I don't want you to stop updating your site, I am only spreading awareness. I used to compile through some freakz.ro web compiler or something. I don't support web compilers because they are pointless to me, but since you already read my only downside through my experience with them, you can add an upload option for include files that get removed after like 15 minutes or so for people with their own include files.

All of this political bollocks could've been reduced to a simple thought.

Online compilers are the exact same thing as an offline compiler, except that they offer only one and only thing:
  • You are uploading your source file to a server which can, without your knowledge, get saved and stolen by the server's host.

I've been using online compilers for a longer time before when I wasn't thinking this way at all. I was even too lazy to figure out or just read online for a simple hint or tutorial on how to use the local compiler. It's better because of many reasons:
  • It does not matter what version you should use. Anything you can download from AMX Mod X's official website can be of use on your own computer, however you intend it to be used.
  • INC Libraries (Include files). Many web compilers lack an option to upload your own .inc file, which is needed for your plugins to compile. Again, everything can be done locally without much effort.
  • Many IDEs can be set up to use your local compiler and compile your plugin right away as you're writing it by just clicking the universal "Run" button. You can set the output directory to your plugins folder, even.

This doesn't have much to do with the second topic going on in this thread about AMXX versions, but you could basically use any version you want on your own computer. It's your computer.

In conclusion, Web Compilers should be avoided and serve absolutely no point other than risking getting your plugin source stolen as much as any personal data on suspicious sites. Other than risk, It is far more than pointless and costs you extra work you can instead do with a push of a button.
Where are you getting this from?
I use the web compiler when I'm not at home to test small things either thru my phone or my work laptop. There are some benefits, but to each is own.

And how in the world do you test a plugin on a device that cannot run either a server or a game??

You're still able to download the compiled file and upload to server(s) via your phone or any device. I upload, change map via console thru the panel I have and see if it works, test different plugins during work free time and get things done on my end when something is needed or a problem arises.

Weird, but your own determination of risk and yes, each to its own.

Technically speaking (and to clarify), it's not "released". It's the new beta version. Version 1.9.0 hasn't even been "released" yet.

Nice to hear that over time, I'm now at 1.9.0 but I doubt seeing the changes they made because there are plenty of things that need to be worked on in terms of server emax
