    Soo. i was looking at this documentation https://jenkins.pmmp.io/job/PocketMine-MP-doc/doxygen/index.html
    and stumbled on this thing:
    getUniqueId()
    an idea sparked in my head using UUID to blacklist a device from the server and i should make this a plugin.
    Before i go too far and start developing, is this a stupid idea?
    if it is, what is the reason?
    Idk but i'm sure someone had this idea before.
    Thanks
    (i feel the responses wouldn't be what i expected lol, i think the idea is stupid, should've posted in Facepalm)

    Do not ask for the consent of the community, but rather your own consent. Are you willing to do this plugin? If you're willing to do so, go ahead.

    Thanks.
    I was asking if it would be useful instead of working on it and then no one cares about it.
    Yep I'm willing to make it. Thanks for the advice

    how?
    i know an android can change their uuid by a factory reset
    Edit: omg the uuid changes by itself. well..... project cancelled (maybe)
    Edit2: i run the server in offline mode bcz i don't have XBL and the documentation says:
    • when logged into XBL: a hash of their XUID (and as such will not change for the lifetime of the XBL account)
    • when NOT logged into XBL: a hash of their name + clientID + secret device ID.
    As you can see. if i'm not logged into XBL the uuid can change, but most servers enable online mode, which means the uuid can't change bcz the players need an xbox account and XBL
    so maybe i will not cancel the project.
