What is MCG Plugin Security?

MCG Plugin Security is a system designed to make squashing bugs and errors more easy.
Not only that its made to remove the reporting need and all the forms most devs need.
It basically catches any error and packs them into a message then send it to MCG.
This is disabled by default but can be enabled to ensure Faster and more quick bugfixing and handling without needing everyone to report the errors.

What does it do?

Once a error pops up (no matter what type) in any of the MCG Plugins it catches it and pushes a more easy to understand error overview. what occuered what can be done? is it common?
And if its enabled to report it will try to see if there is already a solution if so provide the solution directly if not report it for investigation by the dev.
The report always contains the stacktrace of the error (basically the error itself including where it came from. which class and on what line.)
Optional you can enable Log file sharing to share your latest.log until it happined the plugin list to see if there is a plugin conflict and if ur using the right plugin and the serverinfo like for example if u run paper or spigot and what version ur running.
All these can be seperately turned on or off
By default all reporting and options are disabled

What about my privacy?

I totally understand that matter. thats why no personal or relateable information is send with the base report.
NO ip NO name NO server title motd playernames ect.
If you choose to send the latest.log the log does contain some information however this is just for investigation of the error and will not be shared nor looked into by other people then just the MCG Dev mmuziek.
nobody else. and the log is wiped when its problem is fixed or if its outdated.
The plugin list is only to see the plugins and their version to see if the versions match the ones supported. and if there is no outdated module in the mcg plugin causing it.
The server info is just sending PAPER build xxx or SPIGOT-1.16.5 snapshot nothing more nothing less.

So to be short there will be no personal or relateable info the only thing that might contain it depending on the way you look at it is the latest log but if thats disabled Nothing is send that can be tracked down or something,

Where can i enable/disable the system?

From MCGPS version 1 and lower it can be edited in the MCG Plugin Security folder config.yml file.
From version 2 you can do /mcg as op ingame to get a nice GUI to see its settings

All MCG plugins use the same settings so changing it at 1 location changes it for all
