    So I'm having a lot of trouble with the <randomname>, whenever I put it on a block it works but once I try to use it it gives me the message "CommandSign text must be removed first". Anybody have any suggestions, I've tried everything in game and looked it up as well. This is really frustrating I would really appreciate some help.

    I used the vanilla command, '/effect <player> [effect] [duration]' and the output message says, "Given BLINDNESS (ID 15) x 0 to <player> for [duration] seconds" and I don't want the players to see the output message so I tested by giving myself the effect via server console and I was happy that the output message was not shown in-game. But when I put the command, '/cmds 1 /#effect <name> blindness 2 1' it displays the output message even though I put the "#" symbol which means the command is being sent from the console but when I do it from the actual console the message is not displayed in-game. Is the '#' variable really being sent from the console?

    I cannot load it. I put the .jar inside the plugins folder and restarts my server, but it won't load.

    It worked before!

    Edit: Never mind, it was Vault's fault :) I love this plugin!

    @xOmniDerpx: Go

    It was probably a plugin you installed.

    Help!!! CommandSigns has been working perfectly for a long time on my server. However, I noticed this morning that none of my CommandSigns were functioning. I checked each one, and none of them were CommandSigns. Nobody on my server did anything that would've made this happen. I am using up-to-date CommandSigns. There were no error messages in Console log. Before I spend hours redoing all the signs, has this been happening to anyone else, and why could this be happening?

    Hello, I can't use certain commands when I pass <name> as a parameter. I can do /strike <name> successfully but I can't do '/tp <name> 50 50 50' or '/pex users <name> group set Member' I have already tried '*', '#', and '^' but it does nothing. When I print out the line it prints '/tp OoplaDingo 50 50 50' successfully but when using a command it just sits there. Is the problem my fault? How can I fix this? Edit: How stupid of me, you put the '#' after the slash '/#pex users <name> group set Member'
