    ThumbsApply - The Auto-Application Plugin:
    Version: v3.1.2
    Tested Builds: #2034 (1.2.3-R0.1)

    ThumbsApply is a plugin, that makes life for admins a lot easier. You can not only auto-promote your server guests by letting them enter a password, hidden in the rules or by setting a certain time they have to be online.
    You can also Mute your Guests and show them a special Message on joining the server if you want. This Plugin supports Permissions 3.x, GroupManager, PermissionsEx, bPermissions and PermissionsBukkit.

    * Auto-promote Guests on your server
    * Mute guests
    * Show guests a special MotD
    * Fully customizable player messages
    * Supports per world promotion
    * Supports most common permissions plugins
    * Modular structure, you can download only the modules that you need
    * Promotion through password or after a certain time
    * Logs all promotions

    I put a lot of effort and time into this plugin, in which I don't get paid. If you enjoy this plugin, feel free to donate here if you want. The money will be directly referred to my minecraft server.


    * apply: | usage: /apply <password> | description: Promotes the player if the password is correct.
    * apply: | usage: /apply timeleft (if you have a group with MethodTimedPromotion) | description: Returns you the time left until promotion.


    * ThumbsApply.NotGuest: give it to your groups with building rights (required).
    * group.<groupname>: give the permission to every group, replace groupname with the name of the group you are giving the permission to. This is to handle group management in permissions plugins that don't support that natively.


    Here is a default Config with all entries explained:

    options: <-----General Options
    chatBlockEnabled: false <------Block Guests from chatting?
    joinMessageEnabled: true <-------Enable an extra join message for guests?
    tickDelay: 60000 <-------The delay between two ticks (higher is performance friendlier, but less accurate)
    blockPasswordInChat: true <-------Block the usage of the password in the chat (by both guests and players)?
    groups: <------Group configuration
    User: default <-----Any group below Users gets promoted to User after entering the password "default"
    Mod: '%1000' <------Any group below Mod gets promoted to Mod after being online for 1000 minutes


    3.0+ variables:
    * {player} outputs the player name
    * {group} outputs the group name
    * {password} outputs the password (only available with password promotion)
    * {time} outputs the time left until promotion (only available with timed promotion)

    Show Spoiler
    v2.1 or later:
    Just edit the file "localization.yml" made in /plugins/ThumbsApply/localization to your likes. DO NOT remove any single quotes. The $0 in JOIN_MESSAGE_PASSWORD and JOIN_MESSAGE_TIME represents the player name, the $1 in JOIN_MESSAGE_TIME represents the time the player has left until he gets promoted. The $0 in TIME_TO_GO_CHAT represents the time the player has left until he gets promoted.

    v2.4 or later:
    The Localization supports the standard Minecraft color codes as well as the following variables:
    * {player} outputs the player name
    * Temporarily removed: {timeleft} outputs the time left until promotion


    Multi-Permissions Version:
    <Edit by Moderator: Redacted bit url>

    Modules (for v3.x):
    * ModuleTimedPromotion

    edit: hmm thats weird. just looked into my plugin.yml and there isnt the dependency anywhere :confused: might have overwritten the file with another plugin accidentally, ill recompile and upload again.

    yep, was the wrong plugin. the right one is up now.

    please use the most recent version. i uploaded a fix for that without updating the change log.

    Let me start by saying what you are doing is awesome work. Okay, I have been using your plugin for about a week, and it's great, what I was hoping to know is if you have a way of promoting someone from a lower level to higher level of access, it doesn't necessarily have to be from guest to non-guest. For example, I have Guests who cannot build but after 30 mins are promoted to Regular Player, which have build/use, but I have another group of players who are VIP that have spent at least 4 months on the server that have much more access then regular players. Could I do that right now? If not, might you take it as a suggestion.

    thx for your fast update
    promotion process works but it doesnt say you got promoted, instead it says an internal error occured..

    thats what i logged:

    By 2 groups does this still mean Guest vs Builder for example? I'm trying to figure out a way to make it so that new players have to enter a password to be able to speak and build, but also after a certain number of playing hours get automatically promoted to a higher rank.
    What I mean is Guest + reading the rules = Builder + 15 hours gameplay = Veteran

    put the message in single quotes, it should work.

    fix is up on the thread, wont upload it to bukkitdev for now.

    that feature was removed in 2.0, im currently making a plugin that covers exactly that.

    ohh... i think you have to change the yaml format to unicode, its written in ansii... or something like that. i have literally no idea how that works, just google it.

    edit: to kinda prove my point: thats what I see when i open the dropbox file:
    Usa ßßßß ÿûâûâ âûàï ûâà ï /apply password
    so not the russian (?) letters from your screenshot.

