Description from store Newest Release 1.84 ********** 2/1/18 ((VIDEO DEMO - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cCrwyIKI_Jo Don't know why google can't show it in the middle of the screen right now, but whatever...)) Trolls. We could do without them, am i right? Ignore the replies of anyone you choose with this extension in Youtube Live Chatrooms. HOW TO : FILTER TROLL Drag and drop the icon about onto the troll icon. A new entry will show up in the TROLLS table. Their comments won't show up in your chat anymore. UNFILTER TROLL Click the (x) button in the table next to their name, EXPORT NAMES IN BULK Click the 'export names' button below the table and all the names you have accrued so far are in the text box. It is just a single username per line. Copy and Paste. Easy. IMPORT NAMES IN BULK Click the 'import names' button below the table and Either 1) Paste an exported list of names and click import button. 2) Type one troll's username verbatim per line and then click the import button. PS (As long as you are in a normal Youtube live chatroom, not the special "Night Mode in Youtube Gaming" which accesses a chatroom through an iframe, then this will work. ) CODE https://github.com/Joe11000/Troll-Starver-for-Youtube-Live-Chat RELEASE NOTES RELEASE 1.5 ********** 9/9/16 * Add import and export functionality for troll names. Just encase each name in single quotes for import. ie 'Name 1' 'Name 2' 'Name 3' * made the "clear chat" button a little prettier. RELEASE 1.6 ********** 9/12/16 * There was an import and export bug involving regex with quotes. I removed the extra complexity and no encasing quotes or escaping single quotes are needed anymore. For importing, simply put one username per line without unnecessary spaces at the end of a line. RELEASE 1.7 ********** 12/6/16 * Added the ability to expand and collapse the Troll Blocker table. If the table is collapsed and the user drags a troll's icon, as they normally would, the table will automatically open until. If the user drops the icon in the correct location, then the table will return to the collapsed state. If the user drops the icon in the wrong location, then the table will remain open. RELEASE 1.8.3 ********** 1/26/18 * restyled the css with css grid styling and fixed things that youtube broke with their updates to their chatroom. Temporary Release to fix larger problems. Known Bugs: 1) Beyond +1000 troll names the names overflow in the first column. That is a CSS problem that chrome has to resolve resolve soon on it's own. 2) After clicking "Clear Chat" the following messages appear shakey or just appear only one at a time or just weird in general. That is because Chrome is using javascript behind the scenes to determine where the bottom of the chatroom is and to try and position itself to be at the bottom of it. Chrome Extensions con not access native javascript on a web page by their very nature. So until they Youtube stops doing weird calculations behind the scenes, there is not much I can do at the moment. 3) Do not use extra spacing or unnecessary blank lines when importing troll channel names otherwise those lines or the previous lines will understand it as the wrong username and won't block it correctly. RELEASE 1.84 ********** 2/1/18 * removed outline from Clear Chat Button * capitalized first letter of all words * Remove <strong> from "Name" header on import * Filter out paid comments of trolls * On load, decrease the amount of bulk imported from 50 -> 25 and increase the amount of time to lapse so that the video doesn't decrease in quality and decreases the lagging on the chatbox.

  • (2017-03-14) Courtney H: This used to work only a couple of days ago. Then, I updated it. Now, when I drag people to the troll box, their names don't appear... Their messages get deleted, but they are not blocked. Their messages keep on appearing. :(
  • (2017-02-07) Priory Ville: Joe the new extension works ok with the new chat. The problem is that in the chat there's a lot annoying people that use my own nick name to immpersonate me, they found out that if they use it and I block them is going to block me too. This is the only issue I found.Youtube does not alowes me to change my name often I don't know if this can be fix in the extension. I would rate it 5 stars. Hope you can fix this.Thanks.

  • (2017-01-19) johnps30: EXCELLENT: THANK YOU for some reason, the last version DID NOT work on popout but DID in normal. SO FOR ME this is a great improvement!!! - I have missed this SO MUCH!!!! You are the troll blight HERO!!! UPDATE: Joe, I read Overview notes and not sure what you're asking. I WAS using it despite not working in popout-chat mode. And would use it again. Youtube seems to have changed chat interface and TROLL STARVER (an extension I LOVE) no longer opens. Youtube CHANGED SOMETHING. Can you help??? Thanks. ps. it also was having trouble loading in the popout chat. I am using Version 55.0.2883.87 m (64-bit). Thanks John Stanton

  • (2017-01-16) Earth League: I would love it if it worked. Is there something special I should do to get it to work for me? Am I doing something wrong? I'm not trying to troll, just needing to know how to get the app to work. Otherwise I believe this app would be the best thing I've ever seen. :)
  • (2017-01-09) Xiao: In any case, I will always look forward to! Because I have to use it !!

  • (2016-09-02) Chris Courtney: I only gave 4 stars due to the app lacking an import export feature. I am currently collecting trolls and if this isn't implemented I will attempt at an addon to supplement it. Love this app. It's exactly what we need.
  • (2016-07-12) Tommy B: Joe, I'd like to buy you every beer in the store :) This perfect for childish flooders and should be a function available within YT itself. Kudos!
  • (2016-06-13) _ “‪GHDW‬” _: Unlike YouBlock this version works while the chat is popped out.
