Scripts & Things

I think I will use this area to list scripts and things that I don't really want as deviations, since they're not really great works of art, just small things that do simple things.

:bulletblue: Move Complaints - Haha sorry, but this is just too stupid and simple to be a deviation. All this does, now, is move the complaints forum up to the top of the forum list for community. Here's the script, works in Firefox and Chrome.

:bulletgreen: Better forum styling - this makes the forums a tad better, well in my opinion anyway. Makes some links normally dark green, blue on hover, and lightens visited links (handy for knowing what you've read before) and it also tightens things up, kills that status forum box, and styles the forum search to look right. Get it here, and install into a new blank Stylish skin.

:bulletblue: Forum - Mark recent - this is based on an old script (…) and it will show the order of comments on a thread, and even let you jump to the latest 5 replies (per page, not per thread) if you hover over the far right of the page. Get it here. Works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

:bulletblue: Points Converter -This just puts a converter into your shop menu, and lets you input a points number, or US dollar amount, and it will convert the number into the other "currency" for you. Just note, the shop menu will stay open if you have anything inputted in the boxes. Remove any numbers and mouseout of the menu to make it close back up. Install here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

:bulletblue: Normal Deviation Clicks -This keeps dA from loading the "faster" AJAX links, things like, and instead loads the more normal link. What you see when you click links. This solves a bunch of bugs that happen because of the superbrowse way of loading deviations, and I just personally find it a much better way to load deviations. Install it here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

:bulletblue: dA Journal - Saved Text - This saves your text from journal to journal so you don't have to copy/paste tags in. It works on your create new journal page, and it will save your text once you hit Publish Entry, or the Update Saved Text button on the bottom right. Works with Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome, install from here.

:bulletpurple: Ignore people in chat rooms without SuperdAmn - this is something that may be useful if you ever don't have SuperdAmn, and just must ignore people. Just open this page and then copy the text in that gray box and bookmark it (or just paste it into the URL of your chat page and hit enter) and when you're on the chats, you can click that bookmarklet to ignore people. Just remember, capitalization is important, and to ignore more than one person, simply put a comma (,) in between the names, with no spaces.

:bulletblue: deviation Background Color - This lets you color the background of deviations pages, which may be useful or preferable to you. You can even save that color so all deviation pages will have your set background color. But, it will only work on pages, not the AJAX #dabc123 type URL's. You can click the title of the deviation to get to the normal URL, or install my script that does this for you above. Install it here, works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

:bulletpurple: Bookmarklet for easy dA embeds - This will let you easily turn videos into the proper dA embed code. Copy the text here and then bookmark it, then click it and paste in your video URL.

:bulletblue: Forum Preview - This lets you preview forum threads. Hover over the eyes to the right of threads to see what the original post is. Get it here works in Firefox (with Greasemonkey) and Chrome.

Based on some feedback, I spaced out the journal a bit and darkened the text so as to not be so straining on the eye, and used a slightly different background image for the text with a bit more than just noise in it.  I also made the menu images slide instead of spin which is a bit less annoying :slow:  And I've noticed there's really no :hover kind of thing on mobile browsers :o  Or maybe I'm not used to phones and don't know what the equivelent is there.  Anyway, I might try to see if I can make the menu click activated, but really I don't even think it gets used at all, so who knows.  I'll play with it more later.

Changes & Shit

So I decided to redo my journal skin.  I'm much more a fan of dark skins and only made the other one lighter to blend in with all the other things on the page.  But I figured change is good (at least some times) and I wanted to start something new here, what with my life being a bit different now.  I plan to post more on that later, but first a new skin.

The skin is basically the same as my old one, just with some color changes.  But now I've added a share menu.  I've never been the biggest fan of idiot-proof share buttons plastered all over the internet and I block them—even this journal's share buttons—with uBlock Origin.  But it seems that the world loves its easy one-click sharing of shit, so might as well join the party, eh?  Mostly though, it was just fun to make and it provides a bit of flash to an otherwise boring skin (journals are for text, not flash).

Anywho, I'm sure I'll change the colors around slightly, but I think I have it mostly where I like it.  I'd love to get the menu to transition a bit more with fading or sliding menu windows, but I haven't spent much time on that yet.  And I still have to clean up the CSS and remove a ton of old stuff from my last skin.  Oh, and while I was making this skin, I also made a Greasemonkey script to simply add a button to the right of the zoom button up above when you're writing a journal.  Clicking it selects this skin and fills in all the HTML required to make it show right and also adds in the share links, since they change with each journal (here's hoping I got the right journal ID and it links to the right page :B)  So all in all, I had a fun time doing it.

For any of you journal skin creators or design people, I'd love to hear some ideas on what you'd change or how to improve it :)

◄ The deviantART electricjonny ►
I spend most of my time on the forums and chat rooms. I love hitting the forums and having fun there, I usually hang out in the Suggestions forum and Software forum.

You can also find me in the #h3lp and #seniors chat room.

◄ The real life electricjonny ►
My real name is Jon Spence. I'm a 30 year old student studying Television and Digital Media Production. So I know a lot about video and things like that. I started studying photography in high school, and have loved it ever since. I mainly shoot with a Canon PowerShot SX100 IS. My hobbies include taking things apart and experimenting with electronic things, and biking. I like the outdoors and I used to camp a lot.

So art wise, I'm mainly a photographer, but I like to do video compositing too.
