Original content after ChatGPT filtration:
Although the OpenAI plugin marketplace has made strides in usability by making plugins searchable, there’s still room for improvement. The current user interface feels too condensed, making even the search functionality less effective than it could be.
One potential solution could be the introduction of a rating system. This would allow users to quickly gauge the quality and usefulness of a plugin based on community feedback. Additionally, a review section could provide more detailed insights into the experiences of other users, including their methods of using the plugins.
The current layout, which displays only eight plugins per page on PC browsers and four per page on mobile, could also benefit from a redesign. A scrollable plugin store would offer a more seamless and user-friendly browsing experience.
Lastly, transparency is crucial when it comes to external website access during plugin installation. Users should be fully informed when and why a plugin needs to access an external website. This would not only enhance security but also prevent the disorientation of being unexpectedly redirected offsite, which currently disrupts the browsing experience and forces users to start over.
By implementing these changes, we can make the OpenAI plugin marketplace more accessible, user-friendly, and efficient for all users.
Original content before filtration: Plugins are now searchable but the UI is far too condensed for even searching to be a complete solution. I saw mention of and agree that implementing a ratings system could improve navigation of plugins, perhaps even also a review section that would enable us to offer reviews and methods of use of those plugins.
A scrollable plugin store would also be much more useful and accessible, than the current 8 objects per page on PC browsers and i think 4 per page in mobile layout.
We should also be fully informed when and why a plugin needs to access an external website to be installed as this makes navigating the store even more tedious forcing us to start over and the list is rarely redisplayed in the same exact arrangement it was when we unexpeftedly ended up offsite and had to go back to the beginning again.
