Banned from BukkitDev

Postby Drakia » January 23rd, 2013, 12:11 am

Seems as though mbaxter disliked me asking if his mother dropped him on his head when he as a child, and he banned me from BukkitDev. And all because of their stupid no-external-download-links rule. If only the approval times weren't 8+ hours I wouldn't need external links.

Welp, that's a damned shame. I still plan on keeping the plugins working with the latest Bukkit versions for the time being. Not sure how much longer I'm going to work on plugins for a project that's digging its own grave though.

On that note, I hereby grant permission to anybody who wants it to upload my projects to BukkitDev under their name. I may not be able to offer support there, but you are free to direct users here. If anybody is interested I also kept copies of the project descriptions for all of my plugins.

While I agree with your position, you do seem to have a knack for getting in trouble. It may have been the direct insult. ;) Removing the project affects everyone, though. They wouldn't do this if it was WorldEdit or Essentials, so why Stargate? Also, I see outside links all the time. Maybe it's allowed when it's to dev versions?

Anyway, I hope you at least maintain the plugins until there's a suitable API replacement in Spout and/or MCAPI... assuming they don't make the same mistakes. Craftbukkit doesn't need to dig its own grave. It's going to be buried either way.

If you need any help with distribution I can sponsor you some hosting as I work for a hosting company.
Got pretty confused trying to find the latest version of iChat!

*looks at forum*
I rent plenty of servers, and have plenty of space and bandwidth for hosting. Thanks though. This just means it's harder (Though far from impossible, my Google ranking is pretty decent) to find my plugins.

You should post your plugin on spigotmc.org, I don't want to see this awesome plugin die. I was so pissed when I heard you got banned :/

Wow finally found you, Stargates is one of my favorite plugins, and players on my little server were starting to fret that it wouldn't be updated.

If there is anything that can be done to help you get exposure for your plugins let me know. I see a few people (including me) posting on the bukkit site for stargates, i wonder if ill get banned if i post a link here :)

It probably won't get you banned, but last time people did that they actually replaced "thedgtl.net" with "google.com" on their entire forum, it was kind of lame.
