    Soon (tm), I have a version on the burner that converts to UUID but I need to test it more to make sure its working correctly before I upload it. The source for it is up on my github if you want to self compile it.

    I'm really looking forward to this plugin being updated for (Spigot) 1.8! When can we expect an update?

    hey, love your plugin, we use it on our server

    but is there any chance you could add a round robin sorting feature?

    something like a sorting option on the 4th line of the deposit chest R:# where the # is the chest priority (if R:2 the input blocks are split evenly to all the sorting chests with priority 2 of that network)

    Both problems fixed, lol cant believe a missed the config thing.

    As for Sponge... You should look into updating on, they've been around for a long time, have a huge community, allow plugin uploading, and are just finishing up testing for the 1.8 update with no DMCA'ed code. It's probably going to be a long time for Sponge.

    @OmegaGenesis: Go

    Proximity of chests can be set via the config.

    I'm not sure how you get that anyone can use it. I'm guessing you haven't read the plugin help pages, or maybe your permissions plugin is not working correctly. In any case, with a correctly set up permissions plugin, permissions can be set to block users from creating networks, amongst other things. Furthermore, LWC can be used to block users from using chests. See permissions help page for more info on Autosort permissions.

    I admit Drop Sign permissions are an issue but I wont be adding new features to the bukkit version of this plugin. Bukkit is for all intents and purposes a zombie api, dead but still walking around. So, any new features I add into Autosort will be incorporated in the sponge version of this plugin. No eta on that because there is no eta on sponge.

    Autosort for bukkit is basically in a state where I will only fix critical bugs.

    Things needed: 1. Permission to even use the plugin, as it stands anyone can use it. 2. The ability to set a distance between the deposit chests and the network. As someone said below, you can place a chest anywhere and deposit (or make this configurable per rank).

    Hello, i really love this Plugin, and i'll use it on my PvP server! The only Problem i have is the sign that u can place everywhere and u just can drop ur items to it. Could i add a way to disable this? Would be very nice :/
