dAmnotify for Google Chrome by Fxy dAmnotify for Google Chrome by Fxy
Read this isht
dAmnotify (gangster name credit =razorill) was made because =Pickley wanted the topbar contents to be updated without reloading the page. This is particularly useful in dAmn (the chat thing). It's cool and the features will be listed below.

Here's what it does:
It checks the DiFi (in other words: fast alternative to loading entire pages in the background of your browser) for new messages every two minutes. My studies have confirmed that this time interval is ideal. If there are new messages, it'll update the numbers under the notification menu and include (+number of new messages) in yellow next to each notification with new messages. It's cool bro, try it.

If there are bugs, please report them, because I expert there to be. If you want something more out of it, ask and you shall receive if I feel like it.

P.S. Doesn't work with the splintered menu. Because of smartness, it'll simply not do anything if you have the splintered menu set.
P.S.S. Doesn't include notes. Sorry, it's dA's fault. The error messages are incoherent.

Why is 2 minutes ideal? What's the disadvantage of having it faster?

You don't even look up there every two minutes, so that's faster than truly necessary already. The disadvantages of making it more frequent is simply because it has to load data from deviantART every time it updates. Depending on your internet speed, this could slow down everything else every time it has to load. Now, due to considerable optimization, this load isn't long, so it's not noticeable if it only occurs every two minutes. It'd be more noticeable the more frequent it is, and that's why it's not too frequent. Depending on the speed of your connection, however, you could load this every 5 seconds and not notice a thing. I wanted to make it bearable for people without such speed though, so that everyone can enjoy it.

I do :noes: But I see :nod: thanks for explaining! :D
Yeah, I used to set my deviantAnywhere to every 5 seconds and never noticed any loss of speed ^^; Is there a way to edit the speed after installing or something? :)

You could add an option to do so, but I didn't. I felt that people really wouldn't look more than every 2 minutes. It's just something on the side and not like the main attraction of every page. Plus, you don't have to really have to pay attention to it because it'll add a noticeable yellow number if you have any new notices.

For your extension or mine? Because mine doesn't have any such option included.

Yours, since you said "You could add an option to do so"...

I meant that you could add an option in an extension if you were to create one, however I chose not to in order to keep it simple. Trust me though, you don't need it to check every 5 seconds. You'll still get the information you need when it arrives :meow:
