    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.)

    **EDIT-Nevermind. I re-did everything and it appears to be working fine now. Thanks.

    Alright. Well I set up the MySQL database as per the instructions. Obviously I couldnt use 'minecraft' as my database name because that was already taken. I chose to name it minecraft333. Now I put this database name in the config file for big brother and filled out every other part according to the instructions. Loaded it all up and restarted the server. I laid down some blocks and tried to roll them back and nothing happened. No messages, nothing. I logged in to the MySQL database and when going into the 'minecraft333' database that i created, there are no tables in there. It appears as though its not logging. What should I be looking at to see if I missed something?

    BB Does not even start up here can i get any help ?

        port: 3306
        username: ''
        prefix: ''
        hostname: ''
            age: 7d
            deletes-per-operation: 20000
    Can someone tell me specifically what the deletes-per-operation variable does? Does it control how many DB entries get cleared after the age goes beyond (in this case) 7 days?

    Also, what controls the timing on the cleanser? Is there a variable that controls how often it checks to see if entries are over 7 days?

    I'm seeing this message in the console:

    2011-08-26 15:13:28 [INFO] [BBROTHER] Removed 38295 old records because of age in 0h00m47s.

    And then 60-70% of the server population drops and has to reconnect. This happens semi-frequently. Would lowering the deletes-per-operation fix the client dropping issue? As it is now, it seems the server effectively overloads while BB is removing records like that...

    Also, if that is what deletes-per-operation is for, why is it that it still removes 38000+ records, when it's only supposed to be doing 20k at any one time?

    The link going to the Permissions nodes is messed up. All I see is code and links to gibberish sites.

    I personally would have liked to have known that prior to the end of the plugin.

    Almost each time I use /bb log it's say "no block edit ....". It's like if it's reseted each time I reboot or something. I'm using default config.

    Anyone know what is happening?? :(

    Oh, I just read that BB have a lot of bug? Ok, i'll try to find something else then.

    A future feature that may be good to add in is an inactive logger. Anyone that is deemed to be inactive by a configurable time could be flagged for complete rollback, likewise it could be rolled back automatically

    Just wanted to thank for keeping this plugin alive.
    I'm running build #683 and I'm not noticing any errors. Only lava/water flows aren't being rollbacked properly, but apart from that it seems good
  27. Offline


    Can you add H2 again or replace it with SQLite? It was the best solution for me... please...
  28. Offline


    Really? 683? Go update, you're almost 400 builds behind.

    Here's a quick little tutorial on how to use the basics of the plugin. I hope you enjoy the video (it was meant for my moderators but I think that anyone who wants to learn more about the basics can use this video).

    This was my plugin of choice for the longest time! So useful! So many features! Thanks for an amazing plugin!! Unfortunately I used H2 and dont really want to switch to MySQL... Ill find something else i guess. Anyways thanks so much for this plugin! :D
