    Memo - Really basic offline messaging
    Version 1.0 - Download JAR
    Required dependencies: OffLine

    A bit late but here it is - An input layer for players to send messages using OffLine, and it also doubles as the example plugin (see below for source code). If you want something more advanced for offline message handling (inboxes, outboxes, long-term message storage, etc.) I'm pretty sure there are a couple of other plugins, go look for them.

    • Allows players to send private messages to players who may be offline.
    • Very simple, absolutely no extras.
    • Uses my OffLine plugin for message delivery.
    Installation (open)


    Put Memo.jar and OffLine.jar in the plugins folder and restart/reload your server. That's all!

    How to use

    This plugin provides only one command.

    Sends a MESSAGE from you to user PLAYERNAME via OffLine. If the user is online he receives it immediately, otherwise it is stored for later delivery.​

    If you're the server owner you can change the message formatting string in config.yml (for example if you want to add colors). The default is:

    msg-format: '<%sender%> %msg%'

                if (args[0].equals(player.getName())) {
                    player.sendMessage("You're right there!");
                    return true;
                String message = args[1];
                for (int i = 2; i < args.length; i++) message = message + " " + args[i];
                msg(args[0], msgFormat.replace("%sender%", player.getName()).replace("%msg%", message));
                player.sendMessage("Message for " + args[0] + " sent.");
                dolog(player.getName() + " sent a message for " + args[0]);
                return true;
            return false;

    The first!

    Why not use /mail...

    Applebule: I'll leave /mail free for other plugins to use. Also, I think conceptually speaking a mail should be something you can keep in your inbox.

    On our server only ops can do this. What is the permissions for it?

    As you can see from the source code, everyone can use it; If it's being restricted it's another plugin doing it. Or one of the server owners modified the source code to filter out non-ops.
