    This is an April Fools joke! https://forums.skunity.com/threads/new-rule-no-use-of-sk-skript-in-addon-names.2883/#post-7408

    Hi everyone,

    I unfortunately have to announce this new rule which takes immediate effect. Please read on for what is happening:

    I was recently contacted by Njol via email and we discussed how skUnity Forums had at first replaced the DBO forums and have now become the only Skript forums due to DBO not having the forums section anymore. For skUnity Forums to become the official forums, Njol has asked for some input into how the forums operate. I have agreed to this with him, so long as skUnity Forums are branded as official and he has some activity on them.

    However, during this conversation with Njol, he brought up an issue. He is contacted multiple times a day with people reporting bugs for addons. He believes the general confusion lies with the fact that addons use the wording "sk" or "Skript", either at the start or end of their name and people then believe they're either official addons of Skript or they are Skript.

    This rule is that addon developers can no longer brand their addons with "sk" or "Skript" if they're posting them on skUnity. Addons currently posted will be changed over the coming days. I know this rule probably doesn't help out the community, but it's something Njol has asked for.

    Name changes:
    OpenAudoMcSkript => OpenAudoMc
    skript-json => json
    MythicMobs Skript Addon => MythicMobs Addon (direct references to Skript also not allowed)
    SkellettProxy = ellettProxy
    Skellett => ellet
    skQuery (inc. forks) => Query
    SharpSk => Sharp
    TwitterSk => Twitter
    Vixio, this addon already complies with the new rule
    WolvSk => Wolv
    Reqn, this addon already complies with the new rule
    TuSKe, this addon already complies with the new rule
    QuarSk => Quar
    BentenCore, this addon already complies with the new rule
    SkStuff => Stuff
    Umbaska, this addon already complies with the new rule
    skUtilities => Utilities
    WildSkript => Wild
    OaSkriptEvents => OaEvents
    RediSK => Redi
    TeamSkript => Team
    Facsk => Fac
    PurpleSk => Purple
    MundoSK = Mundo
    skWhitelist => Whitelist
    skProfession => Profession
    skGlide => Glide
    skDragon => Dragon

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

    Thanks,
    BaeFell

    Njol created Skript and abandoned it. He shouldn't be in power anymore.

    There goes a bunch of resource activity, naming things "Glide, Dragon, Fac, ellet"
    Yeah, really going to be searched actively in Google and new users will be so sure on knowing what they are downloading and will now know exactly what to search!

    Could not agree more, does he really have the power to brand things official, considering most people use a version he didn't even make, due to him abandoning it so early.

    We need a way to easily identify them as add-on for skript though, maybe come up with a special tag for all the add-on would be a good idea.

    Those are not at the start or end, thus are allowed

    It's a direct reference to Skript.

    OaSkriptEvents isn't really needed... ask Matt if he wants to delete it? :emoji_stuck_out_tongue: (got merged into OpenAudioMC itself)

    Ok, this is just dumb it makes no sense. I don’t even see how this could be a rule the names are meant for it to stick with the plugin and look good with it. This is just going to make everyone change the name the custom made images and everything it makes no sense and I don’t see why you are following his lead as he abandoned skript…

    Would it not be easy to have some sort of code added to show it's still bound to Skript? (Code as in something on the end of the name, not programming-wise)

    E.g

    skript-json --> jsonSA as SA stands for Skript Addon

    This is just so that other mainstream plugins aren't accidentally downloaded instead of skript addons as it causes way more problems.

    What a shame, honestly Skunity seems fine without "Njol's official branding" the addon devs and bensku are keeping skript alive so it seems a bit unfair to come in and make them change their addon names, anyone who can't differentiate from the fact that they are installing a skript addon probably shouldn't be using skript

    I was under the impression that these were official addons of skript, how is changing the name going to help when every single time a null it found during skript load it will shoot a message from skript containing the stack trace etc,, this alone would make foolish n00b users go to njol and bug him,,

    this will solve nothing

    In that case, I propose a compromise that should make everyone happy:
    OpenAudoMcSkript => OpenAudoMcSkAwesome
    skript-json => awesome-sk-json
    MythicMobs Skript Addon => MythicMobs Sk Addon
    SkellettProxy = AwesomeSkellettProxy
    Skellett => AwesomeSkellet
    skQuery (inc. forks) => AwesomeSkQuery
    SharpSk => SharpSkAwesome
    TwitterSk => TwitterSkAwesome
    WolvSk => WolvSkAwesome
    QuarSk => QuarSkAwesome
    SkStuff => AwesomeSkStuff
    skUtilities => AwesomeSkUtilities
    WildSkript => WildSkAwesome
    OaSkriptEvents => OaSkEvents
    RediSK => RediSkAwesome
    TeamSkript => TeamSkAwesome
    Facsk => FacSkAwesome
    PurpleSk => PurpleSkAwesome
    MundoSK = MundoSkAwesome
    skWhitelist => AwesomeSkWhitelist
    skProfession => AwesomeSkProfession
    skGlide => AwesomeSkGlide
    skDragon => AwesomeSkDragon

    Good morning and a happy April Fools to you all! While I am early in other timezones,I posted this at around half past Midnight and I just couldn't wait a second longer. I've been planning this for a while :emoji_wink:

    PS: if you hadn't guessed, this is a joke and not an actual rule. We're not becoming the official Skript forums but this rule doesn't exist lol
