I Want to Make UG a Better Place

EDIT: Version 1.1.0 now out. More features!

_________________________________


So I wrote a browser extension.

So yeah, our avatars are shit. We're given a limit of 50x50 pixels and a total file size of 20 kilobytes. This would have been acceptable back in like 2002 where 28.8kb dial-up reigned supreme but that is not a time in which we are currently living.

With the inevitable demise of the forums and everything we hold dear I figure that I could help make this place at least a tiny bit more enjoyable for you guys before we all march to our cold graves. So with that in mind, I did the most that any mediocre computer science undergrad could do. I wrote some code. Crappy code, yes, but it works well enough for these purposes.

Introducing the Unofficial Ultimate-Guitar Enhancer!

What this tiny extension does (as of writing this) is scour the forum page you're currently browsing, collect a list of the users who have posted in whatever thread you're viewing, compare their ids to an uploaded JSON file on the interwebs, and if a match is found then it replaces the source url of the user's avatar with what is written on the JSON.

Basically, with this extension we all can have larger, glorious avatars. Example:

Screenshot


Amazing isn't it?

FAQ (skip if you don't care and want to install the thing or flame me):

FAQ


I'll add more when I can think of more.

How to install:
1) Get the Chrome (v1.1.1300) or the Firefox (v1.0) version of the extension.

2) Refresh any and all UG tabs.

3) Post your desired avatar in a reply to this thread.

SPECIFICATIONS:
MAXIMUM IMAGE SIZE: 175x256px
VALID FILE FORMATS: .gif .jpg .png
MAXIMUM FILESIZE: 1mb


Enjoy

Looks cool, but I wish you had a firefox extension. I keep wanting to change over to chrome, but there are a few things about chrome that really irritate me.

I'll try to get a Firefox version working, although it'll be my first firefox addon so I might take a while.

Need to get back to my desktop to try it but I think it's pretty cool when people mod things like this.

Is there a way for this to work without needing to post the request of resizing the image on this thread? Because when I resized the gif to the maximum size after I installed the extension, and tried to make it my avatar, nothing happened.
