    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.)

    I'm using permissions 2.7.4, and for some reason, any time i use the stick, log, or bb here, it will rarely tell me what happened.

    If you want, I can attach one or more of the big brother databases. Also why is bigbrother.h2.db 3,201,024 bytes, when it only contains 3 lines of text?

    It would be nice if there was a BB stats extension that we could use to display player information to our website. We currently have to log every block twice to achieve this.

    I am setting up MySQL for bigbrother using your instructions on github, and the first step is fine. Which is download and install MySQL. The second step says, "Next, use mysqladmin -u root password NEW_STRONG_PASSWORD. It is recommended to use a good, long, strong password. THIS IS YOUR ADMINISTRATIVE ACCOUNT, DO NOT USE IT FOR BIGBROTHER OR ANY OTHER PROGRAM." When I put this in terminal on Mac OSX, it says, "-bash: mysqladmin: command not found" Can you give me any help? I know this isn't the place for MySQL help, but I cannot find anywhere else that will help me for a Mac. PLEASE HELP ME!!!

    @N3X15 Could you make it so it splits a block history into pages (like 1 out of 2) when the history is longer than the screen please?

    what's the permission node for /bb mowlawn?
  22. Offline


    BigBrother simply clears out old entries after a configured time or certain amount of entries.

    BB has two settings, the default max age of 3 days, and a limit of a whole bunch of entries. You can change those if you like. But yes, BB removing old entries is normal, or else your database would possibly grow too large.

    What happened to BigBrother lately? I used this before 1.6 and it was my right hand. Recently the updates have royally screwed over my server hard (that's because it was the last thing I checked and never thought it was BigBrother and took quite a while to figure out that it was the issue). What happens is that it randomly lags and then sockets the whole server. After that it will refuse connection to anyone for a good solid 10-20 minutes or longer. The server will also refuse any resets or stops unless it is forced or a manual restart by terminating the server its self. Bigbrother works when it isn't crashing the server. There are no error logs besides the null at the beginning of starting the server. It is set up correctly with the latest Bukkit and latest BigBrother jar. I even isolated BigBrother as the only plugin installed.

    It was interesting to see that when I uninstalled bigbrother for 3 days, I got no lag, no crashes, and no refusing to connect. Then I tested out 860 to find if it was fixed or not. 3 minutes in I got crippling lag. Then a few minutes after that the server kicked everyone off and displayed CONSOLE: Read timed out. When that happened no one could log in until I forced the server to stop. Telling it to stop or restart in the console was a joke. It would be on an endless loop.

    I'm not the only one having this issue. My host provider claims to have many customers complaining about the same thing. I can work with you directly and use my server as a guinea pig if need be. It is very easy to replicate this issue and would like to help you solve it as its a very important plugin for me to run my server.

    Those commands are supposedly supposed to allow you to select players for BB to logs actions for or ignore.

    Unfortunately on my server /bb watch and /bb unwatched seem to be completely broken. I can't get it to stop watching me, or anyone else for that matter. /bb watch [Player] doesn't toggle like it used to, but just says "now watching [Player]." /bb unwatch isn't a recognized command. /bb unwatched simply lists everyone online, but it's watching them anyway.

    I really would like to actually get BB to stop watching trusted players to save db entries. Please let me know if these features are broken or if there's something wrong with my config. Thanks.

    Is there a way to use BB to see what items were taken out a chest and who took them out? Thank you
  26. Offline


    I am having similar issues on my server. Read Timed Out's every 30min to an hour. When the server crashes it crashes hard. I cannot do anything until the server starts responding again. I never pin pointed the plugin causing the issue. Unfortunately BigBrother is a plugin my server cannot do without and I will have to wait through these time outs.
  27. Offline


    That should be working (again) since some somewhat recent version. Though using the /bb stick 1 on a chest only shows who has accessed it, you can see the actual changes/replacements in the database or the flatfiles inside plugins/BigBrother/logs/ .

    Whats the deal with downloading something to my PC when first running Bigbrother? Sounds like a weird website to me.
  29. Offline


    Those are the database drivers. They used to download from tkelly's site, but it went down. The warning was due to an exploit back in march that put a bunch of javascript on 7chan's front page. It's been resolved.

    I've been trying to nail this down for ages. If your hosting provider has any details as to why this happens, I would love to get this bug fixed. It happened only after we moved to a seperate user table in the database. Might be too much crap being downloaded from the server or an overly-long join, but I can't tell for certain.

    Also sorry guys, busy gearing up for finals next week, plus a final project. I might not respond for a while.

    Great plugin although I have a query. I was using the log tool to see who had accessed a chest, but the logs would not all fit on the screen, so I could not see far back enough to find what I wanted. Is there a way to list certain users for chests, or to ignore users from being listed.

    Aw...N3X batch answered a bunch of people, but not me. :(
