I typically download fic and forget to come back to kudos/comment later. Anyone know how to make a script that will highlight fic that I've already left a kudos and/or comment on? It'll make checking to see if I've left feedback so much easier. XD

Edit: I'm looking for and indicator from the tags/search results pages. I don't want to go to the specific work page to check.

There's already a script for this, "AO3 Kudos tools". Download it from userscripts.org. There are other AO3 scripts too. I recommend the download button if you don't have it already. It puts the download button on the bookmark and search result pages. Plus if you edit the script you can get it working on the history page.

As far as I know, there's no way to tell without visiting the work whether or not you've given kudos. There's just no information on that page for a script to use to display those items differently. (I'm not on a real computer right now or I'd check to make sure, but I'm pretty certain that's the case.)

I'm not sure if this will help you, but I have the same problem, and this my workflow:
1. Mark any fic I want to read on my ereader as "to read" on AO3
2. Periodically download batches of fic
3. Go through my "to read" list every time I download a new batch and mark as read and give kudos/comments.

You could easily combine 1 and 2 by just marking "to read" at the same time you download.

Wow, 5,000 that you haven't read and haven't provided feedback for? I tend to only download a new batch once I've finished the first. (It means I tend to read things 3 months after they're published, but I'm okay with that.)

Either way, all I can suggest is some kind of "read it later" list that you take items off once you've read them... an external one like Pocket would be easier with large numbers of items than AO3's.

I use Calibre and the FanFictionDownLoader plugin as part of my workflow. I'd be happy to detail it for you, if you think that's something that you might consider using.

When I rate the story in Calibre, I click on the link to open the page in my browser and go put kudos then. If you don't use the star ratings in Calibre for fanfic, then that's probably not useful for you, though.

And just to udpate now that I've had a poke around with a computer - AO3 doesn't indicate on the tag listings, or any page that isn't the individual work, whether or not you've kudosed or even visited that work before (except for the usual "visited link" colour).

So there's no way for a script to hook into that information and make it more obvious.
