I have a Minecraft server I've just started for a few friends. We're playing on hard, and I'm going to set it up so that players spawn with a few minimal items to get them going. Some of them jumped in briefly and logged out after less than 5 minutes last night. How do I reset their progress so that when next they log in, they spawn as if they have never logged in before and have the items I set new players to spawn with?

I.E., how do I make the server forget that they were ever there?

For the record, myself and another friend played for some time last night, so I don't want to completely reset the world from scratch. –  Tim Coker Feb 26 at 15:34
    
Also, this is a hosted server with Exodus hosting, which uses the Multicraft control panel. I have full access to the server's files via FTP, too. –  Tim Coker Feb 26 at 15:35

If you remove the files in the world\players and world\stats folder, the server will forget that they were there. Files bear the user name of the player, so you can delete selectively. If this is a bukkit server, there is a players folder in each world.

Also, since Minecraft version 1.7, there is a world\stats directory, which contains playername.json files. These contain the player's statistics and achievements. –  Jemus42 Feb 26 at 15:50
    
@Jemus42 Thanks, I updated the answer –  Kcats Feb 26 at 16:10
    
I can do that, but I'm curious if deleting someone from the players list via the multicraft panel has the same effect. I'd assume so, but do you know for sure? –  Tim Coker Feb 26 at 16:23
    
@TimCoker I'm not familiar with the multicraft panel, sorry. –  Kcats Feb 27 at 6:51
    
To follow up, the way to do this is by deleting files. The multicraft panel doesn't delete the files. –  Tim Coker Feb 28 at 15:00
