    This discussion reminds me of countless musicians who spend all their time choosing a name for the band instead of gigging.

    I still don't understand why a new name is needed, whose idea it is, whether or not the pocketmine team agree... and even if that is the case, it can be done at a later date. What we need now is action, not more debate.

    +1 << 64. Very well said. The longer we sit here quibbling about names, the longer it takes to get things done. PM has a lot to catch up on. Shoot first, ask questions later.

    I suggest PocketMine-MP2. (I'm joking, probably)

    I completely agree. I am probably going off topic but, We all need to put our knowledge together and come from forks back to the original code.

    This is probably what this whole business about new name is about:

    Ok now we have just defeated Eurasia with the aid of our ally Eastasia. Congratulations, our troops. Oh guess what, we have just defeated Eastasia with the aid of our ally Eurasia. We have always been in alliance with Eurasia, right? Oh people of Oceania, Eurasia threw that bomb pad-printed "Made in Oceania" into our capital city! We need help from Eastasia to get revenge!

    I don't understand how the analogy applies, but this situation is getting stupid, and the thread seems to have run dry of useful ideas.

    Maybe we need the people from forks to help us. I mean they should help the original project. I mean if we go, they go. What is more they are a lot of compettion. Thanks for doing it yourself though.

    The forks/spoons/editions/whatever you want to call them - aren't about competition - we are about picking up the mess that PM left behind and making use of it. I would gladly work on PM itself, but right now I'd be wasting my time. Remember, that's why this thread was started - to find a name for PM's future generation.

    (I currently have several open PRs to PM to fix various nasty bugs.)

    This thread has completely deviated from its intended topic. I'm done wasting my breath here.

    Who said "here" ? I predict that the whole community will migrate to new copy of this one as many of us have already done it, look at spoons.

    The analogy means, we are just stuffed with yet another hope that's gonna be a false hope again. The citizens of Oceania only need to have a Goldstein to hate, then they'll forget to hate Big Brother. This is a means of maintaining social stability.

    Maybe you yourself aren't about competition, but tell me, with your sense of conscience, do you really think the owners/founders/managers and every developer of these forks and spoons and PocketMine's friends don't want or care about competition (unless they are dominating)? I've been in this community (even without creating an account) for years, and I believe in my ability to identify the very basic nature of what different kinds of people are planning about. Only true developers are altruists who don't care about their own reputation and write code without spending a lot of time stealing fame instead. Maybe you're one of these, but I'm sure at the very least the founders aren't. (If they are, there would only br one PocketMine's friend right now).

    Well, I mean there is no decided method of deciding the name.

    Unfortunately, that's very true. You only have to look at our commit history to see the truth of that. Our founder at least - they wanted the contributions, they wanted the credit. Hence the download/upload instead of forking the right way.

    I on the other hand don't care about that. I work on Genisys because I enjoy doing it, and because it's a challenge, and because I feel I'm doing something good.

    In a hypothetical situation, if I was approached to work on PocketMine itself, I'd accept straight away. There's nothing quite like the feeling of knowing you've done something for the community. And I feel that I would owe it to PocketMine, having worked on one of its descendants.

    You may have heard about the recent dispute between CS and Genisys. Over something stupid. Myself and @Tim // robske Büba were instrumental to resolving that. It came to light that the reason for the competition was mainly due to small arguments and hot tempers. Not because fame - because of stupid disagreements that turned into arguments when people on both sides lost tempers. I resolved to change that and try and prevent it from happening again. Tim and I have formed a bridge between CS and Genisys and it's benefiting both sides.

    The other solution is to make peace, and get along instead of scrapping over small things. That is why I act as ambassador to ClearSky, and why I won't tolerate haters at Genisys. If we can achieve some unity, we don't need to fight.

    I completely agree. Well, why else would you be here. But some forks like ImagicalMine, hardly showed any unity at all, apart from their staff members who came back to Pocketmine and I praise them. However, I am still being hippocritical, this is way off topic, but yeah.

    That sounds really small. Like a free trial or demo
