MCStats is a unique service that is entirely open.

MCStats is free, open source and anonymous. All data is public and freely available for every plugin.

The project started as an idea to create an open source stats system for LWC. I wanted to share this with any other author too and so I slowly built the system up. It has became very powerful today and for that I am very proud of what has been done already.

Some plugins out there use a significantly less powerful system for tracking plugin usage but they do not tell you about it nor can you see the code that is being used, so you can never be sure they're not doing something bad.

While MCStats forces plugins to show their data to everyone, it also means they are proud to show you the data they're collecting with it. I believe this is a step in the right direction and something all authors should strive for with transparency.

Server Owners

For this service to track a plugin, an author must explicitly add it to their plugin. They will most likely have made note of this addition in any changelogs. Your server cannot be identified nor controlled in any way by MCStats. As well, you have access to the same data that the plugin author can see.

You are free to opt-out of submitting data whenever you wish. This will immediately stop sending data for any plugins that supports MCStats / Plugin Metrics. Simply edit plugins/PluginMetrics/config.yml and change opt-out: false to true
