Disclaimer: While as recently as two days ago someone appears to have added the plugin to their server, its latest update was two months ago. Since it is an extension of Residence, I do not know how much this matters, all I know is that the latest update was for CB 1.5.1-RO.2.

ResExtras is an extension on Residence which adds additional flags. These include flags to protect livestock and villagers, whose griefing has been a problem for a while, including the ones at the newbie trials.

The government might be interested in "animalkilling" and "villagerkilling" for protection, "hunger" to let people not starve while exploring Spawn, "eggs" to prevent the egging of Government property, and possibly "sprint" and "sneak" for devious events.

Players would be interested in "animalkilling" and "villagerkilling" as well. The "form" and "melt" flags support well-lighted iglos and ice-free channels, while "shear" would make sure only those you want to can use your sheep farms.

Flags the server likely don't want are:
- "mobkilling", helps prevent others from using one's grinders but has griefing potential with monster traps.
- Disallowing/allowing specific monsters/animals from spawning. It has value for letting only specific monsters spawn in your town (such as harmless creepers thanks to -creeper) but could too easily be used for afk-grinders that could cause server stress. If someone uses a spawner and is close to it, only the right kind of mobs would spawn anyway.
- "pickup" would protect your grinders and harvests of being griefed, but could be abused to frustrate players. Just get hoppers.
- Needless to say the "trade" flag is in direct conflict with the server rules.

The other flags do not seem to matter and are not interesting ones, unless the Government wants specific events that take place in an always-day or always-night area.

 

The plugin has existed for over a year, is considered a release version and is in use by 92 servers according to mcstats. It provides .java files for its classes.

It's a good suggestion, and it's been brought up several times before in various forms.  I, for one, would love to see the animal/villager killing flags.  They'd save a lot of headaches from griefers.

I think it's definitely something that the staff will look into.  Thanks :)

the "villagerkilling" flag would safe me a lot of headaches (about opening "my" npc village to the public)

and i'd love to have the "eggs" flag set on the spawn island. i despise chickens in places where you can't reach them (and thus can't silence them)

I've ask mudwog to look into this residence extension closer. Residence and (mcMMO) are the two largest CPU intensive plugins and hence this additional will have to pass close scrutiny before I will accept it.
