    Love this plugin. Hate to see the way it's dying off. But luckily he left the source. Someone compiled it for 1.8 maven in the forks on github but when I try to compile it I get abstract method error, build failure.

    I urge someone to continue the development of this plugin. It's so perfect. Here's to hoping for a 1.8 build.

    Hey, I just got a problem. Some commands on signs just disappear. I bound a command to a sign. I logged off. A few hours later I logged on, and a lot of commandsigns just disappeared. The command on the signs were gone. This only happens to new signs. I added another line to an old sign. When I logged on once again the second line was gone, whilst the first line is still there. Is there a maximum amount of signs that you can have, or is this just a bug in the plugin?

    This is a great plugin but on my server people can only activate the sign by punching it, rather than right clicking, does anyone have a solution to my problem?

    Nothing beats this plugin. Been using it forever. Still working on BuildTools spigot 1.8.3 build.

    Although it's stopped listening to pressure plates and doors etc for obvious reasons. Here's the errors.

    If you are running a 1.7.10 server use v1.9.3.1 :) Updating to the newest version made all of my command signs produce errors and not run.. I simply went back to and it works perfectly fine again.
