    Bukkit takes great pride in providing the community with plugins that are free from malicious code through our plugin hosting site, BukkitDev. This commitment to the community means we need to have many talented and dedicated individuals available to help us with file and project approvals around the clock and around the world.

    Due to amount of hard work, time, and dedication it takes to provide this service to the community, we are looking for more talented, trustworthy individuals to help us keep approval times low. Developers want to see their plugins approved regularly and within a reasonable amount of time, while server admins want to be able to download the latest version of the plugins they use as quickly as possible.

    Applicants must:
    • Have Java experience
    • Have submitted at least one plugin to BukkitDev that is not a basic generic plugin
    • Be a good community member
    • Be able to connect to and be readily available on IRC (Esper)
    If you think you would be a good fit in our BukkitDev Approval Team and would like to help us keep the queue moving at a reasonable pace, we invite you to submit an application to join our team of dedicated individuals who tirelessly go through hundreds of projects and files each week. Please apply at bukkitdev -dash- applications -at- bukkit -dot- org with the details below:

    The subject of your email should be:
    Code:
    BukkitDev Application: [Username]
    
    The body of your email should be:
    Code:
    Name:
    Age:
    Location and Timezone:
    Bukkit Forums Username:
    BukkitDev Username:
    IRC Username:
    Why do you feel you would make a good BukkitDev Staff member?
    When are you available to dedicate time to BukkitDev?
    Have you used BukkitDev before to host your projects? If so, provide links!
    
    (Hint: Ctrl+Shift+V pastes without formatting...)

    As we're fully aware of how much delays within the Approval Queue affect plugin developers and server admins alike, we've decided to promote someone intimately familiar with the approval process to the role of BukkitDev Team Lead. Effective immediately, Gravity's sole responsibility is to ensure your experience with BukkitDev is a fantastic one. As part of his new role, he'll be actively handling BukkitDev Approval Team applications and managing the BukkitDev Approval Team.

    Please join me in congratulating Gravity on his new role and responsibilities!

    What is ment by "basic generic plugin" if I may ask. (Like which features are not "basic generic") Would a plugin that gives you XP based on who you killed, what that person was wearing and with what you killed the person be generic?

    If there are more than 2 other plugins that do the exact same thing, it's probably generic. However, what we're looking for is your knowledge with the language.

    I think I will just try to make the plugin I mentioned above, and apply, and see what happens

    Is resending a application allowed? I don't want to be like a spam bot seeing 2 apps from me as it could look like I am too anxious but I haven't submitted since almost 1 year ago plus I am much more knowledgeable in Java and other languages then when I first submitted.

    Not a problem. Just either reply to your old message, or note that it's a new application somewhere in there.

    TnT are you currently reviewing / accepting applications? I've noticed the response time on project approvals seems to be like a week at the moment. I've just submitted my application :)
