Our first custom plugin! Built by yours truly. :p

CraftXen's goal is to engage our players on the forum more, while it's a basic plugin, it'll help our players know what's new without having to find out themselves.

Features
For right now, it's simple. When someone makes a post in a non-excluded forum, it'll alert everyone on the server in a broadcast style message. It'll show the title of the post, and a button you can click to view the post.

Note: If you're afraid this will get spammy, all it takes is a simple adjustment to the plugin to prevent spam, but I don't think it'll get that bad.

Plans/To Do
  • Better Integration - I'd love to truly make this into THE forum plugin, with tools for us admins and players alike.
  • Player Ignore Option - A player can ignore announcements from a specific forum or completely mute the forum announcer plugin.
  • Recent Forum Posts - Sending the player a list of recent threads.
  • More information - Which forum it's posted in and if it's a post or a new thread.
  • Points & Awards System - The more you post, the more points you'll get, after X amount of points, you'll earn an award.
  • Scoreboard - Idea for above.
  • Faster sign-up process: Sign up on the forums with just a command.
  • Put on Spigot - My end goal is to put it on Spigot and sell it via Premium, with all sells going to the server, helping us grow.
Version: 0.0.1 - The plugin is still in alpha phase, and currently on the server. Hopefully it doesn't break!

Thoughts / Bugs:

If you've found a bug with this plugin or you'd like to post a suggestion or just share your thoughts, please do here!

Status: Offline - Forum upgrade broke this plugin. Maybe we can have it again sometime soon!

Thanks!

------------------------------- Changelog -------------------------------

  • 6/03/2017 - I made some quick fixes and enabled it back on the server. Enjoy the spam!
  • 6/03/2017 - Currently disabled while I'm rewriting the plugin. It'll be back soon!
  • 3/29/2017 - Fixed newline color bug, removed newline from border, character limit for message is now 140. Oh and [Forum] is now clickable.

If this promotes forum use, I do see spam becoming an issue eventually and would like to see an option to toggle the plugin per-player and it save that setting. It's something I wish the auction plugin had for /auc ignore.

We should bring this back. With the new reset, I havent seen it anymore!
I had to put it aside while we focus on the new server, it'll be back soon enough though, I miss it myself!

Currently rewriting the plugin before I bring it back, cause I'm a perfectionist. Sigh.
