    I am currently re-programming this plugin from the ground up! Unfortunately my studies are slowing this process down tremendously although it's slowly making progress. Expect to see a Better-BetterCommandSpy!
    The plugin still works, there is currently one minor issue which will be resolved in the upcoming iteration of the plugin ;)


    For years, I've struggled to find a suitable command spy plugin. I've been using solutions which have bugs and lack very basic and expected features. All I want to do is make sure my users aren't up to no good.

    So, I created BetterCommandSpy to solve my issue. BCS's main goal is to alert players with permission (i.e., staff members) of what commands other players are running.
    It's pretty powerful, containing all the features that a command spy plugin requires, and no more. This makes it a featherweight on your server's (very) precious hardware, and no annoyance to your staff and administrators who need to use it on a day to day basis.



    Alerts you of all the commands your users run.


    Catch players thirsty for a list of plugins. ;)

    ..and be the top spy

    • Toggle command spy mode for yourself and other players (even when they're offline)
    • Two configuration files which allow in-depth customisation of the resource
    • No bloat or stupid features, it just spies on commands ;)
    • Handful of permissions, such as being able to have staff spy on your player's commands, but not the owner's commands
    • Tab suggested commands for ease of use
    • Compatible with most vanish plugins

    An easy to use and configure plugin that does it's job great, although sometimes turning off or on the spy requires a relogin.

    Can't believe I forgot to review BCS! By far this simple to execute system provides an incredibly useful tool for staff on an MC server. The effort and professionalism put into all of these free resources makes these far stronger candidates than others.

      Thank you very much Oathkeeper! Glad the resource found a home on an excellent server with an excellent owner.

      Hi, thanks for the rating. You may translate and repost the resource, although I wish that you direct MCBBS users to download the plugin on this page. :)

    I cannot explain how much i'm glad that I found this plugin. There's literally no other working plugins like it other than command watcher, and that one disables when you leave the game and there's no way to fix it. Thank you so much! I cannot believe this isn't more popular!

      Thanks so much wolftam, your review and kindness are highly appreciated!

      Since I barely ever update this resource, it doesn't get much recognition unfortunately. I'll see if I can improve it by a plugin page redesign or something along those lines. More people using the plugin = more suggestions and bug reports = better plugin for everyone. :)

    I'm surprised that this plugin hasn't gained ratings I guess I'll be the first one.
    It's an amazing straight-forward plugin. It does what it says really well - it's reliable, easy to use and configure, and overall probably the solution you're looking for. I was looking all over Spigot for a reliable and easy-to-configure plugin. None of them did it but this one. This did it all and it'll be a life saver when I see players msging each other about malicious things :D
    TDLR; amazing plugin, 100/10
