    Request plugins here.

    Request plugins that do not exist here.

    Requests here may be migrated to Poggit in the future for more systematic requesting, claiming and filling.

    Do's
    • search if the plugin is already present in the old official PocketMine plugins repository.
    • make descriptive titles
    • provide as much info as you can. Don't just list out what commands there should be.
    • think about whether it is possible to make such a plugin, whether client mods are needed
    • It is OK to use this subforum to consult opinions about features or even look for collaborators for a public plugin that you are going to work on.
    • If you are requesting a plugin that "ports" a plugin from another incompatible server software (e.g. Spigot), please explain what the plugin does, and preferrably link to a descriptive introduction of the plugin. Do not assume everybody has heard of that plugin.
    • Have a look at the first part of this thread on how to write a good plugin request. Additionally,
      • Don't say "can someone make a plugin that..." as the beginning of your post. The sentence structure becomes complicated and less readable.
      • Instead, in the first sentence, write what you want to do with the plugin, not what you think the developer should write in code (e.g. what commands); this can be discussed later in the thread, but not the first sentence.
      • You may even not need to write down the commands/buttons you want. The developer knows better how the commands should look like. Your intention is the most important thing.

    Don'ts
    • offer incentives such as payment, ranks on servers, etc. It is of course OK if you want to credit the developer on your server, but do not offer ops, admins, etc. in Plugin Request threads.
    • request for a private plugin. Requesting private plugins should be done in private, because posting a thread for private business is totally nuisance to other users.
    • request multiple plugins in the same thread. Each plugin request thread should only request for one plugin, and the content should more or less be interrelevant that it is suitable to put them all in one plugin.
    • ask "how do I use this plugin from GitHub". Contact the developer directly, or maybe that plugin doesn't work yet.
    • ask for plugin updates. Contact the developer directly.
    • ask about how to use a plugin. Use the Plugins -> Help forum for it.
    • abuse tags
    • abuse colors
    • Tell other people to edit a downloaded plugin by bumping its API version, without detailed explanation of its side effects to ensure informed decisions, and clarification that this suggestion only applies for a small range of plugins.
