That's the key right there, I think. If the author specifically gives up their rights, then it's fair game for anyone to work on it. But when the author says nothing or simply disappears, then they haven't really given up their rights, and that's where we are with Validator.

I think that's hard to enforce. These scripts are written by Wazers and hosted elsewhere. Now if Waze wanted to compensate them for making WME better...

As far as I know he was against it and prevented it by encryption. He was fully aware of its rights about Validator and didn't want to let it go

Time will tell... we just have to wait and hear from the writer. And BTW, Java and JavaScript are very different languages and JQuery is based on JS.

Ya, I know. It is highly obfuscated. Plus the encrypted part. I think the first problem is that it is not able to create the menu. How to make that better is anyone's guess. Even if the warning not to try to reverse engineer did not exist I am a Java programmer, not JavaScript (very different).

no patch is possible since the script is encrypted. The only way to fix the current validator is by the creator himself.

Do we have any chance that someone will pick it up and build for the community a new validator from scratch ?

:roll:

Wishful thinking for 2017 :mrgreen:
