Usage and Information:

This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to

  • A unique identifier
  • The server's version of Java
  • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
  • The plugin's version
  • The server's version
  • The OS version/name and architecture
  • The core count for the CPU
  • The number of players online
  • The Metrics version Opting out of this service can be done by editing plugins/Plugin Metrics/config.yml and changing opt-out to true.

This plugin features an update command which will check if you are running the latest build and download the update to the plugin folder if it not currently installed. You are required to trigger the command manually and you must restart or reload the server for changes to take effect.

Thanks to my donators!

    Creates a 20-30 second lag spike whenever a message is broadcasted (not sure if this pluign or just server messages in general). Here is my config.yml:

    Good evening,

    Like CJ, I would also like to request a command to allow users to enable or disable viewing of the automessages on their own accord. Some veterans who play on our server no longer see messages as helpful, but rather as spamming. I've reduced the rate that messages are sent to the point where it is a crawl, but they still would just rather not see them. However, newbies will still benefit greatly from this information and I strongly prefer not manually editing every person's permission. A toggle on/off feature for lists would be fantastic. Thank you!

    Bug report: Using \n at the beginning of a messages: for example:

        - '\n&8[Missive]&7 Set ye home with &9/sethome'

    Will kick EVERY player from the server when its run, saying that the json is not formatted correctly, you can use \n later on though, which makes no sense at all.

    Hi! I have an idea. Add per world message list support to the plugin.

    Can I make a suggestion here? I would like for there to be a permission like automessage.command.enabled.message-list: Allows user to toggle a certain list. I am requesting this feature because I would like for streamers to be able to enable their own automessages. Also, not sure if possible but if you could update it for 1.7.9-R0.1, that would be great :)

    In regards to my previous comment, apparently I missed a " ' " at the end. Although can you make it so it just puts an error in console rather than disabling the whole plugin. Your plugin appears to be the only one that disables it completely forcing a restart when players are on.

    I did a reload a few times and it eventually broke the plugin, never happened with other plugins before. Is this normal with automessage?

Would you like to see pre-scheduled messages?
