MelooonCensor returns!

4 years later, after being abandoned, the #1 censor plugin for Bukkit returns. This time, MelooonCensor is an open source project hosted on GitHub (

MelooonCensor 3 is a complete re-write of the original plugin back in 2012. It aims to target a more specific requirement, which is censoring - not muting. I believe that it makes more sense to write a piece of software which does one thing well, and not many things averagely.

Your ideas and issues are welcome in the discussion thread, or on GitHub issues ( Also, feel free to fork the code and send a PR if you think you have a cool idea worth sharing!


  • Fully customisable censor list
  • Censors text on signs [NEW]
  • 3rd party filter support (currently in beta)
  • Multiple chat filters (classic - which censors words which are on your censor list, and strict - which prevents messages from sending if they contain any words which are on the censor list)
  • An ignore list (for any words which contain bad words, but aren't bad themselves)
  • Automatic update notifications (the plugin ties into GitHub, and notifies you when there is a new version available)
  • Helpful commands to allow you to add words on the fly (without needing to touch the configuration file)
  • Command aliases to make configuring quick and easy
