How to Stop /list Spam in Console

Whenever you order a new server from us, it's set up and managed through the Multicraft panel. The Multicraft panel has a whole range of useful tools to help manage your server, from in-browser config files, or being able to set up scheduled tasks without the use of plugins. However, one feature many users find annoying is the constant /list spam that appears in the console whenever your server is online.

Multicraft uses the /list command to check if your server is online, as well as the number of players on it. However, if you are running a server that can support plugins, there is a way to prevent this from showing up in your console and spamming your logs.

The easiest way to stop the /list spam is to install the Console Spam Fix plugin to get rid of the command from the console. You will need to be running a server that can support plugins to do this - so if you are running a Vanilla server we suggest that you change it to Paper, as not only will this allow you to stop the /list spam, but Paper has a large range of optimisations to help your server run better too!

Install The Plugin

  1. Stop your server.
  2. Install the plugin Console Spam Fix you can find it here: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/console-spam-fix.18410/

If you are unsure how to install plugins you can find our knowledgebase article on installing plugins here: https://shockbyte.com/billing/knowledgebase/49/How-to-install-Plugins-on-your-Minecraft-Server.html

Configure The Plugin

  1. Restart your server.
  2. Navigate to Files > FTP File Access > Plugins and ensure your server has generated a folder called Console Spam Fix.
  3. Stop your server again.
  4. Navigate into your Console Spam Fix folder, and open config.yml.
  5. Find the line saying Messages-To-Hide-Filter and add a line that includes the beginning of the message you'd like to hide. For example, to hide a message that says “There are 0 out of 20 players online”, you will just need to create a new line that hides `There are`.
  6. Click Save at the top of this page.
  7. Restart your server.
