    Source Code:
    ProNouns is a plugin aimed at LGBTQ+ servers allowing players to set their pronouns properly. No more faffing with permission groups, no more nicknaming, no more worrying about people with less common pronoun sets!

    I now have a support Discord server! Join it here:

    More comprehensive documentation available at

    • Players can set their pronouns individually
    • Players can set multiple pronoun sets
    • PlaceholderAPI support - write pronoun-aware automated messages!
    • Custom player-defined pronoun sets
    • MySQL support for BungeeCord servers
    • It's really pretty and supports RGB throughout
    • Plenty of neopronouns predefined using ProNouns Cloud
    • /pronouns - Shows all available commands for the plugin.
    • /pronouns set - Sets your pronouns. If you use more than one set, put your "preferred" set first (they'll be used in automated messages if configured), and put the rest separated by a space. For example, /pronouns set she they
    • /pronouns clear - Clears your pronouns
    • /pronouns show - Shows your, or another player's, pronouns.
    • /pronouns list - List all predefined pronoun sets. (if yours aren't listed here, you can still use them - see "Custom Pronouns" below for more info!)
    • /pronouns preview - Test out your pronouns in a sentence.
    • /pronouns setother (requires pronouns.admin permission) - Sets another player's pronouns.
    • /pronouns clearother (requires pronouns.admin permission) - Sets another player's pronouns.
    • /pronouns cloud (requires pronouns.admin permission) - Manages the local copy of the ProNouns Cloud database.
    • /pronouns reload (requires pronouns.admin permission) - Reloads the configuration file.
    Predefined Pronouns:
    To use these sets, you don't need to type out all 6 pronouns! Just use the first one out of these sets:
    • he (he/him/he's/his/his/himself)
    • she (she/her/she's/her/hers/herself)
    • they (they/them/they're/their/theirs/themself)
    • any (special, uses they/them in placeholders but shows as "Any")
    Custom Pronouns

    Are your pronouns not listed in /pronouns list? No problem! Setting custom pronouns is super easy. Here's how you do it:

    /pronouns set subjective/objective/progressive/possessive-adj/possessive-pronoun/reflexive

    Here are some examples just in case you're not a linguist:
    /pronouns set he/him/he's/his/his/himself
    /pronouns set she/her/she's/her/hers/herself
    /pronouns set they/them/they're/their/theirs/themself


    To prevent abuse, the plugin is equipped with a basic regex-based filter. By default it detects the words "apache" and "helicopter". It can be disabled and custom rules can be added from the config. Players with the permission pronouns.bypass will not be affected by this


    ProNouns provides a selection of PAPI placeholders so you can use pronouns in messages!
    No eCloud expansion is needed - it's built into the plugin.
    • %pronouns_pronouns% - pronouns, in the Subjective/Objective format ie She/Her
    • %pronouns_subjective% - subjective pronoun
    • %pronouns_objective% - objective pronoun
    • %pronouns_progressive% - progressive pronoun
    • %pronouns_possessiveadj% - possessive adjective
    • %pronouns_possessivepro% - possessive pronoun
    • %pronouns_reflexive% - reflexive pronouns
    • %pronouns_all% - all 6 pronouns
    All placeholders also have some formatting modifiers that can be added to the end of the name to control capitalisation:
    • upper - uppercase (SHE)
    • lower - lowercase (she)
    • capital - first letter uppercase, everything else lowercase (She)
    Some examples using the she/her pronoun set:

    • %pronouns_subjective_upper% - SHE
    • %pronoun_possessivepro_capital% - Hers

    This is a great plugin by the wonderful Lucy. It helps make servers become more inclusive and let's users be known by their prefered pronouns. Good job Lucy!

    Hey (It's Monjii, I own FruitySMP)

    It's a great plugin, great functionality, good to see lots of downloads too. We're definitely moving in the right direction and the Minecraft community is evolving as we speak. If you're looking for a simple plugin that does the job, this is the one for you.

    Would be great to see better customisability, such as all the text/colours etc although I know that is something that Lucy is working on.

    Excellent job with the Pronouns plugin, implemented it on my server yesterday and so far people absolutely love the utility of it.

    This plugin is thought out very well! And the way it looks is awesome! Not to mention... PlaceholderAPI support (literally the most useful thing ever)! Plus MySQL support for cross server pronouns ☆o☆

    The only thing I wish the plugin did differently was instead of writing nothing when no pronouns are set rather than "unset". Or better yet, if that could be an option the user could change in the config.yml!

    Thanks for making such an awesome plugin for the Minecraft Community! And to the people leaving 1☆ reviews. Pronouns are not a political issue in the slightest

      Thanks for the review! If you weren't aware of this, placeholders in recent versions can show nothing if empty, just put `_nounset` on the end, for example `%pronouns_pronouns_nounset%`.

    This plugin is great and really allows for the representation of more players in the Minecraft community. I don't usually write reviews but I wanted to write one to offset the disgusting 1-star review where somebody said "don't bring politics to Minecraft". What an ignorant and silly comment. Keep up the good work author!

    this doesn't deserve one star reviews. it isn't political, it works perfectly and I don't see anything wrong with it. If you don't want this plugin on your server, don't download it then lol

      The plugin, or the entire concept of pronouns for that matter, is not political at all.

      My apologies, I copypasted the wrong link, I've fixed it now. Could you please elaborate on what you mean by "ignores typical pronouns"?
