Bukkit and the plugins are great and all people concerned (developers, bukkit team, people helping in the forums) are doing a great job. But bukkit is on a rocky road and the usuability for the admin and user isn't at the point where it should be. This thread is ONE part of several threads, please do me the favour and read them all and only reply in here with information which help this thread become productive. Thanks.. Bukkit has the following issues: Permissions... different plugins, different concepts, complicated, error prone and shattered Help.. complicated, not to the point, not really translatable / customizable. Aliases.. Complicated and plugin specific Forums.. Difficult to navigate and missing structures Plugins.. Plugin Standards allow for to many issues I already mentioned some of the issues in this thread (only read if you want to, but usefull feeback in there from lukegb and evilseph!) : http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/help-support-and-release-threads.19660/ The forum structure and how the release threads are handled atm make it very hard for an admin or an developer to use the plugin. I would like to suggest the following changes in structure and look. Bukkit.org - Bukkit News - Community News... - Website Feedback Bukkit - Bukkit Help - Bukkit Discussions - Bukkit Tools - Recommended Builds Bukkit Plugins - Get Plugins - Approved Plugins - Plugins - Unsupported Plugins - Non-Working Plugins Bukkit Plugin Help - [MECH] Plugin Help - etc... - Essential Help - Minecart Mania Help - etc Bukkit Plugin Development - Plugin Submissions - Plugin Requests - WIP - Resources Other - Minecraft Discussions - Show of your Minecraft Server - Offtopic IF we still have a sub - sub form the sub - sub forum should become better visable. So why the changes? First, to support changes in the plugin release process and changes with fill,. Second, the forums should be easy to navigate and information should be quickly retrievable. At the moment it is almost impossible to quickly get needed information or help. Look at threads from Minecart Mania, Essentials or other bigger / popular plugins. Questions are repeated again and again and release notes are drowned. Having forums dedicated to releases and threads only writeable to the OP would allow a lean structure and quick retrievable information. Seperated Help Forumd for the different plugin types would make it easy to search for common issues and keep the amount of posts in the same thread low. Having dedicated forums for the bigger / popular plugins would help the developers of those plugins to focus on supporting their plugin and keep the amount of work for the forum admins low too. Some standards for posting should be given though: a) search before you post b) use the following template for your subject [Pluginname] Issue, eg. [Permissions] Can't place blocks [Permissions] How to setup SQL [NoCheat] Getting kicked for moving [MM] Obisidian blocks don't work anymore correclty What do you think?
