Hi everyone!

Given the increase in blogs such as this one, I wanted to quickly and easily know what the most liked comment was. But, I did not want to scroll through every comment to find that out. So, I created Codeforces Better Comments to simplify this!

Just add the extension and you can sort comments by rating and even sort subcomments. Besides sorting comments, this extension also allows you to collapse subcomments and message the comment author in just 1 click. Also, you can customize what buttons you want!

UPD 1: New features were added to the extension, notably the ability to filter out comments by low-rated users and the ability to filter out low-rated comments!

UPD 2: Made the code public here !

Get uBlock Origin for Chromium

Here are a few screenshots:

If there are any other features you want me to implement, please let me know! Also, please let me know your thoughts in the comments. Hope this is useful, Thanks!

Special thanks to oviyan_gandhi, crap_the_coder, and BhavayGoyal for testing this extension!

Feature suggestion : hide comments completely based on upvotes/rating

      Also: it would be nice to hide comments completely based on rating (upper bound) as well!

What is global and local comment sort?

    Global comment sort sorts the top level of comments and the button for that is at the start of the comment section next to the "Write comment?" button. Local comment sort is the sort for each subcomment.

Thanks! Do you have a version of this extension for Firefox/Firefox-based browsers?

Very good extension, thank you!

I would like to get help on a few (design?) misses :

  1. Headquarters get filtered out if we put a rating threshold to see comments

  2. When a rating threshold of X is put, Imagine a case where a person with rating < x comments and a person with rating >= x replies to that comment -> It should be visible in my opinion

  3. Same argument of Point 2 is valid for negative votes threshold as well

    Hey, sorry for the late reply. I agree with all these points and I will work to fix them as soon as possible. I am also open to pull requests if you or anyone else wants to contribute as the code is open source. Thanks!

I would like to have an option to fold comments by default. And a version that is compatible with Firefox (or a simple tampermonkey script). Nice extension by the way!
