    Autorank is an automatic ranking plugin that allows you to set rank-ups that have requirements. You can create requirements that make certain a player has at least x amount of money or x minutes played.

    An example:

    A player starts out as Guest.
    When he has played for more than 10 minutes and broke at least 10 iron ore, he will be ranked up to Member where he can do a lot of other things. Then, when he has played for a couple of days and earned 1000 money, he will be promoted to Trusted; a group that allows him to do cool stuff. This can go on for as many ranks as you like. The possibilities are endless! It's up to you!

    • keeps track of how long players are online and stores it in data.yml
    • an unlimited amount of automated ranks with configurable required play times
    • permission node that excludes a certain player from being ranked up
    • permission nodes for every command
    • configurable leaderboard for most time played
    • support for either global or world specific ranks
    • can execute commands after changing rank
    • can perform effects on a player at a certain location
    • seemless mysql integration
    • a lot of special requirements
    • mega customisable
    • can interact as a group on different servers in the same server network. (Keeps track of time on the whole server network)

    Before commenting, please read this:

    Dev builds:
    Development builds of this project can be acquired at the provided continuous integration server.
    These builds have not been approved by the BukkitDev staff. Use them at your own risk.

    I do not support dev builds. I may redirect you to a dev build to help test a new feature or check if a bug you reported is fixed, but use on a production server is highly discouraged. Those builds also do not provide the security that BukkitDev offers.

    This plugin utilises Hidendra's plugin metrics system, which means that the following information is collected and sent to
    (These stats can only be seen by the Autorank development team, and will never be shared with anybody else).

    • A unique identifier
    • The server's version of Java
    • Whether the server is in offline or online mode
    • The plugin's version
    • The server's version
    • The OS version/name and architecture
    • The core count for the CPU
    • The number of players online
    • The Metrics version
    • Whether you use the MySQL system of Autorank

    If you wish to disable this feature, you can do so by opt-ing out, which you can do in the config file under /plugins/PluginMetrics/

    This plugin has a built-in auto-updater, which connects to BukkitDev to check for updates. If you, for some reason, wish to disable this process, you can do so by disabling 'auto-updating' and 'version checking' in the advanced config.

    When you need Autorank to import time from other plugins you can use these converters:

    Autorank is using an advanced UUID system (for Minecraft 1.8) which is complex, but nevertheless explainable:
    When someone tries to perform a command that requires a player name, such as /ar check <playername>, Autorank will look up the UUID of that player via the Mojang website. I will not go into detail on how it does that, as that's too complex, but if you're interested you can look it up at Github.

    Autorank is using a specific part of the Mojang website (called, which is very secure. Autorank makes sure there are no traces of lookup left behind so that any player is completely anonymous. If you feel like Autorank might have a problem, please do ask. I'm glad to fix any problems that occur during runtime.

    I cannot, however, ensure that Mojang is storing the lookups anonymously. But as you probably already have a Mojang account (because you play Minecraft), I assume you trust Mojang to store their data nice and secure so no hacker can access it. If you feel like Autorank is harming you in any way, please do not hesitate to ask us and we'll try to answer your questions as adequately as we feel is possible.

    Get it while its hot! LOL

    I was stuck on AutoRank 3.4-Dev-355 because I've encountered many issues with newer versions of AutoRank since Paths replaced AdvancedConfig.

    I had problems with AR 4.x because AFK would not register correctly and since all of those years, it was due from an antiAFK plugin that registered as an AFK manager or somesort that prevented EssX to report AFK players to AutoRank. This is solved!!

    Had issues while using MySQL as primary storage provider, like -1 times when a new player comes in, this is solved in 4.3.1! Memory issues, Solved! Leaderboard console errors, Solved!

    Now thinking now with AR 4.3.1, I'm not looking back at AR 3.4 like I used it before, so I'm very happy to use this version!

    Very helpful developer, helped me to diagnose my problems and we've solved it nicely! Been a user of AutoRank since Jul 2013

    Thanks for all of your time and efford on this (and other) plugin(s)! I had a big issue with this plugin, contacted the developer and he was friendly enough to completely debug and solve the issue together. A lot of devs can learn from this. Thanks a lot, also a big THANK YOU on behalf of all players on my server!

      And so it seems I'm back :) I'm working on an update of Autorank, Plugin Library and Statz.

    The last good working version for me is 4.1 - all of the newer ones just simply do not load / work at all! Please, start back at 4.1 and update that version to 1.14.4 ! For now, its usable to count player online times, but auto rankup seems to be defective.
