    • Put the search box on every page.

      The search box for searching all greasemonkey scripts should be more accessible! Please put the search box on every page, or at least on all pages in the directory "userscripts.org/scripts/". Currently, the only way to access the search functionality is to click on the "scripts" tab on the top of the page.

      • To create a better script classification system

        Instead of just throwing the scripts into a huge list, classify them according to categories; like site, purpouse, etc.

        • Vote for removal

          Hi,

          Please add some option where people can vote for removal of outdated, malware, stealing scripts.

          For exmaple if a script receives 3 times as much "Remove" votes as "Keep" votes, after a total of 100 votes, the script gets deleted.

            • Search function on the front page

              There used to be a search field at the top right of the front page, making it easy to look up a script. Now you have to navigate to it. This is huge step backwards compared to the previous layout. Ideally, the first thing people want to do when they visit the site is see popular scripts and search for new ones. In its current state, the front page does not satisfy that, and makes it more difficult and tiresome to use the site as a whole.

              • Show that script is already installed in Greasemonkey

                This could eliminate the need to install a style when it's already in Greasemonkey. Stylish has this on their site, and also when a style is updated it says: Style has been updated since your last install.

                • Use Google's re-Captcha to stop spam bots

                  We would type one or two extra words per post and the spam would be gone and the forums would be usable again.

                      • Multiple authors of the same script

                        If one person creates a script initially, then another person alters it substantially (or rewrites it but provides the same features), it would be nice if the second author could be added as an admin for that script for credit where credit is due, and for future maintenance.

                          • Implement "flag as spam" in the forums

                            This would hopefully eliminate the need for the "Spam and malware" topic. Also, a better system to actually follow through and remove spam (eg. I've personally had spam in comments of one of my scripts for weeks, I flagged it and posted on the forums and it's still not been removed - http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/9580#comment-38856).

                                  • Possibility to show in what browsers script works.

                                    Scripts that don't use "GM_*" can work at Firefox (with Gresemonkey), Opera and probably at more browsers. Maybe scriptwriters can mark at what browsers their script can work correctly. And it will be show on the right as a small icons (they can work as a link to FAQ for specified browser). Or You can search on server for "GM_*" tags, and mark scripts as working only at Firefox or (if You don't find any "GM_*") Firefox and others.

                                    • Amount of unique installs

                                      Add an amount of unique installs for userscripts.
                                      This way you can get a better track of the amount of users, using a particular userscript.

                                        • clean up forum

                                          There should be a group of moderators who cleanup the forum and expand the forum maybe. The forum is so cluttered that I don't like coming there.
