About

Following Overcharged (inspired by a MSE feature request) is a userscript that provides a set of features improving the "follow" feature.

Current version includes:

Feature Default
Auto-follow of questions disabled
Auto-follow of answers disabled
Auto-follow posts on upvoting disabled
Auto-follow posts on downvoting disabled
Auto-follow posts on voting to close disabled
Auto-follow posts on flagging disabled
Auto-follow posts after editing (inline) disabled
Auto-follow posts upon bookmarking disabled
Auto-follow posts upon commenting disabled
'Unfollow all' feature to unfollow all posts enabled
'Unfollow all' by type (questions or answers only) enabled

This is a "living" project, so the feature set is likely to be expanded upon in future versions.

The userscript uses the shared configurer for UserScripters projects as a peer dependency. Please install it if you want to be able to change the default settings. This is how the configuration UI looks like:

Changes made to settings when using the configurer are live and do not require the page to be reloaded.

Unfollow all

When visiting one's profile "following" tab, an "unfollow all" button will be added to the right of the action list. Upon clicking it, a modal for initiating the unfollow procedure is loaded. The "Start" button launches the process which can be stopped at any time via the "Abort" button.

The script keeps track of the posts that were unfollowed, so unless the page is reloaded, there is a way to re-follow all posts by clicking the "Undo" button. The re-follow action can be stopped at any time via the same "Abort" button too.

NB! Turning on the "reload on done" option makes the changes truly permanent
