    I actually rarely give away OP. Only my best friends are given that kind of permission. I'm not posting these comments as something that I would see happen on just my server but for the community as a whole. I realize that there are bad owners/admins out there which is why I posted these.

    Further to B3

    B3 allows specification of any number of levels of admin from "Mod" (lvl 40) through to "Full admin" (lvl80) and on to "God Mode" (lvl100) and each with configurable command access.

    Indeed, if we could get it update to current API the excellent "Permission Plus" plugin gives a very close approximation of this. If you like to give out OP more freely than I do it is a simple matter to restrict it to Console only so as far as I see this addresses the last concern?

    This seems to be quite a debated topic so here I go with my side:
    I've seen many PC servers that do this. I've seen PC servers that give the exact city, state, and country where a person comes from, so I'm glad you didn't add that @DarkN3ss because those kind of features are not what I like when I enter a server at all. Anyways, the IP lookup thing isn't anything new to Minecraft. Essentials, one of the most used Bukkit plugins, has the command /seen, which tracks a player's last location on the server, their last IP login, and how long it's been since they were on. With this plugin, I agree with @decado, a player trusts a server and it's staff their IP address, location, etc. With the PC server I help run, we only use this information for tracking/banning constant rule-breakers with multiple accounts or past hackers. Other servers may use this information to track their players, I don't know, but a large part of trusting a server and being a regular player is to trust the staff. Any server that gives out op/admin commands to anyone would not be a server I'd ever want to join or be a part of.

    Not sure why everyone cares about the IP address thing. I see it all day, every day on my server. Nothing bad has come with it... Great plugin

    Yes, I hear you. It had a lamentable habbit of forgetting permissions and then sent the server into boot loop. Not sure if it was incompatable with the current api or other plugins but I had to remove it.

    Still, the concept is great if it can be debugged. I'd love to be able to give out a status lower than OP just to allow a few trusted players to kick trouble makers.

    Tried the latest update. However, it says that all the players are from the same country even though some of them are from the USA.

    Yes, you're not the only one this is happening to. I have informed the Author, he's just a little tied up IRL.

    Im not sure why everybody is hating but I think its a great plugin.
    Heres a suggestion, can you make a command so players can opt-out of the plugin so it doesn't show where they live?

    Oh no! People know what country you live in! They're going to track you down and kill you since they know what country you live in. (sarcasm)

    If you're giving away OP and/or administrator permissions to someone who would easily abuse them, then don't give it away so easily. I would never give someone administrator through an application or 'interview', not even moderator. You need to trust and know your staff members.

    This plugin is fantastic and a great addition to any server! The only issue is: inexperienced server owners think it's okay to give someone they barely know access to their user's private information. <-- Which is not the fault of this plugin.

    Great job @DarkN3ss :)

    (A little late to the convo, but wanted to give my opinion)
