    Log - A lightweight alternative to BigBrother.
    Version: v0.8.2
    NOTE: Users have reported problems using GroupManager.

    Log is a plugin that logs block changes. Currently it only records break and place events.
    Being the Bukkit plugin creator n00b I am, I probably made some n00bish mistakes, but it works, anyway.
    Compatible with 617 onwards. Latest build officially tested on 1597.

    • Logs block place and destroy events
    • Lets you look up block place and destroy events using a stick
    • Permissions support
    • Block type/material logging - NEW IN 0.4
    • A block to check air and other non-clickable blocks - NEW IN 0.8.2, now works!
    • PLANNED: Auto-delete support - prevent buildup of old stuff
    • POSSIBLE: Rollback?
    • Plaintext buffered SQL alternative to prevent memory leaks - NEW IN 0.5
    How to use:

    How to use (open)

    • 1) Install.
    • 2) Ensure you have the correct permissions (see below)
    • 3) Right click block with stick. DING!
    • 4) If you want to check who destroyed a block, place a block there and right-click that.
      • 4a) Alternatively, "place" a bone where the block would be.
    • 5) To clean the database of all old entries, type '/log clean <time>', replacing <time> with a time unit (15m, 24h, 30d)
    • 6) To completely purge the database of all entries (when you start a new world or something), type '/log purge'

    Permissions (open)

    • To use the stick lookup, you must have the 'log.stick' permission, or be an op.
    • To use the bone lookup, you must have the 'log.bone' permission, or be an op.
    • A 'log.*' permission is provided for your convenience.

    Admin Permissions:
    Admin Permissions (open)

    This plugin's simplicity is amazing. I would love to see it updated. I gave all of my server's regulars the ability to use the stick and bad-people placing blocks they shouldn't place were being caught left and right.

  4. im not trying to be another one of those guys, but could you please update this plugin. i dont know how to work mySQL or i would use logblock or whatever. you are my only hope. :)

    For all of you that want this plugin to be 'updated', I checked the source and well... here is your 'updated' version (no new features, just one small fix):

    I will contact pokepal and ask him if I can take over.

    it's true that this is inactive.
    i have exams. and sickness.
    but it works on the latest build (if you do everything properly).
    the + was simply to indicate that all builds from 617 onwards are compatible with a version of the plugin.

    So can I maintain it?
  10. Offline


    well... you can take the source and modify it, and PM me the updates and i'll put them in the post (acknowledging you of course)
    exams are over in a week or so anyway, and i'll be able to update this again.

    I plan to work on it a bit as soon as I can get a decompiled version of iffa's update (I want to see the "fix").
  12. Offline


    Finally updated!
    Version is 0.5 and it's a big update!
    We have eliminated the problem with memory leaks AND (partially) the bug where data is not saved if the server shuts down suddenly!

    It means you have helped my find a bug. Just create an empty file in the bin folder of the server called 'logdata.db2' for now.

    so what is different about it ?

    comparing to BigBrother?
    im interested
  18. Offline


    You've obviously haven't used BigBrother or Log. Read the first post!

    Basically Log only logs block breaks and placement and is a lot faster and smaller and doesn't have chest logging, rollback, etc.
  19. Offline


    (clears throat) err, it does log block placements as well...

    chest logging, rollback and etc will come... soon...
  20. Offline


    Yeah I forgot about that :p

    I personally don't want anything but placement and break logging. Remember the lightweight part?
  21. Offline


    please add setting.
    • ignore group=Admins,level2
    • Separate log for each day.(Please if possible.)
  22. Offline


    I was thinking about adding a separate permission (log.ignore) which ignores block changes, but decided against it.
    It might come later.
    The second option might also come later. If it's fine to just delete old log entries, setting the 'clear' log after setting to 1 day might work (when I add that option).

    Thank you !
  24. Offline


    Additional features would you like. Sorry many times.
    Can reduce the storage space in the log by this.
    • To log only when the block was installed.
    • To log only when the block broke.
  25. Offline


    ok thanks
  26. Offline


    I'm not sure what you mean, but if you mean what I think you mean, then the plugin already only does those two things.
    More options will probably come later and will be disable-able.
  27. Offline


    Where does it store the logs?
  28. Offline


    In the root directory of the server (the folder with server_nogui.bat) in a file called 'logdata.db2' or 'logdata.db' in the older version.
  29. Offline


    links down, well the whole site of (maybe its chrome?)

    Before I download what if someone breaks a block how will i know who destroyed it since it's not there to click?

    No offence intended but you obviously can't read.
    That's part of the original post quoted, now read 4) in "How to use:".

    Was it really that hard that a 13 year old had to explain how to read to you?
