Hi, I'd like to formally announce my customization script for botb! A few of you are already using it, judging by recent threads.

So the way this works is: every modern browser supports extensions that let you load your own javascript (which in turn can edit CSS and HTML) so webpages render differently on your computer. The one I use is called Tampermonkey, but Greasemonkey is the original.

My userscript, uncreatively called botb custom, has the following features right now:

-Countdowns are converted to local time and displayed below the originals.
-Similarly, the begast page displays the start time in local time
-Pointlessly modified layout (youtube and begast in the top bar, social links in the footer, etc)
-A lot of boxes, particularly on the main page, are collapsible if you click on their title. But for some reason, I seem to have to click twice the first time I collapse them...
-Most of this can be toggled off in the ordinary botb Settings page.

Installation is pretty simple: after you get an extension that understands userscripts, if you click on the raw JS, it will ask you if you want to install it.

If you use it, let me know what you think, especially if it breaks a page or if there is a feature (within my abilities) you would like~

Wow, nifty :). Find it a little weird that it removes the home button - was that intended or is that a bug?

Aaaa other people commented on that too... I needed to remove things from the top navigation in order to make it fit on one line after I added stuff, and I thought people would just click on the logo instead. Might be a mistake....

I can at least add the home bunk back to the left side though. I forgot why I removed it there...

Okay, I updated it again, to v0.3! I mostly just set a few more options and added some color picking helper code to the settings page, but also everything should obey your palette now unless it is explicitly not supposed to.

The address is the same as the above:

I am running out of ideas so it might be close to being done now :)
