    WelcomeMe - The fast, custom welcome message plugin!

    This plugin makes it possible to display a welcome message to a player when they log on your server. This message can be customized with text colors and dynamic 'tags' which can be used to display the number of players online, maximum players and a list of players online.

    As i work with embedded device hardware and software development, i'm very focused on speed, which is why i made this plugin instead of using some of the already existing ones. This plugin stores the message in memory for fast retrieval when a player joins the server, causing as little lag as possible.

    How do i install?

    Install is very simple, just extract the zip file to your plugins folder.

    WelcomeMe has only been tested on Craftbukkit build 556, but should work on earlier builds as well as long as they support the new CommandExecutor.

    How do i format message.txt?

    You just write the text you want to display to the user. If you hit enter in your message.txt, it will also give a line break in the chat.

    There are currently 4 dynamic tags that you can use:
    1. %op - displays the numerical amount of players currently online on your server
    2. %mp - displays the numerical maximum number of players your server supports
    3. %pl - displays a comma separated list of online players names
    4. %np - displays the name of the player who logged in or issued the /wm command
    You can also format your text with standard color codes:


    To add a color, for example red, type &4 before the text you want to be red.

    Are there any commands?

    There are two commands for this plugin. First one is used to reload the message.txt file into memory if you change it while the server is running while the second one displays the message again.
    • /wm reload (requires that the player has server operator status)
    • /wm
    Does this plugin support permissions, iConomy, x, y, z...?

    No, this plugin was made to be fast and simple to use. It does not support nor depend on any other plugin to work.

    Could you show me an example of message.txt formatting?

    Yes of course!

    Posible add in an option to increese/decreese announcing speed?

    It goes verry fast so it might be annoying(had many complaints from players :p)

    Further, nice n easy, and heh a lil bit of bytes in the memmory wont lag at ALl if ur using a correct server (hosting it on a regular computer is dumb anyway).

    Cheers mate.

    sigh... offline since august 2011, working for CB 953... we are at 19xx... and people still ask if it can be fixed...

    sure... but you could also get another plugin to do it.... MessageChanger lite is one.. there are others

    md_5 could you make this inactive, not that it will help
