Integrate Accountability Into Pluckeye
It would be cool to see Pluckeye be able to generate accountability reports on possible porn use. Also, if changes to the filter settings could also be reported, that would be cool.
First off, if you want “free x3watch” on Linux, you might want to try
http://netresponsibility.com/ , which should work alongside Pluckeye. If you have trouble with it, feel free to contact me.
Second, Pluckeye now supports basic registration than can be used for accountability. Once registered, your pluckeye settings will be visible on a public URL that you may give to whomever you wish.
$ pluckui add ‘registration basic’
And to undo registration, do
$ pluckui add ‘registration none’
I have added a simple RSS feed to the Pluckeye user page so that accountability partners can be automatically notified when Pluckeye settings are changed.
If you want to see how this works, feel free to track me for awhile:
There are many ways the registration site may be extended in the future. If you’d like to see something, do let me know!
Hmm. I don't think I understand your request. For the settings to be publicly available, you need a web server somewhere that knows how to both receive and display received content (i.e., Pluckeye settings).
You could, of course, hack something together using a cron job (on Linux) or a scheduled task (on Windows), that could save Pluckeye settings on your computer in a log, or send them in an email, or do something else. See my comment below in reply to Dan K on March 8, 2015.
If you would like to describe the situation in more detail you can post here, or you can reach me using http://www.pluckeye.net/contact.html . I'm open to suggestions.
What I meant by customizable is to make the pluckeye settings log accessible in localhost, so that one can still make it publicly available in case user.pluckeye.net is down or no long available.
No, the URL isn't currently customizable. But perhaps one day it will be. Why do you want to customize it?
Can the URL be customisable?

I just got done trying this out! Very nice Jon! I also like the block page you've added to the newer versions.
Created http://pluckeye.uservoice.com/forums/137031-general/suggestions/7187741-require-extra-password-to-uninstall for Dan's password-protection suggestion.

That would sound great! A list of visited websites. This might sound wild but have you considered the idea of adding the option of an uninstall password other than root that would be required when uninstalled? I know this for porn addicts not little children but a feature like this might be good for a porn addict.
If you have a friend who doesn't mind receiving a daily email of your pluckeye settings, and your computer is set up to email from cron jobs, you could do the following:
$ crontab -l >/tmp/mycrontab
$ echo MAILTOfirstname.lastname@example.org >>/tmp/mycrontab
$ echo '00 12 * * * /usr/sbin/pluckui export' >>/tmp/mycrontab
$ crontab /tmp/mycrontab
$ crontab -l
00 12 * * * /usr/sbin/pluckui export
Just an idea that may work for some folks while this feature is in the works.
Reporting changes to pluckeye settings is on the list of future features. Because this is the currently the most popular feature request, beating out #2 by a whopping 50%, I'll spend some time on this in tthe next couple months.
