I just spent a few hours developing a script for greasemonkey and thought it was worth sharing. If you're unaware,
is a really cool add-on for Firefox which allows one to apply
enhancements or fixes to your favourite website. You can find all sorts of awesome scripts on userscripts
for just about any website out there. I'm using greasemonkey with Firefox but I believe some other browsers do support it, but I can't guarantee
will work on anything else other than Firefox.
You can view the source of the script if you don't trust me, it's just over 100 lines of code, which isn't very much. It does some simple things like
replace the new smilies with the old classic smilies, fill in the space between posts, adds a toggable compact live feed box, and other miscellaneous
template tweaks. It does not remove, replace, or interfere with the adverts in any way. Keep in mind that using ad-blockers on ATS is against the
terms and conditions. And if you have any suggestions for more features let me know.
Here are some screenshots to show you what it does:
The toggable live feed box will appear in the bottom right hand corner like the one in the old ribbon so that you can quickly check out the latest
threads without having to open a new _ It should also be noted that not all the old smilies are restored, but most of them are. Since there
wasn't a gray-scale crying smiley I used the flaming smiley instead because I can't live without it. Oh and one other thing it does is give the footer
a background in the dark theme so it doesn't look weird.
