Don't get join-killed ever again!
This is my second public Bukkit plugin. Enjoy!

PvPTimer banner

Are you tired of those player-killers who keep tracking down the new members on your server? Well, there is a solution! PvPTimer will protect players from PvP for a set amount of time, and during that time will be able to build and discover the server, without worrying about those pesky player-killers! :)

Plugin suggested by Highneon from the awesome KingsOfMinecraft forum. Thanks to him! :)

Download and other links

I am aware of the issues present. If PvPTimer 1.3 does not work for you, please downgrade to 1.2, this should fix your issues till I manage to issue a new build. Thanks everyone for being so patient!

Submitting feature requests/bug reports

If you want to submit a feature request or a bug report:

  • If you would like to report a bug, please be as clear as possible: tickets which aren't clear enough will be marked as Invalid or Waiting.
  • If you have a crash log, please use a pasting service to post it, such as Pastebin, Pastie, or BukkitDev's own paste service.
  • If you submit a log, please add information. Tickets showing logs with a description such as "It does not work" will be rejected. When does it happen? Did it happen once or is it recurrent?
