A plugin that will let you show player's name in the MOTD and/or randomize public motds of your server. You can also use motd to only one player.
Version: v2.4

This plugin will show a players name to themselves in the MOTD of your server (that's the message shown in the server list!)

It uses mySQL or yml (your choice) to save a players IP. Once the player has logged in at least once to save the IP, it will begin showing them a custom MOTD you define in the conifg, where %name% is replaced with the player's name! You can also set special MOTDs for just one player so that only they see it.




  • Easy config
  • YML or mySQL support
  • Custom MOTDs where %name% is replaced with a players name
  • Can set a special MOTD on a player-by-player basis
  • This plugin was tested on my server and for over a month with an average of 50 players online, thought sometimes as many as 125 players. No issues were caused via this plugin.
  • Colored MOTDs via using "&" - see colors here.


  • mySQL settings ask the basics
  • Set Main.SQL.Enabled to true if you want to use MySQL. (Database.)
  • If mySQL connection fails, it will use YML
  • Motds.MOTD? - Use %name% where you want the player's name to be
  • Motds.Count - Change this to as many motds you want it randomize through.
  • Custom MOTDs: - If a player is entered here, only they will see this motd.
  • Want colors? Use the color tags in the message.
  • Is the UpdateChecks annyoing? Turn them off in the config.

Color Codes:

Use these codes to add colors into the MOTD. Simply use the & symbol followed by the number or letter.

Example: '&9Welcome to the server, &c%name%&9!' would show: Welcome to the server, TheNameofThePlayer!

&e <<- Yellow (&e)
&f <<- White (&f)
&l <<- Bold
&m <<- Strike through line through the text.
&n <<- Underline
&o <<- Italic
&k <<- "Magic" text. (Random text.)
