do whatever you wish to do, just don't sell this for money (but may use it in a commercial software's code) or state that you made it yourself. Do post here an answer if you do something cool with this :D

This post will help you get an access token

Please first install the userscript via this link.

(this post will dynamically change based on your current state)

  • This doesn't seem to work. I get 'stackapps.com/a/7936' is not a valid uri. I edited the redirect_uri parameter to include https://, and since I just wanted to test this and wasn't sure that I wanted to a token with no expiry, I also removed ,no_expiry, and the script still doesn't work. – 3D1T0R Jul 25 '18 at 17:30
  • Perhaps the fact that it's still not working is because my token has an expiry date and the script doesn't expect that, but I don't know. In its current state, this script doesn't work for me. – 3D1T0R Jul 25 '18 at 17:32
  • @3D1T0R Hey, that's odd, I use this script everyday :( I'll check and try fix the cause. – Gaurang Tandon Jul 25 '18 at 17:37
  • I'm guessing that the ... is not a valid uri is because of a change in the SE API, and only needs to have https:// added in the link in this 'answer'. Is it possible that the reason the script's not working for me is because I removed ,no_expiry? – 3D1T0R Jul 25 '18 at 17:42
  • @3D1T0R I can confirm this issue :( Has the API changed recently? Can you point me to a meta/blog post for the same? I can promise I have not at all updated the userscript since the first release of June 24, and I am sure I was able to register for an access token last month. – Gaurang Tandon Jul 25 '18 at 18:13
  • @3D1T0R I added an access token, but it still does not work :/ I'll ask Brock once to help out. – Gaurang Tandon Jul 25 '18 at 18:38

    See my answer to your linked question. This "answer" here is not needed at all, once you use the correct approach – Brock Adams Jul 27 '18 at 8:20
  • Update: So, apparently I do actually have an access token (proof), but the script still directs me here instead showing me the UI pictured above. – 3D1T0R Jul 29 '18 at 20:57

    @3D i'm afraid i'm a bit busy this week, and will try to get back to you within the next two weeks. – Gaurang Tandon Jul 30 '18 at 9:48
  • @GaurangTandon: I'm not in a great hurry, but my inability to make this work has made me even more interested in being able to trying it out. – 3D1T0R Jul 31 '18 at 1:11
  • Still can't get this to work. I really would like to be able to at least try it. – 3D1T0R Sep 17 '18 at 7:18
