Quote from Siguza:

The Future?

Since Spigot is still standing and Sponge is slowly getting somewhere, I'm not exactly sure what to do with my plugins, but I'll stick around.

I think I will port most of my plugins to Sponge, but some (like NBTLib) will hopefully not be necessary anymore.

For now, I've set all my projects to "inactive", except for VirtualPack, which I will keep compatible with Spigot, until I ported it to Sponge. If you really want to see any of my other plugins updated to Spigot, just comment on its project page.

This plugin allows you to have a predefined set of messages (usually answers to frequently asked questions) which you can send to users way faster than typing them out.


  1. Download the FAQBox.jar and place in in you plugins folder.
  2. Start your server.



check-update: Whether to check for updates or not.


You can configure your messages either by using commands (see commands section) or by directly editing the messages.ini file.
The messages.ini file has the following format:

id1=Some message here
id2=Some other message
potato=You may not throw potatoes at citizens of Minetropolis!

Useful to know:

  • When editing the file while your server is running, reload FAQBox when you're done, otherwise your changes might get lost.
  • When editing the file directly you can bypass the maximum length for chat messages.
  • When editing the file, be aware that message IDs must not contain commas!
  • You can use colors by using the & character. To actually write the & character, use &&.
  • You can use %player to be replaced by the name of the player the message is sent to.
