    So is this is the end of PocketMine-MP?

    I have to admit I myself has not been very active in the community as of late. So last week I figure I better update my plugins, so I was surprised to find out how things have changed.

    So pretty much all major contributors to PocketMine-MP are inactive. The Plugin directory is silent. We have at least three, third party forks competing with each other without any one being able to claim the mantle of PocketMine-MP successor?

    And now that Mojang is coming out with 0.15 with Realms, will this really spell the end of it all?

    Looking at the commit history in GitHub, @PEMapModder tried to keep things alive for 3 months (Feb to April) but has since fallen silent. So it looks everything is up to @Intyre now.

    So what are your toughs/opinions on what is next for the community?

    Myself, I am waiting for 0.15 and what will happen with that release. Since that release will add encryption to the network protocol, I am wondering if PocketMine-MP will be able to keep compatibility then.

    Also 0.12.x should be "The end of PocketMine-MP".

    I don't believe that this will be the end.

    Mojang Realms were created to play and stay together with friends, family or school. But they weren't made for public servers. Also, the Realms aren't going to be free. They'll cost money.

    But who knows? Shoghi knows :p

    Well, as far as I know, Realms likely won't kill PocketMine. Just like Realms didn't kill Bukkit.

    Don't worry about PocketMine-MP. It will support 0.15.x.x I've got 3 of 5 parts done.

    The question is: will those clones survive? (without copying my code :p)

    @Intyre would Intyrely keep PocketMine-MP Alive, as-well with the contributors.

    Those clones have some really decent coding in them. You must check it out yourself. :/
    The clones are far ahead of the original repo, the original repo should have been a competitor to the clones.

    This is my personal opinion. It may contain some statements that are not true.

    About the plugin repository; It is very inactive. Sometimes updated, but not much as before. I don't understand why we don't have more plugin reviewers. For example, IM has few more staffs, but they have chosen the most active one. Yes, they may be not as good as PM plugin reviewers, but the community is there for it. They can give feedbacks, tell them that it is against the guideline.

    Great, you made my day :). Anyway is there any license that doesn't allows them to copy code from other repos?

    Guys, ill also point out that @shoghicp is still a part of PocketMine-MP, even though he is inactive. Even if he is inactive on the forum, doesnt mean that he does some code OUTSIDE of the forum. For example, he could be active on the IRC, without anyone knowing. He could also be right now on this forum, as a Guest.

    He COULD be discussing a few code, or ideas with other PocketMine Staff members right now.

    Im not saying he is, but just keep that in mind. Also, keep in mind that Shoghi is working on Minecraft at Mojang, so he would naturally be busy with that.

    Staff have lives too. It just simply takes a brain to realise it.

    When god gave us a brains he didn't gave us a manually for it, so it takes some time to turn them on. You can actually see it by looking at "Plugin Development" section

    It would be nice if this place got new staff. They haven't recruited any new staff members yet. Most of the ones we have now are inactive.

    i think that section of the brain doesnt exsist unless they take the omega 3 tablet called "php.net" or also called "common sence"

    Well, isn't the answer obvious... Look at their commits. You will come to the conclusion is that without the PM, they will fall apart.

    We shouldn't go around just criticizing each other about simple spelling mistakes. We are not machines, we do have common sense, we can read what a word should be rather than giving fatal error about unknown vocabulary, we can make mistakes. This is about PM, not spelling.
