    @graywolf336: Go

    Well i have installed it, set everything up and everything goes well. The only thing that doesn't appear to be working are the signs. It keeps saying "Empty Cell" instead of: <player name> <jailtime> <with a reason> <reason>

    It does broadcast the jailed player's name now :)

    So hopefully you can help me with the signs :D

    Oh i do have 1 question, did the permissions stayed the same as 2.6.5? As i can't find the permissions list :D

    thanks again!

    @Dappiephy: Go

    If you don't have many prisoners and jails, then yes as the new version is working better and also supports UUIDs.

    Hi There!

    First of all awesome mod! I really like it and it is easy to use :)

    I just ran into one "problem" whenever i set "Broadcast Jail Message: true" in the chat the player name doesn't show up. It shows like:

    Prisoner <Player> jailed. Reason: xxxxx

    I looked over all the files.. but i can't seem to figure out what is going wrong :( Could you maybe please help me in the right direction? xD

    Thank you very much already!

    That's a link at the top of the page under the tab "Files" which is right next to "Overview", so I wouldn't think it would be required to put on this site.
