Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.

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 '15 at 17:53
