UR's being followed

Postby AK-Wizard » Wed Jun 14, 2017 11:40 pm

Is there a way to find all of the UR's that an editor has responded to, checked the notify me box? I'd like to do follow-ups on those which may be getting stale, but can't find a way to relocate them.

The UR-MP Tracking script is the closest thing I know of.

Where is it? Finding current, functional scripts seems to be a wreck in the Waze forums! I asked this question several weeks ago, here is the thread and responses: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=819&t=222487

This should be it. I'm mobile so if that doesn't look right, let me know and I'll find out for sure tonight which one I use. https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/1776- ... p-tracking

The link SkyviewGuru provided is correct. UR-MP is probably the best script for searching for URs you are following
The information is usually in your feed tab of WME

Searching though the Scripts forum is usually the best place to find information about scripts.

A couple other popular scripts to look into are WMEPH and PIE for working places.

Thank you Gentlemen, I've installed all three per your recommendations. Now, an after the fact concern: Considering that the scripts and the script manager have quite a bit of potential for getting up to mischief in a browser ..... and that I know right next to nothing about checking either for security flaws ..... Is there a reliable way to check/contain/control/restrict their ability to misbehave? I'd not want a script key logging for instance ..... Pointers here will be appreciated!

That is way above my knowledge. As a general rule, we tend to trust our script writers. If someone were to put something malicious in the script, I am sure that the word would be spread like a wildfire.

It's very good to be cautious about getting scripts, especially from unknown sources. The nice thing is that all user scripts are plain text, so if you are familiar with JavaScript, you can look at the code and see what it's doing. To my knowledge, the only non-script extensions (which wouldn't be plain text) that we encourage using is WME Toolbox and Tamper Monkey. Most user script authors comment what's happening in their code, so even if you're not super familiar with it, you can still see what's happening.

Also, you'll notice that at the top of every user script, there are @match and/or @include options, which shows which websites the scripts can run on (though many are using "regex" so they can match several variations of URLs, such as allowing it to run on both beta and production WME).

I agree with @jm6087 that there are enough good script writers in the WME community that if somebody decided to write malicious code, they would be found out, exposed, and ousted pretty quickly. Always get your scripts from links in the WME script forum and/or the Wazeopedia scripts pages and you should be fine. I've never had a problem and I have over two dozen scripts installed. :)
