What is AutoMessage?

AutoMessage is an easy to use chat scheduler plugin. It is a plugin perfect for server admins who would like to announce broadcasts at configurable intervals. The plugin features a rich in-game config editor as well as the ability to edit the config from the disk. The plugin is designed to be very lightweight and cause no impact on server resources! The plugin is updated within days of new releases to ensure complete up-to-date server compatibility! Check out the plugin review here!


  • Fully configurable configuration!
  • Rich in-game config editor!
  • Quick and painless reloading!
  • Option to randomize broadcasts!
  • Color code support!!
  • Run commands in your messages!


Just drag and drop into your plugins folder then restart or reload your server! Simple!

Usage and Information:

This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

This plugin features an update command which will check if you are running the latest build and download the update to the plugin folder if it not currently installed. You are required to trigger the command manually and you must restart or reload the server for changes to take effect.

Thanks to my donators!

    @darkraipikachu: Go

    Have you tried reading all the instructions in all the links underneath Usage and Information? Those offer advice and instructions in configuring the plugin to your needs. Have you tried 0? List indices start at 0 and increment from then (see /am list [message-list]).

    The error with the plugin not working most likely involves your config being configured incorrectly. The configuration is loaded using a YAML parser which is very sensitive to even the slightest of errors. Remember a computer is reading the file through a set of predefined rules and does not read it the same way a human does. Therefore even though you may intend something, the computer may not understand that if it is not configured correctly. BE SURE to check your config for any errors using a YAML parser:

    Paste your config in there and any errors should be drawn to your attention there. If you still cannot solve your issue then open up a ticket with your config, error log and any other relevant information that I might need to know to help solve your problems.

    Finally I would appreciate if you would not come onto this thread screaming for help. I have dedicated a couple years to the management of this plugin during some of my free time which includes helping people like you who do not read before posting. If you need help, ask politely and provide error logs, configurations and descriptions of your problems and preferably submit these through the ticket system provided at:

    Ok…even though the config sucks balls, the in-game commands are a little bit better! Thing is, wtf is Index? I have 2 messages and I can't remove them! I do /am remove vanilla (random numbers), but nothing works! I've tried every number 1-10 and idk what to do! Help!

    Yea…this is unbelievable! I've been trying for literally two hours to change like five lines on the config and it won't freaking work! I tried getting newer versions, older versions, and nothing! My config is right! I swear! I've checked and when I try to type something new there are no errors! Please Please PLEASE fix EVERYTHING in the next update! And to do this will take probably months considering all the bugs and problems!

    SO MANY BUGS!!!! OMG! First of all, 2.5.2 does't even work, second, editing the config is like a ticking bomb; there's a chance it won't work if you change one thing, and there's an even smaller chance editing will work! It's a good plugin, if you have hours of spare time trying to get it to work!

    What does "Index" mean? when it says at preferred index, what does it mean by index?

    When I edit one of the messages it works, but it instantly crashes everyone's client.

    @GodsDead: Go

    @tjbruce: Go

    You can simply add [Message group 1] before each message you wish to broadcast.

    Can you pls add support for prefixes and suffixes like AutoMessage v2.4.0

  • Avatar of GodsDead GodsDead Jul 12, 2014 at 11:59 UTC - 0 likes

    If you removed prefix and suffix from message lists in the latest version does this mean we cannon set custom names in the chat for the messages like [Message group 1] The message, [Message group 2] The message

Would you like to see pre-scheduled messages?
