This post is now outdated and replaced by the below link: http://forums.bukkit.org/threads/read-me-first-plugin-requests-guide.81209/ Here are some basic guidelines for submitting plugin requests: DOs Check if it has already been made or implemented in a different plug-in (Search) Be patient Thank users who attempt to fulfill your request, even if they fail. Go into detail about your request. The more information, the more likely someone is to understand and complete a plugin. DONTs Offer money or demand money. See rule 5 of the forum rules. Bump the thread repeatedly. Reply to a thread just to say you agree with the idea. Use terrible spelling and grammar. It's hard to understand you. Overuse punctuation. Nobody likes "!!!!!!!!!!!!!" in a conversation. Request a huge plugin that'll take weeks to complete without understanding the low chance of success. We know you want cows that can shoot chickens out of the pig which is stuck to an everexploding creeper, while working out sums and then turning them into an MD5 hashcode. But that'll take too long and frankly, is ridiculous. Cows can't do math. Following these guidelines will make your request more appealing to someone looking to fill a few requests. UPDATE: When requesting a plugin, state ALL requires information in the thread, it is not enough to ask them to PM you for details. Thanks. Updated June 3rd, 2012.
