                • Optionally add Explanation to .bash_aliases as a comment

                  Should be optional, but I'd love to see the explanation added to the .bash_aliases file as a comment. The formatting might be a pain unless it's just added as one long line.

                  • Show all aliases I created, even if I'm not using them.

                    If I forget to use an alias I created, there is no simple way to find it to add it. All aliases I create should be available on my user page, even if I turned them off.

                      • Delete an Alias

                        My first Alias was a mistake... It could be a good thing to be able to delete it without contacting administrators.

                        • allow account deletion

                          Let there be a way user can delete their account along with their aliases posted by them.

                          • Allow the possibility to edit my alias

                            Something happened with the alias I uploaded and the style is bad and I can't edit it.

                            Also I guess it's possible that I could make my alias better in the future and it would be good to edit it

                            • Make changes in my aliases available more quickly

                              I noticed that, if one changes her aliases (add or remove used aliases), then try to source them in her terminal, it may take several minutes before getting the updated list.

                              For instance, I removed one alias from my own ones, about 10 min. ago, anyway it's still in the list retrieved thanks to "wget -q -O https://alias.sh/user/$ALIAS_SH_USER_ID/alias". This is quite long!

                              • Allow formatting of alias explanation

                                Currently the explanation box wraps everything without saving layout/format of the entered information.

                                For example I wanted to paste sample output from a working alias to show others what the command does, unfortunately it is hard to read once it has been submitted as everything as been wrapped and line breaks removed.

                                • Allow changing email address when logging in using github

                                  Currently, to change an email address, you're required to type in current password, but there is none since github was used to sign in.

                                  I have several email address registered in github and alias.sh is using the wrong one.

                                  • Enable login via Github

                                    Since the site targets power users and developers such a site definitely needs Github login. I think Github login even more important than Google login for this site.

                                      • Would be easier to identify an account by user name instead of user id

                                        When one wants to get its online aliases, she must remember her user id, in order to write the proper URL to be retrieved thanks to wget.
                                        As this id is is a number, it is not typically easy to remember. That would be far easier if one could use her user name instead: eg. 'wget https://alias.sh/user/userName/alias/ instead of https://alias.sh/user/12345/alias/
                                        TIA
