    For Factions Mcore 7.0.x for 1.7.2 and Mcore 6.9.x for 1.6.4

    At first, factions is running fine. But after a few days of restarting.

    Somehow there are 2x safezone factions and somehow there are 2x warzone factions...

    Warzone is normally all red text related. this new duplicated Warzone faction is all green text.

    1 of them you can Join if your OP, and 1 of them you can't.

    I also noticed that there is an issue with default permissions. Normally 5 to 10 server restarts before this faction duplication glitch. There is also a glitch with faction perms. Apparently default faction perms change to what ever the faction.jar contains. Also any perms that any current faction attempt to do after this default perm glitch... They will receive an error saying, " Internal Error from server when performing this command" ^ or something like that^

    Hopefully This can Be a Quick fix in the near future. ---- You don't even have to make any Manual edits to the factions .jar or folders or .yml's And the glitch will still occur. Thats how I know its not just an error with my settings.

    Also I noticed a few Big servers having the same issues. So thats how I figure this is not just an issue with me specifically.

    @Cayorion: Go

    @Brettflan: Go

    Where is the option to disable certain faction names from being created?

    Where did the option go to disable server broadcasting of faction creation and description?

    Why is the wilderness considered a faction that people can enemy?

    Where did worldguard integration go?

    Why can factions neutral enemy factions without the other factions consent? Because of this, there is NO POINT in blocking commands in enemy land when they can just neutral the faction whenever they want. And if you block them in neutral land... then nobody can use the commands in the wilderness because for some unknown reason you decided to make the wilderness an actual faction...

    I recently switched my small private server (1.7.2) back to factions because that is the version my friends and I are used to and prefer. However, now I cant seem to figure out how to disable mobs from spawning in the warzone. Before I downgraded to, I used /f flag warzone to set all the stuff, but now I cant figure out how to do it. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks.

    Can anyone link me to the old factions where everything was less complex. I hate this new factions with mcstore and mcore and all that. Thanks

    @SaintBatman: Go

    Firstly you need to turn admin mode on so type /f admin. Next you can claim a radius by typing /f claim (1-5) safezone Or for warzone the same thing but replace safezone with warzone. A more precise way of doing this is typing /f autoclaim safezone or warzone and then just walkaround. To turn autoclaim off type the same thing (/f autoclaim safezone or warzone) Hope this helped :)

    If you need anymore help contact me on skype: buklaoo987

    I have a problem with my server, when someone tries to join a faction it says they are a member of Wilderness? Does anyone know why this happens

    Since Factions has moved to mcore dependency a LOT of shit has been removed from the configs...
