Approved then Unapproved

  1. Thanks for all the support (from most of you) after editing the description once again it has been approved!


    So I submitted my project, UselessTNT and I needed to edit the description to include more information. I went ahead and did that and then it was approved. But then almost immediately unapproved again. I would like to know if this is a bug or not.


    Here is a screenshot of my private messages proving the issue.

    Oh great. Another TNT blocking plugin. :/
    Because we totally needed that.
  3. This one has more features and it is also my first plugin, hopefully this plugin will teach me how to make better plugins! In fact I am coding a new one now!

    You don't need to release it. When we have over 200 tnt blocking plugins, we don't need another one. If you are going to make one (which is a good way to learn), please don't submit it. This plugin is completely unneeded and only clutters BukkitDev. I'm sorry, but seriously. We don't need another.

    I'm going to have to agree with Daniel on this one.

    I have to agree. TNT blocking is just.. TOO MUCH.

    5% of our plugins = TNT Blocking

    Somebody cant upload a plugin just because other people have already created something similar?
    As useless as it may be.. Getting annoying looking at new plugins and most of the posts being " is this really needed?" "Not another one" -.-

    It is pure speculation that the plugin wasn't approved because there are already 200 others that do the same. I've never heard of a case where a plugin was declined for that reason. Maybe NuclearW just clicked the wrong button and then corrected his mistake immediatly.

    What does the PM that "requests changes to UselessTNT" say? I'd just follow the instructions of that mail to get your plugin approved.
  9. But this one will have more functionality than others. Check the UselessTNT page for more details of what I am adding to it. As far as I'm aware there are no other plugins that do what I am making this one do.

    Of course I can see why people are getting annoyed but at the end of the day I was asking why it got approved and the declined and now most of the comments are saying that we don't need another TNT blocking Plugin.

    The pm says that the Plugin needs more description and it has a link to the bukkit wiki with what the description should include which I am writing right now.

    This may have more features, but it still is not needed. It's still a TNT blocking plugin and it does the same things as other plugins, just in a different way. My suggestion: Make a few PRIVATE plugins, then go to the Plugin Requests forum and fulfill some requests that actually are needed.

    Agreed with this, while I don't believe there is a reason to decline a plugin become of this, and I doubt that is why it was unapproved, but NOBODY here needs another TNT blocking plugin, what people do need, however, is in the requests section and a lot of the things there are very simple and quick to make, you should try that instead.

    Oh! Super duper TNT Blocker!

    if(e.getBlock().getType() == Material.TNT) { e.setCancelled(true); } }

    // Derp! Protected plugin!

    Yeah, but mostly the experience of getting a plugin working is the best part, thats very rewarding and inspires you to do more, generate ideas as you see what is possible with Java/Bukkit

    Please keep this post on topic.

    As for the yet another tnt plugin, I have no problem with these plugins being made and distributed.

    Why you guys busting his balls, it's a same project but made by another person, nothing wrong imo.

    Jeeze, lay off guys...
    Firstly, everybody here who submits plugins had to start somewhere.
    In particular, those of you who do develop plugins, should understand this better than us mere users.
    It would be nice if you could be a little more supportive of the new guy, even if his choice of project is in a overly well represented class of plugin.
    Secondly, if he has indeed produced a TnT nerfer with new features not present in others of its type, then bring it on, I'm all for improvements and variety of choice in Plugins.
    No offence, but this thread sounds like a bunch of Artists arguing, not Programmers!;)

    We are encouraging him to develop, and there's absolutely nothing wrong with him making another TNT plugin. There is something wrong with him submitting it, though.

    It was what @Evenprime said, hit the wrong button and changed it to what it needed to be.

    You can also just PM the moderator in question if this ever happens again, also. As sad as it might be to say, it might get you less flak from others who decide to go off topic and simply be argumentative about your plugin ignoring your post.

    To the OP: I apologize for my harshness above.
    It was completely uncalled for. However I do still suggest not releasing a plugin like this one unless you're absolutely sure that it will help the community. There are tons of plugins similar to yours, and while I feel it's a great learning experience, I don't think it needs to be released. Please think about it before you release. :)

    Don't see anything wrong imo, maybe hes releasing for some feedback.

    I like to encourage these plugins. Maybe they can be simply sorted better in dbo to get desirable results for everyone.
  26. If you read the BukkitDev you would know that that is not what the plugin does. It replaces the TNT block with a dirt block (soon to be configurable)

    Thanks for all the support (from most of you) @NuclearW I will be sure to do that next time! Also the plugin has been approved now since editing the description!

    if(e.getBlock().getType() == Material.TNT) { e.getBlock().setType(Material.DIRT); }
    getConfig(); will allow you to use ID's to replace the TNT with.
  28. So would it be
    in the code?

    Something like
  30. Thanks! I think I have figured this one out! Thanks for all your help!
