PSA: We need more nominations!

Now that we have a Community Bulletin, we use it to highlight questions (more precisely scripts/apps/libraries) which deserve to be highlighted. All we ♦ moderators need to do is slap a tag on the question and it will get some extra attention.

Our idea was to have a Script/App/Library of the Month, not unlike Arqade has a Screenshot of the Week and Photography had a Photo of the Week. Since Stack Apps does not see a lot of traffic, we thought a month would be more appropriate.

Of course, we are not in the best position to determine which questions deserve this honour, but we've provided an example. This is definitely something we should do together as a community, and therefore we invite you to

  1. Submit scripts, apps and libraries you feel worthy of being featured as answers to this question, preferably with a short motivation. Use the following format:
    [tag:script/app/library]
    
    ## [Name of script, app, or library](URL to Stack Apps post)
    
    Motivation for choosing this script, app, or library
    
  2. Vote on other answers to this question to determine if a script/app/library gets featured and in which order.

Each month, we will feature the question with the highest voted answer that hasn't been featured yet. An answer needs to have positive score to qualify so that we know somebody else than the post author finds it useful (enough to be featured).

When we apply or remove the tag, we will save the question to the Wayback Machine to preserve the view count for analysis. Hopefully, this will give some data as to whether the experiment is successful. If it is, we will post a new question at the end of 2022 asking for suggestions for 2023, and questions which have already been featured will be eligible for featuring again.

Legacy Questions: Bringing Back The Old Questions Design

I'm not the maker of this script, but it's the best.

Most people don't love the new questions design, the -473 upvotes will tell. This fixes that, which, in my mind makes it worthy of a feature. In lieu of an option to use the legacy questions, this is a great script.

One-Click Reviews

Having to make two clicks every time you make a review in a review queue can be really annoying and time-consuming. This is especially so if you're making a review that requires selecting an additional option (Close, Leave Closed, Recommend Deletion, etc.).

As such, I wrote this user script that immediately submits your review (or opens the respective dialog) when you click on a review option, so you can make your reviews quicker. This also restores the pre-2021 behavior of the review queues, which would automatically submit when choosing an option.

Restore syntax highlighting on review and revision pages

Fixes this annoying bug reported in MSO that disables syntax highlighting on suggested edits and revisions.

AutoReviewComments - Pro-forma comments for SE

One of the first scripts I ever installed, and it has been a major productivity saver ever since. When moderating sites (as a regular user as well as a moderator), some situations come up over and over again and can benefit from a standard comment from this script. You can even add your own standard ones or modify the existing templates.

It's a pity that it's no longer maintained (various users, including me, have their own personal forks now). But even in its current form it's worth giving a try.

Non-English Language Question Analyser

I like apps that assists us in curating content. This one reports stuff it finds in chat and is extendable for what it needs to find.

Activity Indicator - see if you participated in a Q&A at a glance

A beneficial script if you're active across multiple sites.

And even if the script doesn't seem that useful to you, looking at the source, how it is organized and build for distribution is worth mentioning. I can learn a lot from that alone.

Custom Fonts User Script: Revert or Improve the Font Updates

We have a lot of revert scripts lately. Not sure what causes that. Among those the one to control the fonts used is popular, given its score. I therefore propose it as a script to be featured.
