AdminChat Logo

AdminChat allows admins to have private conversations about users or any other server issues without disrupting the public or letting everyone see what they are discussing.

Updating to 1.3+

Please note, that the permission nodes have all changed as of this update! By default, the plugin creates an "adminchat" in the channels.yml, and this has the same format as previous versions of adminchat. The perm node to use this chat will be


  • Let all admins online talk to each other privately
  • Configurable format for the chat
  • Allows creation of multiple channels
  • Allows choosing the command for the channel
  • Automatic update checking

Upcoming features (1.5.0)

  • Individual Read/Send permissions per channel
  • A mute command for either one or all channels, as well as unmuting
  • Muting for a specified amount of time.


Config.yml: update-check:

  • Default: true
  • Checks for updates to adminchat on server startup, and will message ops/players with all perms on startup (if true) prefix:
  • Default: "&a[&cAdminChat&a] "
  • Prefix for plugin messages (for example automatic chat and updates)


    command: 'chancmd'
    format: '&aEXAMPLE: {NAME}: &c{MESSAGE}'

You can make as many channels as you want within the channels.yml file. The "command" line will be the command you use in-game (along with <command-name>toggle), and the "format" line will be how it is presented in-game. Please note you should always include {NAME} and {MESSAGE} in the file exactly with the curly braces or the two will not show up.


  • /adminchat reload - reloads AdminChat, getting fresh values from the configuration files.
  • /<channel-command> <message> - send a message to a private channel Ex. /ac What's going on in adminchat today?
  • /<channel-command>toggle - toggled chatting within a private channel Ex. /actoggle
  • /<channel-command> - same as above, toggle chatting within a private channel Ex. /ac

    I've replaced Metrics with a newer version which doesn't use the deprecated getOnlinePlayers method. (I'm also not sure if BuildTools still includes the deprecation mappings, so this method may not work any more anyway.)

    I've fixed the update check in 1.4.4, feel free to update. The update checker for versions 1.2.0 - 1.4.3 should be fixed soon, but I can't confirm that.

    Working perfectly in 1.9.4.

    However, I occasionally get this error message in the console:

    Should also mention that I have had to disable update check, we are running the latest version but have been getting nagged each time an admin logs in that there is a new version available (but there's not).

    If anyone wants to run this plugin on spigot 1.9 or later, you will need to remap some legacy methods as mentioned here in this post (under craftbukkit).

    Basically, download the jar file from bukkitdev (should be named lift.jar). Then put the jar in spigot's buildtools folder and run this command from a terminal like GitBash (command prompt, etc.):

    java -jar BuildData/bin/SpecialSource-2.jar map -m CraftBukkit/deprecation-mappings.csrg -i AdminChat.jar -o AdminChat-1.9.jar

    Then simply install the AdminChat-1.9.jar file on your server, and delete the previous file. Everything should work fine when you load up the plugin. I've done this in order in continue using a stable version of the AdminChat plugin on my server, I have had no issues thus so far. Good luck!

    The plugin should work fine on 1.9 (you can ignore the Metrics getOnlinePlayers() bug).

    /.:ac is an alias for /ac due to the way the plugin registers commands, however it doesn't work properly due to how the plugin resolves the commands.
