EssBans fills a hole in the Essentials ban system. It allows you to see the reason why a player was banned, or in the case of a temporary ban, show the length.

It currently does not show when the ban was created, however that functionality is planned.

Git Repository:


/bans [player]

Where [player] is the player to be queried. This is case insensitive, however the name must be written in full. This will show whether the player is banned or not, and the reason why. Note that if an invalid name is entered, no information will be shown.


Usage of the /bans command is controlled by a single permission. This permission is given to ops by default, but can be added with another Permissions plugin.

essbans.bans - Allows access to the /bans command.

    Does this plugin tell the banned player, when they're trying to connect, the reason for their ban?

    @AlphaFarer: Go

    In the future I was thinking I might make it send bans to a SQL database. That can be interpreted easily enough someone with a little bit of website knowledge.

    Could you add function, when user has been banned by Essentials there would show in web like with UltraBans. UltraBans use own ban system, so that's why UltraBans suck :/.

    Sounds like a decent add on. However, you can just use /seen.
