On userscripts.org site, I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. Show New Comments/responses - Alert Author

    I continuously go to each of the scripts I left a comment on seeing if someone responds. It would be great if there was a "New!" tag on the comments page next to your responses indicating there were new comments. It would also be great if the author was notified (optionally) when a comment is left on his script so they can know whether their script is broken or needs attention.

        • Provide feed for an author's scripts

          I'd like to subscribe to a given author and be notified every time s/he posts something new. Over the time I have found a couple of people which generate lots of great ideas and/or have a very good programming style. The currently available feeds are great but fail to offer this information.

            A good idea. Perhaps I should switch making a favorite to “follow” like it is on github. On github you can “follow” a project or person, and your get a activity feed on them.

          • show new installs/comments

            Show new installs and new comments since you left.

              • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • allow merging of tags

                        This would make it easier to find all the relevant scripts you're searching for. For example, the following tags could all be consolidated: Googlemaps, gmap, gmaps, google maps, googlemap, googlemaps, maps.google.com.

                        Let users vote to merge tags. After a sufficient number of votes, automatically merge them.

                        • show installed scripts in users profile

                          When a registered user installs a script, add that script to a table in the users profile. Allow the user to delete/add scripts manually.
                          The list could be used for... script update checking, popularity(vs installs), recommended scripts, etc.

                            The warning about recently uploaded/updated scripts should only be displayed on scripts which have been recently uploaded/updated (Say within the past 2 weeks).

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                  Ala Amazon.com. The idea here is to both:

                                  Avoid script bit-rot. for any given script you can recommend what you think is an updated or better version of the script.

                                  Further spread knowledge of useful scripts.

                                  • add userscript to site itself

                                    Add every ## time a much downloaded/rated userscript to the site itself. That way the scriptwriter gets the ultimate prize: adding script to site and everyone will use your idea.

                                    • make forum rss feed link to permalinks for posts

                                      At the moment, the script comment feeds link to the permalink for comments, but this isn't the case in the forum feeds. This would be handy for topics that go over multiple pages, as one would likely want to go to the latest post, and not the first page.

                                      • 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.
