What's 'purdy URLs'?

Jason is promoting two scripts which make the targeted URLs therein look pretty (or, at the very least, better than in the original format pre-script).

The URLs have the name of the script or user in them.

Well, I was close. Regardless, still purdy (I used to know a girl named Purdy - nice gal :) ), Jason. Thanks!

Hello, I am wondering if it is possible to let script authors decide whether to adopt purdy URLs (i.e. an option to switch back to old-style URLs).

Non-english speakers might find purdy URLs cumbersome because their scripts tend to have a name with non-ascii characters, thus yielding an extremely long installation/update URL that does not make much sense (e.g. greasyfork.org/scripts/218-%E8%A7%A3%E9%99%A4%E7%BD%91%E9%A1%B5%E5%8F%B3%E9%94%AE%E8%8F%9C%E5%8D%95%E5%92%8C%E5%A4%8D%E5%88%B6%E9%99%90%E5%88%B6/code/%E8%A7%A3%E9%99%A4%E7%BD%91%E9%A1%B5%E5%8F%B3%E9%94%AE%E8%8F%9C%E5%8D%95%E5%92%8C%E5%A4%8D%E5%88%B6%E9%99%90%E5%88%B6.user.js).

I know the old-style URL (e.g. greasyfork.org/scripts/218/code.user.js) still works but it is a hassle for me to edit the script URL each time I attempt to share it (or @require it in another script if the script is a library).

It's unfortunate that Firefox will by default encode the non-ASCII characters when you copy-paste, because https://greasyfork.org/scripts/218-解除网页右键菜单和复制限制/code/解除网页右键菜单和复制限制.user.js is not that long.

I don't really understand the objection you have. No matter what, it's going to be meaningless to someone who doesn't understand the language. Why not make it meaningful to someone who does?
