    I want to be able to charge a player for using a sign, what I want to be able to to achieve that when the click the sign it deducts money from their server balance, and then execute a command to give them enjin points, so effectively they can buy extra enjin points using server economy plugin.

    Can this be done? if so how do I do it?

    Thank You.

    CommandIt is essentially abandoned, yes. Doesn't mean that others can't continue it though if they download the source.

    CommandSigns is deprecated, but I'll still provide support if it's broken. No feature requests though.

    Please PM me if it's broken as I no longer have a Minecraft server.

    You say that this plugin is deprecating soon, but cmdit ("actual" project) is abandoned. So this means, that this plugin is abandoned too?
