The narrative of MSM

MSM Zombie

MSM is no longer dead! But hang on, it may not be alive yet. In @zachlatta’s words:

“We’re now instituting an open commit bit with MSM. If you submit a pull request and it’s merged, you’ll get the commit bit on the repo”

It’s my hope that MSM can now better match the community’s needs as they exceed my own.

To support this community approach MSM now lives under it’s own organisation at

Good news! Merging of pull requests and dealing with issues is now being helped along by zachlatta who’s now a collaborator with the GitHub repository.

So be on the look out for new releases of MSM!


100 Stargazers!

05 November 2012

Back in August (2 months ago), I was excited to say that MSM had 50–what were at that time–watchers. Now it’s up to 100 stargazers which, to me, feels quite special.

I simply wanted to mark this occation with a post. That is all.

I have had, since starting MSM, two or three people enquire about donations. It’s a fantastic feeling; that someone without prompting would, of their own free accord, wish to encourage the project by donating money.

If you’re wishing to donate–and I by no means want to encourage you to do so (staring the project on GitHub is all the reward I need)–then now you can with the new PayPal donation page.

A link to this page can also be found at and, as a “Donate” button at the top of the GitHub project readme page.

I’m not sure if it’s possible to discern this information, but if donators would agree, I will have a page immortalising those kind few who did give so graciously to MSM, by listing their names.

I’m so pleased that MSM has got to the stage where people think it’s worth supporting!


Is it worth creating a blog, I wondered, for MSM. Well, the project has reached 50 watchers, now stars, on github, and I felt like celebrating that fact in some way.

After starting the project a few months ago I have nailed down a lot of the functionality I needed on my own servers. The input and testing contributed by others has acted as a fantasic motivator for the project.

Maybe check out the list of stargazers for MSM, and give it a star yourself if you would recommend it to others.

The release of Minecraft 1.3.1 has MSM needing a minor version update to accomodate all those changes. I (Marcus Whybrow) have recently begun a new Job, so I hope everyone will forgive me whilst I learn to ballance my responsibility to MSM with my hungar for money!
