    Using 0.9b4 on 1.7.10 and I've tested it for 5-6 hours now, works great. Thanks for this plugin, it's awesome!

    I have a few suggestions for this plugin, that would really help with how I want to set it up for my server:

    - deposit / withdraw counter. A way for me to check how much of one type of item has a player deposited or withdrawn from a network, and a way to issue commands based on this statictics (e.g. if a player deposits at least 10 diamonds, a command would fire up, saying "good job")

    - a permission node or some other way for players to add their own deposit chest to an existing network (e.g. player "Steve" would create a new network, with a chest that collects diamonds. Then player "Alex" would create a new deposit chest, that would deposit diamonds into Steve's network). I know this can be done with commands, but I want ALL players on my server to be able to only deposit items into a "community" chest (each player should be able to create a deposit chest in their home), but they should not be able to withdraw (so making them members of a network doesn't work).

    Thanks for your hard work, and if any or both of these features would be added, I would be really grateful.

    I dont see anything in the code that would preclude it from running on 1.7.10. I simply haven't tested it. Feel free to try it. I think it goes without saying though, make backups! Report back your findings if you would please.

    Any chance of getting a 1.7.10 compatible version?

    It would be cool if you can add Slimefun and STB Support

    Beta 0.9b4 is uploaded for approval. Should fix an issue with LWC detection that prevents creating autosort chests if LWC is not installed.

    If you are using the beta make sure you read the changelog about permissions.

    If its still not working use debug mode 1 and test. If you still cant figure it out there may be a bug, make a ticket with your permissions info inside.

    I have a problem that I cannot make sort chests, drop chests, or withdraw chests, I can only create a Drop sign. Could anyone tell me what im doing wrong? When I try to make those chests, a blank sign is created

    Great plugin though it bypasses LWC protections which is fairly bad. Not sure if this is due to the more recent LWC locks chests by username and UUID and this plugin isn't up-to-date with UUID's or not.
