The Captain has left the ship..Prologue I'm writing this to address the status of the community. After coming back one day, reading @PEMapModder farewell message and the philosophy tied to it. He highlighted several issues in the community, to which I'm going to give my opinions on. Beginnings I joined the minecraft PE community around early 2013/2012/2011 [I can't remember at this point] after being shown a video by a friend of a early attempt by Shoghicp to get his serverside software working [Mainly just a connection proof video]. The magic in my eyes was the good old client certificate that everyone had to install at one point. It allowed a centerlized server listing to be useful to players. This was around the time Mojang was trying to capitalise on hosting servers for people, too which previous code was already in place for Shoghicp to take advantage of. At the start of this whole era, only a handful of servers ever existed for the potentially hundreds, or thousands of players that would discover Pocketmine each day. Along with my friend, we were fortunate enough to be able to put some money together to buy a VPS, [a modest one at that] and host one of the very few servers at that time. Infinity Server Network [If you remember that name, you can call yourself a veteran at this point]. We discovered a cute little way to promote our server on the early listings by investigating why there was servers always at the top of the list. We found that if you have a server reporting back with 0/0 players, it would always be at the top xD. Shoghicp found out and banned the servers we made at the time. Fun times that was. ISN died following the huge influx of servers onto the Pocketmine, and partially to blame by switching to windows. Which kinda screwed with my head having been with linux for the months ISN was up. After we died, The pocketmine forums was initially setup, and I alongside Eggster was assigned global moderator. The forum was at its strongest, having great input from the pocketmine team, and the community who wished to help each other with their own goals. Exodus Things become a little shaky after this point. Minecraft was just bought out by Microsoft [They were and still are a company who was always behind the trend of the market they so desperately wanted to pursue. Circa Skype, Linkedin, Zune]. And Shoghicp was hired by Mojang as a full time minecraft PE developer. The community was still strong at this point, but a problem was soon about to eclipse. The rate at which new members joined, and the rate the asked questions overtook the capacity for genuine and skilled members of the community could deal with them. This resulted in a deficit of community members with able skills to answer. Where the blue line represented skilled community members, and the red line(s) represented new members with huge amounts of questions. If the red line shifts up, that means community members with skills were leaving [and they did due to the huge sprawling community we had] and so less questions were being answered. Supply > Demand TL; DR Skilled members left, questions pilled up, no one answered. Community became a "taking" community rather than a "giving community. Only focusing on their own issues and projects. No synergy exists. People realised this, and decided to go and create their own communities and projects to which they could provide better support and hence have more users using their offspring of the pocketmine code. Which led to a community schism. What Now? Based on the amount of money pocketmine gets in donations, and the existing staff. I estimate the community to survive for about another 1-2 years to the delight of some people. However, you cannot ignore we are dying, and will continue to unless this trend stops. What can we do? I encourage those who have forked the pocketmine project, to look inwards and help revive the project again. You may want to have your own control over a project [But lets be honest, you arn't even giving pocketmine credit anyone even though you are using it's code], but if you want your project to ever live past a year of use. You need to contribute to your foundations, IE Pocketmine. I don't know much about who has access to the Pocketmine Main branch, or even who is even working on it. But it's being really clear that one update might permanently break the software as no one would be updating it. Intyre can't update it forever and may very well stop at a future date, and with no one to watch out for it. It'll die forever. So please, if you are actually competent and not a server host who feels they are up to it "Just because", give Intyre a shout to help him out. The Future Currently we are in the works of hiring a new development team to take on the project alongside the original pocketmine-mp team from the past. We are currently working on recruiting new staff and plugin reviewers. Happy coup d'etat. STAY TUNED. ... but his mates shouldn't follow someone off a cliff.
