    Heh yeah, got burnt out on Minecraft for a little bit and took a break to code another side project unrelated to Minecraft I had been wanting to do for a while. Got that somewhat accomplished and got back into coding Minecraft stuff. :) Let me know how the testing goes!

    Glad to hear!! :D I can't promise it is 100% bug free, so when you run into problems please report them to the Github repository that way I can keep the Jail 2.x and Jail 3.0 issues separate.

    Let me know how it goes for you.

    @Balgros: Go

    Which version? If it is 3.0, try:

    /jail createcell

    Hey @graywolf336

    The Command /jailcreatecells is not working. I get -> "Option only takes one value: cannot use [createcells]: player pl -p value : the player's name." So i guess he is trying to jail a player. instead of creating a cell?

    thx for your awesome plugin.
