    Worst plugin ever: onLoad()
    PHP:
    $a 2; while(true) { $a += $a; } // Will run until PHP_MAX_INT is reached.

    No. I believe this is.
    PHP:
    public function onEnable(){
        echo 
    str_repeat("TROLOLOL"PHP_INT_MAX);
        
    $this->getPluginLoader()->disablePlugin($this);
    }
    LDX and Taha_The_Hacker like this.

    I say we should definitely see if we can get an official one started again. If that doesn't work out, then we can create our own unofficial one!

    And now here are my thoughts on prizes:
    Even if there was an official one, shoghicp won't be able to get free stuff from Mojang. Maybe if he was lucky back in the day, but now that they're owned by Microsoft, that's pretty much an impossibility. So here are my ideas on prizes (not a in any order or in relation to any specific category):
    • Maybe a month or two months free for a PocketMine server from X host.
    • A t-shirt. Maybe we could get some of those PocketMine t-shirts made like the last contest promised.
    • Some type of other cool physical item shipped to you, most likely something Minecraft-related.
    • (This one is just me being super hopeful, but...) Something with peoples' signatures on them (If Shoghi agreed, I think most people would love to have a Shoghi autograph. If not Shoghi, then I'm sure people would want my autograph, right people?).
    • Badge or trophy on the forums (if we can make it official).
    • The plugin can be featured (if it's official).
    Wow it's really hard to come up with any prizes that are good, aren't super expensive, and still related to what the contest is about without having PocketMine or Shoghi's support XD Anyone else have any ideas?

    30 days MineCraft Realms card or maybe some other stuff got from MineCon. ;)
    YES! I want your autograph!
    Code:
    // Please sign here
    Shogi touched that MineCraft Realms card. It's not a signature, but HE TOUCHED IT!
    We can make that work.

    Sounds good! But now we need a plan!

    :O that'd all be awesome! I'd love to help contribute to this in some way, but I'm pretty busy with school this week until Friday afternoon EST. I could definitely help plan something this weekend. Realms card could be cool (I forgot those existed), and having a signature doesn't matter to me. I just need to know that @shoghicp touched the Realms card!

    P.S. check in the quote for a special signature ;)

    All the prizes sound very good! Can either one of you help ask @shoghicp if we could have an official one? An official one would attract more people, because of the simple fact that it is "official".

    It will have a memory failure when running the str_repeat function.
    It won't crash. It will just change into float. BTW, you could just have done $a *= 3;.

    Worst plugin code ever:
    Undefined variables
    Re-Declare one class 15 times
    No pluginbase
    No plugin.yml
    Anyway.. I think (seriously) rather than worst plugin ever it should be something like best effort put into it as a new coder.

    This is something that needs to be addressed as well. It's not a big deal to me because I didn't enter, but I still feel that they should address the last contest before another one begins.

    If the first one gets no proper results, then that means the second one won't get any either.
