//Anything written using "//" is not actually part of the code. These are called comments and don't affect anything
//Usually they contain notes about how the program works.
//Hopefully this should be simple enough that someone without code experience can operate it
//Note: Not all parts of this program are guaranteed to work. I've tested everything as best as possible, but
//it is difficult to do without being able to access the heavy load page whenever I need it
//I also can't guarantee that it works on all systems in all browsers. I hope it works for your system,
//but I don't have the means to to test everything
if (document.title.indexOf('Ow') !== -1) {
//These are some settings that currently let you modify parts of the script
var rotation_delay = 5;//This controls how long that the program waits between image swaps. It's measured in seconds
var random = false;//This allows you to choose which mode the program operates in. There are two options:
//if random = false then the program will operate in a loop that always goes in the same direction
//if random = true then the program will automatically select a different random image every time the image swaps
var custom_text = true; //This allows you to display custom text instead of the default heavy load message
//if custom_text = true "phrase1" and "phrase2" will override "reddit is under heavy load right now" and "please try again in a few minutes" respectively
//if custom_text = false the text will not change
var vertical_offset = 400; //This variable controls how close the image will get to the top of the screen.
//Reddit's default value is 275
var num = 0;
var images = new Array(); //Defines an array to store image/text combinations
var choice; //Pretty simple automatic array index generator
var milliseconds_per_second = 1000; //The rotation interval is measured in milliseconds, this allows an easy conversion
document.body.innerHTML = document.body.innerHTML.replace("<h2>reddit is under heavy load right now</h2>",""); //I broke this into 2 commands in case Reddit decides to format their source in the future
document.body.innerHTML = document.body.innerHTML.replace("<h3>please try again in a few minutes.","<div id=\"HeavyLoadPonyText\"></div>"); //It also creates a new element I can access later, Thanks hiles
var textbox = document.getElementById("HeavyLoadPonyText"); //Greatly simplifies text swapping
textbox.innerHTML = "<h2>reddit is under heavy load right now</h2><h3>please try again in a few minutes."; //Restores it to the factory settings
var img = document.getElementsByTagName('img')[0]; //Finds the target image
document.head.innerHTML = document.head.innerHTML.replace("margin-top:-275px","margin-top:-"+vertical_offset+"px")
//This area contains a giant list of images that the script will pull from
//The basic format is:
//image[num++] = {srd:"URL",width:x,height:y,text:"phrase"};//Comment
//"URL" is where on the internet you can find the image
//It should start with either "http://" or "https://"
//And end with something like ".gif",width: ".jpg",width: or "png"
//Those are image types and will work with this script
//If it ends with something that is not an image type such as ".html", ".htm",or ".php"
//You will run into trouble
//"x" represents how wide the image is. If you set this to something different than the regular resolution of the image it will stretch or shrink it as appropriate
//"y" represents how tall the image is. It works the same way as x. I recommend not setting y above 400, but its up to you
//If you set x or y to something other than the default, remember to scale the other appropriately or your image will be distorted
//If you change x use the equation "new y = ((new x/old x) * old y)" to find what the new value for y should be
//If you change y use the equation "new x = ((new y/old y) * old x)" to find what the new value for x should be
//"phrase" lets you customize the text message that is displayed
//This only works if custom_text is set to true
//If you decide to insert your own phrases, quotation marks will not display properly
//If you wish to make a " appear you need to put \" in place of it in your phrase.
//HTML inserted into the phrase -should- work properly, <h2> and <h3> should be predefined by the webpage
//You're going to want to include <h2></h2>, or <h3></h3> around your phrase to make the formatting work
//"//Comment" is a note to yourself about what the image is
// The URL is a difficult way to remember it, so this will help keep track of everything
