No, they just need good features to protect users from spam etc.

Ya, but anyone can constantly create a simple external window in a timeout over and over--which will constantly pop up over things, or worse they can script it to create multiple external windows all over the place. And that's without even needing an alwaysontop.
What kind of feature will stop that? If you're gonna factor in all the dangerous crap people can do with GS2 then you have to consider alwaysontop isn't the only dangerous thing.

I know, I'm just saying that external windows aren't a bad idea, they just need certain features to protect the user.

It's not my job to decide what to do to prevent this, that's up to Stefan to figure out. I'm just saying that it is a very good idea.

Well if he has external windows there are already problems with spamming introduced. Adding alwaysontop isn't going to introduce anything more potent than external windows themselves, so I'm all for it.

In all honesty, we really shouldn't worry about people pulling crap like this. If they do, you close your client, report it on the support center, don't go on that server anymore and the perpetrator(s) gets banned. Simple.

I found getdesktopresolution() in scriptfunctions_client.txt but it seems to just return "0,0,0" for me.

I know you were saying resizing Graal window -- I mentioned that canResize does not affect a window's behavior on Mac.
Man, now I got reputation on this post saying "Mac Sucks".

Was that even relevant?

I got more negative rep from people miss-understanding me then positive rep from submitting things to the code gallery. My eval function got me all of like +2 rep points...

Then make positive reputation worth more than negative?

Would be cool if it was like positive rep only, no negative. That way people still get awarded for good things, and not punished by people who only notice bad things. Then just raise the standards for reputation.

When you give negative rep, it only reduces their points by half of your rep power. Giving positive still gives your full rep power though.
