a simple way to hide all Mist/Mister posts

below you can find my script for Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey addon for FF/Chrome which hides all Mist/Mister posts
on pages search.php?search_id=active_topics and search.php?search_id=newposts

Firefox/Greasemonkey:

Code: Select all

// ==UserScript==
// @name     AtariForum.com - MiST
// @version  1
// @grant    none
// @include    http://www.atari-forum.com/search.php?search_id=active_topics
// @include    http://www.atari-forum.com/search.php?search_id=newposts
// @require     http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.0/jquery.min.js
// @run-at   document-end
// ==/UserScript==


$("li").show().has("a:contains('MiST')").hide();


Chrome/Tampermonkey :

Code: Select all

// ==UserScript==
// @name     AtariForum.com - MiST
// @version  1
// @grant    none
// @include    http://atari-forum.com/search.php?search_id=active_topics
// @include    http://www.atari-forum.com/search.php?search_id=active_topics
// @include    http://atari-forum.com/search.php?search_id=newposts
// @include    http://www.atari-forum.com/search.php?search_id=newposts
// @require     http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/2.1.0/jquery.min.js
// @run-at   document-end
// ==/UserScript==


(function() {
    'use strict';
    var $ = window.jQuery;
    $("li").show().has("a:contains('MiST')").hide();
})();

Good idea, but unfortunately it does not work on my setup (Chrome/Tampermonkey) :( Syntax checking complains that "'$' is not defined.".

I will check that with Chrome

Actually I checked it only under FF and I just assumed it would be working fine under Chrome.

I am still for outsourcing them completely from AF due to the sheer volume of posts by now.

This makes sense to me - it is its own stand alone product - it should have its own forum.

My issue is I consume this website via active topics RSS feed - can an active topics RSS feed be setup without including the Mister subforum(s)?

I want the old times back as well. It's becoming extremely annoying and I have no interest whatsoever in MIST/MISTer.

In my case, it would be great if AF had the ability to select which forums to follow. On AtariAge, I only follow the Atari 8-bit and ST forums. I ignore all of the other forums. It would be great to do the same thing here.

I must have the forum set up differently to you all as I've never noticed an abundance of MIST/er related posts and they certainly don't kill my vibe :)

Personally i'm really interested in the work Master of Gizmo and Ijor have done and I will continue to be so as long as old ST prices continue to ramp up on ebay :) I think it's really fascinating technology even if I don't understand it!

just my 2pence worth.

I could remove all the non-ST/Falcon/TT specific fora from the Active topics feed. Would that help?

It would help if they are excluded from the "Unread posts" selection aswell.
I'm in for any RSS feed without them included too.

I currently have the feed URL feed.php listed in my feedly.

I have to agree with all the others. The MiST project/scene is great, I
even owned one (for a shore while) but I would much rather come to AF
and read it like the "good ole days", before the MiST project came along.

Yep, Ijor's cycle-exact 68000 / ST core made MiSTer much more interesting. With the old FPGA ST core, overscan and other timing critical stuff was flaky, but with Ijor's core they should work fine, so it's like a new ST with (in some ways) improved peripheral support (I just hope somebody would provide them ready-made, like Lotharek does/did for MiST).

As to what's visible e.g. with unread posts option etc... IMHO nicer would be an account specific setting / checkbox for each of the top level categories on whether they would be listed. Or would that be too much work / overhead?

T

I generally agree with you, but actually very often I check "search_id=active_topics" as an unlogged user. The same story with RSS, they are anonymous.

Would be cool to have separated both of them for Atari and NonAtari subjects.

No thanks.

This choice helps the folks who want only the native things, but not those who want to read both. Per user preference if it’s easy to do, or script like this if not seem fine to me.

Maybe time those mister guys get an own forum instead. Im also bugged about those

The mist was an atari and amiga compatible. The mister project killed the original mist and the Mister maintainer doesn't even like the ST. It's a mystery why it belongs on this forum at all.

There are phpbb plugins that allows user-defined newsfeeds, maybe Dal should look into those.

Yeah, skipping all the mist(er) related posts is my daily routine when clicking on "Unread posts". :)

I agree that ijor's post about the cycle exact core has been of a great interest to me but that is one post out of a thousand.

I understand it can be irritating, but on the other hand I'm still on atari-forum because of the MiST (and yes, the ST is for the Atari part of it). I have for example no interest in TT or Falcon related threads... But I'm interested to read about new games, music or demos on the Atari ST!

I don't mean any bad feelings towards the Mister guys, but I think when > 50% of a forums posts are not on the main subject of the forum (Atari 16/32 bit Computers), perhaps they need to be migrated to a new forum. As I type this the active topics page has 50 posts, of which 26 are in the MiST / MiSTer forums, and 2 more in the FGPA Chat forum.
