Ok, so I've been working on a lolli.org firefox addon.   It's going to be a small toolbar.   In the addon options, a member will supply his/her lolli.org username and password.   The toolbar will update when the website updates.

What items would you like to see added?

New messages, new posts in Gangs you belong to, and new posts in threads you created would be a nice start.
 
"Honey, I want to do something, we never do anything!" "We are doing something. I'm watching the game and eating a sandwich, and you are making me another sandwich!"

Maybe if there's even a way to send an alert when a message of yours has been quoted. So you know when your post is being addressed.

This would be great. A "regulate on ppl who don't like your opinion" notification.

OK.   I worked all yesterday on this.    It's not as easy as I thought it would be.   Their reference guide isn't easy to read.   I've resorted to reading several "How to build a firefox addon" writeups.

I used IE for years before realizing how bad it's to develop exclusively.   My buddy Steve actually pointed it out to me many years later.   He has a Mac with Safari, and I saw half of my stuff wasn't showing up in his web browser.

I used to bitch about Safari. Now it owns. i put it on my PC at home too :) I'm still a mega fan of FF though.

My prob with IE is all the security holes. There are a few viruses out there that can run IE without a user navigating it. I've had a few computers that have contracted these viruses over the past year, one being my own.

I sometimes forget that everybody doesn't use Firefox.
It's not perfect (by far), but it's my fav browser.

Install the package and restart firefox.

When I'm surfing elsewhere and click one of the lolli related buttons it takes control of the tab i was in. I think it would be better to launch it's own tab.

Works fine as far as I can tell. Fix the tab thing and everything is a-ok!

I use Chrome, but as of yet there are no add ons.  That is why I have been thinking of using Firefox.  The lolli addon might be the selling point.  Damn you all and your flaming forest dog.

Yeah jump on the bandwagon... FF pwns!

I have a sweet lil add-on called FootieFox. I set up which soccer leagues from around the world I want it to monitor, and it keeps track of all the games being played at any given time. There is even a lil "GOAL!!*cheers*" popup in the corner whenever there is a goal! The only drawback is that they have no English language partner, so if I want expanded info on a game I have to decipher some German...

Not sure if this is possible, but a scrolling banner of events (just names) that are about to take place (possibly premium only?) would be helpful!

Maybe just the events on that day, all events would be too much...

Well I guess this means I should download and install Firefox.  Rich your website owns!  I love how you use the input of the board members to make lolli even better.   Rock the fuck on!

i always hated developing for ie, you pretty much have to accommodate it though for mainstream development as it has a pretty large user base =/
