NOTICE (2):Notice 1:
If your dAmnGotMail script has stopped working and you're using Firefox, this is due to a bug in version 32+ which breaks a vital part of the script's code. This will not harm your use of deviantART in any way, it just won't update your inbox for the time being.Notice 2:
After the recent update to deviantART, I am currently working on a new version to make it more aesthetically and structurally pleasing (such as replacing older style classes and object layouts for the newer ones), but I cannot continue until Firefox fixes the bug mentioned in the above notice.
Thank you for the Daily Deviation, everyone!
6/06/2014 - Update: Due to recent changes with Google Chrome, user scripts and apps which aren't in the Google Web Store will no longer work. To solve this, please use Tampermonkey as instructed below.
6/08/2013 - Current Version: 1.7 Fixed a bug receiving notifications due to the deviantART store news being removed from the feed. Changes have been made to fix this in version 1.7. My apologies for the delay of this fix. It was presumed to be the previous Google Chrome glitch due to the Chromium project; however, when the bug was fixed, the script then failed again due to the deviantART store closing for good.
This is dAmnGotMail
, an automatic inbox refresh script..
The purpose of this script is to automatically notify you of new messages in your inbox without having to reload the page; this is especially helpful when on the chat network.
The inspiration to make this script came from Dediggefedde
. He gave some extremely helpful advice; the script is also modeled on two of the functions used in his script Devsidebar
which is an amazing piece of work. I have since released multiple changes to the original script and have further refined it, fixing any bugs and improving the design both in its code as well as aesthetically.
This script for Firefox (Greasemonkey) or Google Chrome, will automatically update your deviantART inbox located on your menu bar.
It does not interfere with the user menus, however, and is very simple.
How to install...
First make sure you have Firefox with the Greasemonkey
If you do not have Greasemonkey, click here to get it now.

Then just install the script, restart Firefox, and enjoy!
First make sure you have Google Chrome with the Tampermonkey
plugin (required since May 2014).
If you do not have Tampermonkey, click here to get it now.

Make sure you have the Splinter Menu
turned off before using this script. It was not designed for the Splinter Menu
and will most likely cause undesired effects.
Verison 1.7: Fixed bug after the closing of the deviantART store.
Version 1.6: Fixed login issues, Improved design, fixed Activity Stack and fixed Journal Stack.
Version 1.5: Fixed the 1 (1 Note)
glitch and now it will only display 1 Note
