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

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.

        Would it be possible to also track uninstallations? Some scripts are just installed for one test.
        I know it would be a bit complicated (cookies?) FF addons 'Collector' for collections doesn't even do it.

        Hello,
        If one is connected and is the writer of the downloaded script, one shall be ignored and the install count shall not increase by one.

        @anotherjesse: Uniqueness and dynamic IPs are tough but wouldn't an onclick tracker on the INSTALL button bypass any other problems (as auto-updates would be direct, not visiting the page and clicking)

        1 IP per count isn't a good idea, in Italy we have a ISP who NAT thousand (or more) users behind 1 IP
        besides this every guy with a dynamic IP would be a pain in the ass ...

        if you wanna make it accurate, you can't count on IP at all... only way i see it's making login required to install scripts...

        Not really. What I mean with unique is the amount of installs based on IPs, so 1 IP per count.

        Would tracking the number of logged in users who have installed give you the information you are looking for? This is actually a rather complicated issue since some scripts do auto-updating which mess up counts
