    The permissions plugins that allow you to do something like "*" also have ways for you to define permissions as "do not give." Go read the documentation for your permissions plugin, or don't use "*" :)

    Oh? I'm using PEX. Didn't know you can deny permissions.

    often referred to as negative permissions..
    in bPermissions its ^ before the node, most other perm plugins its -

    While that may be, I would imagine a lot of people aren't going to be interested in using the silent join feature, so a config setting to completely disable it would make sense.

    If you don't want to use the feature, don't give yourself the permission to use the feature. I'm not adding redundant controls for people who can't figure out how to not give themselves something. For a standard car metaphor, it would be like a car dealership including a manual entitled "How to not reset your trip meter" with the instructions "don't touch it."


    In related news, VNP 1.8.5 released, the only change is that this is compatible with CB 1534 and above (Stay on 1.8.4 if you're on an older version of 1.0.0 and stay on 1.8.3 if you're still on 1337)

    Note you need to acquire the latest spout, which they just updated.

    I like using the silent join feature, but I really wish it would "remember" my last setting. Its not as big a deal for me, the server owner, but my mods like to join normal and CHOOSE wether to vanish.

    Also, they are comlaining that everytime they vanish, they are invisible to users on the server. They would like a toggle to wether they showup in the player list or not. Sometimes they want to stay hidden and watch griefers, but be visible in the /who list so that people know theres a mod on. As it stands now, if we are invisible NOBODY knows there are mods on and they cant request help, its kind of annoying.

    We came to this vanish from another one, because we LIKE the invisible mode, but we don't always want to be INVISIBLE while vanished. It would be nice if we could do /invislbe to toggle invisiblilty in the /who list or not. Maybe you can add that feature in.

    Does this work with PEX or is just recommended not to use it?

    It works with PEX. Our server uses both without issue.

    I can't seem to get the toggles to work. I assigned admins '*' and vanish.* . What am I doing wrong?

    What, specifically, is the issue? Are they unable to vanish at all? Or are they joining as vanished when they shouldn't be?

    I'm assuming you get the error "You can't toggle that" or similar. In the vanishnopacket config, set permtest to enabled, and give yourself the permission vanish.permtest.self
    Join the server and try /permtest vanish.toggle.see
    Let me know what happens :)

    I do not have vanish.toggle.see
    If I gave Admins '*' and 'vanish.*' I should have it though, right?

    Yes. vanish.* gives all the toggles. Make sure you're running the latest version of pex, there was a version or two that broke parent/child permission node relationships, which is what vanish.* uses.

    Well, I don't know what to tell you then. You're clearly not getting permissions you should be. Do /permtest vanish.*

    I can't support your permissions plugin, that's something to ask those folks :)

    How bout a toggle so we can toggle if we are invisible to users (via /who or what not) so that we can become vanished, but remain visible in a user list... my mods want to watch what people do, but want people to KNOW they are actually online, rather then being 100% invisible... maybe a /invisible will toggle that

    I would love to see several layers of see invis. setup.
    I dont know if this is possible, but it would be nice to toggle these on or off.
    So we can check up on lower level staff :)
    Like Vanish.1 Vanish.2 Vanish.3 or something, just a thought. I'll let you pass or run with this at your leisure.

    Thanks again for a great plugin!

    Is there a plugin that features /poof and /fq without the Spout requirement? I don't like Spout :(

    There's the Vanish 2 plugin (which at this time I believe is just a rebranded version of the old one?), but it can be exploited by griefers. Your choice which you use.

    I may add a non-spout option to VanishNoPacket for people who have inexplicable fears of spout.

    That would be great! What do you mean with "exploited by griefers"? Is it that they can see the hidden player in some way?

    Just stoppin by to say thanks for this great plugin! Works great as a spell for my spies and for spying on hackers :p

    Yes, there are several griefing clients that let you see players when they're vanished but not with spout. That's why VanishNoPacket uses spout, for that 100% protection

    Great plugin. A must have tool for server admins who want to catch bad players.
    It would be awesome if you added it to BukkitUpdate so I can update it even easier.
    Thanks. Keep it up :)

    These are the nodes I got
    Code:
      - vanish.silentjoin
      - vanish.silentquit
      - vanish.vanish
      - vanish.see
      - vanish.nopickup
      - vanish.nofollow
      - vanish.preventincomingdamage
      - vanish.fakeannounce
      - vanish.statusupdates
      - anish.hooks.dynmap.alwayshidden
      - vanish.toggle
    But the problem is that:
    #1 Player can still see me in the TAB menu (using mChat http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/mchat/)
    #2 After logging in vanished and unvanishing I still got godmode and there is no join/leave message
    #3 the small "vanished" sign in the lower left is missing

    We use bPermissions / latest spoutraft / bukkit 1555 / spout 583
    Code:
    fakeannounce:
      automaticforsilentjoin: true
      join: '%p joined the game.'
      quit: '%p left the game.'
    hooks:
      essentials: false
      dynmap: true
      JSONAPI: false
    enableColoration: true
    spoutcraft:
      enable: true
    updates:
      check: false
    permtest:
      enable: false
