    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 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 enjoyed BigBrother and thought it was a great plugin. Thanks for the hard work and I understand people have to move on when they get wore out and don't get the support they need. I also respect you for recommending a replacement plugin.

    wait to read the log or what happened u get the log and punch an item or place

    Hey can you make the command for /bb log back to the old command? Like /bb stick 1 for the stick and /bb stick 2 for the log, it's kinda annoying that you got to get/spawn a log and type in /bb log while the old command you can type in /bb stick 2 and it'll replace the item you're holding into the history log and you can change it back to normal with /bb stick 0.
  5. Sorry i'm new at Minecraft/Bukkit, but i must make datebase or its not importent ?
    Anyways i complited my MySql and i opened the server and there i wanted to test it i written /bb help and nothing happened !?
    Please help

    You could do this very easily with HawkEye

    You still need MySQL for HawkEye

    Well, shit.
    Guess that's why it wasn't working.

    I actually saw HawkEye a few hours after I made this post and I have to admit it looks EXTREMELY promising. You bet I will be switching!

    No, I need to undo a change, and it wont let me and gives me that error. I cant switch until i get it back
  15. RIP BigBro, Never had a problem by staying 1 version behind, hopefully someone will come to revive BB.
    LogBlock sucks IMHO

    You never even typed out the command you were trying to use.

    HawkEye might appeal to you more than LogBlock

  19. Hmmm it good pretty good but even though MySQL may be better I still prefer H2 and its a pain to change commands etc, if BB shows no life in a week or two I might
  20. Offline


    H2 is great for plugins needing a database that do not store large amounts of data, but for something like this that can grow EXTREMELY fast H2 is -NOT- the way to go, as those kind of accesses are not intended for a flatfile

    The developer gave up on BigBrother, it won't be developed anymore, so I recommend you switch (More/better features anyways)

    Bigbrother, Log, Logblock and HawkEye devs should team up. Would solve a hell of a lot of problems.

    Not really - I dislike the way Bigbrother and log block do 99% of things.

    Fair enough, i'm all for competition.
  24. IMO I <3 how BB does things compared to everything else
  25. Offline


    Yes, the move to H2 over SQLite for the default DBMS was a terrible idea, and, if I were given a second chance, I would probably not do it again, instead opting to remove file-based DBMSes entirely and forcing users to use MySQL or Postgres, since they are able to handle the loads BB generates and don't have a lot of missing features.

    A couple of people have applied, waiting for them to respond to some questions now.

    Yo N3X15 add /bb here back I used that to check if somebody was greifing instead of following them around the whole world and by the way you misspelled greifing in your title :D also keep H2 I can run sql or sqllite so if your remove that people would enjoy it more if you kept all 3
  27. Offline


    I mean on a code-based level. In terms of user functionality there is nothing wrong with BB at all, but IMO the structure of BB at a class level is pretty messy.

    It did confuse me when H2 was made the BB standard :confused:

    Great plugin!
    any chance you could expand the description within your jar file to be a bit more robust than

    I would appreciate it soooooo much as my server uses an auto generated plugin info plugin to generate a list with descriptions of plugins. I would appreciate it so much if you could take the time to do this!
