This project has become inactive.

This project is inactive and its default file will likely not work with the most recent version of Minecraft. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.

I am no longer interested in maintaining this project. If someone else wants to take it on I'll transfer it to them.

Community Bridge links up your Minecraft player accounts to their corresponding website/forum/CMS accounts. It uses the web application's groups to assign players to permissions groups and stores various bits of information about the player in the forum's database.

Please use the issue system to submit bug reports, feature/enhancement requests and support requests.

UUIDs Most of the programming is done. Lots and lots and lots of testing to do, however.

If you'd like to help localize (translate) CommunityBridge's messages, go here: Crowd-in Project for CommunityBridge

    Agreed – this plugin is essential for my server, and I've never found anything quite like it! I'm pretty sure we could get a joint fund to support future development! I can't imagine my server without this plugin. :(

    It has been interesting working on this project. However, my enthusiasm has been waning for the last few months and I find I just don't have the head-space or energy to continue. If someone else wishes to take it on, I'll transfer the accounts to them.

    Is it possible so if someone buys a donor rank it will rank them up on the forums such as this order?

    BuyCraft > Server Rank > Forum Rank
