EDIT DECEMBER 2013: This post no longer reflects my views on the project, BukkitDev, or Curse. Hi Bukkit, I posted this a couple of days ago in another thread but it received no reply and I figure this would be a more appropriate place to post it and perhaps get an official answer to my question as well as promote friendly discussion on the topic. Please read it in full before replying to this. The entire post in it's entirety can be found below. It contains my thoughts on Curse holding pack the potential of BukkitDev, the future of BukkitDev and where it is headed today, as well as a few questions I have related to BukkitDev. Thanks. EvilSeph (I know you're busy moving but some clarification on this would be great if possible.) TnT mbaxter Because nobody ever took the initiative to actually turn the idea of the fill into a real thing, where plenty of resources were available to make it happen. Instead, it went on without ever being made until they decided to use Curse's system. But I'm sorry for saying that. So, I drop my argument to replace it with a new one. Personally I wouldn't mind Curse handling BukkitDev, but I feel that you guys should at least have access to the code and be able to make changes. It's almost been a year and the forums haven't transitioned over to BukkitDev simply because we're still waiting on features from it, and things suggested months ago still haven't been added. Many of the features on BukkitDev are highly customized towards other Curse sites and have absolutely no purpose or reason to be on BukkitDev (I assume because all of the sites use the same backend code), such as the repository, semi-normal file statuses, Curse-client related features, etc. The reward points were added months ago but still aren't functional. If you could actually have power over BukkitDev I wouldn't mind Curse "taking over" the forums. They can put up ads, throw up a Curse bar, whatever they want for all I care, as long as we actually get a working BukkitDev. But I don't think it's acceptable for them to have complete control over BukkitDev and not actually listen to what the community using it wants (that's like someone offering you a free Minecraft server - but all you get is mod, and they get complete control over the files, plugins etc.). I think BukkitDev could turn out to be a great site if the feedback given by the community was ever actually implemented. And as I said earlier the result of these features being added and things being fixed are holding back the community from moving on (e.g. transitioning the forums to BukkitDev). I'll be happy to spam the JIRA (Site Bukkit) with tickets with everything I consider wrong, broken, etc. with BukkitDev - but seeing as there's things that haven't been added/fixed that were reported over 5 months ago - does that give any kind of a better chance of those things actually getting done?
