### lessmeaning's blog

By lessmeaning, history, 9 months ago,

Tired of this?

Or this

Or even this

There is solution for you — cf comment filter. Download this google chrome extension and enjoy clear codeforces.

Details: install extension using this guide. Choose color in popup menu, and you won't see comments by users with rating strictly lower than this color (If there is some answer by high-rated user it won't be hidden).

Maybe I'll do some of following features in future: firefox add-on, customizable list of blocked users, hide blogs (doubt this one).

UPD

Fixed bug with "Headquarters".

•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +13 It will break, but I think I can borrow some code from antimagic extension by Golovanov
 » 9 months ago, # |   +467 Make CF ratist again!
 » 9 months ago, # |   +10 Does it hide all the "orz" comments? If yes, orz lessmeaning.
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   0 Nice idea, but not yet.
•  » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   +41 Since orz is red you have to enable comments from legenrary grandmasters only to hide his comments.
•  » » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   +46 Yes, hiding all orz comments is unwelcome.
 » 9 months ago, # |   +26 We also don't want to see comments by red ,please make an extension so that we can see comments of people under specific colour .
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   +252 He probably can’t see your comment, LOL.
 » 9 months ago, # |   +94 Guys ratism isn't re-
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   +23 The rating delta gap isn't re-
 » 9 months ago, # | ← Rev. 3 →   +45 Will it block MikeMirzayanov's comments because he is unrated? Would be great if users can make a customized white list. Awesome and handy tool.
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 2 →   +20 Yea seems it's a bug, lol it won't show comments from "Headquarters" no matter what you choose in menu. I'll try to fix it in next update.UPD: Fixed
 » 9 months ago, # |   -136 bro why bro... we are also people... listen to our doubts......... we also want to improve in CF and get rating 4000 bro.upvote this so he sees guys plzz
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   +35 Upcoming tourist
 » 9 months ago, # |   0 When I choose lets say (blue) I still see comments from low rated users just because they mentioned a high-rated user, an example here.Very nice work, I have been looking for this forever.
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   +2 Another bug, thx. (I didn't really tested it carefully)
 » 9 months ago, # |   -40 Your profile picture says it all, abject!
 » 9 months ago, # |   +175 Is it possible to block Xellos' comments, specifically?
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   +38 Don't ask, figure out how to do it yourself. (44. The internet is not your personal army.)
•  » » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   +23 @Xellos:There is a reason he is called IHaveBeenToldWhatToDo
•  » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   0 Xellos and Kostka plix.
•  » » » 8 months ago, # ^ | ← Rev. 5 →   +9 I just looked at my comments and I am not that bad :(
•  » » » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   -12 Nobody said Xellos is bad yet
 » 9 months ago, # | ← Rev. 3 →   -78 Try blocking this !
 » 9 months ago, # |   0 Codeforces has already had a tool that hide the heavly-downvoted comments, why would you open the hidden comments then get disturbed of them? Is the form of the hidden comments disturb you? so your tool should be depending on the quantity of downvotes, not on the color.
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   -49 It's simple. Unrated/Div2 people have nothing valuable to actually contribute to this community.After all, you have to remember, a LGM is worth a thousand cyans.
 » 9 months ago, # |   +75 Tired of Codeforces lagging because of thousands of submissions? Here are separate servers just for elite Div1 users...Seriously, I think comments by low-rated coders can be quite good. And who is going to answer their relevant questions if everybody with higher rating (and probably answers) will block them? I think we rather need a stupidity filter, which is not so impossible with current machine learning methods.
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   +4 It's up to you use it or not
•  » » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   0 Fair enough, just wanted to bring this up for a discussion.
 » 9 months ago, # |   -11 MCFGA(make code forces great again!)
 » 9 months ago, # |   +366 Monetize your tool by making low-rated users pay to be visible!
 » 9 months ago, # |   +55 Is it possible for you to add the feature to hide users based on their Contribution like Let's if I want to hide all users having negative contribution? I think that can work as a better filter. Most times unnecessary/not useful comments are from the users with negative contribution.
•  » » 9 months ago, # ^ |   0 It's a bit harder to implement without calling cf api from extension (which is bad I think)
•  » » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   +27 lessmeaning Or Instead you can cache out the contribution for users and call your own database and update it periodically when cf is less loaded.
•  » » » 2 months ago, # ^ |   0 lessmeaning do you plan to implement this in the near future ?
 » 9 months ago, # |   +70 Everyone is inherently ratist but lessmeaning got some huge balls
 » 8 months ago, # |   -12 When are we getting a feature to hide blogs and comments by people suffering from superiority complex such as yours?
 » 8 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   +18 This is a great tool, but I don't think it would be that useful because let's say I don't understand some part of editorial, so what I do is scroll down to comments section, where someone have already asked the exact same query, I upvote the guy both happy, so to do the exact same thing I have to constantly turn on/off the feature.So, the tool is not serving its purpose.Some changes that I have in mind you could also add some features like image block, comments with spam words (such as rip,orz), most important feature i think is you could add is comment length as a filter, also if someone(with good rating) replied to comment if it is already blocked, it would be visible for all, because that person who replied gave his time to explain to everybody. Also you could make the options multiple choice. Thank you for the awesome tool and great effort.
 » 8 months ago, # |   -79 Keep waiting for the extension to hide indians, women and anime profile pics.
 » 8 months ago, # |   +152 WOW great tool, But... How to hide comments like this ?
•  » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   +8 (This reply is for people who are already using it)
•  » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   -10 Notice how he was only blue then, so I think that should tell you...
 » 8 months ago, # |   0 For me, it is interesting to see all the comments in English no matter it is good or not because it is also a way to practice English, and I think people with low ratings don't mean that they all leave meaningless comments so this is some kind of 'ratist' in my opinion.
 » 8 months ago, # | ← Rev. 2 →   -10 Here's an idea, block people with higher amount of comments and lower amount of rating, like at some ratio or something. Generally people with many comments and low rating have useless stuff to say a lot of, and are doing more commenting than practicing, while someone with few comments and lower rating will only comment reasonable responses/questions and will likely improve to higher rating soon.Is this also just an excuse to complain about those types of accounts ;). Yes.
 » 8 months ago, # |   +5 Well, it would be better if comments with more than 50(a customizable number) upvotes is always shown.
•  » » 8 months ago, # ^ |   +5 but if nobody is seeing it who's gonna upvote even if it is a useful comment .
•  » » 2 months ago, # ^ |   0 I just came here to write this thing only to notice that this has already been suggested. I second this and also would like to propose a addition that just like a comment is not shown when of a color below rating, similar thing should be with the downvotes too (I know codeforces does it but completely hiding the comment is much better than just blurring it).lessmeaning Is there a possibility of this being in the near future ?
