Userscript.org is a great initiative, it really is. Jesse and Britt are doing a great job responding to feedback e-mails, adding feature and even helping me out by resetting my password in the days you were unable to do it your self. However, there are a few things that I would like to see improved or added.
- Most important, in my opinion, is an option to be able to receive an e-mail when someone adds a comment to a script you have written. I visit userscript.org every now and then having to go by all my script to find out if there are new comments.
- When I did a comment check run tonight I found out that my Blogger tag adder script had gotten a negative rating. It would be nice if you could (be forced to) leave a motivation with the rating. My scripts may not be perfect, or you might not like them, but I would like to know why. Also the number of raters would be interesting.
- I would be nice to have a (filtered) RSS feed on new user scripts.
- A search box every page would be handy. This can be Greasemonkeyed - in fact, it has been done.
I hope these ideas will be implemented in the coming version of userscripts.org.
Update 2006-01-07: How could I forget this one:
- Users scripts on your accounts page should be sorted alphabetically.
Update 2006-01-08: I wrote a user script to improve some things on the myaccount page.
