Golovanov399's blog

By Golovanov399, 2 years ago, In English

Hello everyone!

Since the masquerade of colors and ranks was announced, many pseudo-creative shitblogs from pseudo-nutellas will appear soon. Of course, some of them may be funny (especially when it's not about newbies trying to look smarter but vice versa), but one can be sick about all this situation. Usually it's not funny, but annoying.

This is why I decided to create a script which would reveal the true colors and titles. I think it does not (completely) kill the idea of changing colors: if one wants to take part in this masquerade, they can ignore my post and will still see the colors chosen by others (including their own) instead of the true ones.

This extension extends the page loading time because it downloads a ~1.6mb file. It shouldn't change the title on the profile page, but what it should do is make all in-page colors look properly. It also doesn't change the site background since killing the new year spirit is not what I want to reach.

If one prefers a userscript

Happy new year!

Interesting! If you want to avoid downloading this huge file, you might want to use the CF API instead (example). It even seems that the "rank" field for each returned user describes their real color.

    I generate this file using cf API. I'm not sure that calling user info for all users from the page will work properly, because if one changes handle then api returns something strange for his old handle, for example. But maybe I'll modify this, idk

Guys, I'm in a train for ~16 hrs from now, and I haven't properly tested it yet, so if there are any bugs, I'll fix them later

I think it was unnecessary, It doesn't matter If I am seeing someone in his true color and rating, what matters is how everyone is seeing him, this extension will only be useful when all people will use it simultaneously, and by the way, you are taking it too seriously. Chill my friend and have fun with Mike gift.

Nice work Golovanov399!

For some reason the chrome extension can't be installed ("CRX_REQUIRD_PROOF_MISSING"), I hope you look into it.
