I like this idea as well.
i was replying to try and help you. I was just saying that i think its your settings, try check you connection settings, and what browser are you using?
Mein Fuhrer, Doust seems to supposing dis device, eh, BukkitDev is incomplete. Da factz seemz to contradict your opinion. For examplez, De plugin submizzons iz no longer maintained anymore. Further, ze seemz to be a largish quantity of devz that are forzing widezpread usage of diz service.
I recommend ze chooze a new vektor of attak.
The intent is not to jump down the Bukkit team's throat, but instead to put the existing complaints into an amusing thread where it will garner enough attention to be seen and heard. Also, if it's not exactly done yet, they probably shouldn't have stopped accepting plugin submission threads which it appears to me they did.
The bukkit team takes a long time to find the time to fix stuff that isn't 100% broken and we want to make sure they are aware that this is almost as important as Bukkit itself. It hasn't been out that long, obviously, but they have a tendency to get distracted or busy with too many things, and it would be a shame if polishing BukkitDev features fell to the wayside of "We'll do it eventually." for the next 6+ months.
But seriously,i agree with the post!
ye i actually fixed it turns out safari on ipads doesnt do well with curse lol
seriously... never expected that...
You ruined this thread
Funny thing, had they not used a pay forum, they could have had community help in customizing it to integrate a plugin gateway
Just because it's a pay forum they can't mod it? I don't believe so. >.>
No, because it's a pay forum the COMMUNITY can't mod it. I'm not going to shell out $200 for a crappy forum software license just so I can contribute to a mod for the Bukkit forums.
Ahhh... Take a null version then mod it. That's about the best use for a null version.
I'm fairly certain recommending piracy on the forums is frowned upon. You also never know what you'll get with a nulled version. Had they chosen something free/OS like phpBB they could have had a communities worth of help with the plugin issue.
But xenforo is pretty good. I never recommended piracy, i just said use it as a base to work off. (not actually use it)
Problem is, with pay-for software a copy is a copy. Getting a free copy is piracy, even if you just use it to work from and don't actually host anything.
A try to lead this back to topic:
I feel a bit like Schrödinger's cat, where BukkitDev is the box, the coming annulment of the release forum is the radioactive material and the lack of attention is the poisonous gas.
This diagram shows the Insight statistics of the preview video I made, to give players and server owners a feeling of how a plugin I made can increase the gameplay experience, before they try it out. It's an RPG-like plugin and a preview, like the one I made, is essential to motivate people to try it out. The diagram shows the stats of two days and only the views from the embedded videos.
The number of calls (german: "Aufrufe") compared to each other speak for themself.
I feel demotivated.
If it was not because Curse was in charge, and Bukkit can't really do much about our requests and ideas, BukkitDev would have so much potential.
Haha, awesome topic title! +10 points of affore... eh awesomeness!
However, I still cant make an account on BukkitDev with Firefox, so love it? And collaboration with crappy Curse? Sry, no dice!
Edit: Just tried to make an account again and now its working!
Yeah, forum is way better to discover new plugins. For example if you just open first site, you can see 2 plugins (one for release and one for submissions) and if you open those two forums, you can find ton of new ones. And beacuse forums are sorted by last post, list of the plugins was constantly changing, allowing people to notice other plugins.
There needs to be a top-plugins page up front, or a "featured" section. Other people have made top-plugins voting sites (the link escapes me at the moment, I'm at work! Shhh) but although BukkitDev seems like it offers a lot as far as organizing - how the hell do you find anything on it?
Can anyone explain me, what is the reason for file approval? I kinda doubt they decompile every file and analyze it for malware search.
"It's a Curse requirement"
Jawohl mein Fuehrer.
I feel a little left out of this BukkitDev hate.
I'm sure I'd have something to add about it, but every time I try to go on and look at it - I find my eyes bleeding at a second log-on screen.
A classic lose-lose situation
you're complaining about a FREE service, providing FREE software for you, out of a developer's own SPARE TIME.
I could understand you being pissed if you were paying for this service, but it's a free service.
A free, incomplete service, may I add.
Also, the reasoning behind file moderation is to allow some form of safety barrier for the users. Usually, at the time your project is approved, your files will also be approved alongside it. It prevents you being able to upload malware which the users download without realising this - it allows us to catch this.
I don't see how this new approval system is confusing you? It's basically the same as the forum system, except it's now in two stages.
Forums did not have approval and I don't recall anyone uploading any malware. Why is this needed now?
There can be some security check, but at least allow users to download file. So if file is not yet approved, you would get big red text saying "file is not approved", but you could still download it.
And I don't hate BukkitDev. Actually, I quite like it. Just there are some really annoying shortcomings.
