    No, it is an alternative to the future tense. There are several.

    'Which plugin do you think will be created?'
    May it be the simple future tense wanted by the OP?
    Not a teacher.

    Re: This sentence is correct?

    Not if you want to keep the meaning. Changing "want" to "think" changes the meaning of the sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: This sentence is correct?

    If the meaning remained unchanged, the future tense would be unneeded.
    Is it correct? Not a teacher.

    Re: This sentence is correct?

    No. To change "What do you want ...?" to the future 'tense' (bear in mind that we don't have a set/standard future tense in English), you would say "What will you want ...?"

    pows, both emsr2d2 and I have told you before that "This sentence is correct?" is not the way to construct a question. You need to change the word order. "Is this sentence correct?"
