It worked fine for me in Firefox until the recent WME update. Now, because of the interface change, there are no controls available. But it still marks red roads, loops needing a node, and revcons (and perhaps others) at close zoom levels. So it's not totally useless, if you had it set to mark those items before losing the controls.

And others have noted that the author hasn't been around in a while, so you may be right about it being orphaned.

I think all of those alerts are in Toolbox rather than Validator.

I am unable to get validator to function properly in Chrome since the WME update this week. I can't seem to get it to load and I am not very familiar with scripts and extensions to diagnose the problem. I never get the Validator in the Left Hand Pane anymore. I have tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it with no change. I really miss all the highlighted information that it provides. Do you have any suggestions?

So as a slightly more seasoned editor when I draw a new segment I check it for connection... for revcon... for naming... for elevation..... and my valadator helps with that.... when I run a report is my valadator highlights and bad connection or a unnamed segment.... it's a good chance it's a new bee Editors.... if nothing else someone who might need some help..... thanks JD

Nevermind . I got it. New editors sometimes make a mess, and validator reports highlights the errors, and the users.

How can you discover new editors this way?

Validator highlights problems the new bee Editors leave in there wake.....making them easer to spot..... for me in Brooklyn NY anyway... thanks JD

Does anyone know how to get in touch with the developer? I would be happy to throw my hat in the ring.
