I started development on this plugin as I had a gap in my own Bukkit servers as I had to either be in game or checking the console logs all the time to see what was happening in my servers. This allowed me to know if anyone had any problems without needing to constantly check the logs. The main idea of this plugin came from plugins I had seen in other games such as servers in Battlefield 3 which had commands you could use to call an admin for assistance.
This Bukkit plugin allows for a simple message to be sent from the Bukkit server to a small client application to help server administrators manage a server. The messages are sent whenever a person playing on the Bukkit server types the command /calladmin followed by an optional message.
Over time I have added features to this plugin which included the ability to send messages back to the server, saving of the configuration used to connect from the GUI client, Update notifications in the server plugin, permissions for security and MCStats.org stastics.
I have numerous other features in development which include an Android app that can monitor for plugin messages, multiple usernames and passwords, limited game commands that can be sent from the remote monitor to the server, online lists and much more.
If you have any ideas please do contact me through either a comment here or on the Bukkit page for the plugin.
I have since discontinued updates for this plugin after the issues with Bukkit and Minecraft. – More details on this decision can be located on the parent page http://arweth.com/?p=14 Edit 25 Oct 2015:
Due to multiple requests CallAdmin has been pulled back into active development. Stay tuned for more updates on the future of CallAdmin.
Is CallAdmin still in development?
Replying here as well so people can see this comment on the other page if they are intrested 🙂 https://arweth.com/2014/08/…
Teamspeak integration? Most of our staff are on teamspeak that majority of the day and we have another calladmin for our source servers that links to teamspeak, do you think you could implement such a feature? it would be a huge plus for us and i would be willing to fund this.
It’s something I could consider in a future release. I’m not actively developing the plugin right now but plan to relaunch it in a few months.
With teamspeak integration what sort of functionality would you be after?
well our current system with our sourcemod calladmin just sends a message to the admins of the teamspeak server using ts3 php framework. thus users would need a web server. it simply sends 3 things. the name of the person sending the report, the reason for the report (hacking, griefing etc.) and the name of the person being reported. if you would like to see the source code for the web interface feel free to email me or add me on steam or whatever.

Sweet wasn’t sure of that’s all you were after with it. I have a few ideas on how to do it already so should be all good on the code side – Will let you know in the coming months once I get an alpha / beta of it running.
I am currently a mod for a decently active server using your plugin, and I find a majority of the issues that arise are for either verbal counseling or questions, and due to school/work/family we find ourselves unable to be near a computer to monitor events, would it be possible to create iPhone/Android extensions to help alleviate this?
Hey Joe this is definitely something I am working on at the moment. At this stage it will only be on Android I only have a few more changes to make so hopefully I will have it out in the next month or so. I will look at branching it to iOS as well but not sure when that will happen.
