Hey guys I thought to myself, Minehut still hasn't added a restart button. Then I thought they still haven't added __insert suggestion here__. So I thought I'd make a list of frequently suggested features or features that've been requested, and given the ok but never added. Here we go.
Pretty well requested over time. It's been wanted here, there, around the corner, but at the end of the day, We're buttonless.
- Don't say that this is "lazy" or "dumb" or "stupid". This can prevent issues that can arise when trying to start your server while its stopping.
Fixing world generation
You know, you'd expect to be able to use custom presets, or even the built in world presets at minimum.
If you don't think its broken, great! You're really smart. No you're not--https://vimeo.com/348837066
Add more 'Items Per Page' Settings
This one has me baffled on why we couldn't have this yet, seeing as where all it does it give you a higher setting on the display items dropdown menu in the plugin list. We have 10, 25, 50. Add 100, or better yet, all. Some people prefer installing all of their plugins at once. Not going through pages for tens of minutes.
Changing your server version + plugin versions
It'll be a bit of work, but in the end, you're just giving us more server customability. Lots of people I know stay away from Minehut because you can't customize your server fully. People would enjoy being able to truly change the version of their server. Not install protocol support or another protocol hack. Plugin versions would also be useful too, because in the case that a plugin breaks on update (Skript, 7/22/19), we could use a lower version ourselves, not be at the mercy of the administrators.
It's really not that hard. The forums have a light and a dark theme. Not sure why the panel can't.
More than one instance of your panel at a time
We used to be able to have 2 or more tabs open, and be logged in to more than one account. Unsure why this was removed because it provided a safety window for people transferring server names to other accounts. Lots of snipers out there.
Server Icons (Both Minehut server list and the Minecraft server list)
We should be able to change the icon of our server in the Minecraft server list. Some people just don't like being stuck with the Minehut logo. It would also be pretty neat if we had purchasable icons in the dashboard to apply to our servers. I say purchasable because we'd have complete insanity in the server list if everyone could have an icon for free.
Lots of people share their private panel information containing some credentials because Minehut has yet to add co-users.
Almost every other host has it, but Minehut. Would be a little neat to have live console, instead of having to navigate to our logs, latest.log, and then scroll all the way up to where we're at.
I wish I could just scream this one.
Getting unused server names
People have been searching for cool server names forever. Player 1 finds one. Then he finds out the server hasn't been used in 4 months. He'd like to use the server name because it's really cool. Thanks to Minehut, that inactive account will contain the server name probably forever since account owner no longer plays Minehut.
^ The system for this would either be automatic or have to be done manually be some sort of application of request to an admin. I personally think it should be automatic, but both methods have been suggested. After 5, 6, months of complete inactivity, the server names should be renamed to a random 4-10 length string. Definitely give everyone a heads up about this though.
The only real issue here is file permissions. Deny editing permissions to files like server.properties, your plugins folder, etc. It seems again that other hosts are ahead of Minehut in this department.
Now personally I don't really care much about this one but its been suggested a few times and so I listed it here. It's pretty self explanatory, people want to be able to join Minehut with the bedrock version of Minecraft.
More player slots / ram settings
Minehut is growing, we're needing more. Don't get confused here as I'm not suggesting buy more servers (Although it would help), I'm saying there should be more options when spending credits on player slots and ram.
Remake the Join Random Server button
Don't you hate it when you actually try to join a random server and its whitelisted.
More plugin filters
In the plugins list, add more filters like "New" or "Premium".
Lots of people have anti-alt scripts or ip-ban scripts which don't have much use when player's aren't actually on their IPs. Now, I know this is a security issue, so take a look at this dude's post. https://forums.minehut.com/topic/1842-fix-ips/
Two factor authentication would be great. Your developer leaked your panel credentials? Enable 2FA.

Improved file editor
The built in file editor is imo, garbage, You can't tab anything, which removes about half the scripters on Minehut from every using the built in file editor. At the very minimum use something like Notepad++. Or better yet, give us an option to choose between the default text editor, and something like vs-code.
Self explanatory, people want to gift credits. Not transfer credits, buy credits for others. There's no issue in people exploiting the voting site and getting multiple votes a day on one account, because you aren't gifting free credits, you're buying credits, and they're going directly to the receiver's account. Right now, if people wanted to gift credits, they'd have to buy it on the user's panel, and that is unsafe for a number of reasons.
Let us download more files
We've got hacked a couple of times, and people are just worried about their servers. Some people would like to backup a bit more then just their worlds.
Fix starting issues
People would be waiting for their servers to start for 5 minutes, then it would stop...
There's literally a meme. https://imgur.com/tehozbf
More donator perks
I understand its purely cosmetic and it helps Minehut out, but some people bought it because they thought it would benefit them. Even giving us half a gb more ram would be appreciated.
Have the plugin author and version be displayed somewhere in the plugin information.
More file extensions
I understand these are all at different levels of priority, but they all should get added in time. Some should already be here though.
If I missed something, feel free to comment it down below, and I'll add it to the list.
Please note that I am in no way trying to attack Minehut here, I am simply giving an effort to bring improvement to Minehut.
Don't just give these the ok and then never add them. Some of these seem really easy to implement. Like showing more items on a list...? How was that not added yet. Not even a feature just a little quality of life.
