Block K'nex Instructables/Forum Topics/Groups! Now with Allsteps! Version 1.0.0.1

Picture of Block K'nex Instructables/Forum Topics/Groups! Now with Allsteps! Version 1.0.0.1
It seems that some people dislike K'nex. Although I find them a tad annoying, they aren't the bane of my existence (that's the line of IE browsers!) This method hides them away, getting them out of your sight.

The basic outline is this:

1 - Install Firefox
2 - Install Greasemonkey
3 - Click this link

Once you do this, you will be with the inner zen of yourself and your lack of K'nex guns!

Thanks WhatsIsFace for the motivation to get me started on the project, and for testing.

Step 1: Install Firefox / Get Greasemonkey

Although you can use other browsers with Greasemonkey, (Seamonkey, Epiphany), this tutorial will just cover Firefox. This instructable goes over how to use a greasemonkey script with Opera.

If you have IE, Install Firefox. You'll like it much more, and instructables doesn't support IE. This means that instructables should render better.

---

You'll also need Greasemonkey:

Get Greasemonkey

You will need to restart Firefox for Greasemonkey to work.

Step 2: Get the script!

Now that you have Greasemonkey, click me!

Voila! The script is installed, and K'nex are blocked, and Allsteps is automatic!

You can stop right here, or you could read on and find out about the script's features!

Step 3: Changing Blacklist/Whitelist

Lets say you don't want to see anything to do with squid. You can't stand squid -- and it makes you want to hug a blanket.

Just open up the script, and locate:
//Edit below line to change blacklist.var blacklist = ['knex',"k'nex",'k-nex','lego','runescape','!!!!!','killerk',          'rubber band gun','rbg','soe op','grenade','megatron',          'me pain','oodalumps','paintball'];//Edit below line to change whitelist.          var whitelist = ['Greasemonkey Script'];

To add squid to your blacklist, put it in quotes, and add a comma:
var blacklist = ['knex',"k'nex",'k-nex','lego','runescape','!!!!!','killerk',          'rubber band gun','rbg','soe op','grenade','megatron',          'me pain','oodalumps','paintball' ''','squid' '''];

However, lets say you still want to see things pertaining to Squid Labs. You could add "labs" to your whitelist.
var whitelist = ['Greasemonkey Script' ''','labs' '''];

 .5 stars 
this is offensive

Agreed
Quite. .5 stars also
Yup :P
 why did you rate 5 stars if you find it offensive?
...he said POINT 5 >.>
 oh.
hahaha agreed
 LOL Also, have you seen my knex stuff?? PLEASE check it out. Rate and subscribe!

much appreciated :)
So you went to the ible' for people who hate knex and want them to look at your knex. Don't take this in a bad way but thats like going into an african american neighborhood and saying "You guys should see my white supremecy stuff!" It just doesn't go over well XD
Haha! I believe thats what referred to as "trolling" In all seriousness, your example is spot on, but levels of magnitude stronger than the knex situation.
XD
lol perfect example XD
Why would anyone on a i'ble on how to BLOCK K-nex want to GO to a K-nex person and look at K-nex?
exactly
  :)
True.
yes. yes indeed
yeah, you're right, so i rated it 5* too! lol, i'm so stupid.
You don't have to use it.
It's not doing you harm.
It stops k'nex haters from rating your Instractables badly.
It stops flame wars.
For some one who wants information on a real gun this can speed up their search time.
It's free.
It's a pretty neat piece of code.
Helps people find what they want faster sometimes.
The makers spent some of their own time and their own effort to stop an endless argument.
It can be edited for other people, it's not just for k'nex.

That's 10 stars, average it out with your .5, that makes a round 5.25. Round that and it's a 5 star Instructable. Which is what I'm giving it.
 youve got some good points in there.
i gave it 5 stars now

Oh cool, congrats on the 1000th comment as well. I think I'm on 1600 or something. Right behind Kiteman's 16000.

.5 stars 
this is discrimination.

Discrimination? That is quite a fallacy dude. This helps you out so we non-knexers don't have to see you knexers which take up more space in the forums than just about anything else.
Not discrimination, you realize how many knex guns there are right? and most of them are crap, so by using this you could easily filter who you want, and don't want to see.
