What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Firefox and Opera users...

So I got the itch for another greasemonkey script - this time to retrieve the user details for any given user in a question without having to go to their page. Perhaps some of you will find this useless, but I happen to find an interest in this type of meta-information.

Instructions are simple, just click the users gravatar from within a question and the details will slide in. Click the icon again to slide them back up and out of sight.

Install: http://sampsonresume.com/labs/stackoverflow/icon-informer.user.js

Runs on Stack Overflow, Meta, SuperUser and ServerFault.

This userscript currently does not work in Opera. – random Feb 15 '10 at 7:17
Great! How about some title text on icon and also some kind of loading indicator (some texts saying loading is fine for me) ? (because its take around 5 seconds to load for first time on a page in my browser) – YOU Feb 15 '10 at 7:22
Nice one! Any particular reason why you restricted this to post signatures (as opposed to e.g. the question overview)? – balpha Feb 15 '10 at 7:36
Doesn't seem to work for CW, anyone can confirm? Nice work though :) – o.k.w Feb 15 '10 at 7:44
Won't work on CW because that is direct to the revision history, not to one particular author. @okw – random Feb 15 '10 at 7:50
Opera has native userscript support out of the box. For those written well. – random Feb 15 '10 at 8:59
Doesn't work with Greasemonkey on Chrome 4, but still, very cool! Wait, do you click the gravatar picture itself or the text box? – Maxim Zaslavsky Feb 15 '10 at 9:16
Gravatar - from the text: "Instructions are simple, just click the users gravatar from within a question..." – Sampson Feb 15 '10 at 14:07
Script now works in Opera and Firefox... – Sampson Feb 15 '10 at 15:02
can this please be moved to stackapps.com/?tab=scripts as necessary? Or flag for deletion. – Jeff Atwood Jul 31 '11 at 22:53
as @JeffAtwood said this should be on StackApps. VTCing as off topic. – ᔕᖺᘎᕊ Aug 5 at 17:53