    Is there chance getting this work from other specified group other than default ? like AutoPromo plugin that is now dead and there is no replacement.

  17. Offline


    i see the same if go to link, but if you download it and open youll see the rus letters
  18. Offline


    Im using plain permissions and when the user types in /apply password it places them into the group specified in the config but does not remove them from the group they are currently in.
  19. Offline


    it should. i execute the command to remove them from their old group. are you using the most recent version?

    i really dont know anything about that, i have never tried to use russian letters in my configs :p

    Thanks Im looking forward to that also. To be able to configure group from which we like to promote. Not only default.
  21. Offline


    Im using permissionsbukkit, and I am having the same issue. The player is moved virtually, but not physically. As soon as the player logs off, the server reloads, or the server restarts, they are virtually transferred back to the default group (they never physically leave the default group).

    Scratch that, i did a few weird things with my permissionsbukkit config, set the wrong group as default, lol

    TOdkommt so I figured out the root of the problem I was having above. You may want to look into making this plugin compatible with the service "McMyAdmin". McMyAdmin has a permissions UI that automatically updates the PermissionsBukkit config, but it clashes with ThumbsApply. Everytime a perm is added in the McMyAdmin UI, it makes all of the groups unrecognizable to ThumbsApply, rendering all groups as guests (except OP's). When they type "/apply password", it promotes them all to the specified group, not back to their previous group. If I uninstall ThumbsApply before they type the command then it restores their previous rank (since ThumbsApply is not able to override their rank when uninstalled :p).

    It seems like this is a problem with your plugin not being able to recognize the groups because; when McMyAdmin updates the perms, and all players become guests (according to your plugin) I look in the PermissionsBukkit config to see that they are still all listed as their previous group, and it isn't until they type the command that they are forced to join the specified group.

    [Before I add a permission in the McMyAdmin UI]
                - donator

    [After I add a permission in the McMyAdmin UI, but before I enter "/apply password" (at this point it says I'm a guest)]
                - donator
    [After I enter "/apply password"]
                - member

    I understand that you are most likely unable to do anything about this issue, seeing as it appears to be an update issue between McMyAdmin and PermissionsBukkit. I just thought I'd give you a heads up in case you are able to accomplish anything, and so that you could add a notice. Probably something like "Note: ThumbsApply2 is not compatible with the McMyAdmin permissions UI. If you are using McMyAdmin, you need to manually change and reload your permissions in your permission plugin's config.yml file."

    Could you implement bPermissions support?
  23. Offline


    unfortunately this is an issue that is not fixable from my side. im not using mcmyadmin anyway, if you can you should change to jsonapi and a php webinterface. jsonapi supports way more permissions systems and doesnt have this issue. also, it has all features for free and uses up less power (since the server start environment is only running while the server is stopped, not during server runtime).

    My server also uses this!

    I have a question, is it possible to use it for multiple groups?

    password 1 gives you group A after at least 3 minutes

    password 2 givers you group B after 4 weeks.

    Would be awesome to make possible!


  25. Offline


    Make the option so you can have multiple groups. For example:

    Guest>Member =30 days

    Member>Helper=60 days

    Helper>Builder=90 days

    Something like this. Would be awesome :D

    TOdkommt should put his plans about this in an FAQ section xD

    also TO, I figured out I could probably get away with using forum-based greylisting for buildrights and TA for autopromotion, but that doesn't seem very user friendly lol. Think i'll stick with simple groups and TA buildrights until you finish your new plugin :)
  27. Offline


    i thought it would be just a few that would request something like that, i will implement now in a more admin (and plugin) friendly way than the old edition of it :p the new one will have a infinite amount of groups that you can implement, ill start working on that right now but i already know how to do it =)

    This would be perfect. But I have these goups (per world):
    CreativeWorld ----> New, Creativebuilder, Admin
    SurvivalWorld ----> New, Survivor, Admin
    And I want to autopromote ''New'' to ''Survivor'' in the SurvivalWorld, and I want to autopromote ''New'' to ''Creativebuilder'' in the CreativeWorld.
    Do you get it?
    How can I do that?
    Please help if possible (if not, maybe a idea for the config for the next version)
