Frequently asked questions about ChatSentry
Yes! ChatSentry has been intensely tested and is optimized to support and process large quantities of players.
The plugin has been used on a network of ~5K avg. players and ran incredibly well
Yes! Support is natively made for BungeeCord, but adapters like Snap can allow you to use the features on Velocity. ChatSentry can automatically sync config settings and player data with other ChatSentry instances across your network, as well as other synchronization abilities like cross-server admin notifier messages.
Note that ChatSentry is not fully a proxy plugin, meaning it must be installed not just on the proxy, but on all Spigot/Paper/etc. servers as well. Adding the plugin to your proxy creates a bridge allowing for cross server communication between ChatSentry instances on your network
No, your chat messages never leave your server and are processed on the server locally.
ChatSentry has been tested and is compatible with servers running Spigot, Paper, & CraftBukkit on versions 1.8 to 1.18.1+
Other types and versions may work, however, minimal to no support will be provided for directly related issues on unsupported server types or versions.
There is no guarantee that ChatSentry will work with every single chat plugin, though it's highly unlikely there will be any conflictions with regular chat modification plugins. Meaning, ChatSentry should work just fine along other chat-based plugins like DeluxeChat, EssentialsChat, LegendChat, etc.
This issue will resolve on its own within a few hours. Spigot's API (used for checking for new updates) refreshes every 2-6 hours, meaning if you updated within 6 hours of the update being released, Spigot just takes a bit of time to tell ChatSentry that it is the latest version.
After the new update has been released for 2-6 or more hours, ChatSentry will automatically detect it's running the latest version and fix the incorrect version status tag.
I am always open to suggestions for any of my plugins, and many of the existing features are related suggestions from others like you! You can contact me either on my Discord Server, or by starting a conversation with kixmc on SpigotMC.
