    I used to love this plugin, but its getting worst and worst. Players are getting timed out when they join. I reported this over a month ago and its still not fixed..

    Seems great, on the surface. I needed assistance, so I joined the discord like this page says to do. I didn't receive support, neither did at least one other person. There's a team of people in the discord. Not a single one was helpful or useful.

    If you're going to tell people to ask for support someone - CHECK IT AND CHECK IT OFTEN.

    Oh, but what does Discord have to do with a plugin review? Well, how about the fact that I have an issue with the plugin that I needed an answer for.

    Thankfully the source is on Github and I was able to have my developer look at the source and answer my question.

    So lessons learned:
    AdvancedBan does NOT allow you to change the commands, and it WILL stomp on back-end server ban systems if you're using it on Bungee. So do all your unbans or make sure you can do /plugin:unban before installing it on Bungee.

    Don't ask for support. You won't get any. Leoko may be active, but his team are idiots and won't respond. And if you @ anyone on DIscord, you get yelled at. So, there's that.

    Changing the source code is a pain in the rear as it's horribly written. But then most spigot plugins are.

    And this ends my REVIEW of AdvancedBan.

      Author's Response
      I don't usually reply to reviews, but this is one of the first constructive bad reviews this resource got it a while, so:

      Support:
      Yes, there is a lack of support because I don't officially support this plugin myself anymore as I've begun to study and therefore don't have the time to do so. So it's up to some volunteers on the discord to help other people out. And they are doing great in my opinion.

      Discord:
      Yes, we do get mad if people just ignore the rules (e.g. tag us) but ultimately you got banned because you escalated the situation pretty badly. (got very demanding, tould people to fuck themselves, ...)

      Code Quality:
      Yes it's not the perfect code and I'd definitely do some things differently now but all in all, to call it "horribly written" is just and complete overstatement and rude.

    4 stars if players wouldn't be able to join when they are banned. Great config etc but the purpose of a ban plugin is to keep bad players banned and that doesn't work.

    This plugin was an amazing free punishment solution in the past but it seems that it has recently been abandoned, the author no longer responds to bug reports and the plugin no longer receives updates (Last update June 2018) It's a big shame that this plugin is now dead. Hopefully it will get revived in the future

    Bug - After 150 entries in banlist it does not display any other bans in banlist. Also /check command need to wait 120 seconds to get an result. Owner of this plugin not responding to my bug. It was an good plugin, but now it is not anymore! Earlier versions does not work, not loading.

    This is a super plugin bad though, is that the latest version does not work as it does when I give someone a ban so I can go back to the server and after writing / checking it only lists the name and the other one (none)

    Players are still able to join after ban., Support in discord is lousy if you start a question for help if the plugin is not working >>>> means you will be directly banned. Better to start listen to questions rather than ban everyone. Back to another ban plugin.

    hey a question for example a player has the admin rank and the rights of AdvancedBan but he is not on the blacklist the man in whom he is offline can not ban you can make a permission for it so also like advancedban.anti.offlineban or so who really helpful because man who can ban the right people and who they are higher than the other player

    Had some issues, After trying to get support in the discord i got banned! If the plugin just worked fine without me requiring support it would be a great plugin with a good future. If you are wondering who it is you banned without a reason: DUhITzRik#3222

      There is only one reason why people get banned from the discord and it's for breaking our discord rules.

      If you expect us to help you without expecting anything in return you should at least have the decency to read the rules first.

      You started tagging multiple people for help. And this after just waiting about 1h for a response. And you tagged some people which were not even involved in the plugin development/support.

    Well, if you ban a player it gets banned for max a day and then the player can join, while the plugin says its still banned. also I got banned from the discord because of asking support. in it's current state I won't recommend it to my friends.
