    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.)

    So you said you were testing Big Brother on Build 953. How did it turn out?

    I have found bigbrother to cause serious lag to my server. It used to work fine, however now, whenever i do the '/bb here' function it will lag the server for up to a minute. Should I flush the database or something?

    Well obviously ok, otherwise he woulda said something. Smoke tests passes... as in, it works so far...

    Looks to me like it isn't communicating with your SQL server. User error, not a plugin error.

    Well my server runs for about 6 hours without this happenening then it happens! :(
  9. Offline


    Your SQL server has probably crashed
  10. I love this plugin. However, sometimes it doesn't hold the history of a block edit after so much time.

    I haven't narrowed down how long it saves the history for, but could you tell me how to keep the history longer?

    Take a look at your configuration file. By default it deletes records older than 7 days

    On the contrary, this does appear to be a plugin issue.

    I've also had this issue since Build 503+ of BigBrother.

    Something was changed with how connections are handled and they now fail very commonly. I've had to move to the H2 storage engine to get around it for now.

    I'm guessing it has something to do with a mix of connection pooling in the JDBC driver and many configurations have short wait_timeout and interactive_timeouts. An exception that's being thrown is not being handled well here. These errors should not exist - if this connection exception is captured, it should re-attempt to close all connections and then open a new one.

    Persistent DB connections are shit and should never be used.

    Does BigBrother work with MAMP on a Mac?​

    how come rolling back chests contents is so janky?

    I have been testing it and like, if I rollback a chest with 1 sand in it, it puts 15 sand in it! and random things like that.
  20. Offline


    chests are unbelievably buggy dude. i agree

    Is this being updated soon? Since 950, rollbacks have no functioned. It still logs and bb's stick feature works, but /bb rollback = "nothing to roll back"

    Old records for players action dissapears after some time, I guess. How can I delay removing records or off removing generally?
  25. Offline


    By Default in my config file BigBrother.yml there is a section called Cleanser that looks like this:
            age: 7d
    that 7d is the number of days it will keep in the database, if you want more change it to a higher number, just be aware that the more transactions you keep the bigger the database will get.

    Nice :) how long is your retention and how many users do you have?

    I just installed this last night and so I'm curious to know how big my database will get. You're using mysql too I'm assuming?

    MySQL, thats about... 4-5 Months of 10-20 players on average.

    Thanks so much for this plugin! Got MySQL working using WampServer and all, but BB is finally on! A griefer totally destroyed this guys home, and I thought I'd have to rollback every block 1x1. Then I did name and radius. Amazing, truly amazing. Great job on the plugin! There's a bug with the signs but I'll post it in the BugTracker.

    That's a user error and a retarded attitude to take.

    It works fine. You, on the other hand, fail.
