Just a question to see if we should keep Mineshafter running.

As a sysadmin, it adds an extra dependency that I cannot control,
and while Mineshafter hasn't really caused problems, I would rather have less than more.

As a Minelord member with a focus on everything Wolfire Games,
I have never been comfortable with supporting Mineshafter,
and it also seems like no one who uses Mineshafter is
using the server nowadays.

If you disagree (ie. you're using Mineshafter), please reply.
If there aren't enough replies, I think it might be safe to assume
that Mineshafter isn't in demand.

Thanks!

    I never approved of mineshafter, though I do find it pretty noble of you to have kept it running even so far, so as not to block out even the most abominable, indie-targeting pirates. Yeesh.
    Consider my own vote a neutral, as, indeed, it wholly depends on how many Mineshafting members we have.

    I have never been an advocate of piracy. If people put forth the time and the work to create something amazing, they deserve to get paid for it.

    Enforcing this viewpoint is an ethical decision, in my opinion- and I am against mineshafter. If we happen to have a staffer that needs a legitimate copy, let's raise the money and get them one, rather than support a tool that encourages the trolls of this game by having no commitment required, no accountability to trace them back to, and therefore, no punishment to be enacted for the trolliest behaviors they can level against us.

    I actually do agree with removing Mineshafter. Although people like maffy wouldn't be able to play anymore!

    Exactly. Can someone make an official post about it?

    Let's give some time for those with Mineshafter to respond.
    The problem is that none of them check the forum regularly.

    Well, i play Minelord with Mineshafter, but not everyday maybe 1 time in the week, which means i don't play so much, it's your call to remove Mineshafter, it's just maffy who's caring to play Minecraft, that doesn't mean that i don't care to play Minecraft too. :p

    Anyways it's your call and i hope that the server will last for a long time. :)

    No, actually it's not my call or anything.
    I think if we have some people needing Mineshafter, there is need to keep it running for a while longer.

    The question is, whether you like Minecraft enough to consider buying a copy, and if you aren't able to, whether it would be a big deal for us to raise money to get you guys copies.

    This isn't a "go away" post at all! It's always good to have friends around.

    Minecraft is £17.95 at the moment!
    We could look into having a fundraiser if people actually would like to have Minecraft bought for them.

    My thought though is that there shouldn't be many who cannot buy Minecraft at all... but rather haven't bothered to purchase a copy.

    @maffY, are you reading this post?

    Yes, I am.
    I think I can buy minecraft by myself, but It might take some time.

    All I can say is just go for it.

    Well @maffY, there is no rush so we can wait while you try to sort it out.
    If you find it too difficult to sort out though, we're here for you!

    This post has been here long enough, and there doesn't seem to be any demand for continued discussions.

    If any Mineshafter user hasn't sorted their situation out, it's clearly lack of interest in continuing to play.

    I will disable Mineshafter once this post exceeds 8 votes, unless points are made against the disabling.

    Maffy has been active recently. We should assist him if we can.

    ... and so has inferno. I can donate $20- Maffy has already said that he can afford to donate 10. We need 54, so we're more than halfway there. (calculating off of the price of 27-ish USD per game)

    Let's see what @maffY and Inferno can sort out first.
    Would 2 weeks be enough time for you guys?

    Also, someone please ask Inferno to get on the forums!

    Soo.. Looks like mineshafter has been discontinued. :x
    I guess we should see what Maffy and Inferno do and help them if we need to.

    Mineshafter isn't being developed anymore.

    There's nothing we can do about it unfortunately.
