Would any moderator perhaps consider acknowledging this plugin has been broken for 1-2 years and like to tell new users that this plugin is broken? Is that a thing here?
It isn't and I think it shouldn't.
Users that created and shared their contributions over time may still be active with developing and improving on it, or they may have some pause on it, or they may have abandoned it completely.
(loss of interest, prison, death, angry wife, etc.)
How would a moderator have better insights in this than any other user such as you or me?
We can all read the thread and draw our own conclusions.
E.g. after a brief search I have found that the developer (zkhcohen) has stated on a couple of occasions that he is very busy in real life.
(so, not dead, no angry wife, which is good)
Also I found that his downloads contains the source code. So anybody is welcome to pick things up.
If that's all unsatisfactory to you, try to contact the developer yourself.
There is no need for some moderator to do that for you.
