    Plugin category: Admin Tools Anti-Griefing Tools
    What I want: It would be great if someone could continue or make a similar plugin like EasyBan. With this plugin you can ban griefers and other annoying people from your "offline" Server. To combat dynamic IPs EasyBan keeps track of players IP addresses and saves them into a file or database.
    The problem with EasyBan is that it is not updated anymore I needed to work for 1.2
    Ideas for commands: A quick cmd for example with this plugin you usually /eban name and it automatically bans all that player IPs

    When I'd like it by: I am not in a hurry i can wait

    The easy ban developer might be thinking of updating easyban but hasn't got around to it. But if easyban does not do what you have described above, I might take this...

    Before I start working on this:

    1. Are you positive the EasyBan plugin does not work with 1.2.3?
    2. Are you sure the EasyBan developer does not plan to ever update the plugin?

    If the answers to 1 and 2 are both yes, I will update the EasyBan plugin myself.

    This. Running in offline mode just allows for pirated clients to connect. Offline mode was good when minecraft.net used to act like a sine wave, but its more stable now so it isn't good for anything but piracy now. IMHO, Bukkit.org should not condone the use of offline mode and I'm quite sure the staff do not.

    Answers:
    1. No it doesn't work on 1.2.3 (I try to ban someone but nothing happens it just tells me the cmd)
    2. He hasn't updated since september 18 of 2011 and also I have send him messages and tried every way I could communicate with him but nothing
     
  8. I'm working hard to make sure EasyBan gets updated, keep an eye on the thread.

    yeah cause people don't all have MC ( but if we have EasyBan then we can see if there hackers or somone trying to play ) and it goes better with AuthPlayer cause then u can auth urself to more then 1 person can come on.

    Still back to the point WE ALL NEED EASYBAN

    Some people don't have internet or priemum ( that's y we need it ) becuase u never know ( THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED ON MY SERVER ) when a group of client hackers come on Ban u and all the Mods/admins from ur server take control of the console and grief as much as possible ( setting themself as admin/op )

    That's y we ALL need it. Cause this plugin detects client hackers and warns them

    p.s reminder This plugin is similla to NoPwnage exept this plugin covers more client hackers all NoPwnage does is if it picks up ANYTHING Suspiouse I'tl warn them ingame then if he trys to use somthing then he gets banned/kicked

    That's exactly what people have been saying. 'Not having' the game is just a lousy term for pirating the game. Everyone here understands exactly what you've been saying. We don't support these "offline" servers. There aren't any legitimate reasons, correct me if I'm wrong.

    'Hackers' also can not 'come onto your server and ban you', unless of course you're freely running your 'offline' server with no protection. Which is just all the more reason to use online-mode.

    (I realize "we" is relative and some people will disagree. I would sincerely enjoy seeing their arguments, however.)

    ^^^ besides if you cant afford the what ? 27 USD$ then you shouldnt even be worring about minecraft in the first place,

    again theres no dancing around "But we need an offline server" as your just saying " we've pirated minecraft and we wanna play now!"

    The Bukkit staff and many (if not most) others have expressed that they will in no way support offline servers. Simply put you shouldn't run your server in offline-mode if you have any sense of security or self-preservation.

    Also, if you can afford to run a server (a good one) then you can definitely afford minecraft.
