Listing an application here on Stack Apps can be a lot of work. First you have to visit this question and copy the markdown. Some of those fields don't apply to UserScripts and some don't apply for commercial applications - those need to be removed. And then there is the thumbnail - you need to open a separate tab to upload an image and then copy-and-paste the URL. Then if you want to link to a certain license, you need to dig that up...

All in all, this can be a very time consuming process - especially if all you want to do is list a tiny UserScript. Therefore I have written a UserScript that (after you click on the toolbar button) asks the user a series of questions and then generates the page title, body (including markdown), and tags. There is even a convenient button to upload the thumbnail image :)

For the curious - this very listing was generated using the script.

This should be intergrated with StackApps by default. – Jonathan. Feb 13 '12 at 11:49
If possible the 'tags' should auto-complete like the main page does.. I find the only thing I need to review is the tags. otherwise perfect! :P – rlemon Feb 21 '12 at 15:10
@rlemon: Thank you - I can easily make the tags auto-complete just like the actual tag entry box. – Nathan Osman Feb 21 '12 at 19:10
That would turn this script from uber to epic! – rlemon Feb 21 '12 at 19:40
