Have ideas how to improve Userscripts.org website? Write your suggestions here.

This page is NOT for Greasemonkey script requests/ideas: please go to http://userscripts.org/forums for that.

Remember to search if your idea already exists, vote it up and add your comments!
Please use ENGLISH only.

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".
(thinking…)

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. 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.

    • 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.

          • A frontpage describing the site and its purpose for new user

            This would contain a SHORT description of what Greasemonkey is (and maybe UserJS, GreaseKit etc.) and how to install scripts (so new users won't ask this in forums).

            Followed of course by a nice friendly welcome from the site admins :) and then whatever else. Maybe a short FAQ for new people as well, or links to reccommended reading. Just general helpfullness.

            P.S. I think this could be seen as a duplicate of some other ideas mentioned before, but I have read through them all and they are either poorly worded and difficult to understand, or less specific (there's an…

              • 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.

                • add as-you-type preview of posted comments

                  The current post filtering rules are probably easy enough to emulate client side to give a live preview of how your post will look as you submit it (should lessen the amount of test posts, and need of editing one's own comments). I think I'll volunteer implementing this some nice weekend too. :-)

                    • Have a 'mark forums / topics read' link

                      Would be a useful feature for the forums.

                      • 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.

                        • Allow HTML code's in "Summary" box again.

                          The HTML codes in the "Summary" box were removed. Add them again, or allow only some (bold, underline, etc).
