Hey guys,

I got really tired of constantly needing to click on the "X new comments" button on the KS comment page, so I automated it. And added a few other cool features, just because.

This Chrome extension adds the following features to a Kickstarter campaign's comments page:

- Auto updates, every 1.5s

- Adds a reply button to the right off every comment. Clicking it adds an @User to the beginning of the comment text box.

- Highlights comments where you were @Mentioned

- It tries to find the previous comment by someone who was @Mentioned. This only works if the person's comment is already loaded on the page, and it needs an exact match (ie: "@klutz" will not match user "Klutz"). It also only uses the first word of multi-word usernames, so "@John Doe" will match any user "John ???".

Feel free to leave any feedback, comments, requests, etc.

Pretty cool but it has some bugs. Sometimes, when it refreshes, a message may be repeated up to 4 times when the writer only wrote it once. Refreshing the page clears this up but I might as well just click "view X recent messages."

Any chance to fix that issue?

Weird... I haven't experienced that on my end.

If I'm able to reproduce it, I'll see what I can do.

Edit: Oh god, it just happened to me! Holy duplicate comments batman!

I disabled all other extensions to see if that was the problem. I have a few virus protection extensions running and that may be the problem.

Nope, just did it with all other extensions disabled.

How about adding the ability to ignore comments from specific users? Troll-away, you might call it.

Hahaha, I actually thought of that after that darn useless super long FAQ comment was posted for the Nth time!

I'll see what I can do

I'll have to look into how compatible chrome and firefox extensions are. And what it takes to publish to the Firefox store (or wherever you get Firefox extensions from).

Is it that it's thin at one end, much MUCH thicker in the middle, and then thin again at the far end? laugh

More importantly, good job! I also like the comments you've been making on BGG.

Let you know that Ad Block Plus will prevent your extension from working on Kickstarter page. Had to disable it for kickstarter for it to start working. Not a big deal since there isn't any ads, but figured you should know.

*Download the Chrome Extension...

*Don't visit Kickstarter for about 20 minutes...

Oh, wow! Did Kickstarter change their comment system, this is WAY better!

Then I saw the big green sign saying I'm running the extension.

Ohhhh yeahhhhhh...


Great work!

Can you update it so the button says "Poot comment" instead of post comment?

Also, make an alarm notification if Update posted or Reward tracker (ie if True Satan unlocks again lol)?

We can host a side Kickstarter to fund your development coffee. lol

Can the @mention be tweaked to recognize names with spaces removed? So
"@JohnDoe" will match a post by "John Doe"; also can you add case-insensitive comparisons?

Oh, and is this project open source?
