RandomJoinMessage | SimpleJoinMessage

Are you bored of seeing every time the same join, leave and kick messages? Do you want to... randomize? Or only want to set a single colored message? Or maybe only searching for complete group support? But maybe you want simply hide all messages.

So, take a look at RandomJoinMessage :D

Completly rewritten from SimpleJm, now to RandomJoinMessage with now COMPLETE group support! You can set the hole configuration for only one player or for only one group. For advanced users now RandomJoinMessages let's you inherit the settings from other players or groups if you want several groups with the same messages and only want to change 1 place for all.

And finally the best feature: You can randomize all your messages!

If you don't need group support you can use SimpleJoinMessages too.


The basic feature of this plugin is to change the join, leave and kick messages. But it has lot's of more features. You can simply prevent all messages, only show the messages for mods and admins, use colors, and randomize.

There is a lite version of this plugin too, with no group support and no special messages for special players. Click here for a comparison table between SimpleJoinMessage and RandomJoinMessage.

  • Custom join message
  • Custom leave message
  • Custom kick message
  • Prevent all of those messages
  • Use players display name in the messages
  • Random messages
  • Prefix messages (for example to randomize colors only; use the color as a prefix)
  • Specific messages for specific players
  • Complete group support! (requires Vault)
  • Color Codes
  • Permission support
  • Reload your configuration ingame -> No server restart needed
  • Import your configuration from SimpleJm, CustomJoinMessage or JoinMessage

    It should also work with 1.7.2, the plugin doesn't need any updates normally. The current version was actually written for 1.4.7 and I'm quite sure that it still works. I haven't tested it but about 16 other servers are running it with 1.7.2 so it will probably work for you too.

    Nice plugin! Just what i need but I will download this as soon as there is a 1.7.2 or something cause i think it won't work unless I have a 1.6.4 server but that would ruin all my other plugins. Or can i have a 1.6 plugin for a 1.7 server?

    @stapleshotz: Go

    You can disable the messages using the group option in the config file:

        prevent: true

    I could add a permission for it, but I would like to keep the message configuration completely in the plugin configuration and not move it to the configuration of the permission plugin.

    I agree, that it's nice to have all messages in a plugin (death messages and so on) but other users may don't need to change the other messages and it would be a waste of resources if they would still load a plugin for changing those messages..

    It would be great if you added control over death messages or a permission to disable join/leave messages for a player. It's nice to have everything in one plugin.

    Hmm, it should work but I take a look at it. Are you getting an error in your console?
