This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to (These stats can only be seen by the Autorank development team, and will never be shared with anybody else).

  • 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

If you wish to disable this feature, you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/
