When selecting a script to use, there are a few things you can do to ensure its quality:

  • Check last update date: An old date doesn’t always mean a script is broken. But if it hasn’t been updated in over a year, it’s typically outdated.
  • Read the 1st thread post: From the script info page, click View Thread. Here you can read details about the script’s features and usage.
  • Read last few thread pages: Read posts to get a good idea of how users feel about the script, how active the developer is, and if there are any outstanding issues.
