    Ok, So my question is, If a plugin developer has been inactive for 2-3+ months without any notice is it ok for another developer to take over the development of one of their plugins if the plugin is inactive/discontinued and is well over 5 Rec Builds overdue.

    If anyone could let me know if this is allowed it would be vastly appreciated, and if it is allowed then there are some more questions I have

    OP = Original Post (aka First Post/Submission Post)

    1. Should the original authors name be discussed in the new plugins OP
    (I am sure the answer is yes on this one, but it doesn't hurt to make sure)

    2. Should the new plugin's OP link back to the OP of the old plugin?

    3. To what extent is the new developer allowed to alter the original plugin?

    Thank you, That clears up a lot of confusion for me, and opens the door for me to resurrect some old outdated plugins that I enjoyed. Thanks for the reply
