    WhoPlacedIt - Simple Plugin to see who placed and deleted a block:
    Version: v0.5
    This plugin enables players to see who placed a block or deleted it.

    It's now also available on Bukkitdev http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/whoplacedit/

    Usage: Just right click on any block that was placed after this plugin was installed to see who did it. This can be restricted to certain items the user has to hold in his hands at the time of the right click (default setting is that it only works when a stick is held in the users hands). Per default a player can see the last 3 remove/place actions for that block, this can be disabled in the config.

    Currently this plugin uses sqlite or mysql to store its data. The Library provided by alta189 is used for this purpose

    The config file for this plugin (WhoPlacedIt/WhoPlacedIt.properties) will be created automatically at first start with sqlite as default database setting, enabled history and restricted to sticks. If you want create your own properties file you can either do this by hand, or with this little script: http://hikinggrass.de/whoplacedit/index.php
    • Tracks when a player places a block and when this block is removed later
    • Tracks fire since version 0.4
    • Tracks what kind of block you placed/deleted since version 0.5
    • Has permissions support (tested with permissionsBukkit), whoplacedit.magicstick is the only permission that can be used to enable/disable the "magic stick"
    • You can configure how many block changes you want to see when you right click on a block. The amount can be set via the historyEntries option in the config file
    Download | Source Code

    I have to say, nice plugin, certainly useful and small in size.

    For all users with the same problem:
    Use the link he provided to make your own properties file. One is not generated with the plugin, so you have to make one yourself, as soon as this is done it seemingly stops. I only noticed after I went into the WhoPlacedIt plugin folder and only saw the database file there.

    Could you possibly think about a little color options in the next update?
    When looking at the history its all green text. While this is not a problem, it would be easier to read if block placements were green but block destroy was Red :p

    Another future update would be to record destroyed blocks through tnt. You could check the empty space by placing a block inside then hitting it to see who ignited the tnt which did this. Could be tricky I know but it would certainly be useful - same for whoever lit a fire and had it spread.

    Apart from that, nice work! Keep on top of those bugs.

    Nice plugin but, can you also make it that only the admins can see who placed a block?

    Long time no see Hikinggrass. You will notice that this thread has now been placed into the Inactive Plugin subforum.
    If you wish to revive this plugin, please ensure that you update and test compatibility with the latest recommended Bukkit build before reporting your original post, asking for it to be moved back to the release forum.

    Thanks for your time.
