  1. Google Chrome installation instructions

    Create instructions that will help users to setup userscripts in Google Chrome.

    Also, userscripts.org should have automatic Google Chrome extensions packager.

    • Google Analytics on script pages

      Have script developers provide optional Google Analytics Pub-ID, which is then served inside standard Analytics-provided snippet on all //userscripts.org/scripts/{action}/{id} pages.

      Knowing their audience.

      • Integrate with github, improving collaborative development

        Today, the hurdles for collaborative script development (accepting fixes and improvements on your own scripts, and providing them on those of others) has rather high hurdles and is largely a manual process mediated by the (for that purpose not very well adapted) script comments system.

        Letting users host their scripts (and their @require / @resource dependencies, for GM 0.8+ only scripts) on their github account would address that problem well.

        • 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.

          • Diffuse the use of vanity URL to other pages

            Vanity URL is very good feature, but now it's used only in profile page URL.

            http://userscripts.org/users/kuy

            I hope to diffuse it more other pages.
            For example, script page per user:

            Actual: http://userscripts.org/users/28357/scripts
            Expected: http://userscripts.org/users/kuy/scripts

            • Allow name property / Menu links

              In user script descriptions you should be allowed to use the 'name' property so you can link to different parts of the page with anchors. You would be able to create a very simple menu.

              • let users login with their username instead of their email address

                It's easier when you change your email address. Then you can still use your username to login and don't have to get used to a new login email.

                    • 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. :-)

                      • There should be a way to remove a "Previous Version" of a script.

                        Say you accidentally uploaded a script that had some personal information in it and you quickly edited it out. Well, it still would show up in the "Previous Versions" of the script. This has the potential to cause problems. There should be a way to either delete a "previous version" of a script for security reasons, or a way to star (***) out certain parts of a previous version.

                        • 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

                              as part of another fix, this is now trivial to implement, but I think I need to add the ability to see deleted comments (or how do we deal with people who write evil scripts and delete comments that warning others?)

                            • Add RSS feed to reviews

                              It would be nice to have an RSS feed for new reviews on each script (just like the RSS feed for new comments on each script)

                              • allow submission of bookmarklets

                                Bookmarklets, like GreaseMonkey scripts, are “power-ups for your browser”. The main difference is that instead of running when the page loads, they run when the user clicks on them in their bookmark bar. I think userscripts.org should allow not only GreaseMonkey scripts to be submitted, but bookmarklets too. There are currently no bookmarklet repositories with user-generated content on the internet (that I know of), and the features of such a site would match pretty much perfectly with usercripts.org.

                                  • remove button in addon window

                                    Please remove the branded button from the addon management screen in firefox. It breaks the look and feel of that screen. Options are supposed to be accessed from the Manage button on that screen, not in its own tab. If every addon did this the screen would be unusable, not to mention the monkey icon is ugly compared to the other buttons.

                                    • Send notifications for new topics started in my script discussion forum

                                      I don't get an email notification when someone starts a new topic in the discussions forum of one of my scripts.
                                      E.g. http://userscripts.org/scripts/discuss/35183

                                      If this was added, I would be able to take immediate action on my user's feedback.

                                      Could this be added?

                                      • integrate with Google Code

                                        Google Code offer many useful thing like svn, issue management, wiki, etc etc ...
                                        You can integrate with them or implements all their features.

                                        I'm yet thinking to write a script to integrate those sites but an official action from you is a better thing.

                                        P.S. sorry for my bad english.

                                        • allow merging of tags

                                          This would make it easier to find all the relevant scripts you're searching for. For example, the following tags could all be consolidated: Googlemaps, gmap, gmaps, google maps, googlemap, googlemaps, maps.google.com.

                                          Let users vote to merge tags. After a sufficient number of votes, automatically merge them.
