userscripts.org is down, but...

edited May 2014 in Site Feedback
You can access it at http://userscripts.org:8080/ .

Also, with some help from @zren, Greasy Fork will now import from the working URL. So if you have scripts on userscripts.org only, this may be a good time to add them here...

  • hi,

    sorry for the question, but how do i add my scripts in here? (been looking for half an hour and cant find it -.-)
  • You can post new scripts from your user page. Go to https://greasyfork.org/, click on your user name in the top right, then click "Post a script".

    anything that's popular and open source should just be mirrored on greasy fork.

  • Looks like it might not last much longer. Randomly throws "No space left on device" errors now.
  • Is there any news from the Admin of the website?

    It really looks like it's in it's last throes. Shame really they do not keep the user-base informed.

    Jesse Andrews, the admin of userscripts can be contacted by
    his email: anotherjesse@gmail.com
    or his twitter: https://twitter.com/anotherjesse

    DO NOT EXPECT A RESPONSE, it seems he has completely abandoned userscripts to rot as mentioned in this forum thread
    http://metatalk.metafilter.com/23252/A-small-heads-up-about-userscripts-dot-org#1150119
    it is very likely he will ignore all inquiries about userscripts.
    as stated in that link, he was suppose to hand userscripts over to someone who is capable of running the site, in his words, someone who will not ruin userscripts, but he never announced or updated that such a person has been chosen or ever will be chosen.
    (that announcement by jesse was way back in 2010)

    ● Perhaps he is waiting for a reasonable MoneyOffer/Buyout and will only respond to such.
    ● And maybe expects % of all future ad revenue of the site.
    Nothing wrong with either of that... I think he deserves it... but just saying that could be what is going on.
  • >  Perhaps he is waiting for a reasonable MoneyOffer/Buyout and will only respond to such.
    If you're waiting 4 years for a serious offer with just one small post (not even on USO itself), you're not serious searching.

    By abandoning USO and let it fill up with SPAM it will only decrease any 'serious' offers.
  • Thankfully I discovered this site after someone mentioned it at:
    http://www.isitdownrightnow.com/userscripts.org.html

    I use that site to check whether a website is down.

    Thanks for the information. Well I guess it is time for me to abandon USO. Shame really as the interface is still the best.

    no jesse never asked for compensation, he is just way too busy with his new line of work and was gonna give the site over to someone, the only issue is he never gave an update about whats happening, i can't say for sure why but so far USO is abandoned until further notice.
  • Any chance the import interface could be allowed to accept URLs from archive.org? BTW I imported my scripts manually but lost all the previous versions, it would be very nice to have those as well.
  • You can "Import from URL" from anywhere.

    userscripts.org:8080 no longer works: "No space left on device - /mnt/uso/releases/20140414221719/log/newrelic_agent.log (Errno::ENOSPC)". Interesting that there was a "release" on Apr 14.

    Respect to him for starting and running the place, but he's a bit of an ass to let it die like this without any proper or official warning whatsoever. And before anyone retorts that "we have no right to complain" -- we do, because we've been the bread and butter of content for the site over the years, building it into what it is (or was) today, and by extension, the hefty chunk of value that the site is surely now worth.

    It wouldn't have killed the guy to post a banner on the front page, saying "Heads up -- USO's funeral is next Tuesday. Get everything you need before the purging fire falls."

    Massively lame on his part. If I were a prospective employer, I'd raise an eyebrow to behavior like this -- not because he doesn't have time for the site anymore, but because he weaseled out by not passing the torch along to someone like he claimed he would (See: YCombinator), and at the very least, by not giving an official warning about what's happening with the site, particularly that it's going down for good. Sure, a lot of users read between the lines to export and archive, but there are surely swaths of scripts and users that weren't able to.
  • Any chance the import interface could be allowed to accept URLs from archive.org? BTW I imported my scripts manually but lost all the previous versions, it would be very nice to have those as well.
    Great idea, if that'd be possible. I believe archive pages aren't statically accessed, but rather, dumped dynamically by the server, probably in lieu of archive retrieval/extraction processing that needs to happen. So we'd need to factor in that functionality to do something like this.
  • that's how i'm uploading them. going through the archived files
  • I found here an erepublik stuff script, but I don't know how to download. thanks
  • The bad news:

    The 8080 port is not working anymore

    The good news:

    There is a mirror site that was also in a comment here

    http://userscripts-mirror.org/
  • The good news:
    Here are new Redirector settings:

    Include pattern: (.*?)s?\://(.*?)\buserscripts.org(\:8080)?\/(.*)
    Redirect to: $1://$2userscripts-mirror.org/$4
    The bad news:
    List of scripts created by an author (users/xxx/scripts) is unavaible

  • an userscript for link redirection: uso-mirror.
  • Redirector settings:

    Include pattern: (.*?)s?\://(.*?)\buserscripts.org(\:8080)?\/(.*)
    Redirect to: $1://$2userscripts-mirror.org/$4
