I do this in my free time, so if you like my work, I'd be completely grateful for any donation you can send me. With this I pay the server where store my files and project. These donations motivate me to continue adding features and keep it free for all.

    @ShadowCrafter829: Go

    You have too be careful with decompiled plugins unless you have the legitimate raw code. Otherwise when a plugin is compiled there is code added into the plugin class files that has been executed by the compiler.

    If you would like a custom designed website message me on skype @ HiddenAether

    I am attempting to update this plugin to Spigot-1.8, but am unable to figure out what "Announcer.access$108" and "Announcer.access$102" mean. I am fairly new to java so I don't know old code (Which I am assuming this is). If anybody can help, I would really appreciate, for I love this plugin and I want it to live beyond its current compatibility.

    @blueheadedtiger_: Go This plugin works on 1.7.2-1.7.5. I have not tested any versions past 1.7.5, but it will probably work as all it really does is insert text into the chat occasionally.
