    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

  2. Hi,

    I have one idea for the plugin;

    - Is it possible to let the plugin automaticly broadcast an message every 5 minutes to all players which haven't done the password thing yet?

    that must be a problem with your server. apparently the commandsender is null, but my code just uses the one bukkit gives me, which means bukkit gives an empty commandsender to my plugin which means something must be broken. at least as far as i can tell. i checked the code but nothing is wrong, and in my tests i never had that issue.

    edit: yep, just went through the entire process and the CommandSender that is null is definately the one bukkit gave me. so you should fix your bukkit :p

    Well, from this error could you tell me whats wrong with my server?
  6. Offline


    unfortunately not. all i know that your server doesnt give me the commandsender for some reason. if you use a dev build, maybe try it with a recommended one. or check if all your plugins are up to date.

    Nothing unusual? Could it be something i haven't done?

  13. Offline


    first off, you should delete the Mod: %1000 from the config. second, you need to put your group name (in this case Member as i can tell from your post) instead of User, like so: "Member: build". if that still doesnt work, please post a log from the moment when you enter the password.

    where do i put the password? i am confused... -.-

    I'd really love to see a feature that would allow promotions through signs, just like this plugin did before it was discontinued :)

    Then you could kind of "force" players into completing a quick turtorial, before they could click the sign and get promoted.

    Hi, I tried to get it working last night but it does not work, when a player writes /apply 12345 (12345 being the password) a text appears that he has been promoted to "Newbie" (which is the next rank) successfully, but he is still a Guest.
    Also, there is no welcome message...

    Please help, I don't understand what I am doing wrong...

    AHA! I got it working now, I just misspelled my world name in the config file... silly me, BUT, I still cant get the welcome message to show for some reason even though I have it enabled in the config....

    the join message is a bit bugged right now.

    I feel like I should know by now that you'd make a big deal about it if it did so, but I only just now considered this, since the plugin doesn't seem to keep track of promotions anymore (I have a stubborn admin who uses /apply to demote himself to player whenever I add a donator symbol to his name), and by my understanding of the world-group feature a person can be set to be set to a certain group in a certain world regardless of what world they are currently in. Under those conditions, does this mean that it is now possible to set conditions for multiple promotions?
  26. Offline


    you probably havent given the group.<groupname> permissions to your groups, e.g. group.Mod to the group Mod etc.

    And yes you can set conditions for multiple promotions, in the default config there is an example for promoting a guest to User after entering a password, and to Mod after being online for 1000 minutes.

    I'm using groupmanager so I didn't think I needed that, but I'll give it a try, thanks!

    Thank you thank you thank you! :D is happier than ever to be using this

    its needed in all permissions plugins, I just generalized that to make it more convenient.
