  Gallery of PhysicsOverflow userstyles and userscripts

+ 2 like - 0 dislike

I just thought that we should have a gallery of userstyles and userscripts that can be used on PhysicsOverflow by users to customise PhysicsOverflow to their needs. Userstyles and userscripts that are incorporated into the software (with necessary attribution, of course, and only if the style/script's license permits us to do so) should be marked as [CORE]. 

Userstyles (design) and Userscripts (convenience functionality) may be posted together if they need to be installed in a coupled form.

Name: NostalgicOverflow
Description: Gives a nostalgic feel of the early days of the private beta of PhysicsOverflow; the script used to be a bug, now it's a feature, it's ugly by design. 
Installation Instructions: Install script with GreaseMonkey or Tampermonkey (on chrome) from GreasyFork.

This no longer has the charm that it used to have, after some additional modifications to the PhysicsOverflow style (and I'm no longer updating this script), but it's still pretty nice. If anyone else is interested in updating it, feel free to fork it to a new script on GreasyFork.
