    I don't think PocketMine should change its name. The reason being, No one would then know the originality of MCPE Servers, and the original MCPE server software. They may think one of the forks is original.

    If you were to rename it, it's got to still keep PocketMine as its main name. Give it a Nickname, or alias.

    PocketMine has grown too big and too well known to simply change its name. A company as big as PocketMine (that I knew) had to pay a load of money just to let people know of the change of name. It is no easy process.

    PocketMine-MP no one quite knows what the MP stands for. In fact I don't. (I'll research it myself) For all i know at this moment, MP could mean Members of Parliament.
    If you were to replace the MP, it should be PocketMine-ServerSoftware (or turn it around, "S.S. PocketMine", like a ship name) or PocketMine-MiningSoft(ware)

    To change the name, is to hide the identity. Why hide such a identity that has done so much to the community!?!?
    Why hide the face of the thing that's helped so much?!?!
    Why hide the original MCPE Server Software?
    Why hide a wonderful piece of art such as PocketMine!
    This project has done so well, and to see it with a new identity, will be eventually watching it crumble and eventually come to an end. As its original name, it stands a chance of surviving.

    I do not support the fact that the name will change, but I will support PocketMine (and its new name) till the end.

    This message was just a message from the heart, and no insults or negativity towards PocketMine was intended.

    Because they are MCWin10 servers now, not MCPE servers.

    I'm unsure if you missed the memo, but mcwin10 clients can join MCPE servers.

    So, that argument is invalid :)

    Lies. All lies :3

    Any mcwin10 client can play on any latest update of PocketMine (depending on the version) all mcwin10 is, is a Windows version of mcpe. It's got the same code, the same options, same blocks, same everything (apart from UI, and a few protocols)

    I can play with my mcwin10 on my PocketMine server (phar from bintray)


    Use better word than lies xD

    @TheDeibo and are you able to craft? Drop items one at a time by pressing Q? Use your hotbar correctly (which, in Win10, always must link to the first 9 inventory slots, and not to empty space)? Scroll through the hotbar without it spazzing and selecting different slots all by itself very rapidly?

    You're perfectly right - they are the same game. But it's certain low-level differences that cause problems, low-level differences that aren't currently catered for. I did say not fully supported, for the reasons above and various other issues - not that it wasn't supported at all.

    Yes, and everyone joins with Win10 to get advantages over MCPE players, that's why I said they are mcwin10 servers not mcpe servers now.

    Ahh I see you are using that handy Edit button. Wise choice. I can't argue much now. :)

    With the crafting issue, I saw that fixed on some unnamed forks. I am not gonna tell ya. :), go hunt for the fork yourself.

    @TheDeibo I don't need to hunt for it. With some help from the P.O.C. patches by @Extreme_Heat and a considerable amount of time and effort (more than a month of development) on my part, I fixed pretty much every bug with Win10 there is. (All the fixable ones, anyway.) I can't tell you where the fixes are, go hunt for the fork yourself. :p

    P.S. Yeah, that Edit button frequently comes in useful :D

    P.P.S. I'd better edit my signature

    This debate is trivial to the actual development and the summer is beginning to dwindle.

    The simplest difference that caused the most serious problem: Are you able to attack while rotating?
    Tell me this isn't based on Genisys' names.
    That inspires me to start looking for names from https://github.com/new instead (the one I get this time: silver-spoon).

    Maybe PocketMine-MH370 might be an appropriate name. PocketMine has crashed, pieces of it everywhere, and so far there is still no confirmed reason why that happened.

    @SOFe I was thinking more along the lines of technical issues, but you make a good point
