I’m not really sure what’s up with userstyles.org lately. I checked it just now though, and it appears to be working normally. I did a search for “blf” and it returned several results including both of mine.

About hiding posts, it only needs one line per user. There’s no need to repeat the same UID more than once and if it’s only one person then only the last line is needed. The lines before that, ending in a comma, are optional in case people want to hide more than one person.

Or, instead of hiding people, it can be used to style posts on a per-person basis. For example, sb’s posts are usually important so I have those styled with a green banner and a bigger brighter font to make sure I’ll notice.

I haven’t looked into styling thread titles in the list, but it likely would need selectors based on text content instead of class or ID or anything like that… so it may require really recent CSS features or javascript.

Stylus tangent, non blf

wanted to do hide the Animated Banner at the top of Netflix
this works for me:

.jawBoneContainer
{ display:none !important;
}

It’s typically a lot easier to do this with an ad blocker plugin. Some have the ability to right-click on the thing you want to remove, select “hide this”, and then drag a slider to select exactly how much to remove. Same effect, but it only takes a few seconds.

thanks
I used adblocker to determine the .JawboneContainer label to use in Stylus, to hide the opening banner on Netflix..

have not learned how to use adblocker to block that particular animaterd banner element on Netflix

I do have all the banner ads on a couple websites blocked, thanks to adblock right clicks.. but for some reason, it was not that easy with netflix, so I had to use Stylus

I dont have a good understanding of the apps..
and
the netflix style I posted has an unintended consequence,

I lost the ability to see individual previews that I actually want to see..

thanks for the intro to stylus
ive not even scratched the surface, but so far so good

It looks like an external dependency broke today, so I did a quick minor theme update on userstyles.org.

Are you able to show what changes you made exactly?

I don’t want to re-download the updated theme from userstyles.org because it’s going to override all the customizations I’ve made on my end.

Thanks.

If you don’t see any problems on your end though, there shouldn’t be any need to update. I updated it because the subscription page had sad faces all over from a broken tinypic link.

Coscar, I updated and it was so easy I couldn’t believe it! I clicked on the Styles “S” in the bar at the upper right of the screen, then clicked options, it opened up in a new window and I saw an updates button, clicked it and it pretty rapidly downloaded the update TK applied…piece of cake. Closed the new window and right before my eyes the yellow smiley top-of-their-heads vanished. Big Smile

Thanks Dale………. I tried that and it seemed like it did d/l an update, but it didnt apply for some reason…..Now all I see is an ‘update styles’ button that doesnt seem to do anything……. its saying Sept 10 was the last update but its still there….. just my ‘murphy’s law’ life.

Hmm… not sure what failed, but I pushed up a really minor change just now so it should be possible to attempt an update again.

If that still doesn’t work, it might be necessary to copy/paste the code into the edit widget in Stylus. Or maybe uninstall and reinstall the theme. Not sure which would be better for forcing an update.

Update works fine for me. Done 2 days ago, on Firefox browser. No more bright yellow bald heads at the top of the “Recent posts” page. Thanks, ToyKeeper!

FYI, that one offending link (http://i49.tinypic.com/344twz9.png) is in one other place inside your CSS. You can see it when you go to forum statistics at the bottom of this page:

Thanks, I almost never look at the /forum page. Anyway, the stats box is fixed now.

Once in a while I like to check the members list, it’s always staggering to me how many members we have and how so few are actually online. Getting close to 30,000 members, rare to see 100 online at one time.

Just now I looked, we have 29,660 members with 49 signed in at present. Kinda sad really that we can’t get higher participation than that. Not many giveaways happening at the moment I guess…
