This is a plugin for Minecraft Bukkit servers. Tested and still works in 1.7.2.
What does it do?
This plugin reports related player accounts as they login (to players with permission). It also has a cool feature of reporting the geographical location they are from (if that information is available at the time).
Related accounts are accounts that login from the same location (could be friends, family, or sharing of accounts). This is useful for admins to know. For example if one account has admin or creative privileges, they might be tempted to share among themselves.
How can I configure it?
Give players (or admin groups) "joe.iptracker.notify" permission to receive notifications in game. There is an in-game "/ipt" command also you can use to check version or lookup a player specifically. To grant access to that command give permission "joe.iptracker" also.
Thanks for your comments. On being spammy, that's very true. I've noticed this myself; Especially after a restart!
As a solution you can take away permission, I.e. grant the negative permission "-joe.iptracker.notify". Then if you need the information for someone you can use the "/ipt playername" command directly.
I tested this now with version 1.0.1 and seems to work well even as op. Let me know how it goes
I just switched from IP-Check to your plugin and I am so pleased with it. The information is concise, detailed, and there's no extra fluff (like tracking bans and what not). Thank you so much for this.
One suggestion: Would it be possible for there to be a config.yml file in which I can elect NOT to see the notifications for players without alternate accounts? This tool, while providing interesting information about where your players are coming from, can get quite spammy. I'd just like to know when a person with at least 1 related account logs in.
Perhaps if I have that configuration option set, the geolocation will not be displayed, but just the alternate accounts and the IP. Being the admin of a popular server, would you agree?
Waiting on approval to post. But meanwhile you can get it here:
