    Hi there! Is anyone able to help me... Added the plugin (faction) gone through the config to try fix my problem, still cant seem to.. So, when you join the server it has put everyone in (im guessing the same faction) because when you try hit someone it says 'you cant attack your faction members'... but none of us have added or even created a faction so I dont know why its saying this, as well as it usually shows that faction ur in when you type in chat, it doesn't. Now I dont know if that has to be enabled orr what, Any help would be great!!

    I created a ticket a couple of days ago but no response so I will try it here, Im using the api event 'EventFactionsCreate' but it gets called even when the user has no money when te amount is (default) 100. If the lengt of the faction name is incorrect the event isn't called so I can't use the event for my plugin :( please help. More information can be found on the github with the versions I have.

    For any of you there that want to have the 1.8 combat mechanics in 1.9 (which tends to go quite well with factions) I have made a plugin for that, which you can find here: (http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/oldcombatmechanics/)

    I do not get any financial gain from this plugin so I do not consider this advertising, it is here to help those who want it.

    I'm starting up a beta 1.7.3 server and wanted to try out Factions. I got the plugin here, but it disables itself because I don't have the gson.jar file. Where can I get that?

    Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.

    @AlexanderZocktat @MrBacon3

    Massive Core is a huge file. Sometimes the server can let the jar file be in the plugins file but it wont work. Maybe try deleting some plugins?
