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        Please add some option where people can vote for removal of outdated, malware, stealing scripts.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

                              • 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…

                                  • Implement some form of "deprecated" tag for old scripts

                                    Some scripts may no longer work but can be of use to some people for coding or interest reasons. Since a majority of users won't want to install such a script, there should be some way of unlisting a script without actually removing it.

                                      It would be great to provide some form of social coding similar to github.
                                      People (atleast I do) tend to modify their installed versions of scripts, rarely are these changes published on userscripts.org again, mainly because it seems like plagiaratism to republish a script with just small changes.
                                      Userscripts should provide a "clone script" button, keep track where the script was cloned from and therefore also allow to view diffs between the "master"-script and the cloned script. This way everyone can publish small changes to scripts while it remains clear where the script originated. A lot of ideas can be…

                                      • "Users Who Use This Script Recommend ..."

                                        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.
