I'm making a Tampermonkey mod to restore Codex to its previous glory. I'm hoping to make it look exactly like before the Decline hit us like a brick in the face.
Then I'm restoring my notes functionality. The wideness, the fonts, the colors, the icons, it all needs to come back.
Hold tight & stop whining.

I have screenshots of the FRONT FORUM PAGE, of a PROFILE PAGE and of a THREAD PAGE.
But I don't have a screenshot of a THREAD LIST.

Kindly provide one.

I'm not saying this against Bester or anyone else in particular, only in general -- it should be publicly known that anyone with template editing access can trivially steal passwords and private messages of all users with that theme.

My previous mod required permissions to STORE and READ data (such as notes you leave on people's profiles).
But it has no permissions to SEND data (either through post requests or socket io), which would have to be declared in the header.

A person installing a tampermonkey script can be code-illiterate, but as long as they can see what permissions are used, they can figure out nobody's doing any stealing.

I'm only talking about the template admin panel. Any kind of HTML element can be put there.

If you can actually pull that off I might even forget your DNA test results. Btw:

Installation

1. Install Tampermonkey
2. Install the mod: https://github.com/BesterCode/CodexMod/raw/main/RPGCodexMod.user.js
Tempermonkey will either offer you to install it or to update it (if you had the previous version). You can update, you won't lose any notes. There's no functionality to access them yet.

3. Refresh any codex page.

P.S. Tampermonkey comes with an annoying red icon. To turn it off, go to Settings -> set Config Mode to Advanced -> set Icon Badge Info to disabled.

But nobody's ever inviting me to make a template on the dex, so that's neither here nor there.
How do you know? Just offer your help to DU like I did.

Someone test this and confirm their passwords aren't being stolen by a commie Jew, please. Thanks.

Nobody cares.

DarkUnderlord, get Bester onboard.

Alternatively just steal his edits for the official board. New potential retardoland sticky.

I need this image for when the forum has no new posts. I've never seen it myself, but I assume it exists. It's probably gray or something:

For the record, this is why 2 factor authentication is recommended for everyone these days.

I'll upload a zip with all images hopefully within the next 12 hours when I'm at a PC.

Are you going to give us the old look back, or are we stuck with this Windows Mobile candy ass shit?
Also make it so I can see who gave what ratings, not just Shit x5
