      • Report Spam Reviews

        I think that there should be a report button for spam reviews, and if theres like 5 reports or something the review is removed!

        • ... to fix your email setup (important!)

          i cannot get my verification mail because your sender address is invalid.
          uploader.userscripts.org is not registered.
          any correctly configured mail server discards your emails.

          • Search via Rating

            Searching via rating searches by Ascend and not Descend (Lowest scores first, best scores last). A bit useless when searching for good scripts.

                • Don't flag script as updated unless source changes

                  Until recently, a script was only marked updated when the source changed, but now modifications to the script description are apparently treated the same way. So if I correct a typo in the description or something, everyone will think it's a brand new version they need to install. As a lot of my scripts involve custom settings in the source code, I try to avoid needless updates...

                  • Do not allow scripts that do not publish source code

                    More and more sharecash links are showing up to get scripts and no source code is ever published. Please stop clogging the pages with this rubbish.

                      • Report Feature for the scripts (combat Spam/Malware)

                        There is an increasing amount of malware and spam on your site :( For example, see this page here: http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/129156. Can it be possible to code a 'Report' feature into the site? If it has been reported by more than 1 user, it gets a 'warning' status applied. Staff can dismiss warnings for a particular script permanently. Otherwise, enough votes gets a script deleted for spam reasons and the user account disabled. A weighted popularity system can be used to combat abuse of this system, so people who correctly identify spam more often and correctly than others have greater…

                        • Report Script button

                          I think it would be a great idea if this website had a button that would report a script as harmful, upon doing so it should freeze all downloads until the Script owner has made the necessary changes to his script and if he doesn't he's banned.

                                to reduce spam it would be very easy to set a cooldown for postings so you would only be able to post e.g. once per minute

                                    erh, "Oslo " is missing in the settings Time-sone's dropdown. considering you have Denmark's Copenhagen, sweden's Stockholm, Finland's Helsinki and even Estonia's Tallinn I believe that is an oversight :)

                                    • Comments for script versions

                                      Now it's hard to see why a new version of a script was made, and reading the version diff in version history is not an option for an ordinary user.
                                      Please make it possible to add a comment for a version, like "feature A added" or "bug B fixed" or "this version is broken, don't install".

                                      • Put in a REPORT button..

                                        If you've seen the Facebook Hack & Facebook Spycam scripts, you'd know they're rubbish and used against the user. These scripts should NOT be here and users could report them to you to pull them down

                                        • implement akismet for automatic comments spam filtering

                                          I noticed under the script "discussions" or "reviews" many spammy posts, which means a spammy url in the title, and dummy keywords/proposals in the text.

                                          The actual version of userscripts.org has no button to report these as spam, which is another (good) idea in here:

                                          http://userscripts.uservoice.com/forums/795-general/suggestions/6170-implement-flag-as-spam-in-the-forums

                                          But still, with such a button, spammy comments would appear anyway till somebody reports them (lots of manual work needed).

                                          The best would be to have an automatic way to detect and block obvious spammy comments as soon as they are created, as akismet does: http://akismet.com/

                                          Please consider this. No captchas or such "robot…
