    So, I made another program using AppleScript that's hopefully more useful than the last one I made (empty for OS X). Thanks for the honest input on the last program, and if you don't like this one, feel free to let me know. Thanks!

    Oh dear. Sorry to be blunt, but this isn't even a remotely good idea for an app.

    Can you write an app/script that would allow one to change the delay for marking a message as read in Mail?

    Maybe? It seems like it would be more of a software mod instead of an AppleScript program.

    There used to be a Terminal command, but it doesn't work as of Yosemite.

    OP:

    I don't want to discourage your interest in AppleScript but it would be better idea to create something that is helpful to people instead of pranks. Example: DiskMaker X http://diskmakerx.com which is made with AppleScript and its purpose is to create bootable OS X installers easier than with the CLI provided by Apple.

    DiskMaker X is likely too complicated compared to what you had in mind but its just one example of things that Apple overlooked in OS X that can be improved with AppleScript.

    Indeed it is too complicated right now. I posted this due to positive feedback from friends. I am working on more than just pranks though. If this forum wouldn't mind (I do apologize for the average-quality programs I've been posting every few days, I don't want to spam the forum), I made a "useful" program that deals with hidden files. Also, your feedback isn't discouraging, so don't worry. I'd rather know that my program isn't that useful so I can make improvements for the next program I make.

    May I suggest something like a poll or suggestion thread (if you haven't already?). If you're looking for a challenge to make the most of learning some more Applescript, canvasing some opinions for a project here or in the programming section would be a great start.
