Force your players to welcome new people!

Have you ever been caught in the awkward position of having a brand new player join your server, but instead of saying welcome, EVERYONE just flat-out IGNORES him?? Then he leaves and never comes back. This fixes that!


This plugin will detect if a person the plugin hasn't seen before joins your server.
It then waits a small amount of time and then randomly chooses online players to say a randomly chosen welcome message over a period of time.


%p = The name of the person joining. Example: LeEtGuY388
%l = The Lowercase name of the person joining. Example: leetguy388
%n = The name of the person joining without numbers. Example: LeEtGuY
%s = The first three letters of the name. Example: LeE

Use these variables to your advantage when setting the messages to make it appear genuine!

    (This doesn't have to do with the fact that this is my plugin, just a moderator note)

    You need to make a new project and upload your file, you aren't allowed to put up direct links on BukkitDev

    Thanks for updating my plugin, though.

    Yes.. I really need only a few players welcoming, and not everyone.

    Can you make it so it only gets like 2 - 4 players say welcome because i have some times with over 100+ players online and when a player joins it lags the server with all welcomes !

    @Lildirt If you have 100+ people on, you don't really need to strive to try to keep new players by welcoming them! :D

    I think the trollface is perfect, because this plugin is a REAL troll to people with bigger servers. If you have 100 people on and someone new joins, GOODBYE CHAT.

    Paste long stuff with Pastebin | Be sure to use a YAML Parser to debug YML files!

    Did I do something awesome? Maybe you want to toss a quarter my way?
