Small Tampermonkey script to hide those awful new "retort" emojis

If your eyes bleed when you see this:

then install Tampermonkey and use this script:

// ==UserScript==
// @name        DT forum declutter
// @include*
// @description Hide pointless emojis
// @require
// @require
// @version     1
// @grant       None
// @run-at      document-start
// ==/UserScript==

console.log("DT declutter started")

waitForKeyElements("button", zapRetortEmojis);

function zapRetortEmojis(jNode) {
  if (jNode.attr("class").includes("retort")) {
    jNode.attr("class", "hidden");

Well, I wasn’t blessed with that quality, and I value what’s left of my eyesight :slight_smile:

These emojies are retorted.


What does that mean?

For political correctness I’d rather not explain that joke. :slight_smile:
The class name is retort… so yeah.

Oh Man… here we go

Okay to at least provide something remotely useful to this thread:

Oh yeah, I did forget to hide the post button.

Original post corrected. Thanks.

Your method works well too. I like it.

Dunno why I immediately reach for Tampermonkey when I have to deal with stuff like that. uBO works dandy for that purpose. Must be a coder’s habit.

haha yeah I agree these things are just nasty. the git clone has been removed from the docker yml file so the on the next update these things will go.

now they are limited to 6 choices and you can only pick one… like with social media posts…

yeah i am trying it out… i really just wanted a laugh reaction but one can just post that i suppse

I’m indifferent. Limiting to one reaction per person is likely wise, but we use Slack at work and that gets… … … excessive. I’ve come to terms with the fact that kids will never, in fact, get off my lawn

Custom emojis on the other hand…


Honestly, I don’t mind it, but PLEASE fix it for dark mode. Currently, they stick out like a sore thumb.
On that note, maybe it would be possible to get a fix for the DT logo in white and a lighter thread header colour too?
