Metrics | Updater

We use metrics to collect stats! We only collect basic things such as version type, and players online. If you want to see everything, click on the graph. Go into /plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml to disable stat collecting if you wish.
We also include an update checker. It will download the latest updates for you. If you'd like to disable it, go into /plugins/ServerTutorial/config.yml

    Just wanted to give a status of what is going on. I am currently testing server tutorial to make sure no bugs that I can find exist before uploading a new release. So far this is what will be in the next release.

    • Rewards System
    • UUID compatibility
    • Added in the API ability to get tutorial name from when player switches views
    • Plugin will track which tutorials players have been in so as to not double reward
    • Hopefully have squashed the double view bug ( Have yet to duplicate the glitch myself)
    • Ability to turn metrics off for the plugin itself, as opposed using global metrics file which turns off metrics for all plugins.
    • You will be able to change any configuration options from within the game, don't have to manually edit the config file.
    • for some of the above such as the config option in game, there will be added permission nodes.
    • Multi-line text support will come at a later time as it will require a re-write of a lot of the code to add it in, but do know it will eventually be added.

    Think that is it for now.

    @Hockeyfan360: Go

    That has already been completed in the Dev builds. So you will have that feature in the upcoming release. :)

    I think that you should also add a feature where you can add currency to a player's balance after completing a tutorial!

    Yes it does teleport players around for the views. I am currently working for the text tutorials, to allow for multi-line text to be set. Instead of just a single line. My goal is to get a release out by the end of this week. So for me that is next Saturday. Currently I am the only one working on an update. Hence why it is taking some time. Anyways that is the approximate timeline of when the next release will hopefully be ready :)

    @Toxicterror1991: Go

    If you paid attention to it, its fixed in the upcoming next release. Its not fixed in a version on bukkit, no, but I don't see a reason to keep a ticket open when I have fixed it. You can look on the github to see I have been working on it.

    @DanSpedey: Go

    Some people care about it, and I do intend resolving the double post bug. However

    I have updated this project page to include where Development builds can be found if you want to help with squashing bugs before the next release or help with testing which will and does help and will be much appreciated if you do help. The development builds are not approved by the BukkitDev staff as well as they may or may not contain bugs so its advised to not use it on a productiong server if you would like to help with testing it, so use them at your own risk.

    Also, I am currently working on making the plugin support multi-line tutorials as well.
