  1. Allow bookmarklets in Script description (read before declining)

    I have a script which would be helped by a bookmarklet, but not by clicking - only so that the users can drag that to their bookmarks toolbar and press that on the page they want. uso doesn't allow that right now in the description, and I have to describe how to create new button and write all the javascript code in the description page - making it look ugly and confusing.

    • require users to verify email when they change it

      currently users can change their email without having to verify it - this means I could create an account, verify my email, then change my email to someone else's address - potentially causing frustration for that person.

        • Advanced Search

          Search <text box>
          Non advanced part of it :D

          Title Striction <text box>
          Title must include all of these words
          Because: its easy to spam tags, also I want a userscript to modify userscripts.org but I find a travian script instead (*n*)

          Updated at least <number> days ago
          Because some scripts get written and get abandoned and they don't work

          Has at least <number> fans
          Because: same as above reason

          I know these are easy to make so don't be lazy
          You'll just add one more search option with another 1 short line of SQL Quarry
          If you won't hire…

          • Send updates by e-mail for monitored topics

            Every other forum on the web sends updates by e-mail for "subscribed" topics. The forum in userscripts should do that too!

            Userscripts.org already sends us updates by mail for favorite scripts, it shouldn't be too difficult to do the same for monitored topics.

              • show a true changelog

                The version saving was excellent, however, it could be improved.

                If @version is available, use that on the versions page instead of or in combination with the date.

                When a scriptwright updates for a new version, allow a textual description of the changes (I know the code changes are already viewable). e.g. Added new features, compatibility with other scripts, works on other browsers, etc. Many scriptwrights already implement a manual changelog, but a "real" one would provide a consistent look & feel when looking at version changes.

                • Add on all pages a huge blinking link to a faq page

                  Each week at least one user ask for the same question: How to install a script?
                  Add on top of all pages a huge blinking link for dummies to a faq page.

                  • Allow userscript authors to immediately flag and hide or else immediately delete spam reviews ourselves.

                    Like this one:http://userscripts.org/reviews/34952. Every time site admins remove one spam review like that it is *immediately* replaced with another one thanks to the many spamming users of this site, an ongoing pattern pretty much since I first uploaded this particular script last November. It takes site admins on average 2-4 weeks to remove each spam review but it only takes me one second to see it *is* spam and remove it myself. I don't see why we can't have more control over spam reviews via a "flag as spam" link that will immediately remove the review from visible…

                        • enable sort of scripts in 'manage user scripts" window

                          I can't be the only person using a *lot* of scripts. I think it might help if one could sort the scripts in the 'manage user scripts" window

                          +sort alphabetically
                          +sort so that enabled scripts are on top
                          +other variable ?

                          (user could add "_" to the beginning of the title of their favs, to force them to the top...)

                          • Script Development Mode

                            When people create more complex scripts, sometimes it may be good to be able to check-in unfinished versions in userscripts.org, which will not get published for install to the public, only to the author and possibly a list of few other co-developers.
                            This way one can start a script at one computer, continue it on another, show it to testers or other devs, and only publish it to the public once it is complete.

                            • Add delete icon button

                              There's currently no way to delete icons we've uploaded to our scripts. I accidentally uploaded a screen shot to the icons and can't delete it so my avatar shows instead.

                                • Remove misguided/useless/impossible UserVoice suggestions

                                  I know this is a uservoice suggestion rather than USO, still needed I think.

                                  Examples: "Greasemonkey for Google Chrome!" (impossible - for USO at least), "omerta rank script" (in the wrong place), "add preview script function!" (impossible)

                                  I wouldn't classify these as spam or duplicates. Just uninformed/misguided.

                                    • Have a better wysiwyg-editor

                                      There's almost no editor, and userscripts itself even have better ones. Just look in the userscripts database for a good example.

                                      • Script download not working

                                        Whenever I click to install a user script it takes me to the source code. I cannot download and install it. Can you fix this? example of a script that I haven't been able to redownload for 2 weeks in http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/109011. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling greasemonkey and the script I had, and tried uninstall my mozilla borwser and trying again. Same results. The error is on your side.

                                        • Fix the download stats.

                                          The download stats are still not listed in the Admin page. The graph was nice too. This is something I've been complaining about for months... it's annoying not to see any progress.
