The Bukkit Docs Initiative

With the announcement of the new Bukkit Docs project, I am happy to announce that we are looking for members who are active in the Wiki and knowledgable in areas like Minecraft Server Administration, Programming with Java & Bukkit API, and many other topics to become a part of the BukkitWiki Developers Team! By becoming a part of this team, you will be directly responsible for creating and maintaining a new set of tutorials and instructions that will be editable only by the developers group and the administration of the wiki.

You should also be familiar with MediaWiki, IRC, and Google Docs as those are our main lines of communication.

When submitting an application please title it "BukkitDocs Application: (Your Wiki Username)" and please include: Your Wiki Username, your Forums Username, Age, How Long you've been active in the community, Why you would be a good addition to the team, and a return e-mail address.

Forums Downtime 12/07/11 (Update: COMPLETED)

I'd like to alert you to the fact that the Bukkit Forums (including bukkit.org) will be temporarily unavailable for a period of approximately one hour whilst vital networking equipment between our web server and database server is replaced and/or repaired by our hosting provider, Multiplay. I cannot at this time give you an estimate of when the work will start, but it should begin some time tonight (GMT).

This replacement should resolve the issues that many of you have been experiencing with the forums as of late.

In summary, the following services will be unavailable:

  • forums.bukkit.org
  • bukkit.org
  • wiki.bukkit.org (Tentatively)

The following serviecs may also be affected:

  • ci.bukkit.org
  • plugins.bukkit.org

The following services will not be affected:

  • leaky.bukkit.org (bukkit.atlassian.net)
  • dev.bukkit.org

I thank you on behalf of the Bukkit team for your patience whilst these important repairs are underway.

Bukkit's New Issue Tracker!

Because of the new JIRA-powered Issue Tracker that Bukkit has adopted, BukkitWiki has a module inside the issue tracker. This new system is going to be adopted in-place of the out-of-date todo page. Thanks to this new system we are also going to be allowing users to take tickets from the Issue Tracker and fix them directly by introducing Wiki Developers. Wiki Developers will have direct access to tickets on the Issue Tracker and will be allowed to take on those tickets to resolve issues.

Submitting Issues is relatively straightfoward. You have Four Categories: Bug, Improvement, New Feature, and Task. Bug Issues would be for site failures and overall crashes with the website. Improvement Issues is the most common ticket type and consists of anything from Content suggestions to fixes in the wiki structure. New Feature Issues would be used to request new features on the wiki. Finally, Task Issues would be topics directed toward the Wiki Staff regarding anything from wiki setup to a intolerable user.

We're really excited to implement this new feature, and if you'd like to get a head-start you can head on over to the Wiki JIRA Project to get started and join us on IRC at #bukkitwiki!
