I'm having trouble getting one of the GreaseMonkey scripts that Shog9 wrote to work (The DailyRepLimit tracker). Should I post the question on how to fix it here or on superuser? GreaseMonkey in general is working, because the question dashboard is working.

The issue: Question marks instead of symbols. This is in Firefox 3.5.5.

Image FAIL

Screenshot is from my page, works the same way on everyone's page.

    Hey, shog9 has his own tag! Just beat him till he answers, Ross.

  • Aha! Let me guess: you copy/pasted the script into a text editor instead of clicking on the link to the one I host. And didn't have your text editor configured for UTF-8 (or any other proper Unicode encoding)...

    I've updated the script listing to use an entity (●) instead of the literal character - update your local script and see if that doesn't take care of the problem...

Find the link. If he posted it here, add a response to his question or answer. If it's on userscripts.org, there's facilities there for discussion and reporting issues.


Well, you could always email me I suppose...

Failing that, describe in a comment exactly how it's not working. Or, since you have this question sitting here anyway, do it here and include screenshots of a Reputation page with hand-drawn circles outlining the bit where the rep cap summary was supposed to show up but isn't.

  • @Shog9: Is the script accurate for your account? I installed it using the link you provided and it's telling me I don't even have the Epic badge yet, which I do.

  • @Bill: not sure it's accurate for anyone's account... It's just using the raw data (rep by day) from the rep graph, and there's a really good chance that doesn't jive with what's used for actual badge calculations (for instance, if you hit the cap and then down-voted something, the graph would show only a 199 increase and the script wouldn't count it). Note the comments on the original thread - plenty of folks initially awarded the badges who the script listed at well under the threshold.
