If you run a server, this may be one of the simplest conveniences you can afford your players. RankList is a fairly basic plugin by teozfrank, adding a single command that will save players and server owners/administrators alike a great deal of time.
As the name suggests, the plugin displays a list of ranks on the server. These are usually donator ranks, but can of course be used for anything (i.e. given to players for winning events, completing quests, etc.). To activate the plugin, a player must simply type:
It also comes with the capability of displaying this command when the player starts the game, effectively eliminating the previously inevitable stream of “What ranks are there?” flowing through chat. For players, this represents a convenient way to check ranks without bothering someone or having to open their browser and navigate to the website.
Ranks are easily changed in the config file. Simply type rank1: ‘rankname’ obviously replacing the number with the rank’s number and the name with its name. Color codes can be used as well.
The configuration file incorrectly states in this screenshot that only 10 ranks can be used – the plugin now supports up to 20 ranks.
There is one other command, for use by server operators:
This simply reloads the plugin, updating ranking information from the config file as well.
My opinion on this plugin: as with most plugins, it adds a minor feature that acts as a convenience more than anything. It is extremely lightweight, so if your server features ranks, this is a great addition!

I am curious to see how many of my readers are server owners or operators. If you are, post a comment and let me know – I may start reviewing more server-oriented content.
