  1. This suggestion thread is to entertain the idea of adding a user rating system to associated TRiBot scripts. Here's the implementation of such a system. Once a script is stopped, if it's a public repository script, a dialog box appears asking the user to rate their script experience with either a thumb up or down. Ratings are timestamped and repository search results can now be filtered by average user rating, with an option to only use ratings from the past {day, week, month, year}. Below are any pros and cons worth mentioning that I (or anyone in the comments) can think of. I will also propose solutions to any cons since I know that's what people will tend to focus on. @TRiLeZ @Todd @Usa Pros Provides a single unified way to score repository scripts which we currently do not have. Current ways of rating a script are: Scripter's reputation: not super accurate, only works for popular scripters. Posts on the script's thread: tedious to read through many recent posts. User testimonials: anecdotal and typically not representative of the overall experience. It will now be significantly easier for new and experienced users to choose scripts from the Repository. Script writers now have a way to gauge customer satisfaction. This will lead to: More appropriate pricing for scripts. Better script update/patch focus from the scripter. Another reason to choose TRiBot over other clients that do not have a system like this. Cons Users can repeatedly start then stop the script in order to gain access to another rating. Solved by only allowing a TRiBot user to rate the same script once every 12 hours of real time. Users new to a script that can't figure out how to use it in the first 5 minutes of use will rate it poorly. Solved by preventing users from rating a script until they've run it for at least 6 hours of script runtime (excluding pauses and breaks). User bans will influence user ratings. Keep in mind that bans are a part of the user experience, which is what the rating system aims to measure. High banrate scripts will get lower ratings because of: User error: poor botting practices leads to users blaming the script. This is a universal constant and applies equally to all scripts, so it doesn't affect the comparison process. Overall OSRS botting banrate: another universal constant. Method-specific banrate: some botting methods are more closely monitored than others leading to an unfair rating due to bans. When users compare scripts of the same method, this will be a constant across all those scripts, so it makes no difference. When users compare scripts with diverse methods, the rating they see will not reflect the true rating of the script. This means users will gravitate to lower banrate scripts, which isn't objectively fair, but will improve overall TRiBot user experience. Script-specific banrate: scripts with poor antiban or botlike patterns will be rated worse than others. Good, that's actually the way it should be. Scripters that choose to write scripts for high banrate skills will be seen as worse scripters than they really are. There are two options here: Simply avoid the methods that are known to have higher banrates. Unfortunately doesn't apply to existing scripts. Work hard to develop a stringer antiban implementation for the scripts that need it. If you do this properly: Your script will stand out as the only good one in a category of otherwise poorly rated scripts. You will gain nearly all the market share for that category. You can now charge more for the script since the only other options are poorly rated ones. You'll drive innovation in the field of antiban if you are successful here. The implementation of a system like this will take lots of time and resources. It is what it is. A rating system like this will improve TRiBot significantly, but it doesn't come without costs. Overall, it's not a perfect system, but there are workarounds to many of the issues that do come up. If you can think of any more pros and cons, or better solutions to existing cons, please post them and I'll update the OP. Overall, to me, it seems like the benefits outweigh the disadvantages, most of which are either minimal when you analyze them, or have simple solutions. In the end, the Repository does need some revitalization, and this would significantly improve it and the TRiBot user experience.
