[Guide] Semi-legit Restocking (AdBlock Lists, Disabling JavaScript)

Introduction

Hey everyone, this is a quick little guide for semi-legit restocking based on two guides I looked at (1 2). They are few years old now and I wanted to do a little update. In this guide I will show you how to block images of items you don't want to buy using lists for AdBlock and remove the popup dialog asking if you want to buy an item when you click on it to save time. This is a pretty simple guide compared to those two. I'm not using any scripts for auto haggling or anything.

 

According to others, this method is relatively safe. I haven't heard of anyone being frozen for doing this but there could always be a chance for it to happen. There is always a chance that doing something like this could cause them to be suspicious of your activity and monitor you. If you don't want an account to be frozen, don't use these methods.

CAUTION: Use at you own risk!

I would recommend turning off the lists (later called filter groups) when you're not restocking or even when restocking from time to time. You never know when they could be watching you.

 

Before

Spoiler

 

After

(There are no good profitable items here, according to my list, so there are no pictures. If there was a profitable item it would show if it isn't in the list. The items that show up will vary with what kind of list you want to use.)

Programs Needed

AdBlock Lists

You can create you own lists of images to block or use mine.

 

Create/Edit Your Own Lists:

Firefox

Spoiler

 

Chrome

Spoiler

 

Premade Lists:

You can just paste these into your filter groups like in Step 6 for Firefox or into your custom filters like in Step 14 for Chrome above. There are different lists for different profit margins so choose the one you want.

Disabling JavaScript

The popup dialog message asking if you are sure you want to buy an item in the shops is done with JavaScript. We can disable to go to the haggle page right away.

Yeah I'll be sure to have some useful pictures. I'm just getting it up so I can make edits. I sometimes close tabs/go back in the browser and lose my stuff...

Very nice guide you have. +rep! I would suggest you put the lists of things to block in it's own overarching spoiler so the guide doesn't look so intimidating :p If you want more tips on making guides, you can always PM me :D

Great advice! Thanks, I'll be sure to spoiler more sections.

 

Update

Up and ready to go:

- Intro, programs, etc.

- Firefox AdBlock list how-to

- Fresh Foods premade lists

- Firefox JavaScript disable

- Chrome JavaScript disable

 

Coming soon:

- Chrome AdBlock list how-to (Chrome's AdBlocks are different than Firefox's and have as many features. It may take some time to get that up.)

- The rest of the premade lists

Really nice guide, BUT I thought TNT could easily detect when we're blocking images from shops when RS*?

If that's the case, this should be a massive red flag to them.

Like every other thing that gives you advantage for the game: use with extreme caution.

 

 

*I think I remember reading this somewhere. I looked for it but I couldn't find it anywhere, so maybe it was just a dream lol

That was one of my worries as well. I asked around a bit and it seems like no one's been frozen for it. Of course there is some risk with any kind of thing like this so I'll put in a better warning.

 

Here is what someone else told me. There's a thread where I asked about it and got some replies.

It's not entirely out of the question. If an IP is red flagged and TNT is monitoring any accounts on the IP for suspicious activity, it won't take long for them to realize that the images of unprofitable items are consistently not loading, which then leads to frozen accounts. Not foolproof :(

 

 

I was thinking maybe if I could find a way to alter the text instead it would be better. For example, if profit is negative then the name of the item would be red. Then have different shades of green/blue to indicate what the profit margin is. I don't know how to make a script like that though and have it check the itemdb.

The idea itself it's very good.
I used it a few times when I still had the time to do some legit restocking but I felt like I was always in the verge on being iced, because of the obvious, I mean.. blocking dozens of images?! That can't be good, right? But the truth is, I was never caught for doing it, so maybe whatever it was I read (if I actually read it and not dreamed it) was just more of a prevention rule or something written by one of the fan sites preaching every Neo rule like it was demanded by a holy identity of some kind. Oh well...
Anyway, I'd like to try it out again just to see if legit restocking is something I can give a shot again, so I'll definitely try this out later and report the results. :)

I would personally enjoy being able to see the different profit intervals through changing the text color, but I don't know how to do that currently haha.

It's worked well for me so far. I've gotten many items plus an Elegant Draik Wig a bit ago.

 

Updates

Shops with lists:

- Fresh Foods

- Kauvara's Magic Shop

- Toy Shop

- Unis Clothing Shop

- Grooming Parlour

 

Pastebin has a 25 paste limit so I'm using Tinypaste now.

For mozilla firefox: 

I just want to add that I don't like noscript as much as I like QuickJS. With QuickJS you can turn javascript on and off with ctrl+Q. This is useful because in the attic you can't buy without javascript enabled (or so it seems?) but with quickjs you can turn javascript back on, refresh attic when theres supposed to be a restock, and then turn it back off when there isnt.

Yeah I don't really like NoScript, I guess it's used mainly for staying secure. I removed it from the guide a bit back. YesScript is similar, you can enable and disable but I'm not sure about keyboard shortcuts.

I knew the other things, but didn't know about disabling javascript, which would help a ton.

Hey everyone. I think this is as far as I'm going with the guide right now. Sorry Google Chrome users, AdBlock just isn't the same in Chrome. You can still make your own custom lists but it doesn't have the same features and isn't as easy to do. I don't use Chrome as much and I'm too lazy/busy to make the Chrome part at the moment.

 

To those who want a list(s) for another shop or want something updated, just post and let me know. I added that to the guide.

 

Alright, good luck out there everyone! :)

Oh shoot man, that sounds horrible lol. Are you sure it's just not in safe mode or something?

Btw, I always keep .txt files of all my stuff just for backup. It's a good way to live by.

Looks like I lied, I wasn't done. Thanks to @Speedracer's help and support, I decided to do the Chrome section. It's a little more complicated than Firefox because of the difference in how they display the resources/blockable items. I hope everything makes sense and is not too hard to follow.

 

If anyone has any questions/comments/concerns about the guide, feel free to let me know. Any requests for lists can be posted or PMed to me as well. Good luck out there! :)

Good to know. I haven't heard of anyone being frozen except for one case where a guy who was red flagged already used it and he was being monitored. I used it for a bit and now I'm ABing since I'm lazy/busy haha. I'll see if anything happens at the end of the month which is coming soon...
