    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 by Moderator: Redacted mediafire url>
    ^ Here is a link to BigBrother version 1.9.1 (#581). It is fully compatible with Bukkit 1.8.1 (CB 1317). I am currently using it on my server and there are no problems at all.
    If you need permission nodes, find them here:

    and that really help us all out :p Details would be nice, like Bukkit build, BB build any console errors and such, Mysql databse setup config file ?? ANYTHING AT ALL is better than /bb DOESNY WORK
  13. Offline


    well it says exactly NOTHING in the log, chat or console. litterally, NOTHING.
  14. This works! I have no problems... If it says something about a system missing just restart server and it will work!


    I believe using the bb commands in the console won't work

    I will try to start working on a new build tomorrow.
    This plugin scares me though.

    If you look for my previous post on the last page I have a link to a previous build (build 1000) that uses the H2 database and I am using it with no probs on the latest RB of Bukit

    As a side not you do realise "Guardian" will be coming out in the near future but as I read it will still only use MySQL :(

    "Please rename Bigbrother.example.yml to Bigbrother.yml..."

    What if i have another bigbrother.yml inside the file? :s
  21. Offline


    2 files are generated when you first run BB, BigBrother.yml and BigBrother.Example.yml, you fill out the example one and overwrite the Bigbrother.yml with the example one, ie; once you configure example.yml ctrl+a, ctrl+c then open BigBrother.yml ctrl+a, ctrl+v, save your new Bigbrother file and upload and replace the one on your server. All done

    Will this plugin be available on my server hosted by Multiplay anytime soon. Unfortunately we have some sneaky users who like tnt. Will help any future "accidents"
  23. Offline


    I just looked up your host and by the looks either they or more importantly YOU can upload you own plugins via an FTP client, as to your host having it its up to you to ask them to make it available if they offer that type of option. Plugin developers only develop the plugins for us to use, it is not up to them to install it on providers or personal servers thats up to US. I hope this helps, oh btw if you are using an FTP client remember to place the .jar file and or folder into the PLUGINS folder on your server. Hope this helps

    Oh, must have missed that bit in the options, hah. Thanks anyway btw.

    I can't see who edited any blocks, it always says no edits, even though I watch them get placed. I am currently using bukkit b1317, with BigBrother #581. It also errors when I use /bb undo, but I can do everything else including rollbacks.
  26. Offline


    Have you enabled block place and destroy in your config file ? and are you using /bb log or /bb stick ?
  27. Offline


    I have worked on my server for the past year and i now have a lot of time on my hands as the server runs almost all on its own. I am interested in testing out new versions on my server as i use this plugin all the time. I will also do the wiki page and instructions if you like.

    Hello, I read in the wiki that I need the BigBrother folder to get BigBrother.yml
    How can I get the zip file, I just find the Jar file ?

    Good Luck for Guardian. ;)

    Hey.. I had a user griefing so I did a /bb rollback username. Fixed all the dmg. A day or two later, he wants to know why he was banned. I was going to send a screen shot showing me hitting one of the griefed areas with the log, but it says "no edits on this block". I assume that's because I rolled it back. I can, however, do a SELECT statement in MySQL and see all the grief - yet BB isn't showing it ingame.

    Is there a way to get BB to actually report that with the log?

    Bukkit RB #1337 Fixed build (should work on older/newer builds, simply compiled against 1337)
    Based on Bigbrother 1.11.0-SNAPSHOT
    Enjoy :D (fixed it myself, hope it doesn't blow up)

    This is nearly the same as 1.11.0, except it logs the new 1.8 items. It also is 1.9-ready, as it CAN log the item IDs for things such as End Portals, White Stone, and Nether warts.

    (The whole "You already have a log, you doofus" bug is fixed, and some other errors are fixed)
