Forum Cloud v. 0.7 by deviant-garde Forum Cloud v. 0.7 by deviant-garde

NOTE: this is currently broken due to Sta.sh Writer, but the script is being replaced with Comment CLOUD, which will be able to be used anywhere on the website instead of just the forums. If you want updates ask me or check my journals/this deviation.



Description


This script makes it easier to use emoticons on the Forums by taking advantage of Emote CLOUD This script will add:


  • A database of emote codes, like the ones for the official dA emotes, that can be used for user-created emotes. User-created emotes are just deviations. For example, you can type :8Bdance: in a comment to use .

  • A menu that displays these emotes alongside who made them and their vote count.

  • The ability to add an emote made by you or someone else to everybody's database of emote codes, and the ability to vote up/down existing ones. Multiple emotes can share the same code and the one with the highest votecount will be displayed when that code is used.




Releases



Version 0.7 (Jan 13, 2013) [current]

  • Numerous bugs with the interface were fixed. Notable ones include:
    • The links at the bottom of the really big comment box on the bottom of the thread no longer disappear when you click them if you didn't type something in first.

    • When you'd mouse over the deviation or vote links for an emote in the Forum Cloud menu, it would flicker over and over again. That's been fixed.

    • The Forum Cloud links for new threads used to display incorrectly.

  • Search has been implemented! Type something in the search box and hit enter, and it'll display emotes that match that text, ordered by vote count and alphabetical order.

  • There is now a built in link to the Emote Cloud.



Version 0.6.1 (Jul 30, 2012)
  • A very minor issue was fixed in Chrome which made it so the emote and menu info didn't disappear when you moved your mouse away from a menu item.


Version 0.6 (Jul 29, 2012)
  • Emote images now only show when hovering over their respective menu item.

  • Clicking on an emote code will add it to the text box.

  • You can now vote for public emotes. Click + to vote up an emote, and - to vote one down. The Emote Cloud only allows you a single vote per emote.

  • There is now a "view" link to view the deviation of the emote submitted.

  • New "Help" menu button.

  • Improved error handling mechanisms.

  • The menu shouldn't be noticeably lagging anymore.

  • It's prettier. :dummy:



Version 0.5.1 (June 5, 2012)
  • Fixed a severe bug which made it impossible to obtain a new emotes list.

  • In some browsers, the link to install Forum Cloud didn't work.


Version 0.5 (May 21, 2012)
  • Added forum cloud links to the message center and the box used to create a new thread.

  • Fixed glitch in the message center where posts that weren't to a forum had forum cloud enabled.



Version 0.4.1 (May 16, 2012)
  • I've re-added the links to the big commenting box.

Note: Not to be a whore or anything, but if you want to track the updates to this script it would be a good idea to watch me so I can automatically notify you of updates in my journal. I might add an updater within the script itself eventually but not anytime soon.

Hey DG I am keeping an eye on this because I would really like to see a completed Comment-Cloud. I have been having fun using my own custom emotes on the site but I think if this extension is implemented it will be really helpful since I won't have to keep searching out my own emotes to use them.

so yeah no pressure but please finish the extension so I can be lazy

Yeah, I noticed recently that searching really isn't good enough when you have an option like this. I'll be sure to work this out nice and soon :nod: In fact, if you're eager to use it, you could help me test it too.

My Forum Cloud isn't working. :nuu:

Did dA do some code changes or something very recently? :\

Thanks for indeed letting me know. What exactly is going wrong? Can you be specific about the errors or glitches you're running into? This is the best time to report them since I'm going to release 0.8 soon.

By the way, if you know anybody else who uses this and who may have ran into issues themselves, don't hesitate to direct them to me. :D

It's enabled on my Greasemonkey, but I do not see it appearing anywhere on my comment box for forum replies. It only had to have happened recently though, since I use things like lawoo all the time and I just noticed within the past day or two that it stopped working. I made sure I had v0.7 too.

I also noticed a couple other dA scripts by others not working this week or so, like one that allows me to see group messages in my toolbar. It may or may not be related to dA coding?

I use Firefox.

Well, Forum Cloud works for me and while I do occasionally have fixes (that I didn't remember were part of the next upcoming version) which other people don't for a good while, I don't know what exactly it might be that broke it so much. I'm going to check into that further because I probably noticed the error and fixed it and didn't record it properly... I need to get Forum Cloud on GitHub so that doesn't keep happening!

Anyway, I do know for a fact that I had to update a URL or two where Forum Cloud was supposed to activate (like the Message Center, which is no longer at my.deviantart.com but www.deviantart.com) but any other odds and ends which I didn't already catch I'd need to investigate a little further. I can't remember if Forum Cloud broke for me so spectacularly since 0.7 was released. I can send you the current pre-release and you can see if those bugs clear up. Check your notes in the next minute. :paranoid:

Okay, so I just posted a forum thread, and the links for Forum Cloud were showing up at the bottom of the screen (under the main submit box thing).

The message centre's URL changed?? Ah, so it has. I didn't notice til you pointed it out. It might just be that. Might also be why the other script isn't working.

Well don't forget that it works IN the threads too. On forum.deviantart.com and comments.deviantart.com as well. It doesn't just work in the message center.

And yeah, I noticed after they added the sidebar to the forums that the links got a little screwed up for new threads. I'm going to fix that too; thanks for reminding me.

I usually use it in the message centre I think is the problem. :shifty: It is working regularly in the forum, though like you said the link is funny at the bottom of the thread submit box.

(I have a script disabling the sidebar so the links on forum.deviantart.com seem to be working normally.)

What kind of new horror have you brought to the forums? But seriously, it's a great idea so people don't have to search all over dA for an appropriate emote.

One small problem though. Currently running Version 23.0.1271.97 m for Chrome. Menu shows up when I respond to another comment in a thread, but it won't open if I want to add a response of my own.

By "add a response of your own", do you mean use that really big comment box at the bottom of the page? I'm gonna look into that, thank you.

Ah, that's good. I should either release a 0.6.2 or make sure I hurry up even more on this script. People have been notoriously poor at giving me feedback about it so who knows who else had problems with it. If you know anybody else who actually uses this damned thing that has had similar issues, tell them that they need to type something in that last comment box before they click the Forum Cloud or Refresh Emotes link, or it won't react properly.

deviant-garde Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2012
It doesn't work on Internet Explorer. You'd need a userscript manager. I can imagine a way it could, by making the entire script a bookmark, but I've never tried it and that would be very inconvenient as you would have to click the bookmark ANY time you used one of the custom emotes. You should just get Firefox or Chrome because they're better browsers in general and are doubtlessly more customizable and secure.

deviant-garde Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2012
Well, now whenever you post on the forums you'll have access to the Emote Cloud database, as I linked in the description. You can now use all the custom emotes (there are over 9,200 in this database which you now have access to, btw) just by putting the code in like any regular emote. You can also look at the list of emoticons by clicking the "Forum Cloud" link on the bottom of any reply box you open.

Well, something I probably should have mentioned by now is that because of some recent updates Google made to chrome, you may have to download the script and open it in chrome to install it. [link]

Please though, let me know if it works anyway. If it doesn't, a lot of fucking people are gonna be disappointed that a DD is broken for them. :lol:
