    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.)

    Everyone with these kinds of errors, please report them on the bug tracker and upload your configuration/logs. I'm gonna try to catch some sleep, and then I'll attack these problems again.

    Great you're not giving up!
    And well, it seems like the console get spammed by errors, when someone chats(same errors as above).
    But everything still logs.

    Doesn't work for either MySQL och H2.

    The only problem is it's lagging so badly because of the spam.

    But how do we get to see this line "{11:44:+32:2:2 ; ... }" ? I couldn't find the information on the wiki.
    Thanks !

    is there any way to make /bb stick not give you any items? so that the person who uses /bb stick needs to bring their own stick. also is there a way to enable /bb stick by default? so that new players can just come on to my server pick up a stick and right click the ground to check the log?

    I am using CraftBukkit: #818 Bukkit: #704 and the plug-in runs with no errors, but /bb stick or log do not seem to be working. I am using permissions 3.1.2

    That doesn't make any sense at all. You should be thankful that someone is making the effort to update this.

    About the bug tracker: I tried to register an account, and it gave me a temporary password to use, but I accidentally clicked outside of the window and the password was gone. It wasn't even sent to my email. It was gone. I had to register another account just to post my bug. At least it accepted the same email. :p

    But yeah, my bug about the latest RB being able to read but not write to my h2 database has been posted.

    Yeah im thankful, but everyone still wants a bug free plugin.

    Thanks, sorry, Nexis. I didn't know it was known, haha.

    What makes you believe that a brand new codebase wouldn't encounter all of the same problems? It seems that the current major issue most people are facing is integration with the latest version of Permissions, which is seeing problems exactly like a lot of other mods.

    Take a close look at to see what the "team" (i.e. N3) has to deal with and the amount of time he has given to trying to get everything working for us. "P3" refers to Permissions version 3, I believe.

    BTW, the latest workaround is to revert to Permissions 2.7.4 (see original post). Can anybody confirm that P2.7.4 plays nicely with Minecraft Beta 1.6.6?

    Anyone wanna upload the build for 818 for me? I can't seem to connect to the download link when I try, and this is the last plugin I need to be able to update :(

    Yeah I also need this plugin and now is just a really unfortunate time to try and get it. if anyone out there can just post it to something like media fire it would be greatly appreciated!!

    This plugin would make a lot more sense using SQLite since it wouldn't require novice admins to have mysql installed.

    Starting getting this today after a good week of no errors. What does this mean? I haven't updated yet because the link is broken/down. Thanks for the great plugin and work.

    So when I try to rollback just a few minutes of what someone has done it rolls back a LOT farther, any ideas why?

    BigBrother don't log Glass break und Glowstone break, Glass and Glowstone place working perfectly.

    Yes, 2.7.4 works just perfectly and without problems with any plugin.

    I'm getting this as well after I updated. It starts after few hours and then just spams the console with the stuff over and over again.
    Looking at my database the stuff it sends there is just a mess and I doubt I can roll back if someone tries to grief my server.

    Rename your BigBrother.yml and let it generate a new one. Now insert the info from your old yml there. Fixed it for me.

    I've been getting this when reloading using CB 820 and BB build 461:
