Why did canary mod never become as popular as bukkit?

Postby goku » Tue Sep 01, 2015 10:22 pm

I mean for one thing canary mod already had a built in permissions system and was superior to bukkit. Perhaps if canary mod became as popular as bukkit then canary mod would have had enough staff and devs to continue development. What are peoples thoughts on this?

In my opinion, right from the projects start (way back when it was a continuation of the abandoned hMod) Canary was never intended to be a replacement or competitor to Bukkit. The Canary community has always been a small, relatively friendly bunch of people and I don't think this idea fits with a large group of staff / developers (and the large community that comes along with it). Throughout my time with Canary I have always felt like I knew most of the regulars on the forum on some level, you just don't get that in larger communities. While it is sad to see it end I think I would prefer it this way than as some large community like Bukkit.

So as an answer to the question, I don't think Canary was intended to be like Bukkit. It is because of this that it never became as popular as Bukkit. It wasn't really about which one was better. I realise this is not really answering the question (who can answer that?) but this is just my perspective on the project.

Welcome back WWOL.

Also I think that most people didn't even know Canary existed.

Thanks, good being able to talk to everyone again (although I really need to remember to use IRC).
Your right saying that most people didn't know about Canary, although I think that was slowly changing.

Eh no, people just associated Canary with hmod, and often still do :P

Well of course those people would know about CanaryMod but people who went to bukkit first with is a majority of the player base doesn't really know Canary exists.
