AutoRanker automatically executes commands on players when the players have met certain requirements in their LogBlock history, in terms of number of blocks created and blocks destroyed, and time spent online.

The intended use case for this plugin is to have players automatically promoted through different ranks as the amount of their work on the server accumulates. Note that this use requires a separate plugin to facilitate ranking commands, such as bPermissions.

Currently the plugin checks if a player meets the requirements of each rank when they log in. If there is interest among server admins, I could make it check periodically for each player that is logged in.

Usage Configuration

The config file is plugins/AutoRanker/config.yml.

Provide a list of ranks in the configuration file. For each rank, provide the set of requirements for achieving that rank, such as the following:

  • created: blocks placed
  • destroyed: blocks destroyed
  • daysonline: days since the player's first login
  • hoursonline: hours the player has spent logged in
  • haspermission: a prerequisite permission, such as for a base group
  • hasnotpermission: a postrequisite permission, to indicate that a player already has this rank or otherwise shouldn't be eligible for it
    • If your groups inherit group.… permissions, this should be the permission that is to be granted for this rank. Otherwise it can be left blank.

For each rank, also provide the commands that should be executed when the requirements are met, in which {PLAYER} is replaced by the name of the player who has met the requirements.

Example configuration

Below is an example configuration with two ranks, builder and architect, using bPermissions to manage the player groups.

      daysonline: 2
      hoursonline: 2
      created: 1000
      destroyed: 2000
      haspermission: group.default
      hasnotpermission: group.builder
      - exec u:{PLAYER} a:setgroup v:builder
      - say {PLAYER} has achieved Builder rank.
      daysonline: 60
      hoursonline: 24
      created: 10000
      destroyed: 20000
      haspermission: group.builder
      hasnotpermission: group.architect
      - exec u:{PLAYER} a:setgroup v:architect
      - say {PLAYER} has achieved Architect rank.

Commands & Permissions

  • command: /autorank reload
  • permission: autorank.reload (default: op)
  • Reload the ranks from the config file.


  • Autorank - rank based on amount of time played
  • Ranker - rank based on amount of time played, money held, players killed, monsters killed


LogBlock is required.

To use the hours online and days online rank requirements, you must have in your LogBlock configuration logPlayerInfo set to true, e.g.:

  logPlayerInfo: true

    Please advise if this plugin is still being maintained and status on UUID support. Thanks.

    Hi. Can "hasnotpermission" take multiple values, and if so, what is the layout?

    Or, is there a way to exclude certain users from the tests?

    Probably. Let me know if you have any issues with it on 1.6.

    Does this plug-in support 1.6?

    I would use script block, might take some getting used to, but you can do basically anything with it.

    Hello clehner

    I'm looking for a way up the ranks to users after passing a test of questions about the rules, know of any plugin that does this? or you could implement something like that?

    It would be something as simple as pressing a button or sign.

    Thank you. -------- Edit.

    I have found this, but not if it is really what I'm looking for.

    @Piero123: Go

    I bet it does.

    @MinerMtfull: Go

    Copy the example config file on this page to plugins/AutoRanker/config.yml Then edit it with the ranks you would like to have. The plugin will grant players promotions according to the requirements that you specify in the config. You do not have to promote people - the plugin does that. Server chat is not used by the plugin except for "/autorank reload" which will cause it to reload the ranks from the config file.

    I don't get how i create the ranks!! Do i do it in the server chat or in the CraftBukkit server files? Also do i have to promote people myself or does the plugin do it for me?
