    IJoshuaHD has a "deviated" version of simpleauth he is working on as well. It's pretty hard to beat the system, :p if shogi wants to monopolize with his plugins, there's not much you can do.

    Answer: everyone makes an awesome pull request to PocketMine/SimpleAuth that he has no reason to reject, then the other contributors will contribute more code than him and he can't monopolize :D so evil just joke

    If I went inactive, (Which I'm not.) I wouldn't want people to take my plugins and claim them as their own without asking.

    Edit: Without asking me

    I Think you would only get in trouble if you copy and paste the person code and claim it as yours, if you make your own plugin with same functionality or similar you would be fine.

    If Steve Jobs made the idea of touchscreen monopolized, there'd be no competition today. And then what will become of us?

    when i was at twitch chat in @shoghicp stream and i asked if it is stealing to update (to the new api ) plugins from an inactive developer , and @tnpxxsheepdog said it is staeling and then i asked @shoghicp again and he said someone have already answered you. if you are confused the juice from this is as @tnpxxsheepdog and @shoghicp approved it is stealing to update inactive plugins to the new API

    correct if i am wrong ( correcting me never been a bad thing )

    edit
    corrected to make @PEMapModder a happy man

    Correction: they said stealing not steeling. I think only your neighbors would object your smelting of iron into steel at your home.

    If that is the case then plugin development in this project is stupid.
    1) if someone made it then you cant make a plugin like that as its been done before (first in best dressed)
    2) if remaking something from a old api to a new api before they have done it is stealing then again plugin development is doomed to fail
    3) the above sound really dumb to me.

    hmm what to do, anways there is nothing no one can do really people will do what ever limiting development in any way is dumb.
    I for one if I create anything or recreate it the way I want, then its mine you cant say its not if I put in effort, and if I want to share feel good about that
    sounds a bit elitist / selfish

    I could be wrong but as a new comer who wants to contribute Id like to know exactly what is what.

    As far as it saids in the "Submission Rules" , you're only not allowed to upload a plugin similar to the ones that have the prefix "Official". Someone also uploaded a plugin that does the exact same thing that "K2SignStats" does, but it doesn't really matter, every plugin has an amazing bit that other plugin don't have :)

    Steve Jobs also said:
    but it doesn't work here, a good stole of code is to learn it, know what it do and re-make it from scratch to do more and better things. Topic's code was the same as mine, but the difference is that I started to work on my code some weeks ago (2 to be exact) and it's licenced with GPL v3, so you can't distribute it without my permission.
    As many people already said, if you want me to make/add a different feature or fix it, I will work to do it...

    Finally, in my opinion, people that want to port Bukkit plugins to PocketMine, they should ask the Bukkit developer(s) to get permission to do it, they have all the rights to sue you because the original idea clmes from them and you are only making the same fo other plataform...

    Anyways, if you want to contribute my plugins or @PEMapModder ones, come here: http://github.com/LegendsOfMCPE we're aiming to make the best plugins and ports for PocketMine-MP Servers ;)

    Technically they cant sue you for a idea unless that idea is patent/copyrighted under international law this is PHP not JAVA so really we don't need to ask anything ( but you can always mention the plugin inspired you to port it to PHP ;) )

    I'm building a plugin right now my first one, I hope people like it it. and many bukkit plugins and pocketmine ideas inspired me, I wont directly copy but i will be inspired and act on that.

    Im about to release it spent whole day and half on it self testing with bigbrother plugin (which sucked so bad) but its a epic plugin

    Im calling it essentialsTP+ or essentialsTP for short:
    the features will have just about all tp things I can think of.
    so far ill list them
    home
    sethome
    delhome
    warp
    setwarpp
    delwarp
    tpa
    tpahere
    tpaccept
    tpdecline
    back
    on death teleport to home bed
    spawn(revert to original if custom not set)
    setspawn
    wild(telport some where wild in world)
    I use my PDO class and sqlite so you will need the extensions I posted in another thread
    STILL TO DO
    set config for wild max X / Z
    cause I could not interact with entities properly atm in bigbrother I could not make these features
    drop bed auto set and over-right home bed
    sign warp
    sign spawn
    permissions(so far all commands can be used)

    I will release it under the license of do what you like but give me credit
    as i give credit to all developers on here who share and help the learning curve become easier ;)

    As long as you don't copy their exact code, the plugin isn't copying yours. The only conflict, I think, would be updating inactive plugins.

    I coded it all took some inspiration on how things work but that is it pretty easy to figure out plugins will only get better as I continue making them.

    What is conflict I don't see one plugin that includes all in one nor has features mine has and updating a plugin means i take one and update it what im doing is making a whole new one new name new features better options ;), If I'm shutdown then you just loose a willing developer its that simple(which will be sad) this is more a hobby my main thing i do is my serverkart site in signature.
