Isn't someone around here getting paid by Curse?
just because you feel the Bukkit team deserves to be compensated for their work, there are many, many flaws. here are a few:
1. it's open source, that means that a lot of people not on the team contribute to it
2. Mojang didn't ask anyone to create a server wrapper. they chose to do it.
3. Bukkit is already receiving support from Multiplay and Curse
4. Bukkit is nothing without plugin developers creating plugins, so they would also have to be payed
after thinking about the subject, you'd be a fool to have picked yes.
People still don't get it when you go open source and basically doing it for free. It's all about personal growth. I can tell you this. the team learned more in the last 1,5 years than they did all the time before that with java. Which also is beneficial in their normal lives if they need the skills there, which often is case.
point 2 there is more to life than cash... If you say money makes you happy then you're a sad panda.
Its fairly obvious Bukkit shouldn't be paid, because of the massive can of worms that opens.
However they should make a donation every so often. If Bukkit didn't exist then multiplayer wouldn't exist. Why? Because no server would be able to run without rampant griefers and cheaters.
