    This feature would allow for admins who might be hosting for a younger group monitor the chat to ensure no bullying is occurring.

    I would like to see a chat log output somewhere, whether on the console, in a database, or even just a flat file. Somewhere that the information could be reviewed by the server admin(s) for any number of reasons.

    This is absolutely essential. At the moment, there is no way to consume output from the console, say, in response to the `save query` command, as recommended by the documentation.

    The bug tracker team appears to have ignored requests to add logging, as it doesn't constitute an issue… but it's definitely an omission that prevents the software from being used as designed.

    I would also like to see some way to access logs.  Currently it seems that there is not even a flat log file available.  thx

    It would also help with backups. TBH the help file expects you to be able to get a stdout but there is no way provided to us.

    We need a way to get the information sent by players in the game, then we can let robots use chat logs and "/say" commands to let players chat with each other in chat rooms. Imagine that you don't need to enter the game to talk to the players! How exciting it is!

    This needs to be implemented.  Lack of being able to extract chat logs represents a clear security and safety risk to a server.  If I cannot reproduce what is said in chat, it becomes a "he said, she said" situation.  Unless one of the players screenshots a convo, I have no proof the convo happened.  This opens the risk to online bullying and harassment.  Of course I have the power to kick and ban if I hear of such activities, but without 'proof' I (the MOD) could be put in a bad position.

    Output to the console would be the simplest (I would think) to implement.  Front end software like MCBEPlay already captures all of the console outputs into archives.

    This is a necessity in order to use this version of Minecraft for kids. My school updated to BDS and is having more trouble than ever monitor student's activity. I'm so tired of the "he said, she said" that could all be resolved with a simple logging update.  PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP TO KEEP OUR KIDS SAFE!
