An auto censor plugin that enables you to stop worrying about players swearing on your server. The number of warnings can be specified, as can the action that is taken once the warnings are expired (kick or ban).

For Portuguese speaking users, user AbsintoJPl has very kindly provided a video tutorial for Badwords. Thanks AbsintoJ!


  • Individual words or entire phrases supported
  • Regular expression support
  • Banned words can be substituted for less offensive words
  • Admin can define how many warnings players get
  • Admin definable punishment (kick or ban)
  • Case insensitive matching
  • Only whole words or phrases are matched (i.e. "the" would not match in "tether")
