Yes, that’s all correct! As long as we’re on the subject, it might be worth noting that most restaurants have a policy where large parties (6-8 or more people) will be required to tip (essentially) by adding it to the bill total, in which case it’s called a gratuity.

Hey Fritz! So obviously the weekend came and went and still no bug fix has been published. BUT, I do believe I’ve found and corrected the issue. Just to be safe, and because I don’t want to publish an update without a working fix, would you be willing to give it a sample first? I’ve got a private test version of it Read more

As an American, I’ve got to say that your understanding of our tip system is as good as mine. I will add that personally, I was raised with the understanding that the default percent to tip for average service was 15/16% (though I still generally start at 20% for average). Also, of all the people I’ve known who have Read more

HOLY HELL, YOU GUYS ARE BOTH RIGHT. There’s more than one way to parse the sentence “I don’t tip 20% no matter what”! When Schmear Campaign said it, they meant “when I tip, the server isn’t necessarily ensured 20%; if they don’t meet a minimum level of my expectations, I may tip less.” KeyserRoll interpreted it as “I Read more

Glad you’re liking it, Lenny! The bug you’re experiencing when you try to go directly to a comment from your notifications is indeed a bug on Kinjamprove’s end, not Kinja’s. That’s going to be one that’ll take me a little while to fix, unfortunately. In the mean time, there’s a (admittedly crummy) workaround for it: Read more

Aha, after some testing, I believe I found the issue! If you update to the latest version of Chrome, I think it should be working for you. And if for some reason you can’t update Chrome, I’ll be publishing a bug fix sometime this weekend, hopefully. Read more

Hey, yo, Ed — forget everything I said. The timetable just got moved the fuck up, man, ‘cause I actually got the updated version working on FF today, more or less. I think all I really need to do now is go through and clean stuff up and add documentation and it’ll be ready for Mozilla to review! Read more

Whoa, ADoHAToS, that’s news to me, and I’m the one who made it! I just assumed it would only be available for desktop. That’s wild. Thanks for the heads-up!

Hey Chris! Kinjamprove is my browser extension designed to improve on the Kinja commenting system. (It’s a bit of a clumsy portmanteau, I know.) Among other things, it makes it so Kinja has nested threads, and now it makes it so you can sort comments however you like. You can get it for Google Chrome here. Read more

Dang. It’d help me if I had more info. What version number of Chrome are using? (You can find that at chrome://settings/help .) What model of computer are you using?

Let it be known that, on this the 16th day of November, in the year of our Lord 2017,  Kinjamprove handled the 28,735 comments in this thread like a goddamn champ. Now, the Community thread with 100k+ comments, on the other hand... that’s another story.

Hey gesundeitall, I’m the author of Kinjamprove. Thanks for using the extension! The reason you’re not seeing the button is because Kinjamprove has just been updated and now requires a permission that it didn’t previously, and per Google’s policy, has been automatically disabled. You can re-enable it on the extensions Read more

Can it fix the backwards-counting star counter that doesn’t count your stars too? If so then I’m sold. :P Read more
