I was thinking, with the books Minecraft has come out with, it's time to replace those 500 blocks worth of signs with a simple book. Is there a Bukkit Plugin that will automatically give new users a rulebook?

They do it in MineZ so there's gotta be something which makes it possible. – shanodin Jul 7 '13 at 9:07
@shanodin Assuming they use bukkit and not e.g. a custom server. But anyway, yes, it is possible – Zommuter Jul 12 '13 at 11:00
@Zommuter true indeed – shanodin Jul 12 '13 at 17:27
Are you willing to use command blocks instead, because you could do it that way? – Jason_ Feb 17 at 8:52

The BookRules plugin might be exactly what you are looking for:

Automatically give players written books containing rules, getting started guides, etc when they join your server.

It's pretty simple to use:

  • in the config file set Seconds-Delay to a value you deem appropriate. (It's the time in seconds between a new player login and the book being given to the player)
  • In game, write a book with all the rules
  • use /rulebook add to add the book as a rule book.
  • enjoy

A plugin that would be nice would be a book read plugin keeping all new player in prison as long as they haven't finished reading the rule book.

+1, but re your last paragraph, that's just like EULA: everyone will click "read & understood", but once you're forced to do so you won't... – Zommuter Jul 30 '13 at 9:47
