    I wouldn't mind testing it. I was also wondering if there was a way to jail multiple people to one cell, or maybe to one jail without cells. I want to turn my old server map into a role playing map where everyone who logs in gets jailed by a command block, but I need them to all go to the same place without cells filling up.

    I don't mean to be pushy, but you said a week about a month ago. I'm getting antsy! This is my favorite plugin. Is there a more accurate ETA you can give us?

    Hi guys! And how else can you arrest automatically change the group? I really need it. Through ExecutedCommandsOnJail fails, Prisoner tags is not working :(

    If you can do in the next version, so that the player does not clean inventory in the escape or the player can only take from his chest. Private chat inside the jail. Auto unjail after a certain time to jail not full. Also I am waiting for a reply to the post #960. That I need to change their group and show the players in the tab with the prefix "prisoner"

    P.S. Sorry for my language, I write by google translate.

    In general, a good plugin, however fiddled with them 2 days to properly adjust for your server. First there was a problem with the signs. These signs were not saved in the file. Configured to sqlite, cameras are not created and an error in the console. Connected mysql, everything is fine. Then he discovered that the escape and security is not working. Created with the help of escape and liberation spawner with another plugin. I have a prison with 248 cells and all the chests in the same room. The player to escape from prison can go to the store and take your items. But here the problem, the player can look at other people's chests and take the items. After the escape of the player missing items taken from the chest and returns what is left in his chest (if the player picked all the while releasing left blank).
