BanVote utilizes the CurseForge API to check for updates. You can change the setting DBO_Update to the following values:

  • both - check for updates and download them
  • announce - only check for updates and announce
  • download - only download, not announce
  • anything else - disabled

Phoning home

To determine popularity and usage of BanVote, the server contacts my private server for information purposes. It sends your port, IP (for proper server counting), and the plugin version. That's it! If you want to disable that, set "Stats" to false in the config!
