MOOOOOS ARE BELOW ME

I know that there are many threads here regarding the way streaks should be handled, I’ve read virtually all of them. Some people with for a check box next to a site you’ve already pwnd and other methods have been mentioned.

And granted ET has done is best to help us out by creating a current streak tab and whatnot. This is nothing personal and I don’t think the current system sucks. But I think it is still tricky. Referencing two tabs to see if you’re going to break your streak becomes a bit messy and confusing.

If you don’t like prologues start reading here.

Given the current setup of the game, and the libraries it uses it would be in theory to implement a “collapse pwnd” forum feature. Much like you see when extracting your moar files.

Basically rather than a user seeing Denture Chat in their list of forums they’d see an auto collapsed dimmed grey message stating “You’ve already pwnd this forum, click here to pwn again.”

I’ve screwed up my streaks on quite a few occasions on all of my characters, I just think a fairly easy to implement visual warning such as this takes out a lot of the guess work and makes the whole process more idiot friendly and reduces the amount of questions people have to as why their streak was broke.

See my comment in that thread for the real reason we’re never going to get streak info within the forums list… i.e. why it’s never gonna be “that easy”!

Well if it’s taxing on the servers then I could understand why he would wish to shy away from it. But there has got to be a better visual cue available that doesn’t create an excess of wasted bandwidth.

Sorry for spelling Streak wrong…Superbowl Sunday and such. Non-alcoholic beverages.

Didn’t know that and once again carbonated beverages may have been a reason why I misspelled.

I love this idea but I have a question: could this be done through greasemonkey?

I do all the cool coding ET's too much of a ****ing elitist to do.

I’ve created a GreaseMonkey script to handle this streak issue within the Job Board (i know that you guys are looking for the forum list, but that’s already a first step…Log in to see images!
