 should be able to use it. It's true it's been a while i haven't updated
 it, sorry for that.

 Not a problem. However, a lot of WordPress users are put off from
 installing a plugin that doesn't get regular updates, even if the
 functionality works. It is an investment, so I think in that light people
 would like core BuddyPress support for them since they won't have to worry
 about it anymore.

 Also, I know users can create their own shortcodes with your plugin, but I
 think many won't be able to. I, for example, am not a developer and
 wouldn't know how to even start doing that.

 I think, while your plugin does still work, shortcodes are becoming such
 an important feature in WordPress that it should be supported as the core
 of BuddyPress and not rely on third party developers.
