  • Allows users to create coupons: minecoupon.create
  • Allows users to remove coupons: minecoupon.remove

Type InGame: /coupon to get help.

  • Apply Coupon: /coupon <couponcode>
  • Create Coupon: /coupon create <applications> <valid_trough> <command> <multible_use>
  • List Coupons: /coupon list
  • Remove Coupon: /coupon remove <couponcode>
  • <applications> ... How many times the coupon can be used. (use -1 for ∞)
  • <valid_trough> .... Timeto make the coupon invalid (use second, minute, hour, day, week, month - e.g: 2week)
  • <command> ....... Command that should be executed when redeeming. (instead of SPACE use ?)
  • <multible_use> ....... Let the same player use the coupon multible times (parameter can be: true, false)
  • To get playername in command use %player%
  • To set more commands use ; - e.g: money?give?%player%100;op?%player%

e.g: /coupon create 1 1week deop?noch false This creates a coupon that can be used once. If the code is entered before 1 week after generation the command "deop noch" will be executed.

Information MineAdmin Collects

In order to offer some comfort features the plugin needs to collect data. In this part we will disclose all types of information collected by MineAdmin.

Check for Updates feature

Every time a permitted user enters the server MineAdmin checks if a newer version is available.

  • Collected information: Pluginversion
  • Information gets transmitted to: inapp.xtrsource.com
  • The Webapp generates an answer (a simple string) that is read by the plugin. Nothing of the transmitted information is stored on our servers.
  • To disable this function remove the permission (minecoupon.checkupdate) or set allowcheck_update: false in the config file.
Plugin Metrics

MineAdmin uses PluginMetrics in order to let us operate effectively and provide you the best plugins, services and experiences we can.

  • PluginMetrics is a standard library that is also used by many other plugins. It collects anonymus data and transmitts it to mcstats.org.
  • The collected data is displayed under: http://mcstats.org/plugin/MineCoupon
  • To disable this library visit the PluginMetrics folder and set opt-out: true in the config file. (setting allowpluginmetrics to false in MineCoupon config. will prevent MineCoupon of creating a PluginMetrics folder and using the library if there are no other plugins - e.g. Essentials, LWC, dynmap, Vault, AuthMe, ChestShop, LogBlock - using PluginMetrics installed.)

Where do I get help?

    This isn't implemented in the current version of the plugin. But the next update will give you that option.

    I look forward to release it in the next 5 days.

    Try to connect to your SQLite or MySQL database and check if the same code is twice there.

    @Lars123123: Go

    this is not a problem but minecoupon citizen that does not allow the creation of NPC via the console. This is normal because the console via can not define the exact position of the NPC. Look in the logs you'll see. I tried for you and here is what the logs show:

    [INFO] Mortiloche Issued server command: /coupon k9om5 => the code
    [INFO] false => significant that the coupon is used by the player. (multi use is denied appears therefore false)
    [INFO] You must use this command ingame => Which indicates that the command should be used in game because the console does not just generate the npc.

    So this does not come from minecoupon. Cordially.

    love the plugin but is there a way to make it so that people can use the commands from the coupon like /give or /i etc... without having to changing it in there permission file? Like make it so they can only use that command when they are using that coupon?
