Anti Parrot

About this module

The Intelligent Anti Parrot module prevents players using hacked clients to automatically copy ("parrot") other players chat messages. Also prevents the same (non-generic) message from be said by multiple players within a short time frame.

To bypass this module, op or the permission: "chatsentry.antiparrot.bypass" is required.

Config guide

You can access the below settings in the anti-parrot.yml file within the modules folder of the plugin's root folder.

Config excerpts taken from v4.4.0 and may not be completely up-to-date with the latest changes. To see the most up-to-date file, see below:


Should anti parrot utilize extra intelligence algorithms? Keeping this on is highly recommended. Typically having this on extends compatibility to detect players using premium / smarter hacked clients.

intelligent: true


If true, short messages such as "lol" or "xD" will be ignored and not detected as parroting if multiple players repeat them in a short time frame.

Note that this only applies to VERY short messages like the examples mentioned above.

ignore-short: true


Should players usernames in any phrase-whitelist phrases be ignored?

ignore-usernames: true


The phrases below are phrases that the module will ignore, and can be said by multiple players within a short time frame.

Character case in the below list does NOT matter. Case variants are automatically checked by the plugin.

Set to "phrase-whitelist: []" to have an empty list.

  - "wb"
  - "welcome back"
  - "wbbb"
  - "weba"
  - "yes"
  - "yea"
  - "ok"
  - "sure"
  - "no"
  - "nope"
  - "nah"
  - "yup"
  - "yep"
  - "yeh"


How similar must a message be to a phrase on the list above to be considered the same and also whitelisted? (in %)

1.0 = exactly as one of the phrases on the list (excluding character case) 0.0 = not exact at all (this eliminates the purpose of the whitelist)

phrase-whitelist-similarity-threshold: 0.85
