    Not a lot of documentation examples for the Paths.yml. I really liked the old AutoRank. I can't figure out how to get LuckPerms Track to work with the Paths.yml syntax.

    This was built for PEX, so if you have that, you should be good to go. For the rest of us, its kind of a headache

    TL;DR: It was a great plugin, until it stopped functioning properly and trying to get ahold of the plugin dev is damn near impossible.

    I've been using this plugin for almost 2 years now. It's a fantastic plugin. Does exactly what I want it to do, simple to use, coded well. I started using it I think in 1.11, and I've been using it since and upgrading with no problems, using the same files that I've been using, and when I switched to 1.15 and upgraded the plugin, that's when the problems arose.

    All of the files that contained players' playtime vanished. All of the backups that the plugin automatically created also vanished. This was over 1 year of playtime for every player who joined the server, all of it gone. This was a serious problem. I only do full server backups for the world because I home host and don't have enough money for lots of storage, and it was appealing that the plugin automatically created backups, but due to this issue, I lost all of the important files completely out of the blue.

    I joined their Discord server and explained my issue. The plugin Dev, Staartvin, did respond to me and said that he didn't know of the issue, and told me that the plugin does not have the ability to delete the files. I found it very odd since no other plugin suffered data loss, so it wouldn't make sense for this to have been caused by something else.

    I started looking into the issue and did find another person with the same exact issue. Thread here: https://www.spigotmc.org/threads/autorank-issues-alternatives.378972/

    This affirmed that this problem wasn't a fluke caused by my server, and that this is an issue that has happened before to other people. This is a pretty large issue, and I tagged him a few times on the Discord server but got no response.

    I started to restore the playtime to the best of my ability, by creating a file, where I looked at each players ranks and gave them the minimum amount of playtime for that rank (since my system was that you get a new rank w/ perks after a certain amount of playtime). It's not a perfect fix since players would still lose playtime, but it was good enough since the files are now gone.

    I wanted to use the /ar import feature, but as I found out, that is also broken! This was also confirmed by another player on the Discord server that /ar import was not working. I tried it, and it would import about half of the file, but then reset the file after a restart anyway. So it was useless. The plugin was still deleting files after seemingly every restart, and the import feature isn't even working properly.

    After tagging Staartvin on multiple occasions and explaining my issue, I still did not get a response. My server has been down for over 1 month and the problem is not anywhere near fixed, so now I'll have to look for a new autorank plugin and hope that it can offer at least half of the functionality that this one did.

    Overall I'm very disappointed. I will say that, when I was getting responses from him, Staartvin was very nice and understanding. I do think he is a good guy, but I find it pretty annoying that I'm not getting any responses from him on the Discord server, about a bug that is basically making the plugin unusable for me. I'd be willing to remove my review if these bugs are fixed, my Discord is Cam#1499.

    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!

    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.

    Something that basic such as removing users from a path is completely out of the reach of the plugin. If your users have 2 accidental paths to two different ranks in your permissions system, what do you do? You remove the lowest path, right? Wrong. You can't.

    And it's really stupid the way commands work. There's this essential command that your users need to see exactly how much they've progressed with the path, but it also shows it everything. I mean EVERYTHING. I don't want my users to see which commands execute when they complete the path.

    Its terrible than old version.

    I had use Autorank since 1.7, then once i used the "latest version", i expect better, but no.

    It makes it even alienated to previous one.

    v3 is better

    Doesn't actually auto rank players. It was before then all of a sudden it broke without anything changing. The progress bar doesn't even work.

    server creator friendly 1/5

    do a lot of jobs and binded on a lot of requirement. can be costumised a lot and when i say a lot its like a full blank page where you need to spend your week long to code it for 30 rank.... i mean its realy not for someone want to plug press some button and play. but if you want something working and complete i recommand it has well. just can i suggest to rework your wiki? its kinda a mess when you are trying to find some info and exemple or a list of option we can use. i never saw something missing this much of stuff but getting a lot of stuff too. real maze for the prob and japaness language for noob!
