    SimpleTips - Display Periodic Message (Tips) via Chat:
    Version: v1.2

    This is a simple plug-in that allows a server administrator to display periodic/recurring messages via chat. These messages can be hints, announcements or server rules.

    • Post messages to the server via chat
    • Rotate messages (as many or few as needed)
    • Set the delay between messages
    • Now supports color text!
    • Manage the list of tips using in-game commands
    • Permissions support
    • Optionally send a different set of messages to different groups of users.
    Download SimpleTips v1.2
    Source Code

    • Unzip into your plugins directory.
    • Edit file SimpleTips/config.yml to set the message list and delay between messages. That's it!
    Commands and Permissions:
    • /tip
      • Display a random tip.
    • /tip list
      • List all tips.
      • Permission: tip.list
    • /tip add [text]
      • Add a tip.
      • Permission: tip.add
    • /tip del [num]
      • Delete a tip. The number can found using the list command.
      • Permission: tip.del
    • /tip replace [num] [text]
      • Replace a tip with new text.
      • Permission: tip.replace

    This works awesomely on 1.2.4-R1. Dear author, could you please add a reload command? It would be REALLY helpful as I like my tips to be correctly arranged on the screen so I write the tip, see how it displays, then go back and modify it to look better. For example, if it takes 4 lines on the screen but the 4th line is just one word, I re-word it to make it 1 word shorter so it only takes 3 lines. Plus sometimes I mess up the color codes (lol) and have to restart the whole server to fix it. Thanks for an amazing plugin! :D

    Simple request, make the colour tags more greedy. They're super sensitive. Just merely allow lowercase colours. i.e %f doesn't work, but %F does.

    A reload command would be nice
