Would this be possible?

Postby 72o on Fri Nov 13, 2009 9:47 am

I put a suggestion in the Suggs & Bugs forum, but it didn't get any response, so I thought I'd ask here.

Would it be possible to create a script that automatically went through the scoreboard and foed people based on whatever criteria you give it? Such as: turns taken < 95%, score < 1000, rating < 4.0?

It seems like this would get a whole lot of use, considering the number of times folks have suggested a rank/score filter for games, and the number of times I have found myself foed by someone simply because my turns percentage was too low. I guess today they are going through the scoreboard manually and foeing people, but I'm wondering if one of you greasemonkey geniuses could create something to automate this?

It is possible to do so, but I will not simply because I am against foeing people without proper reason (and turn count/score is not a proper reason).

Fair enough. I'm not sure I would use it anyway, I just wondered if it were possible because it would eliminate all the requests for preventing cooks from joining games.

Although I respect Dako's opinion, I still think there would be value in this script. Can some of the other greasemonkey experts chime in on how difficult this will be to do? I know almost nothing about this stuff, but I am willing to learn if it's something I can figure out on my own.

Someone could probably make it, but I would guess that lack would quash any script like that. CC has consistently rejected similar suggestions, for reasons of inclusiveness.

If you know javascript I can tell you how to do it.

Basically - parse whole scoreboard and find the ones that meet your criteria. Then call tons of get requests to foe people page with proper parameters - voila, you are done.

And if you don't know javascript, you can start here! http://www.w3schools.com/js/default.asp
