dAmnGotMail - Automatic Inbox Checker by DJ-Zemar dAmnGotMail - Automatic Inbox Checker by DJ-Zemar

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! :D



6/06/2014 - Update:

:bulletblack: 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

:bulletblack: 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.



Description:

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...


for Firefox:
:bulletred: First make sure you have Firefox with the Greasemonkey plugin.

:bulletyellow: If you do not have Greasemonkey, click here to get it now.

:bulletgreen: Once you have Greasemonkey, download the script:
    ► Click here to go to the script home page!

:bulletblue: Then just install the script, restart Firefox, and enjoy!


for Chrome:
:bulletred: First make sure you have Google Chrome with the Tampermonkey plugin (required since May 2014).

:bulletyellow: If you do not have Tampermonkey, click here to get it now.

:bulletgreen: Once you have Tampermonkey, download the script:
    ► Click here to go to the script home page!

:bulletblue: Then just install the script in Tampermonkey, restart Google Chrome, and enjoy!


for Opera:
:bulletred: First make sure you have Opera with the Violentmonkey plugin.

:bulletyellow: If you do not have Violentmonkey, click here to get it now.

:bulletgreen: Once you have Violentmonkey, download the script:
    ► Click here to go to the script home page!

:bulletblue: Then just install the script in Violentmonkey, restart Opera, and enjoy!



Important Notice:

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.

Change Log:

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, 2 Notes, etc whenever you have notes and no other messages.
Version 1.4: Fixed a minor visual formatting error. Script will no longer miss a "bar" between certain items and the notes item.
Version 1.3: Separated Correspondence messages from the Feedback messages; this makes the script seem closer to the original inbox's look.
Version 1.2: Cleaned up the script a bit. Slightly increased stability.
Version 1.1: Fixed for Google Chrome. Runs better on both browsers.

Known Bugs:

Does not work with Group Messages
Does not work with the splinter menu
Does not work with Mentions



If you like my script and would like to show your appreciation, please add it to your Favorites. Doing so will help spread the word of this script so can slowly spread and help deviantART more! :)

Hello, the staff have done sever maintenance, and now the script won't work; it's not updating anything. I'm using Google Chrome as my browser.

You said you wouldn't update this script until Firefox fixes a certain issue. Well, how about making a Chrome-only version with updates to the Group messages and Mentions, and other such things?

The script doesn't work since yesterday, when I click on my message (with number), DA says "This page doesn't exist", I think... DA change script again.

I hope you understand é_è, my englih is so bad ;_;, sorry ;_;

I know, I've postponed any changes to the script until Firefox gets their crap together.

Basically, they made a change to Firefox which breaks a key part of the script used in retrieving the information.. Without that, the script will never work.
So I'm pretty much waiting for Firefox to fix it.

Yeah well it was originally designed for Firefox and I may need to redesign the script depending on what Firefox does, so it would be a waste of effort to change it once when it might not even keep this format. Plus I only use dA on Firefox, so I have little-to-no incentive to update it when I'm already struggling with work and college for the time being; my to do list is already large as it is, unfortunately..

Script still working fine as far as I can see after Nav changes, but seems to be removing the envelope symbol next to the number of messages. Is that fixable?

Also, when you say it doesn't work with group notifications, does that mean A) it doesn't keep track of them or B) it completely removes them from the message menu? I had a phantom message for the last few days that I couldn't get to until I turned Greasemonkey off, though that might have been a different script. (deleted message before I could test, idiot me)

I'm working on a fix, but like I said in the top of the description under "Notice," I can't until Firefox fixes their shenanigans.

And by not working with group notifications, I mean you'll see them for a brief second after the page loads, but once the script refreshes the inbox, they aren't loaded. You can still check the group messages manually, but the script won't load them. This is because they're separate inboxes. Because not many people are group admins/owners, it really isn't worth the hours of rewriting the script to have a chance of either fixing or breaking it.

If I can ever find another JavaScript programmer that thinks they can figure it out, I might let them have a whack at it.

Tinker around with that and make sure greasemonkey works.. If you can't get scripts like SuperdAmn to work, then this probably won't either.

Chrome has decided to be epically anal in regards to third-party extensions now (not sure if you heard, so I thought I'd share). They're no longer allowing anything that doesn't come from the chrome web store. It's BS, but now this extension won't work.

The blog link (though old, it only now seems to be an issue).

Ah okay.. Let me know if you hear anything about how to register user scripts on the Google Web Store.
If it's simple enough and I can pull it off, I'll register as a developer, add the script as an app, and link it in the deviation.

I think you might need to do the legwork for that, since it's your script. I think this link might give you the info you need to do that. I know nothing about extensions myself, but I think that'll give you what you need.

Check again, cause it's working for me.

It's a pretty popular site, so I don't think it'll die anytime soon. If it still won't work, try googling for a "proxy browser" and use a site to proxy there.
If it works, then it's probably your ISP, DNS, or something is just acting up in between.
