    Probably one of the worst things with this site is looking at pictures from 2007 of people that haven't even been on here since 2013.
    Pretty lame

    Yes I agree it should go; it's not good that I cringe every fucking time I see some Emo/Scene person, people who thought it'd be romantic to kiss/makeout and take a photo of it, and the people trying be all "omg I'm so fucking random guis!!11! hurr hurr hurr"

    Instead of removing it, make it so that it doesn’t show users who haven’t logged in for over a month or so.

    You all do realize there's no one here making any changes like that, right?

    There are, but I suspect it’s a half speed person suffering from narcolepsy who’s only awake about 20 minutes a day

    When's the last time anything like this was addressed? It must be before I joined.

    Ask @skrinkle or @Mantwon - or one of the Nexopia admin accounts. They’d be able to answer that much better than I, a lowly forum moderator :)

    Meh. I've not seen site suggestions being implemented, or any kind of ongoing administrative presence at all, and if you can't name any then you've not seen any either.

    I know that sort of thing is what @Mantwon does, and one of the reasons he came back

    If you use Greasemonkey (a Firefox extension), you can use the following script I wrote to kill the spotlight, along with a handful of other annoying "features:"

    Code:
    // ==UserScript==
    // @name  Kill Necropia Stupidity
    // @version  1
    // @grant  none
    // @include  https://forums.nexopia.com/*
    // ==/UserScript==
    var idiot1 = document.getElementsByClassName("style32");
    var idiot2 = document.getElementsByClassName("style33");
    var nextitle = document.getElementsByClassName("userTitle");
    var nexbanner = document.getElementsByClassName("userBanner");
    var nexspot = document.getElementsByClassName("xmgCarouselContainer");
    
    for (n = 0; n < idiot1.length; n++)
    {
       idiot1[n].style.color = "inherit";
    }
    for (n = 0; n < idiot2.length; n++)
    {
       idiot2[n].style.color = "inherit";
    }
    for (n = 0; n < nextitle.length; n++)
    {
       nextitle[n].style.display = "none";
    }
    for (n = 0; n < nexbanner.length; n++)
    {
       nexbanner[n].style.display = "none";
    }
    for (n = 0; n < nexspot.length; n++)
    {
       nexspot[n].style.display = "none";
    }

    Previously I was using my adblocker to kill the sparkly username effects, but here's an update to my Greasemonkey script that will take care of that, as well as being more efficient and general:

    Code:
    // ==UserScript==
    // @name  Kill Necropia Stupidity
    // @version  1
    // @grant  none
    // @include  https://forums.nexopia.com/*
    // ==/UserScript==
    var user = document.getElementsByClassName("username");
    var nextitle = document.getElementsByClassName("userTitle");
    var nexbanner = document.getElementsByClassName("userBanner");
    var nexspot = document.getElementsByClassName("xmgCarouselContainer");
    
    for (n = 0; n < user.length; n++)
    {
      user[n].innerHTML = user[n].innerText;
    }
    for (n = 0; n < nextitle.length; n++)
    {
       nextitle[n].style.display = "none";
    }
    for (n = 0; n < nexbanner.length; n++)
    {
       nexbanner[n].style.display = "none";
    }
    for (n = 0; n < nexspot.length; n++)
    {
       nexspot[n].style.display = "none";
    }

    Your comfort with technology leads me to believe that you’re no reverend

    But then, I don’t know that anyone ever really bought that :rofl:

    I've been studying javascript in my spare time...I tend to pick things up very quickly. But, I don't need people to believe anything except for The word of God. ;)
