status-completed (used this fix in V1.2.9) Some people are experiencing a problem where the auto link does not appear. This has to do with the fact that the DOM elements on which the selector is based are dynamically loaded into the DOM. The workaround for this is to change line 683 to: setTimeout(function() { $('#' + divid).find('.comment-help-link')....

feature-request status-completed (GitHub issue) Can we have the auto link appear when completing a custom "off-topic" closure reason? Bonus points if we can declare certain auto-comments to apply in this scenario (e.g. mirroring the "A" and "Q" prefix for answers and questions). Perhaps "C" for closure reasons?

status-completed There are two 'major' changes to V1.2.2 'Remote' comment source You can now define an external source for your comments, and 'import' them. This means that you don't have to manually copy comments from site to site and PC to PC. To do this, you click on the 'remote' link; enter the url for your data source; then click on 'get now'.

Inheriting indention when pressing enter What I'd like to suggest is that if you press enter, the indentation is copied from the line you're coming from, and then automatically put before the next line. This would make it a bit easier to type out code on SO. Of course this would create the problem that people who would want to end their code would be ...

Bug Report (status-completed) Go to a tag page, for example this one. You will see a question, such as this: Find the vote and answer count on the left. Click the vote count. You will then get a message in the error console that says Post ID not found! Please report this at http://stackapps.com/q/3082/9699 So now I'm reporting it.

status-completed Why not use this to add the button? It preserves the integrity of other buttons, and ensures that a button does not get added twice (for example, when in the review section, it will only add the buttons to the editors which don't have it. //params: text: text of button //params: callback: a function which takes id of textarea as argument(...

Good idea. There's a few minor niggles, though: Don't use unsafeWindow, this will break in Chrome and will not even work in Firefox+Greasemonkey if the effective @grant changes. Avoid leading * wildcards in @includes, if you can help it. This is a big performance hit. @match limits the wildcard scope and performs much better and reports the sites/...

Future plans Plans for the long-term future of SOUP 2.0: Break up the monolithic SOUP.user.js file into multiple files, separating the actual fixes from the framework and metadata.

bug Clicking on the icon won't reveal the comment-box anymore. One has to click the "add comment" link, for the comment box to appear, then click on the script icon to add the reply signature into the revealed comment-box.

This is great. Love it. Thanks man! Suggestions for additional taglines: I'm so glad you asked me that, but I have no clue how to solve it. Have a Calvin & Hobbes strip instead! I have no idea. However, legend has it that reading Calvin & Hobbes strips will increase your problem solving ability so maybe that can help you. I have no idea. But here'...

Inline tag edit requires 10k rep, but 2k rep is enough to edit questions (therefore, do retags). However, inline API is much easier - you just do the post, which contains tags only. Doing full edit requires accessing postable questions body. I've done quick modification to your script. It's a draft, but working for me... it activates edit mode, waits until ...

Ok, not a answer but some visuals how to get it going for dummies like me. Install Greasemonkey (for Firefox) or Tampermonkey (for Chrome) - I'm using Greasemonkey for this post, but it's the same for Tampermonkey -- you will get a new icon on the top right of your menu bar AFTER restarting Firefox. Install the Script: While you are still logged in to ...

feature-request status-completed Can you implement some kind of support for those of us who are fine with any pronoun, i.e., have no preference? I realise I could probably write something like don’t/care into my profile, but that would be weird for those who visit my profile and are not aware of this script.

status-completed (something equivalent, anyway) I see a couple of comments here suggesting that Benjol is thinking of making the Welcome message configurable. This is a formal request for that feature. On Skeptics.SE, we have a meta-post which is a Welcome to New Users FAQ, and explains some of the ways Skeptics.SE differs from other Stack Exchanges. I ...

Foreword: I have absolutely no idea what I did. The above script did not work in Chrome. Therefore, I read through some documentation about user-scripts and found that Chrome does not support unsafeWindow. Digging further, I found this answer where @tghw describes how to mimic the behavior. Combining your selector with the approach in the answer gives a ...

Not sure which posts you should setup with this script? I made a quick SEDE query to help you find common duplicate target posts for your tag of choice. https://data.stackexchange.com/stackoverflow/revision/909952/1132398/most-common-duplicate-targets-for-a-tag TopItems it the max items you want back. Probably good to leave this less than 50. TargetTag is ...

The following performs better: @match is much less resource intensive than regex includes. Not all platforms support regex includes. Run at doc start so that don't have to wait for most of the page to load before redirecting. Use location.replace so that browser history is not filled with junk pages and back button works as expected. All SE sites are ...

Excellent script, much needed. I adjusted the following to make it work: changed live by $(document).on( 'keydown', 'textarea[name=comment]', function(e) {}) added metakey so it works on Macs (e.ctrlKey||e.metaKey) And other improvements: only runs when viewing a question or in the Review/Task pages. changed @include by @match using a format that catches ...

The comment linking isn't working for answers. On questions it gives links of the form: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/questions/114650/unfair-and-abusive-suspension-because-of-asking-for-help#comment-298448 but on answers it gives links of the form: http://meta.stackoverflow.com/a/114651/59303 I suspect that the new answer link format is throwing it out....
