    It's crazy how something once so magnificent has failed to provide so consistently.
    As a member of the community for 7 years, still supporting a large amount of Bukkit's users and was a dev.bukkit administrator for awhile, it upsets me with the current state of the site(s) and how little care is given now.
    Here is a small list of things still wrong with the site, that frustrate me:

    • Monthly community updates from Dev.Bukkit are gone and no actual progress has been made for years.
    • Per-project Forums are still non-existant after redesign from 3 years ago.
    • Dev.Bukkit forced account to merge with "Fandom team", wtf?!
    • Text editor is still garbage in Dev.Bukkit.
    • Still can't edit some projects after the merge 3 years ago, raised 3 times in total now.
    • Giftcards in the authors store are pointless now.
    • Things like all of "ZombieStryker" plugins have mode downloads than WorldEdit are allowed.
    • Forums are a ghost town as a result of abandonment and lack of care.
    I've tried to keep my users coming through Bukkit to download my plugins / find documentation but I am very close to closing it all and moving elsewhere.

    @A5H73Y And the point of this post is?
    Did you report stuff for those projects? Did you give feedback about everything?
    What lack of care for the forums are you talking about?

    Just having a rant in hope it's heard by someone that can do something.
    Yes, I've messaged MrFlamegoat several times, and it was the reason the Communication posts started after he had a meeting about the points I made. Now the messages are ignored and theres nobody communicating about anything Bukkit / Minecraft related and it's a shame considering how large this community once was.
    The majority of the time you are the only moderator online and while you do very well to support, there is little activity on these Forums and there isn't much engagment from anybody higher up. The last post in the dev.bukkit status was 2 years ago for instance.

    @A5H73Y The rant is heard now, I will see if I can do something with it as well.
    Don't know about the stuff with MrFlameGoat, I am poking on the background to get stuff rolling.
    I am currently the only moderator indeed (together with my trusty bot). But that is enough currently, it is enough because it is indeed quiet on here. And I totally agree that it is a shame, would love to see this place big again.

    Been here a long time too. Little confusing since the forums seem new & have none of my post history. I digress..

    Still remember the implosion. Sympathetic to your feelings about the current state of affairs.

    I've since moved on to Spigot resources & Paper builds though I will never forget the good times running Bukkit. I still check in from time to time. I dunno why. Habit I guess.

    Best of luck to you!

    Simple. Bukkit died because Minecraft died.

    I think Minecraft is alive and well, and is actually making a resurgence. Spigot and other servers have a thriving community, I think the only reason Bukkit has become this stagnent is because of little to no development / communication.

    Devs quit, spigotmc is making new builds though.
    Other staff is not needed right now.

    very sad state things are in. it hasn't gotten any better half a year later. I'm struggling to submit the simplest of plugins, but it gets denied and the only answer I can get from staff is a link to the guidelines. really pisses me off that someone is taking the time to give an answer, but the answer is absolutely useless. I was a responsible dev and read that guidelines page before submitting my plugin, which I explained to them each time I asked why it is being denied.

    seems to be a waste of time to even attempt using the dev bukkit website.
