To use this little doohickey, go into the Portal and select the last Under Judgement movie. Click the NG Portal Advance button/bookmark you created, and you'll be moved to the next movie. Odds are that movie won't exist yet, and you'll get a "Portal Error". Have no fear, though; if you click NG Portal Advance again, it'll simply reload the page until a movie appears. Watch the movie, click your vote, and click the Back button to return to the movie's page. Then click NG Portal Advance again, and it'll move on to the next movie!

I've added a new feature to the NG Portal Advance. Now, if you click the NG Portal Advance button when you're on the "thanks for voting" page, you'll be sent back a page. Click the NG Portal Advance again, and off you go! This way you don't have to click Back before using the Advance again.
Very nice modification. I've just tried it out and it's a breeze. I especially appreciate that it advances to the next flash ID# if you're on a "marked for admin review" or "graveyard" page (well, as long as the graveyard page was accessed via the usual portal/view method, not via rip.php... I didn't try that). Very groovy. It doen't get fooled by anything other than the "flash doesn't exist yet" page.
One thing, though. Your page was confusing because it said both:
"This way you don't have to click Back before using the Advance again.""
"Just remember to hit the Back button on your browser after voting before you use the NG Portal Advance."
Methinks you should remove that last sentence from the bottom paragraph of the NG Portal Advance notes... seeing as how it no longer applies. #;-}>

Haha, I remember you telling me able that little technique gfoxcook told you about on AIM once. Nice to see you made it into a program. But does it go to the most recent flash overnight or something? Explain that part, as in if YOU are inactive for a night does it just automatically go to the most recent flash the next time you get on?
Yep. I didn't just tell HIM, BTW, I've mentioned it in level up! a couple times and probably in other threads as well... to several people. I just don't think very many people thought it was a very good portal browsing method. Cept for SK, apparently. HE KEPT THE FAITH! #;-}>
If you paid any attention to my method when SK was telling you about it... you'd remember that my method was simply to add 1 to the portal flash ID# of the current UJ entry and boom, you're at the next movie (which might be under judgement, already saved, already blammed, already whistled... or finally, not there yet... any of those five possibilities). So obviously it's not going to remember what flash you last watched the next day or anything. Nor would it skip to the next UJ flash automatically.
If you're on flash # 218918, for instance, and you vote on it and then go to sleep and leave your browser open... and then you wake up 8 hours later and hit the portal advance twice... you're going to end up at 218919 which will probably be a graveyard page (or a movie with well over 200 votes that got saved hours ago)... and you'll need to get back to the portal mainpage to find out what's the oldest movie that's UJ. Click that one and begin again (it might already be saved or blammed, but no matter... just portal advance till you get to the next UJ movie. FUN!)...
anyway, just to clarify the process... With my method, you voted on it if it was UJ... otherwise, you'd add 1 again to the ID# and move on to the next one. This was all so you could avoid the hassle of refreshing the portal mainpage, which not only takes time... but is also sometimes misleading (it shows movies as UJ that are already blammed if nothing new has come in since the blammage... it shows movies as UJ that are already saved if nothing new has come in since the protection... etc. etc. etc...). With this method, you avoid such b/pcockteasing and skip straight to the movies and find out for yourself whether they're UJ or not instantly. That's why I always advocated it to people who got pissed off at this portal quirk.
