I'm creating a module called "LifePlus" but I'm not sure where to put it. Do I put it in the scripts folder?

No -- you definitely should NOT store any of your own scripts/patterns/rules/whatever in the folders supplied with Golly. If you follow the folder structure recommended in Help > Hints and Tips then all your scripts should be in a separate folder called My-scripts (or any other name you prefer). If you put your LifePlus module in that folder then all your Python scripts can use it by doing "import LifePlus".

So basically I should put it together with all my other scripts? (In the same folder?)

Yes.
