Auction items. What else would you want in a simple auction plugin?


As a developer I get tired of trying to find a plugin that simply does what I'd like it to do (such as simple auctions). When this occurs I tend to create a small plugin to meet the needs of what I am testing.

After doing some economy work I discovered there is a lack of auction plugins. So I made one. Enjoy.

Commands / Permissions

/auc start [amount] [startPrice] [increment] [time]dumbauction.auctionStarts an auction
/auc infodumbauction.auctionShows current auction info
/auc showqueuedumbauction.auctionShows the current queue
/auc canceldumbauction.auctionCancels an auction (permission dumbauction.admin to cancel auctions that are not your own)
/auc toggledumbauction.auctionToggles sending auction information to a player
/auc bid [amount]dumbauction.auctionBids on the current auction
/auc reloaddumbauction.adminReloads the configuration
dumbauction.auctiontrueAllows /auc
dumbauction.adminServer OPAllows /auc cancel on auctions that are not your own

Note: Players with the administrator node (dumbauction.admin) can bypass the limits in the configuration, with the exception of a few.

Statistics and Update Checking

This plugin does use a common library, CommonSense, to send statistics and complete update checks, You may disable these functions in the "DumbPlugin-Configuration.yml" file inside the plugin folder.

Update Checking

This plugin utilizes Gravity's update checker to notify when a new version of the plugin is out, it will not automatically download the new version. It also notifies the admins that a new plugin version is available. This can be enabled ordisabled in the config.yml. To disable update-checking, set updates.check-for-updates to false. To disable admin notifying, set updates.notify-admin to false.

Statistic Collection / Metrics

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

  • 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.

External Connections

This plugin makes an external call to a web service to assist in the conversion between names and UUIDs. For more information, please contact me directly. This service uses the official Mojang API to process the UUID/name of a specified player.
