    Thank you all for your time and work to have made this community great and to have made long-term, fun multiplayer Minecraft possible. Good luck on your future pursuits.

    The cycle has begun again. As Bukkit replaced hMod, a new mod will emerge to replace Bukkit. Hope to see you guys around.

  12. Bye.. thanks for your great work.

    Also, doesn't anybody else think it's a way better idea to just resign instead of ruin a whole project (perhaps even the Minecraft server community!) with a pointless DMCA claim that just wastes everybody's money?
  13. All I can really say is Thank You! for all of the time and effort that you guys have poured into this project, to make Minecraft as a whole what it truly is today.

    Even though I've been a member on the forums and active user of Bukkit / Craftbukkit as a whole, since February 10th 2011 I haven't really stopped looked back and written a proper "Thank You" message to all of the hard workers, but better late than sorry I guess.

    From the bottom of my heart,
    Thank you for all of your hard work and love for the project, it's sad to see so many of you go.

    Thanks for everything guys, Minecraft would've never been the same without you fellas...
  15. I gots an idea!
    Bukit get new staff and new staff save bukkit and everyone be is happy!
    who bukkit staff still stays to fite?
  16. It wasn't a pointless DMCA claim... Mr. Wolfe has been updating this project for the past 2 years under false pretenses. Not sure if this link is allowed here, but I'll post it anyway: Explanation on Reddit. However, back on topic, thank you to everyone who has updated and stood behind Bukkit for all of these years. You will all be missed. :(

    Just to screw with Mojang can all you guys say that Mojang cant use your code either?

    I would lol.
  19. Goodbye, my friends!
  20. Thanks everyone who spent so much time on this project. It's unfortunate it had to end this way :c

    Goodbye Lolmewn. Just read your post on your blog, here: and I feel bad for you and the other staff who worked so much on what was meant to be a nonprofit organization. Without you guys, Minecraft really wouldn't be as popular as it is. I totally agree with your points in your post and think that Mojang won't be able to revive Bukkit or Minecraft after this mess. They've really wrecked their own project through their EULA responses & unfair treatment of all of you.

  21. The downfall of bukkit has begun. We need a new server mod that all of our plugins will run, should we fork bukkit?

  22. Forking Bukkit wouldn't be enough, as any and all forks of Bukkit containing the same code would get shut down with the DMCA. We would need to rewrite tons of code to make a new project.

    Thank you Bukkit for the wonderful commits and commitments to the project
    ^- Get that joke :D?

  24. Thank you everyone for your glorious contributions to the project. I'm extremely grateful that you guys saw time to work on Bukkit, and I want to wish you the best of luck with whatever you're doing next.

    Now, for the next bit:
    I know it seems dark for most of the community now that Spigot and Cauldron's gone, and bukkit seems to be falling apart as well, but we're part of a healthy community.
    I'm certain we can all manage to get past this bump in the road somehow, although it may take time.
  25. You all have been awesome.

    As a point of order, will any new plugins ever be approved in BukkitDev, or is BukkitDev formally dead?

  26. Thank you to everybody who left for what you did, you were all amazing! <3
  27. Thanks Bukkit team for creating an amazing API that made me want to learn Java just so I could mess with Minecraft for my small little survival server. Rip <3
  28. Hasn't that already happened? :confused:

    I'd like to thank all those that've gone and also those who still try to get everything running again.
