  • Items can be given to player.
  • Commands can be run through console upon voting.
  • Service-specific awards.
  • Permission-specific awards.
  • Vote counting.
  • Vote count awards.
  • Timed commands.
  • Timed commands continue after restarting server.
  • Config variables.
  • Color codes in config.


Requires Votifier

  1. Drop SimpleVoteListener.jar into your plugins directory.
  2. Reload or restart your server.
  3. Done!

note: You don't need to do anything special to get SimpleVoteListener to connect to Votifier

  • %name% - Username of the player. Not the nickname.
  • %ip% - IP Address of the player who voted
  • %time% - Not sure what format of time, Votifier handles the format.
  • %service% - Service used when voting, eg. ""
  • %votes% - Amount of times player has voted.
  • %connection - Returns "online" or "offline" accordingly.


Nothing is Happening on Vote

  • Check to make sure the port you are using in your Votifier config is not already in use.
  • Read the Troubleshooting section on the Votifier page.

Plugin not generating files

  • Make sure your plugins folder isn't restricted. Usually this is not the case if other plugins can write files to it.
  • Try using Java 7 instead of Java 6.
  • Check that you're using the correct version of CraftBukkit corresponding to the version of SVL.

Config not working

  • Parse your config by pasting it. If there is an error it will tell you the line and column number!
  • Make sure you are using correct variables (listed above)

Commands not being run

  • Check to make sure you have a plugin that can run the commands you are trying to run!
  • Some plugins don't let certain commands run from the console, and there is nothing that can be done except look for a different plugin!

Connecting to Votifier but not SVL

  • Make sure SVL started up without errors and is enabled by typing /pl (it should be green in the list).
  • Make sure config works by checking advanced setups section of Configuration Page

    The plugin works fine.

    Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.

    Config file posted on either or Actual problem typed and explained to best of detail: I'm not sure why, but it says it's connected, the plugin is enabled, and one of the commands are being run. I know for a fact that all the commands I entered are able to be executed because they are Essentials commands. The only command that is working is the console sending mail to the player with my edited message.
