  1. 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!

    • 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.

          • Provide Social Coding Capabilities

            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.

                • 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…

                      • Allow to upload resource files

                        Allow the scriptwriter to upload together with the script also resource files. I find the possibility to include resource files very powerful, overall if you want to write a multi-language script. Removing all the texts from the script reduce its size and the script became also more readable. Also the translation of the texts will became more simple and accurate.

                        • Report Scriptwright Feature

                          In addition to being able to report a particular script, it would be extremely nice to be able to report a particular scriptwright for spamming. This would be an ideal way to eliminate Orkut spammers.

                                • Show New Comments/responses - Alert Author

                                  I continuously go to each of the scripts I left a comment on seeing if someone responds. It would be great if there was a "New!" tag on the comments page next to your responses indicating there were new comments. It would also be great if the author was notified (optionally) when a comment is left on his script so they can know whether their script is broken or needs attention.

                                    • Allow authors to temporarily disable a script

                                      Websites are constantly changing, and so must the userscripts that improve their functionality. However, occasionally, a site will change to a degree to where the userscript might completely break the page, or even cause the browser to crash.

                                      This results in ugly nasty comments for the users who had the script installed already, but usually nastier comments from those who just installed it. Some authors will write on the install page in big, capital, bold type to not install the script, but there should be a better way to make users not install it.

                                      This shouldn't take much more than…

                                        • Add private GreaseMonkey script hosting

                                          This would allow to mark your own script, if you wish, as private, so you benefit from userscripts.org hosting facility, while keeping the script for your own usage.
