Be nice to the script authors!

This forum contains details of some fantastic scripts. They add massive value to the Waze editing experience and I can honestly say that my score would not be half of what it currently is without the invaluable assistance of these scripts.

They are written by people like you & me. They do not get paid for it. They don't get any extra perks or privileges. They don't get a cut of your editing points (and God knows, they deserve it). They forgo time spent with family, friends, alcohol, the latest console games, books (can you still buy those?). They put in all this effort with no more reward than the kind words they get from us and the click of a "thanks" button.

So please be nice to them. Don't moan, or whine or complain.

If you want to suggest a new feature for a script, by all means do so. But if the author doesn't feel it's appropriate or doesn't want to do it, that's entirely up to them.

If a script stops working (probably because of a Waze update), don't just complain about it. Post a good description of the problem with relevant details - help the author to fix it. Remember - most script problems get fixed a damn sight faster than problems with official Waze products.

Above all, don't forget to hit thanks! We can't give them anything else - at least you can give them that.
