Jul 3, 2012If you want to remove the plugin, you need to delete the jar file associated with it. The folders are used for settings and are usually automatically regenerated, but if you don't have the jar file, nothing will be loaded from the folder and it will be effectively nonexistant.Posted in: Server Support and Administration

you should also mention that before posting to use the search bar, unless its a personal issue.
That would be this right here:
2. Has it been posted already?
Many times, the problem you have has been posted already. It's a bit ironic to see "I need help with permissions" next to "How to set up permissions" on the thread list, so try searching for the thread beforehand. Typical rule of thumb is, however, if it's older than a week, it's definitely alright to make a new thread.
Jun 25, 2012Ok first, which permissions plugin are you using if you're using one, I'm pretty sure you are if you moved someone to the Admin group, depending on the plugin you are using they are different files but yes they do end in .yml.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
Jun 25, 2012If you get Multiverse you can have different worlds for each area and you can have them switch game modes and clear inventory way easier. You can set warps to them if you want tooPosted in: Server Support and Administration
Jun 24, 2012Wrong section... belongs in http://www.minecraftforum.net/forum/158-looking-for/Posted in: Server Recruitment
Jun 19, 2012You haven't searched hard enough.Posted in: Server Support and Administration
"/mv create flat_world NORMAL -t FLAT"
where "flat_world" is the name you want to give it.
then tp to that world by typing:
"/mvtp flat_world" or any other name you chose.
Jun 2, 2012Posted in: Server Support and AdministrationSmp Servers Won't ever be the same
What has happened to all the servers we used to love? Don't get me wrong PvP isn't a bad thing, But it isn't good either. What has happened to the days when people would team up and build and survive together? Those where the days of real Minecraft servers. Today just about every server you go on is loaded with plugins to the point where it has 50+ of them. There is no more mining on servers with shops because all you have to do is gather some cobblestone sell it, then buy a diamond on a server. I find this very far from being legit. I have also noticed a "Monkey see, Monkey do" Kind of thing with server owners. An owner sees a huge server loaded with whatever plugins he can find and he thinks that he would do the same.
Back then every server used its donations to go toward server costs. Today almost every server out there is only here to make money. I have seen a guy on a live stream say that he will whitelist people for 5 dollars a person. He made around $1200 from that and he doesn't even check on the server. No matter how laggy or greifed it is. Almost every server has these "super special donation ranks!!! Donate $20 and get [email protected][email protected]!". They even make people advertise the server and spam it everywhere so the people can rank up while the server makes money.
Don't get me wrong, anti-greif is a wonderful thing. But sometimes it can just ruin a server. In the old days greifers would be a "challenge" to escape from. You would always have some hidden chest in the ground or very secretly hidden somewhere. You would make settlements far or hidden from spawn and include traps. With all the Anti-Greif plugins out there now there is no longer a chance for a greifer to get farther than breaking one block. Every area with 500 blocks of spawn is protected. Some servers you even have to BUY places to build! That is a total rip-off because that's not Minecraft then. On your singleplayer world do you have to pay someone to build in a certain spot? No! But having no Anti-Greif brings up the other issue.
The community has seriously changed too. The community no longer has its fun old players anymore. Instead its full of greifing 8 year old's. Some proffesional greifers even go as far as making a super advanced hacking client for Minecraft. The community today is composed of the following: Greedy or in-Mature server owners, 8 year old's, 8 year old greifer's, Proffesional greifer's, and only a few real Minecraft players. I'm not sure if the community will ever change but with great fame comes great loss. In this case the loss was real Minecraft players. I mean look at all the private servers out there that people have started. All the real Minecraft players have no other choice than to make their own servers.
Server owners, You don't need insane amounts of money or plugins! I understand 3 or 10 plugins but over 20 of them? You dont need to be "super famous" because all that does is make a big hassle and completely ruin the fun. Also advertise a lot loss. Nobody likes reading 20 comments on a video about a server. Make sure that you have mature admins and mods. A lot of people find that an issue too. I have seen hundreds of stories of people getting greifed then banned by an admin. Some admins don't even care about greifing anymore.
SMP needs to change now or else we will be stuck with "SUPER PVP 400 SLOT SUPER SERVERS! DONATEZ NOW!" servers.
Enjoy these pics of early Minecraft servers:
I hope this helped put some sense out there.

I decided to punch one, and they got big red eyes, and ate me.Posted in: Survival Mode
