    A sign with a command and 4 parameters doesn't seem to work (EX: /mobarena join 1). Is it a bug?

    Working perfectly fine in 1.8.7 (Spigot)!

    Such a great plugin, you can achieve so much with it. Keep up the updates. I recommend you put the plugin on spigot resources and charge for it, I would happily pay.

    @Disorbs: Go

    on the first line add (timeinseconds) example: 1: 600 2: $20000 3: @VIP 4: /^kit vip 5: \Congrats! You paid $20,000 for VIP kit! Come back again in 10 minutes to use again!

    If the player tries to click the sign again it'll come up with the default message saying how the sign will not work until X seconds

    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.
