I've read your reminder. Can I close it once and for all?
Can I close it once and for all?
I'm considering a timeout or using a
localStorage value to indicate that it's been read (which won't work for some including me)... I may even entertain a temporary user.js in the short term but everyone else who doesn't visit as often as some needs to see it... and I'm still working on some other areas related to this. It is closable... got any other ideas? :)
localStorage if it boils down to that... cookies are usually managed with several peeps too. My DOM storage is disabled so that's why it won't work for me.
GM_setValue in a user.js is technically the only user safe way to do this other than creating a full reminder model (which isn't out of the question but not a top priority for me at the moment due to putting out other fires).
timeout isn't the best solution, IMO
Neither is leaving an open ended statement as such... seems to be lacking merit at the moment.
Well it's what everyone is stuck with until someone creates an issue properly on development and someone picks up the task of doing it. If you are that impatient with it then get to work!... or wait until the expiration date when you won't have to worry about it. I've already presented you with what could be, including my intentional absence of mentioning cookies. ;) I guarantee a later label as I'm done with it for the time being but that doesn't mean we won't examine what is presented formally and any PRs. So hop too it, IMO. :)
Interesting alternative in your script now... however what happens if there are multiple reminders? What happens on extremely small viewports?
Is OAuth2 active yet? I haven't been able to make google my default authentication (yes I logged in and used it before 04/20). Also, are you going to be using Google Sign-In?
Just curious, because it looks like you were going to migrate, even though it doesn't seem to want to play as default... Thanks!
Best to ask questions like these on development... but as far as my last check probably not. Google is making rash changes as of late and they continually break things but my account last check worked fine.
Your google account can currently be used as a login authentication? When I goto preferences and click it, it comes back like a redirect, not having set it, and stays with the authentication scheme I already had set.
Some of you may have been experiencing Google Authentication failures.
It is most likely this. e.g. Google has probably stopped their migration thus orphaning access to any account that wasn't upgraded by them.
If there is not a trail to a verifiable source, like GitHub, we can not do anything for you since even we don't track secondary contact methods such as email. If you have multiple authentications, say Twitter or one of the others currently found by adding one at https://openuserjs.org/user/preferences there is some hope.
Alternatively we do suggest, if you want to, putting something in your profile to tell us who you are and where else you can be found. An example of this would be my profile which links to GitHub and then create an issue on GitHub... that is verifiable evidence for us to be able to merge/split/change your account here on OUJS.
Otherwise we apologize for Google authentication change destroying your ability to log in but there isn't much that we can do beyond what we have already done.
Thanks for the read.
Google has deprecated OpenID and will End-of-Life (EOL) this authorization method by April 20th, 2015.
OpenUserJS.org has made some accommodations to automatically migrate from OpenID to OAuth2. We'll be observing this change for the next few days to ensure everything is good to go on our end. You should be re-prompted for access to your Google profile to confirm this change.
Thank you for a moment of your time.
