I'd like to see some sort of vetting system put on plugins and plugin developers. I don't mean to belittle or diminish the importance of new plugins and plugin devs contributing to the community but I do see a lot of overlap and an abundance of "This is my first plugin, it basically does the same thing as 500 other plugins". Vetting levels could be like this: Individual Plugin: Vetting levels based on download count, perhaps a rating system, or metrics count (plugins used on hundreds of servers vs. 5 servers vs. no metrics at all) and Developer vetting level. Plugin Developer: Developers could receive vetting based on the same qualities of their plugins. Plugins introduced by vetted devs would in turn have points added toward their vetting level. If a developer like mbaxter introduces a new plugin it should automatically get some bump in vetting because of who made it. I would like to see vetting apply in a couple of ways. Plugin submission and approval. Search and plugin list. (Select "Vetted Only" or highlighted/bold listings) Inclusion in some sort of "Top" list based on category. I'm proposing this not as a developer myself but as a server admin who has simply grown weary of the glut of junk piling up on DBO. I have my core "go-to" plugins for my server but it's also nice to find other interesting plugins.. but it's so hard wading through dozens of really low level, low quality stuff that in many cases maybe should be on an "alpha.bukkit.org" instead of DBO main plugin list. That's all. Flame away at my stupid idea.
