    i was looking in my plugin folder and saw a folder named pluginmetrics with just a config file in it with a short bit of text
    ------
    # http://metrics.griefcraft.com
    opt-out: false
    guid: [randomnumbers and letters]
    ------

    Looks like it could be for DeadBolt/LWC. Do you have either of those plugins?

    no never installed either

    the latest plugin i added was morematerials from the spout.org place
     
  4. MoreMaterials uses metrics.griefcraft.com, so it created the folder.
     
  5. It's just a system for plugin devs to measure how many people are currently using their plugin. All plugins listed on http://metrics.griefcraft.com will create this folder.

    It is plugin metrics by the Maker of LWC. Many plugins includign LWC, Vault, and MoreMaterials all use it to send usage data to a server in order to see detailed stats on how many people are using their plugins.
    it doesn't hurt anything, but if you don't want to send your data, change opt-out to true.
