    Asking for help
    Please include the following in your post.
    server.log - With out the server log we can't really tell what error your getting, which plugin it might be from, where the error is in our plugin....

    Error message - Sometimes you might be getting more then one error. What error are you trying to fix? Also if the server log is missing or very long, this will help us locate it.

    Which permissions plugin your using. - We need to know if your using permissions or Group Manager. It might be an error specific to that plugin. Also both work very differently. The steps to fix one might be different then the steps to fix the other. Config files are different...

    Explain the problem - Simply posting it doesn't work doesn't help. We need what you were doing, what caused the error and other any information that could help.

    Messages
    Messages (open)

    Messages must be enclosed in ' ' or you will get errors. They support both colors and variables. Colors are done by using &<color>, such as &3 or &a. If you want to use a & in your message, place two of them. Example. 'He is a gentlemen && a scholar' would print out 'He is a gentlemen & a scholar'

    Here is a list of variables. All variables should be enclosed in < > and lower case
    Player
    player.name = Players name who has been promoted
    player.world = Current world the player is in

    Rank
    Follows pretty much the config names.
    rank.name = Name of the rank
    rank.group = New group person is getting promoted to
    rank.oldgroup = Old group the person was in
    rank.world = The world that group and oldgroup are a part of.
    rank.time = Amount of time in minutes it took to get this promotion
    rank.cost = The cost, money, or block id they used for this promotion
    rank.amount = The amount of money, or blocks, they paid
    rank.remove = If they were removed from the old group

    Ones you'll likely never use but are there...
    rank.broadcast = If this was broadcast to the whole server
    rank.msg = The raw msg before it is processed.

    Abilities
    Same as rank with the following changes
    There is no group or oldgroup.




    Commands
    Commands (open)

    Code:
    /playtime <player>
    will show how long a player has been playing for. This keeps track of time logged in to the server and playing.
    Permission node: timerank.playtime
    
    Code:
    /listranks [filter/page] [page]
    List all the ranks loaded and there costs and other information. Filter and page is optional. Filter can be time, buy, or rent. Adding a filter will only list the ranks with the selected information. Page can be used to limit the output to 5 at a time.
    Permission node: timerank.listranks
    
    Code:
    /buyrank <name>
    Will allow you to buy the rank with that name if you have enough to pay for it.
    Permission node: timerank.buyrank
    
    Code:
    /rentrank <name>
    Will allow you to rent the rank with that name if you have enough to pay for it.
    Permission node: timerank.rentrank
    
    Code:
    /timerank
    Show version number and other information
    
    /timerank reload
    Reloads config file
    
    /timerank groups
    List a lot of information on the loaded groups
    
    Permission node: timerank.timerank
    


    Current Bugs
    • None
    Planned features
    • Add in support for Permissions 2.7.x - May not happen. Doesn't have an API for managing groups. May have to edit the config files directly which is a very ugly way of doing it.
    • Reformat the listrank output to make it look better.
    • Make oldGroups a list instead of a single value. Make this list an OR list so they have to be in anyone of these groups, remove any that they are in.
    • Add in a use: section to limit the abilities to a number of uses instead of just buy/rent.
    Features I'm thinking about
    • Add an option so you have to visit a set place to get your rank advancement such as an alter or temple.
    • Come up with a better name to describe this since it now does more then just time. Maybe call it Ranker.I'm open to suggestions.
    • PermissionsEx support

    Updated GIT hub that fixed the null error, still looking into bpermission and pex support. If anyone wishes to take these updates over I am more then willing to work with someone and accept the changes.

    I would not exactly call out Superperms on its own as it is just an official API with hooks updated by bukkit, any plugins that claim to use Superperms will work with any permissions system currently supporting the Superperms API as that it why it was created in the first place so that we could still choose our proffered plugin for permissions to suit our layout and other tastes with out destroying compatibility or developers having to add support for yet another system.

    It's not perfect but I'm starting to come around to the fact it indeed a better alternative then 3 or 4 different systems that do not talk to each other.

    Looks like I'll look into SuperPerms. Looks like I"ll get the most compatibility from that first. Then I'll do PEX and bPermissions. I have Cub scouts tonight after work so I won't get a chance to work on it today but I should be able to get some work done on Thursday. Problem is I think I was half way though adding a feature and I don't remember what that feature was, lol. I am going to try very hard to have something working by and ready for release again by middle of next week. Hopefully the weekend, but I want to give myself a little extra time in case something comes up.

    Take your time bukkit does not even have a reco build for 1.8 and Notch forgot to implement SNOW biome in 1.8 so its going to be a LOONG wait.

    Yea if u do Superperms any other plugin using superperms will automatically work with this bukkit designed it that way as it was just an API for devs to hook into when making permission systems so any system used with it would work with any plugin using the API.

    Well 1.9 will be out soon and thus I'm finally making the move to 1.8 to ease the process of the permissions update thing that I put off for a long time. I think this is just going to have to be put away for a little while until its fixed.

    @xlilcasper Hey. I'm trying to release my server on Friday or Saturday. I need this plugin updated. It's working fine but when I set remove to true, it won't delete the old rank. It would be great if you could just update that part for me. :D

    EDIT: I'm using permissions, but I'll try GroupManager tomorrow. But I'm pretty sure it's only because the plugin is outdated. :(

    EDIT AGAIN: Here is my config:

    I plan on using PEX for my server's new permission system, just waiting for this to be updated. This plugin really helped my server out a lot it kept my admins from randomly promoting people. I wish you luck (and ease) in updating it to 1.9!

    I tried to set rentable group vip , plugin adds this group succesfully.
    Unfortunately when rent time runs out , the rentable group is not removed. Is it possible to make plugin works this way ?
    Every player get default group : Default
    After renting vip , the group : Default is removed.
    After defined period of time i see message nickname has lost the ability , but the group vip in permissions stays.
    How can i make it revert to group: Default ?

    I saw this one too, the downside is that I believe it will demote players if they aren't active... I know some of my regulars would hang me if they were demoted!:rolleyes:

    I *think* you can turn off that portion, but I'm not sure, the plugin info is a bit confusing. If not, just set the inactive time to like 2 years, then it shouldn't really be an issue :)

    Jakeob asked me to look at updating this - just throwing it out there but if I get it working, I'll add PEX support too as thats (in my opinion) a million times better than BukkitPerms...

    Since this plugin didn't seem to be going anywhere I sponsored one called TimedCommands which covers many of the same features as this plugin. Basically it lets you set commands to be run by the console based on player time. If you're using a permissions plugin with commands for promoting and demoting, like PEX, you can do time based promotions. (Plus a lot more).

    It would be great to see this updated to PEX.... as PEX is now the mainstream plugin over Permissions.
