Autorank v2.1

Autorank v3.3

Autorank is an automatic ranking plugin that allows you to set rank-ups that have requirements. You can create requirements that make certain a player has at least x amount of money or x minutes played.

An example:

A player starts out as Guest. When he has played for more than 10 minutes and broke at least 10 iron ore, he will be ranked up to Member where he can do a lot of other things. Then, when he has played for a couple of days and earned 1000 money, he will be promoted to Trusted; a group that allows him to do cool stuff. This can go on for as many ranks as you like. The possibilities are endless! It's up to you!


  • keeps track of how long players are online and stores it in data.yml
  • an unlimited amount of automated ranks with configurable required play times
  • permission node that excludes a certain player from being ranked up
  • permission nodes for every command
  • configurable leaderboard for most time played
  • support for either global or world specific ranks
  • can execute commands after changing rank
  • can perform effects on a player at a certain location
  • seemless mysql integration
  • a lot of special requirements
  • mega customisable
  • can interact as a group on different servers in the same server network. (Keeps track of time on the whole server network)

Autorank can check:

  • votes
  • time played
  • experience
  • money
  • worlds
  • gamemode
  • items
  • blocks
  • inventory
  • broken specific blocks
  • placed specific blocks
  • location
  • damage taken
  • specific mobs killed
  • faction power
  • players killed
  • total time on server
  • total time on your server network
  • WorldGuard regions
  • movement (by boat, foot, horse, cart or piggy)
  • mcMMO skills
  • permissions
  • amount of items crafted
  • times sheep sheared
  • fish caught
  • More to come - just ask!

I do not support dev builds. I may redirect you to a dev build to help test a new feature or check if a bug you reported is fixed, but use on a production server is highly discouraged. Those builds also do not provide the security that BukkitDev offers.


This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to (These stats can only be seen by the Autorank development team, and will never be shared with anybody else).

  • 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
  • Whether you use the MySQL system of Autorank

    If you wish to disable this feature, you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/


This plugin has a built-in auto-updater, which connects to BukkitDev to check for updates. If you, for some reason, wish to disable this process, you can do so by disabling 'auto-updating' and 'version checking' in the advanced config.


When you need Autorank to import time from other plugins you can use these converters:


Autorank is using an advanced UUID system (for Minecraft 1.8) which is complex, but nevertheless explainable: When someone tries to perform a command that requires a player name, such as /ar check <playername>, Autorank will look up the UUID of that player via the Mojang website. I will not go into detail on how it does that, as that's too complex, but if you're interested you can look it up at Github.

Autorank is using a specific part of the Mojang website (called, which is very secure. Autorank makes sure there are no traces of lookup left behind so that any player is completely anonymous. If you feel like Autorank might have a problem, please do ask. I'm glad to fix any problems that occur during runtime.

I cannot, however, ensure that Mojang is storing the lookups anonymously. But as you probably already have a Mojang account (because you play Minecraft), I can assume you trust Mojang to store their data nice and secure so no hacker can access it. If you feel like Autorank is harming you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask us and we'll try to answer your questions as adequately as we feel is possible.

    I just added autorank to my server. I want it to work with GroupManager. I had groupmanager already before and since I just got auto rank, do I have to set something up so they work together. Does it automatically do that?

    Hi there, for some reason when I added the redstone ore to the break blocks section in the config file (blocks broken5: value: 73;64;0;redstone-ore) and tested it on the server, it wouldn't understand that I broke the blocks, but it did understand all the other ones?

    When I typed in /ar check it showed me all the items that needed to be completed to rank up and what was already completed, but once I ranked up to the next rank and used that same command it would not show the list for the new rank? It only said I ranked up. Is there a different command so players can see what they need to complete?

    I was also wondering, if I have one world full of arenas and I need mobs killed in another world (survival world), will Autorank only pick up the kills in the world I specified in the config file (world value: survival) or will it include mobs killed from all the worlds including the arena world?

    Also, if I have crackshot on my server and if I would like to give a player a gun when they rank up and use the (; shot give &p riotshield) will Autorank understand to give the player that gun or does it only understand the Minecraft commands?

    Thank you :D

    Players that are auto-ranked get unranked when they rejoin the server. Please help!

    @Staartvin I've sent you a PM with my skype but you still haven't answered or added me. Players in all my network servers can't use the rank check command and It gives internal error. Please, I really need to solve this problem as soon as possible...

    does this support per world stats? like for example: i need 10 kills to get ranked up to PvPHero in the pvp world(with per world perms/ranks supported by pex), so i kill 5 people in the pvp world but then i kill 5 more in there a way to only count the 5 in the pvp world and not count the kills from survival towards the PvPHero auto rank?

    Take a look at this page of the wiki:

    It explains how to setup Autorank for your minecraft server network (or bungee).

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
