    It's been awhile since anything fun brought the whole community together. And last time there was a "contest", it didn't really work out, because of the horrible timing. Should we ask the PocketMine team if we could have another one?

    Maybe just an unofficial one. But be ready to get your prizes ready.

    Not just prizes, but also judges. I think an official would be better, but in case they turn down the idea, an unofficial one is good enough.

    If we had an unofficial one, I would volunteer to be a judge.

    I don't see any plugins labeled as "Contest" right now. If it was unofficial, I think it would be a little weird to have people putting their plugins in a thread. If we had @Humerus, he would have access to the unreleased plugins.

    Yeah, I still want to hear more people's opinions on this. I still want to know who would be willing to help with it or participate in it.

    Those definitely look like "contest" level plugins. :D Anyways, what kind of prizes would be worth it?

    Prizes?
    Bragging rights.

    Why not official?
    Look at the last one. It was almost two years ago and we still don't have the result announced.

    Judges?
    People who are recognized. We all know who can deep inside our mind.
    The only thing is, there cannot be too many, otherwise there will be no participants.

    Types?
    • Best idea
    • Most advanced
    • Most optimized
    • Best code structure (OCD myself)
    • Best API
    • Best minigame (probably nobody can make one with good compatibility)
    • Worst plugin (according to tradition)

    Let's see if we can get some actual prizes, that way developers will want to compete and we will have less judges.

    That sounds pretty good. :D LMAO worst plugin!
    I was thinking a forum trophy or a special tag. But those all sound too... digital. We need some physical prizes.

    Maybe set up some sort of thing to get some money for like a giftcard as a prize or something.

    Probably. But a gift card for what? It could be anything.

    A good prize will also be a fully setup - working hosted Minecraft PE server...

    I'd love to get one by winning something! :p

    Thanks - GmWM

    Why you say that?

    Edit: I mean only for an amount of time...after that you have to pay to renew it.

    I don't know, a working server sounds like too big of a prize.
