There are no rules as such, but Waze does seem to like seeing the community contributions (well, most of them).
The very first addon script was demonstrated by Waze themselves at the Paris meet one year ago. :)

There are a few plugin developers now, but no designated place for discussion or collection of resources yet. It's been suggested, though there's possibly a feeling that it should maybe be kept a closed community.

Out of interest, what does your script do?

Edit: I found your script, which looks like an aid for looking up addresses and entering them into the editor. We have a similar script for the UK.

I think it would be nice to have one.

Also it would be nice to have "Plugin" subforum under map editing :)

I've requested a new sub-forum. Best keep everything on Waze. Plus I hate Google Groups! ;-)

Why a Google Group rather than just a sub-forum on here?

At the risk of being called elitist, again, I'd also like to see new plugins put in front of waze champs before being released to the wider community. Once they're released it's very difficult to put them back in the box!

There are an other upside with Google groups, when deploying via chrome Web store, a plugin can be deployed to the group only, so no need of sending betas around (unless u are using ff)

Id prefer a sub-forum any day, but however i can create a google group in a couple of minutes.

Getting a sub-forum in place is (i guess) a bit of a bigger challenge (not technically).
I believe there are lots of different questions that needs to be addressed before a sub-forum are added, starting with open or closed... (and i don't know how to ask for one. ;) )

It started out like so, a easy way to name city's to prevent smudged city's. But now it's a secondary function. It creates a context menu, With macros. Making it much easier to edit many segments, quicker. (and every macro will have a key shortcut.) more info to come when it's ready for a bigger user base, but pm me if u want to beta test it.
