Hey all,

I've decided to start using this thread as a place to discuss new NG+ features.

Here is a sample of components I'm building for the Extension version of NG+. The Extension version will be able to exert a lot more customization because it will be less restricted than a user script.

Hey all! Here's a picture as proof, it's official, development on the native extension version of NG+ has started!

Hopefully this won't be too hard to port, I'm starting off in Chrome because it's what I use every day, but I do plan to support Firefox and Opera

For the inline reply window, is it possible to make it so if you've already quoted someone, if you try to also quote someone else, their quote would automatically appear in the reply box? Because that would be awesome.

This feature is being planned, though I was pretty sure the stable beta of NG+ had it?

Either way, it's going to be in the extension version.

Ok, so, last feature for tonight.

I call it WhitePaper, basically it unclutters the BBS and makes it more readable for users with small screens. Similar to news reader extensions that cut out all the content on the sides of the page.

Currently, it works really well until the screen width drops below 1000px. Collapsing that sidebar will fix the issue.

Hey all, just a quick update.

Tentative icon for NG+, may play around with the colors more and experiment with less coloring behind the letters.

Played around with the colors a bit, I think I like this revision better...

After seeing the NG ePenis Script made by @Mattster, I was inspired to take a crack at revitalizing the whole ranking system by creating highscores. WIP, pic below:
