Is there a place in Moodle now for 'useful' scripts which do 'useful things'?

      Description

      I have just stumbled upon this forum page http://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=7373 which references a 'hidden' Moodle page which can set all user timezones to a given value all at once. (I was just about to do this on the live database and was wishing there was another way...)

      The page in question is http://yoursite/admin/timezone.php, and it's still in there (the forum post is ~5 years old), and my point is twofold:

      1) how many other pages are there in Moodle, which are hidden, which do very useful things, and:
      2) can they be made available to admins in a separate section of the admin menu?

      Another example is the userpics page, which is useful and not too many peope are aware of.

          We have detected that this issue has been inactive for over two years and also did not collect many votes. It is possible that it has been already implemented in a more recent version of Moodle, or it is not highly demanded. There are unlimited number of ways Moodle functinality can be expanded and improved but we would like to concentrate on the features that will benefit majority of users, and which can not be implemented as plugins. If you have a suggestion for improving Moodle core, and there is no open issue for it in the tracker, please start a new forum discussion to see how many other users agree with you, and then create a new issue providing as many details as possible.
