Why you can't believe Kangarko

On the 20th of december 2020 (Almost a year ago as of now) was the former Spigot member Kangarko removed from the SpigotMC Forums. The reasons were not publicly stated at first, but after he tried to blame SpigotMC on being at fault here did MD_5 make an announcement, clarifying the actual reasons and the current situation. The reason he stated in that post was repeated violations of the forum rules, primarely abuse of the resource's update feature for promotional actions (i.e. advertisements).

Why you shouldn't give bots Administrator

Bots are a wonderful thing on Discord. They can enhance and improve your Discord server and also protect it from harm. However, a bot isn't unfailable and security is only as save as the person managing it. Because of that is giving the `Administrator` permission to a bot one of if not even the most dangerous thing you can do. The same goes for asking for this permission in the OAuth2 invite or even relying on it to function.

Alternatives for JDA-Utilities

JDA-Utilities1 is a library made for JDA2.
Unfortunately has the library entered a state of not being updated nor maintained anymore. While core-parts still function fine is the library lacking a lot of features that would make it better in the long run.

This page attempts to list all known alternatives for (parts of) JDA-Utilities.
If you know an alternative that isn't listed here, let me know in the JDA-Discord3, so that I can update this page.

The Pros and Cons of SpigotMC

SpigotMC1 is a well-known site and software in the Minecraft-Community. Almost 200,000 servers are modded Minecraft Servers from which almost 46% are Spigot (~70,000 server)2.

With that said do the Forum and Software have a lot of negative things, that annoys developers, server owners and forum users alike for quite some time now.
To bring some light to this do I now list both positive and negative things about SpigotMC.

Truth & Lies

There have been several posts and claims regarding PayPal where they are "banning the selling of products related to Minecraft" or about SpigotMC making unjustified bans of Developers which isn't true at all, but I'll talk about why in a bit.

In Defense of SpigotMC

Yesterday (20th December 2020) was something happening. The former Spigot Member Kangarko has been banned for the continued breaking of the forum rules, most noticably advertising in places like plugin updates.
