Bukkit Team Member, Male
I feel your pain: Working countless hours on a project just to be taken by a huge company.
So is there anything the community could do that would make you release the code? What would be your price for buying the rights?
He doesn't have a price. He's a greedy pig.
Even though many of the fellow community are mad at you for DMCA-ing Bukkit. I truly believe what you did was respectable. It is amusing to find people praising MD5, just as how they praised you once when you first released Bukkit. If MD5 were to take down his patches, it would be entertaining to see how quickly these people would turn on him just as they did to you. What you written is rightfully yours +1 Supporter!
We turned on him because he stabbed his team in the back. And then has the fucking balls to keep the "Bukkit Team Member" in his profile.
Fuck you Wesley.
Now only if Microsoft would come around and offer to buy your codes. Wait, better if they just open sourced the Minecraft server engine and we don't have this dmca issue. ;D
I'm curious about something: Why is it that three of four of your plugins no longer exist, and the fourth one is now owned by someone else?
>guy dmcas bukkit project
>still bukkit team member
I was angry at you, I have to be honest. Then people like Skionz and Acharige made me realize how much work you actually put into this and the real reason why you did what you did. I'm sorry for saying that about you and thank you for all your contributions to the Bukkit project.
You made the right choice. Thank you for sticking up for the community, and thank you for the countless contributions to the project!
I would like to sincerely thank you for everything you have done. I've been around for ages and can remember when you started contributing to the project. It was a great ride.
Don't be an asshole. He spent ages contributing to the bukkit project only to find out he was writing code for mojang.
@SirFaizdat, if you were volunteering for a community in which you assume is independent, and spent countless nights, and hours over it and find out that the community you are working for is actually not independently ran, and is run by a multi million dollar company, wouldn't you feel the anger and disbelief that Wolverness had? Common sense isn't so common now is it?
I'm confused about everything. Could someone explain things?
I agree with everything you have done. Thank you.
He's happy to getting down a community... But he's only a bukkit team member, not a bukkit owner/administrator ._.
And his profile isn't getting banned ._.
And... he don't be fired from Bukkit Staff O_o
The egoistic part of me screams at you in anguish...
The rest totally understand and support you. :)
You did the right thing bro, long life to bukkit and good luck with everything.
WHY did you shut down bukkit? Just one word, WHY?
Why did you do it?
What was you're goal with the DMCA? Do you want Mojang to open source their portion of the code? Do you want to shut down bukkit? Do you want Mojang to give Bukkit back the the community (which I think they are already trying to do, they just legally own it so they can stop things like what EvilSeph did)? I am not complaining, just trying to understand how you want this whole situation to resolve.
What happened to EvilSeph ?????
winter4w he left the Bukkit project.
O lol I knew that I thought something else happened :P
I agree with what he did I don't see anything wrong with it. It was his API, his doing, and someone was bound to make mass amounts of money off of his work, so if Bukkit was going, he can take his code with him, it's a lot of work. I give you full respect Wolvereness. Took guts to get DMCA to shut down something so massive.
Now I know why. You did the right thing. Thank you.
<3 Sad to hear. Full respect
omfg can we close this wall? It's quite clear that some people dislike what he did and some people agree with him. To both sides, WE GET IT, writing on his wall saying shit doesn't make you any better of a person. Also, I fully agree with what he did, and you all can live even if bukkit shuts down.
You did the right thing.
@ all the haters out there:
Please be so kind and read at least the "good bye statements" of the bukkit staff:
And ask yourself after reading those posts the question WHO is now acting as a little kid??!
Thank you for all of your hard work you have done in your sparetime for FREE!
Without having been paid by money or even a "thank you" from ANYONE in this community.
All those folks who are shouting at you because of your decision DO NOT know why you did this.
If only the knew that without your work bukkit would be without modding API..
You need to get over the fact that work you volunteered is being given to another company. Get a real job programming for a real company and leave all this behind you. You have caused countless people anger and stress for no reason. You are punishing the wrong people.
so have you!
Niall, please stop making yourself look stupid and don't post again in my online presence.
@Jade can you exlpain it to him once more? He seems to not understand it...
@ Wolvereness : You did the right thing!
Don't listen to those folks down here. They're just mad because they can't download and play. *Kids* don't see and understand the reasons.
Don't type stupid b.s. when you have no idea what it is you're discussing.
You are just mad... have you read and understand the link I posted to you? "... Bukkit contains contributions from third parties that were licensed under GPL or LGPL, but the copyright ownership of these contributions were never transferred over to the Bukkit project, so Mojang was only able to acquire copyright ownership of code written by the four core Bukkit members."
Did you not read what I wrote you or are you purposefully ignoring what I've written? The GPL or LGPL are both invalid you imbecile.
I'm personally on your side, you coded a good quarter of craftbukkit and now it's being handed over to Mojang, I think you did the right thing.
I am sorry, my english is not da best, but you know what I mean... Fingers and .... toes.
(Not trying to bump this)
@Arch-Theologist, you claim to be a college graduate, yet apparently your only 19. Unless your highly intellegent, it's nearly impossible to complete college in 1 year or less.
I have enough evidence already to conclude that you're just some 12 year old typing in big words, thinking you're right.
Who's Moaning Now!
Craftbukkit is currently prohibited by law : Disclaimer
This is preposterous. Why is distribution a major rule if the only way you can play the game is by registering an account. If Mojang is worried about distribution, then I would consider minecraft to disable the online mode boolean in server properties files. This feature is the only way players can play this game for free.
