    The plugin was good at the start (with the customization in the messages, etc) but then it got worse when I were going to test out something that involved the /ban command, Well, It worked, untill It was time to unban my friend that I tested it on... /unban didn't work, only worked on the tempbans and not bans, I went on the discord and needed urgent help cause I had to leave for the day,so I taqgged him, I saw that he was in the away state so I did'nt really think it would bother him, when I came home I saw that I was banned from the discord, I asked my other friend if he could join the discord and ask about the ame problem, 2/3 hours later another guy asked another questions, Author replied to him, Ignored my friend. I liked this plugin untill I found out the author is a Jerk

      Uff, so you got banned because you broke the discord rules? And then we did not immediately help the other account you bypassed your ban with? That author must indeed be a real jerk

    10/10 This plugin worked perfectly, we had a bit of a hiccup to start with, but the developer responded to my discord message within minutes and pointed out what the problem, keep up the great work dude!

    Good, but I found a bug. If you use MySQL and unban a player, the player will be unbanned by AdvancedBan, but not removed from the banned-players.json file. the player remains banned. Questions to [email protected] and sorry for my bad english;)

    best regards,

    Talk about the most frustrating plugin I have ever encountered. Couldn't even unban my players. Go for support and they tell me to read the rules. Why have a support discord if you don't help? A first negative review,so you know it is real.

      So you expect us to provide support to people not respecting our discord rules? That's not how it works m8, especially not if it's a free resource. And you broke like three rules at once. I'm not too sure who should be frustrated here ;D

    This plugin is just awesome.
    All messages are fully configurable.
    I recommend to set it up with a mysql database.
    Works perfect

    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.

      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

    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)
