Kink meme script

Last December, a kink meme mod asked me if there were any tools out there to assist in getting meme prompts into Pinboard. Naturally, there are not. So we made one, and after six months of iterative development, I have something that might be useful for the subset of people who are in charge of maintaining Pinboard archives of Livejournal kink meme prompts.

Before all three of you get too excited, here are the requirements for using the script:

1. Your kink meme must be on Livejournal, in a journal using the Minimalism S2 style and customized comment pages.
2. You must be using Firefox. (Possibly the script will work in Chrome under Tampermonkey, but that is completely untested.)

Get the script here: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/169955 (If you get a Bad Gateway error, refresh until it goes away.)

Should have all the screenshots and instructions you need, but drop me a line if you try it out and have trouble. It's only been tested on a few different memes, and it's heavily dependent on the LJ style of the journal (needs to be able to find very specific bits of HTML in the comment page) so if your kink meme's LJ style is too customized, it probably won't work.

Also maybe drop me a line if you end up using this thing, even if you don't have issues? It's a pretty complicated script, and it will be very sensitive to LJ and Pinboard HTML/Javascript changes, which means it could break without warning when either company makes a code change. The install counts at userscripts.org are broken, so I won't be able to tell how many people have installed it, and if I don't think many people are relying on it, I probably won't be very prompt about fixing it since I won't be using it myself.

*stares in speechless wonder*

(Incidentally, if anyone who happens to read this has a KM and no Pinboard account, drop me a line!)

Yes, it is sort of ridiculous. I don't usually code GM scripts for such a targeted audience but I figured, well, it's done now, and semi-tested, so may as well give it to fandom just in case it proves useful to someone.

That is really impressive! :o Nice job; I'm sure it will be a godsend to those who have the responsibility of archiving a meme's prompts.

Just as a PSA, there's also a script made by Andrew Ducker here which will take all those new bookmarks and list them in a single post. So if that meme archiver wanted to create a post of all new prompts for the day/week, your script plus Andrew's seem like they might work together nicely for that purpose.

Yeah, those people have a rough job, so I hope this can help.

Thanks for dropping in the link to that site, looks like a slick replacement for Delicious' old auto-posting feature, which I loved! But could never rely on because it broke so often and never really got out of the experimental phase.

I linked this to my fandom's KM, ty for your hard work :D
