Those of you active in the UK forum will already be aware of this script, and since it now has a slowly but steadily growing number of users based outside of the UK, it was suggested that I announce its existence in the global editing forum...
What does it do?
There are two main features to the script. The first is to add a pop-up box next to whichever user request or camera marker your mouse pointer is hovering over. This box contains a summary of the details for this UR/camera, allowing you to quickly see if it's one that you need to pay more attention to without having to click on the marker and wait for WME to reload the map at the marker position.
For UR markers, the box also contains three links allowing you to open up a new WME tab centred on the marker, to open up a new LiveMap tab, or to hide the marker for the remainder of this editing session (if you've decided that it's a UR you definitely don't want to be bothered with today)
The second feature is the ability to filter UR and camera markers by various parameters - type, age, keywords etc. e.g. if you don't want to see any General Error UR markers, they can all be hidden by ticking a single checkbox. If you only want to see URs that were created at least x days ago, but less than y days ago, you can do that too. If you're in the habit of setting URs to remind yourself about a map issue you want to fix when you get home, and you insert your username into the UR description to remind everyone else not to touch that UR, you can then find these URs easily by using the keyword filter...
Camera markers can be similarly filtered, although the range of filters is somewhat smaller here.
The script was developed in Firefox/Greasemonkey, but has also been tested (and used by others) in Chrome as an extension.
Note that, to the best of my knowledge, all of its current users are based on the world server - I would therefore appreciate any feedback from users on the NA server!http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/145186
