I've been trying to think of what I can do to fix TradeMe, huge community but not very social.

And I thought, A GreaseMonkey script, to pass auctions that you like, to Digg.

My problem,  I'm just hopeless at  JavaScript

So are there any tips before I start this learning spurt.

Was thinking of doing the whole scrapping idea, but this seems so much easier.

Maybe i'll look into this if and when I get time, I have this big gripe with Trademe "expiring" your saved searches.

I have been making up numerous greasemonkey scripts to customise facebook for the plebs and especially Myspace which is a pig.

Hi paradoxsm,  I have not really looked at myspace, to social for me.

I found a couple of GreaseMonkey scripts for TradeMe, I hope I can use the information from this to get the script

I looked at digg delicious and reddit and they all support nice urls to submit stuff

I had a quick look at trademe, it's nice use of div's makes scraping the information for the title and information.
The URL, I guess javascript is like php and has that in a system viable.

I don't like how the pages have no expire date on them,  that's because the page has no-cache on,
but it's sad, as it would be nice to see it was closer to the auction closing time. Still it's cheaper as they save 32bytes off each of there bar-zillion page views.

Would like to see what scripts you have.

meh, maybe it's not worth the time. Hardly any one uses greasemonkey so it wont generate enough flow to make it worth doing.

I think the digg like site would dump all the auctions as it would be like advertising.
