    How can I make it so fake torrent accounts cant login as my name, because it kicks me off and they have admin powers...?

    If you want to keep online-mode off, just install xAuth.

    @Kaikz Will that not allow people with my same minecraft name to log on my server?

    It will allow them, but you will need to /login <password> every time you login, or else you can't do anything.

    @Kaikz can I just prevent them from even logging in with my name? Is there like a more simple plug in that does just this or something? I found one called LockIP but when I do /lockip myname it says "who is daclowns?" and i cant figure out what to do.

    @DaClown doesnt the LockIp require you to have a static ip? Or what exactly does it do? Because I think I have an idea for a great plugin :p

    @Pencil IDK lol.. idk what a static IP is, but is your idea to just make it so I can register my IP to my name so Only my IP allows my account to log on the server? So other people with fake accounts with my name cant log in and kick me off? It will like display "Sorry you're not registered to that name"? If thats what you're thinking CAN YOU PLEASE MAKE IT? Because this happened to my other buddy on his server, i think ti would be very usefull.

    If you do make it, it would be nice if it were really light and simple?

    Ehm a dynamic ip changes whenever your router restarts or after a certain time, mine does every 48 hours. That means you get a new IP. A static Ip is your IP stays the same ALL the time :p If you use iplock and ur Ip changes, u can't login anymore right? :3

    So what? Not for him. As long as he has a mc account it isn't. Anyone else who connects might be, but he? No. If the goverment would have invented torrents and would be putting up stuff to download would it be illegal? :3 Notch put it in, why would it be illegal to use :S

    That is your opinion, however, legally, he can run it in offline mode, and he can't get in trouble for it.

    make sure you have online mode set to true, no one can log in with your name, and as a cool side effect only those who have brought the game can log in

    No, sorry, cool people can pay 20$ for an awesomely addictive game like minecraft. Seriously, who can't afford 20 bucks?

    Offline mode is just asking for security issues. Frankly, I think Notch should just do away with offline mode entirely since the original reason it was introduced was to allow people to play even when the login servers were down, which doesn't happen much anymore.

    Yeah, I'm going to lawl so hard when Notch removes offline mode, and all these pirate servers go down the drain, considering Bukkit will never allow a plugin that re-enables offline mode to be posted once it's removed.

    it would be good if bukkit added something to stop the use of offline mode, it doesnt serve anyfunction other then allowing pirate copys and exposing a server to numerouse secuity issues.

    Yeah, I think notch will eventually prevent all fake accounts from logging in... But like.. some of them have been building on my server for weeks and have spent hours and hours working on stuff... Its kind of hard to just shut them down...

    nope not hard at all, they know they like the game any excuse of "i pirate cos i dont know if the game is good" is out the window if they been building for weeks. Minecraft costs less then a takeaway its not prohibitivly expensive. Notch continues development of the game because people keep buying it, these guys aint supporting that. Add to that they are clearly exploiting the fact your letting them on the server by using your name! theres gratitude for you!
    kick em, if they want to get the use of the stuff they built they have to just buy the very very cheap minecraft!
