Script Summary: Replaces the linked comment triangle pointer with a hedgehog.
(Check out the screenshots linked above for a quick look at what this script does.)
- Version 1.1: 2011-10-23 - Moved hedgehog a tad farther left, so that it doesn't overlap with the left stripe along comments by the asker/OP in AskMe threads.
- Version 1.0: 2011-10-20 - First release.
A triangle pointer normally appears when navigating to an anchored permalink for a comment. To see it in action, just visit any direct link to a comment, e.g. http://metatalk.metafilter.com/21102/hooray-for-readability#936714
This script basically overrides the triangle and replaces it with an image of a hedgehog, as suggested by jessamyn.
This script works on MeFi, AskMe, MeTa and all other subsites. It has only been tested in Firefox 7.0.1 for Windows, so there are no guarantees that it will work anywhere else or with other MeFi-related scripts.
Update: Thanks to MeFites in the "Hooray for readability" MeTa thread for confirming that this script also works in Firefox for Mac, and Chrome for Windows and Mac.
If you'd like to improve or modify the script, please feel free.

Thanks to Rhomboid and his MetaFilter unicorn and narwhal buttons script, which I basically used as a model for this script. If you like the hedgehog, I highly recommend also adding the unicorn and narwhal to your MeFi life.
