I play games in a lot of places so my locations are always changing. Instead of the location list auto-populating with EVERY place you have ever played, instead have a button where you can add places you normally play.

For instance: My location list is populated with 21 different locations, but some of those are cons which are only once a year, so they take up space.

Actually I'd like like it if the location box could autocomplete again. The field has a different name on each page or something so firefox doesn't hold history on it. Even more useful would be allowing history on player names.

Aldie had to increase the limit on how many were shown, once I exceeded it. (It used to be 100, IIRC.)

It would be cool if it would autocomplete (as suggested in earlier comment) or there were a different link to click to show e.g. the 10 most commonly used locations, in addition to the link to click to show all of your locations.

There is a utility that can do that. Basically you enter your most commonly used locations into a box, and the script will remember and make those locations into clickable buttons.

Is there a way to delete locations from the ever expanding list?

Nope. This replaces the ever-expanding list.

Yes.

But you won't like it.

You have to manually delete the location from every play that features it.

See? I told you that you wouldn't like it. ;)

I would suggest renaming your popular locations along the lines of:

aaaaHome
aaaaSecretConvention
aaaaTuesdayGameNightLocation

etc.

Although, the slight issue is that you will need to use something remarkably similar to Chris's method to do it, edit existing locations instead of deleting them.

It will set you up for the future through...
