In short, I am working on a web extension (Chrome/FireFox/Opera/etc) that will add various features to Bleeping Computer.
But I need your help, since I am fairly new to the site.
 
 

So I ask, what features would you like to see added to an extension like this?

(All Open Source: https://github.com/xadamxk/BCX)

Examples of features I've already completed:

  • Online Sorting (memberlist on Index page)
  • Spoiler
  • Activity Label (Shows what pages a user is browsing via profile)
  • Spoiler
  • Collapse Sections (Show on Hover)
  • Mask Location (Always shows on your profile that you are on the index page)
  • Hide Alert Banner (Hides the News/Deal Banner)

My Current ToDo List:

  • Citations (Allows you to cite a thread, section, or page on BC and copies it to your clipboard)
  • Canned Responses (Allows you to have default responses that will be replaces by a key ex. [response1] - > Hello World!)
  • User Notes (Allows you to create custom notes for each user)
  • BC Toolbar (Shortcut sections/pages and add them to a toolbar that is located on the top of every page)
  • PM From Post (Adds a 'PM From Post' button to posts that allows you to PM someone without leaving the page you are on)

Thanks. Will think of anything that I think could be useful for the users.

One thing, would it be possible to poll a rss feed for new news items that a member can see as a notification ? That may be useful.

Many of our members focus on the forums and miss all the great content posted to the home page.

Yeah, it's definitely possible.
I'd just have to see a couple examples so I can implement it in the best way possible.

There are already RSS feed extensions out there, but if there needs to be something custom about it, I could definitely do it.

Just click the 'cite' button and text will be formatted accordingly.

I published what features I had completed just now in version v0.0.0.2b

PM From Posts wasn't finished, sorry; if I have time to finish that, I may.
