  1. Userscripts.org has now a new screenshots feature which uses a lightbox for screenshots uploaded to

    Userscripts.org has now a new screenshots feature which uses a lightbox for screenshots uploaded to userscripts.org. Wouldn't it be nice if we could also use this feature for images linked inside a document? For example, I have a screenshots section at https://userscripts.org/scripts/show/102369; what I would like to see is an option to add a tag that triggers the lightbox to links with an image inside it.

    For example: <a href='http://image-host.example.com/directlink.png'; rel='lightbox' class='slideshow1'><img src='http://image-host.example.com/thumbnail.gif'; alt='A screenshot of my script' title='My lightbox description'></a>
    should link to a lightbox full-size image with a description grabbed from the title-text…

    • Delete script from script management screen

      I can find only one link on the right side menu for deleting script that I don't maintain any more. I don't delete script that often but it should be visible somewhere in admin page or script management table.

      • Email when someone sends an issue with your script

        It would be nice if you got an email notifying you that there's an issue with your script. At the moment the only way to check if there's an issue is to look at the "issues" tab. There isn't a number or whatever saying how many issues there are either.

        • let me rate my own script

          with the limitation that my rating and review are weighted and it is made clear that i am the author, for the primary purpose of warning people how and when functionality lacks and/or breaks, so that they don't waste their time in feedback.

            By having USO check posts first for a small blacklist of commonly spammed sites, spammers can be stopped easily (and without annoying visitors with a CAPTCHA.)

                • page=0

                  Would it be possible to link the QSP of "page=0" to the last page of a topic and script/discuss?

                  I use AVGs menu commander (http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/60247) and it would be nice to cut down on some clicks/bandwidth.

                  Thanks for the consideration

                    • Add #reviews to "Script Management" page

                      Provide a true dashboard for authors to view their scripts. The "Script Management" page comes very close. If only it showed the number of reviews too, then it'd be perfect! Could it be added? Please?

                          Non advanced part of it :D

                          Title Striction <text box>
                          Title must include all of these words
                          Because: its easy to spam tags, also I want a userscript to modify userscripts.org but I find a travian script instead (*n*)

                          Updated at least <number> days ago
                          Because some scripts get written and get abandoned and they don't work

                          Has at least <number> fans
                          Because: same as above reason

                          I know these are easy to make so don't be lazy
                          You'll just add one more search option with another 1 short line of SQL Quarry

                              There should be prominent instructions or a link to /about/installing on the front page to tell new users how to install your scripts. You have the *what* and *why*, you need the *how*.

                              • Bugs in guides

                                Bugs in http://userscripts.org/guides/*

                                1) When a user creates a guide with a blank title or spaces on either side of the guide title it artificially improves the order of display.

                                Solution is to apply a normalize-space filter and trim (left and right) while saving to the backend.

                                2) Pagination is non-existent on guides and it would be helpful to have this.

                                Thanks for the look.

                                • script's page show similar/related scripts

                                  A script's page could show a box to the right saying: "Similar scripts", "Related Scripts" or "See also...".

                                  Problem is how to select similar scripts:
                                  1. use already implemented tag system?(simple to do)
                                  2. make it "web 2.0" so users can suggest and vote up/down similar scripts?(hard to do, but may work better than the others...)
                                  3. Let the author of the script select the similar scripts.(the risk is most authors would ignore it, or choose only their own script, this seems the weakest option)

                                  • give the favouriting system higher prominence

                                    i cant actually find on the site how to view someones favourites scripts, let alone my own, could this be given greater prominence?

                                    • share revenue from adsense ads with script authors

                                      i figure by now, the site must be making enough money to cover costs of hosting, plus more

                                      an option for script authors to add their adsense code, if they have them, and then randomly using their code on pages detailing their scripts, would be a cool option, and encourage more people to add their scripts

                                        • Send updates by e-mail for monitored topics

                                          Every other forum on the web sends updates by e-mail for "subscribed" topics. The forum in userscripts should do that too!

                                          Userscripts.org already sends us updates by mail for favorite scripts, it shouldn't be too difficult to do the same for monitored topics.
