stepps: text "dreamer" on burnt sienna background ([dw] dreamer)

Hey guys, so glad to see people are still getting something out of this community!

A little while ago eosrose asked if there was a way to indicate fic they've left kudos for/commented on.

In the discussion flamebyrd explained that as AO3 doesn't display that info at all, or even that you've visited a page except for your browser's own history, so no way to use the data and make it more obvious.

I'm wondering though if there is a script for Greasemonkey/Tampermonkey that would show that the top of a fic page with the regular header info that you've left kudos/commented/bookmarked this fic? I find it really odd and a bit annoying that you have to reattempt any of these functions to find out you've already done them. And it would of cause help us to quickly recognise that we have in fact read that fic already (something I am pretty poor at, now that I don't use or pinboard regularly).

Any help appreciated (even if it's to tell me it can't be done).

Looking at the page's HTML, it looks like if you could make the script scrape the div#kudos for username.

Comments, however, appear to be completely done in js (they're loaded if the site's js is disabled).

For bookmarking, again, could scrape the HTML for "Edit Bookmark" (without the quotes), since an unbookmarked page just says "Bookmark".

beyond all of that, I have no idea.

if you just want to keep track of what you've read, here's one option: I have an account at, which adds a little button to my URL bar. If I click that (or press Alt+W), I mark the story to be saved to my Pocket account (which means it'll download to my mobile phone and to my reader).

If I previously marked the story (and have not deleted or archived it in the Pocket app), that button is red. It does mean that when I follow links to stories I immediately see if I've read and kept it or it's in my to-be-read queue.

Doesn't help you with a distinction between "I have feedbacked/kudo'd/read", but you could use it to indicate one of these.

AO3 does keep a record of pages you've visited: if you go to the menu under your name in the top right, there should be an option for "My History", which gives you ever single work you've visited in a list.

I don't know if this could be used to make some kind of widget (the info is only available to the user, and it's not in an easily searchable form) but the record is there - all 60000 of them, in my case....
