Normally, if a new player joins your Server, he is a guest or something else. You have to promote every single player by hand. If you have a big server, you have to promote players all day. But now, the players can promote themselfes by just typing in a password, that you have hidden in the rules or somewhere on your website.


  • Sends a message to new players
  • Let new players promotes themselfes with a password
  • Freeze new players
  • Mute new players
  • Create random tokens for groups
  • Limited and unlimited usage of tokens


If a new player joins your server, he will see a message, that you can set in the config file. Then he can type /apply [Password]. If the password is right, he will get promoted to the Member group. Simple, isn't it?


  • /apply [Password] - If [Password] is equals ths password in your config, the commandsender will be promotet to group.
  • /applyreload - Reloads the config File, you need have the pwpromote.reload permissons.
  • /token [token] - Uses a token
  • /createtoken [group] [usage] - Creates a random token for the given group. Set the usage to -1 for unlimited usage (You can add own tokens by adding them to the config and reloading the plugin)


  • pwpwomote.reload - Allows the reloading of the plugin
  • pwpromote.token.use.[token] - Allows the using of the given token
  • pwpromote.token.use.* - Allows the use of all tokens
