No metadata from, as usual, another MySpace luser:

LouCypher:

We should really validate for a (metadata) name + description. I thought we did already, but perhaps not. The Greasemonkey extension will actually install scripts without headers, but I think we should have higher standards of quality.

The script in question didn't look malicious, just lacking in metadata. I wrote a comment asking for it to be added.

There was another name doing the same kind of thing, "costal vacations" posts in Spanish. It might be prudent to do some more general banning on this one.

User gabedibble has posted a lot of the same comment on users scripts (link). Does this count as spam?

Might I suggest he take a 'costal vacation' to the far side of the river Styx?

this guy post a lot of links in my script comments.

Could you please give the script owner the right to delete spam comments?

My script link is : http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/7997

Also from user 25343 (chenyangwei):

- http://userscripts.org/users/25343;comments

 
Henrik N Admin

Removed the chenyangwei user.

Ming: Giving the script owner the right to delete spam comments is a nice idea, but then again we don't want users that write evil scripts to be able to remove comments from users warning other users.

 
Timothy Scriptwright

What about a "Report Comment" or "Report Script" type thing.

That way it would cut down on thread/post in these forums that are just about spam, thus creating more spam.

 
kfk Ming Scriptwright

Henrik, I understand your concern. Timothy's idea may be the solution for this dilemma. Give the script owner the right to remove spam, while provide the user a way to report malicious script to admins by simply clicking a link on the page.

Bad idea.

Good idea.

also that users comments on their own script: http://userscripts.org/users/26184;comments

thanks - deleted! - the admin

 
Jesse Andrews Admin

btw, I agree with Lou about having reporting in the individual scripts - I hope to get our database converted to unicode tonight - been working on this for over a month .... learned a lot about what not to do...
