    Important Crap

    I'm done, but BB isn't.
    I've got 10 developers on the contributors' list who supposedly want to help, but I haven't heard a word from them since the day I added them. BigBrother's so full of bugs now that I don't know where to start, and I simply don't have the time or patience to work on it anymore. If you want something that works, pick up LogBlock. I'm fucking done. I updated it to "run" on 1060, but that's as far as I'm taking this. If you still want to help, email me at [email protected] and give me a rundown of your experience in coding plugins so I know you'll do something.​
    UPDATE: 3 developers have been added to the repo, but I'm waiting for them to get familiarized and start committing before I declare this crisis over. I appreciate the support and help that has been thrown this way. If you'd still like to help, but don't know how to code, there are many other ways to contribute. See the Contributors section for more info.​

    BigBrother is a powerful plugin that enables you to investigate roll back griefing via a large and all-knowing database. You have a choice between using immensely powerful commands to search an area for changes, or you can whack a block with a stick or place a log to see changes within a single block.

    • /bb log - Gives you the BigBrother Multipurpose Tool, or a simple log. Hit something with it to see changes in that spot, and place it if the block you're check is non-solid, like water, lava or air.
    • /bb done - Removes the log from your inventory, and gives you back any items it replaced.
    • Want to check an entire area? Use /bb here to list who changed what!
    • Need to roll back EvilGuy and DoucheBug's edits? Use /bb rollback EvilGuy DoucheBug!
      • Have to roll back edits up to 5 minutes ago? Simple! /bb rollback t:5m
      • Need to only roll back within a certain radius? /bb rollback r:<radius-in-blocks>
      • Roll back specific actions with /bb rollback a:10,BLOCK_PLACE
    • If you screw up, /bb undo
    • (NEW) /bb history "Suspicious Guy" to see that player's recent history! (add pg:# to go to page #)
    • Mow your lawn with /bb mowlawn!
    See the full list of commands and Permissions nodes here.


    [​IMG](Yes, stationary_* and regular blocks got reversed, this is fixed.)​

    Need Help?

    • What version of CraftBukkit and BigBrother? If you don't know, type /version and /bb version.
    • What database engine are you using? Look at the value for database.type in BigBrother.yml. I use MySQL on my server and test on H2.
    • Do you get any errors? If so, please link to a pastebin with your server.log
    • What steps do I have to take to reproduce this behavior?
    • What other plugins are you using?
    Known Issues
    • Everything listed here
    • ItemCraft is not supported due to it sending unexpected NULLs via Block.getType(). Can be fixed by adding a new enum value for unknown blocks.
    • Bugs everywhere, stopped counting.
    Coming Soon
    • /bb history - Gets the history of a player
    • Fixed /bb update
    • Updated API
    • Externally accessible API
    • Custom Action IDs (for WorldEdit support, etc.)

    I would like to, once again alongside other people above me, redirect you back to the OP so you can read completely and see that this plugin IS BROKEN. Shattered. Destroyed. Incinerated. Not only that, the guy, as said above, hasnt been on in an ETERNITY. He may have moved on. But, until then, stop asking about your perms, because they dont matter. Dont post your bugs / errors, we have seen them, and it helps no one. Please stop posting about bugs, errors, or pleads for updating. It wont happen. Thank you...

    hi can you update diss ti 1.8.1 i need plugins inn 1.8.1 im host minecraft from pleas can you answers me
  5. Offline


    Great plugin, but can you also add ways to disable logging of command? I run a offline server and I don't want moderators seeing everyones /login from the xAuth plugin. Other then that I think this plugin is one of the best anti-grief bukkit plugins!:)

    Plugin Is Dead

    The author has NOT been on since Sept 3, 2011

    It would be much appreciated that everyone asking for updates to stop wasting their own time. It's not going to happen.

    Either use LogBlock or attempt working with what you got.

    @Mods/Admins of the forum. Please lock this thread. It's obvious that anyone that doesn't read this post will continue to spam this thread.

    Wow, This is a very complicated plugin.
    I may ( MAY ) take this over, It looks like it would consume so much time however.
    This is a very good plugin and i do not wish for it to die, but damn.
    If anyone would be intrested in taking this plugin over with me, PM me.
    As i do not know if i could do it alone. This is a great plugin and can get better, but i do not have all the time to do it alone, so please if you are interested PM me. Even if no one else helps, i will still try and get an updated dev build out (MAYBE )

    If you glanced at the main post and two posts above yours, you would know why you are wasting your time:

    It would be greatly appreciated that you did, or at least someone did. I really enjoyed this plugin, I didn't do anything fancy with it, heck, I wasn't even pushing it that hard for my semi-active 10slot server. The most we did with it was help people that were stressed out and let them blow stuff up, then just repaired it after they were done. lol

    Oh, well from the quote, "I'm done, but BigBrother isn't."
    Does that mean it will be updated?

    Can someone help me set up the database part of BB.
  15. Offline


    Ok. I will take this over.
    Give me some time before i can get a dev build out, Its not as complicated as i had thought, but the sheer amount of code that there is, scares me.

    I may regret this, but ill give it a shot.
    (i will make it use H2 and MySQL since i like H2 better) (ILL TRY)

    Sorry if this is a big noob issue.
    I'm using bukkit#1185 and bb v1.8.
    I have a MySQL database set up on another host, and I've filled in the BigBrother.yml appropriately.
    In-game, it shows I have access to /bb commands, but it won't actually work.
    Whenever I type in /bb [anything here], nothing is prompted. No errors, no message - nothing.
    I'm wondering if there are know plugins that conflict, or if there's a way to find out if it's not connecting to the DB properly.

    Other plugins: chatcensor, essentials, jail, lwc, mapmarkers, myhome, permissons, pvpplus, safe creeper, tombstone, and worldedit
