    Are factions compatible with worldguard? As in if i claim some zone in worldguard will be players unable to overwrite claim on that zone with factions claiming?

    I'm not seeing anywhere how to create a safezone in the commands or configuration page,could something be done to address that? I have version 2.2.1.

    Guys, shut the hell up and just embrace the new version.
    It's perfectly fine, so quit moaning about something that isn't broke.

    @H8llfire: Go

    I still use Factions and it works completely fine, it's still available in the Bukkit files.

    What I don't get is why the developers decided to make a brilliant plugin into an, well, bad software? In terms of Computer Scientists: This Plugin lacks any kind of ease of use.
    Bring 1.6 back ;)

    @kezzawozza: Go

    The config files for Factions are in the main folder of your server in a folder called mstore.

    Factions is absolutely not loading complete config files for me. i've stopped server, loaded Mcore into plugins, then Factions, restart, finally now getting config folders but with very little in them. I've heard on many postings that factions is not working since 1.6.2; is that right? I'm on 1.6.4 now and really need this. I'm running a spigot server networked with bungeecord, essentials, worldguard, mcmmo, but I can't see how that would be a problem. Are others having this problem? I'm not willing to strip out my plugins to reload this one on its own, as some have suggested as a fix.

    I found a semi-fix for that: put this in the config:

    But replace it with:
    #format: '<{DISPLAYNAME}> {MESSAGE}'
      format: '&a[{factions_roleprefix}&r&a{factions_nameforce}&r&a] [{GROUP}]&r{DISPLAYNAME}&r&7:&r {MESSAGE}'

    or if you are not using a prefix with something like GroupManager:  
    #format: '<{DISPLAYNAME}> {MESSAGE}'
      format: '&4[{factions_roleprefix}&r&4{factions_nameforce}&r&4] &r&7[{GROUP}] &r{DISPLAYNAME}&r&7:&r {MESSAGE}'

    with the #format: '<{DISPLAYNAME}> {MESSAGE}' portions, just add the # but don't replace the whole line.
