The complete description of the script and directions for installing it are available on my website. This script requires Firefox. You can see the previous thread on the subject here.

Here's a screenshot of the forums with the script enabled. Let me know what you think.

Edit: fixed a minor bug in the script where it sometimes wouldn't remove all stickies. If you installed the script before about two minutes ago (03/23/2005 at 09:12PM), you may want to install again, and the bug will be fixed.

I had a problem where it would remove some of the stickies at the top of the Software forum. I uninstalled it and now the stickies are back.

Excellent! Now I can remove my local web proxy and just let this do my AnandTech page rewrites instead.

How would I move the drop-down menu for the list of forums to the right side of the page, underneath the New Topic/Profile/etc buttons?

It's SUPPOSED to remove stickies. There's a configuration variable in the script that allows you to turn the stickies back on, if you want to keep the stickies but still get rid of other stuff, like the sidebar.

Edit lines 117-123 of the script to insert the dropdown box in a different place. There's no simple "align-right" kind of thing you can do, you have to go through the DOM tree and find the appropriate place for it. I put it where it is because it uses the least amount of vertical space.

Gotcha, thanks. Looks simple enough (well, to someone who knows about DOM).

Hmm, one more thing actually. Where the Private Messages link/indicator while you're viewing a forum thread list or when you're reading a thread?

Question on installation- when I open the .js page, I get text, and when I go Tools>Install user script, nothing happens.

Edit: Nevermind, it randomly worked the 4th time.

It's moved to the top right of the page, beneath the "logout" button. It's not visible while inside a thread, just when looking at forum listings.

It didn't remove all of them though. The Spyware sticky was still there.

You know what might be handy? A page somewhere with all the user-contributed AT related websites and services... Things like this script, and pics.bbzzdd.com, and telnap.com, and anything else related to the forums could be linked from there.
