MCBans 5.0

After 11 years of operating, another release is required to ensure stability and speed required for a banning plugin. MCBans 5.0 is a complete rewrite for the API. This rewrite should drastically improve the service that MCBans provides. Additional features have been added and a couple of features are still under redevelopment. Alternate player account lookup is currently under construction but once testing is complete this will be released ( projected 1 month ). Below is a changelog of all the modifications and additions.
  • Offline Ban List
    • This was created to keep your servers bans in sync with MCBans API/Site.
    • This list will also re-sync with MCBans with your server bans while MCBans is in maintenance. ( expect this to be infrequent to non existent. )
    • This will store temporary, global and local bans. If MCBans is offline it will default back to your offline ban list.
    • Unbans from the site will also unban on your minecraft server after at most 30 seconds.
    • Bans are stored by player UUID.
