    @SirFloofy: Go

    It's true, is happening to me too.

    EDIT: My fault, touching things on a custom plugin.

    This plugin is going down-hill.

    Hello, I understand that previously factions used to have a protectfromofflineexplosions and offlineexplosionsdelay option in the config file. I cannot find this anymore in the latest factions configuration files. Is there a way anymore to make it so if a user logs out, their faction is not protected from offline explosions for 10 minutes, then after 10 minutes of the player being logged out it is protected?

    Thanks for any help!

    How can I set the offline explosions flag to true for all my players factions?

    I have had factions on my server for a long time, and I am running an iMac but I can't install java 7... is there any other way I can install factions without java 7?

    Long time site user and server owner (which, I might add, I have been doing for free for quite some time.), first time commenting.

    I have recently updated my server to 1.6.4, as well as CraftBukkit 1.6.4, and both of the Factions.jar files you can download for the current version of MC do not work. Not sure if there's conflicting plugins, or a problem with the current versions. Never had an issue with this plugins up until just now.

    If anyone can help meh out at ALL that would be great! -fireblast117

    I have also seen that message on my server @Cassio88

    Documentation for this updated version is horrible. I've done the permissons as best I could, however have some problems. Regular players are able to create factions, I want to limit that to my staff only. The "builders" do not have that permission and I have even negated it in permissionsex just to make sure. Can you provide a list of basic permissions to use? Yes, i've seen the full list, but what happened to that permission that just gave them the basic perms and no creating? thanks,
