  1. RSS feed for group topics and posts

    The groups feature is GREAT, but it's hard to remember to go check and see if there are new topics or posts. It would be amazing to have an RSS feed (per group) that would feed us all new topics or posts made to a group.

      • Have a new section for Safari 5 Extensions

        The Title says it all. Now that Safari can run extensions, it would be great if userscripts had a section for Safari Extensions. Safari can't run userscripts directly, but it is very easy to convert a userscript to a safari extension.

        • make the 'reply to' form not overlap the last reply

          When I'm replying to a post the reply form is overlapping the post, making it impossible to read it while writing the reply. Currently I solve this problem by adding some linebreaks between 'Reply to topic' and 'Because it's your web.' using firebug.

            • Remember login on two computers

              Every time I log in from my PDA when I'm too lazy to stand up and get to the PC, my remembered login on the PC is lost, and vice versa. Why is this happening? Other forums have no trouble remembering autologin on every computer you use.

              • versions & diffs delete/merge feature

                it would be nice to be able to delete entries of different versions, when in between other two versions the differences would carry from the oldest to the most recent one, so it would behave as if it would merge the two most recent, but ignoring any added and deleted code from the deleted entry

                i would like this mainly for two reasons:
                1. changes tidiness - why have 100 different versions when each only have a little word of difference?
                2. deleting non-relevant code - imagine that in some specific version you do a temporary hack/fix in your script…

                • show installed scripts in users profile

                  When a registered user installs a script, add that script to a table in the users profile. Allow the user to delete/add scripts manually.
                  The list could be used for... script update checking, popularity(vs installs), recommended scripts, etc.

                  • Add #reviews to "Script Management" page

                    Provide a true dashboard for authors to view their scripts. The "Script Management" page comes very close. If only it showed the number of reviews too, then it'd be perfect! Could it be added? Please?

                      I have a couple of userscripts that I wish to remove from the site, and I cannot find this feature.

                      • link to the wiki at the top

                        Right up there with blog, scripts, forums, groups, and people. It's partly a convenience thing, but it should generate more wiki traffic.

                          • Don't flag script as updated unless source changes

                            Until recently, a script was only marked updated when the source changed, but now modifications to the script description are apparently treated the same way. So if I correct a typo in the description or something, everyone will think it's a brand new version they need to install. As a lot of my scripts involve custom settings in the source code, I try to avoid needless updates...

                              • add the ability for a user to remove or alter his/her votes or comments in the issues section

                                i am aware the issues section is experimental but i do believe such an ability is needed since if a author fixes a broken script, a user should be able to change or remove their complaint from the issues section if they so choose.

                                • Bugs in guides

                                  Bugs in http://userscripts.org/guides/*

                                  1) When a user creates a guide with a blank title or spaces on either side of the guide title it artificially improves the order of display.

                                  Solution is to apply a normalize-space filter and trim (left and right) while saving to the backend.

                                  2) Pagination is non-existent on guides and it would be helpful to have this.

                                  Thanks for the look.

                                  • have a better way to identify duplicate scripts

                                    For example, I have notice the user at
                                    http://userscripts.org/users/74417
                                    has duplicated others' scripts to upload. I mean, line for line, including namespace. And yet, when I go to report it, I can't report to a human, I have to go to "issues" for each script and vote that it's a copy, and then NO ALERT is shown on the front page of each script stating that someone thinks it's a copy, etc. One of the scripts has a positive review, that's linked on the script page, but nothing says hey, it's in dispute, unless someone actually clicks on issues.

                                    And…

                                    • 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.

                                        • describe on the site what userscripts are and how to use them

                                          I'm lazy, I already know how it works all I want is a link to some google chrome userscript tutorial. Other visitors may appreciate some actual explanation about the project. Not having this on any website is kinda stupid.
