I'd like to have a Minecraft server where a user can only spawn once and when they die they get booted from the server. I know I can use white-list.txt to only allow a specific user on at a time, but I'm unsure how to detect that a user has died and drop their connection. How would you go about doing this?

With this plugin for bukkit -> Exile v2.0 - Banish from the server or world on death!

You can set a timer on how long they can be banned before they can come back to the server or set it to eternity.

You can do this in a vanilla server now by setting this line in server.properties:


This will auto-ban anyone who dies on the server.
