    Hey I'm a server owner, and I recently checked bukkit only to find that all the staff left and everyone is talking about alternatives to bukkit! I don't know what is going on, so can someone fill me in on what has happened to bukkit? Is bukkit, as they say, "dead"? Thanks :)

    ask mojang about it

    "hey jeb, what happened to all the unpaid developers at bukkit who threw the bukkit in.. any plans to make your own server less shit now, maybe finish the api?"

    Yes, Bukkit is dead.

    Basically what happened was Mojang claims the Bukkit project is owned by them (which technically it is), Wolverness, then files a DMCA takedown, and removes the CraftBukkit repositories which effectively kills Bukkit. Then pretty much all of the staff leave, the forums are handed over to Curse, DBO plugins get lower quality screenings, and yeah...

    Not going to touch over alternatives but I highly recommend TridentSDK, being completely safe from DMCA, and designed much faster than the original minecraft server (and I can safely say most other alternatives, including popular ones)
