    Is this updated for Spigot 1.8.8? Asking because the newest version of factions keeps throwing me errors, but version 2.7.5 seems to work fine (other than the fact that the /f disband in admin mode doesn't work and throws errors).

    How can territory messages be disabled from showing up as screen titles with factions 2.8.0?

    Again it has occurred that every faction balance has randomly been reset to 0 for no apparent reason. We are running the latest Factions, FactionsTax and Factions Dynmap release direct from spigot. This has happened twice now, it's an awful, awful occurrence every time. We had to disable factions being disbanded on not paying their taxes because the first time this happened, everyone disbanded! Please look into this.

    @Triliton: Go

    Disband it! /f disband <faction>

    You may have to be in admin mode to do this.

    Want a faster response from me? Follow me and tweet me on twitter! @_markeh BFAK:90607746,6bd5d8183f15ef6bbc8c5469c97e0a66d662d410c11146dc88dbd1a9a0a8f471

    Do you mean to reload the mstore configuration files? This is done automatically - you don't have to reload. Settings will be applied within seconds of the file being edited.

    I really loved factions, the last time I owned a server a few years ago (wow, time passes so fast) and right now i wanted to start a new one, just to see, that CB will die out :'( Before I set up a server, there is one important question: I know there is a spogit build available, but will factions come to sponge, too ?

    @snipershotmaster: Go

    Just add it in the plugin.yml?

    Is there no other way? Could essentials have anything to do with it?
