    @JuanPZV: Go

    I need error messages or I can't help. I've been running it perfect on my server for several weeks now and haven't lost prisoners, jails, or got an errors. When you run the plugin I need you to report errors or I can't fix them when I don't know what they are.

    @dunem666: Go @Sarut: Go

    That will be disabled in the newest versions, I will be uploaded a beta very soon.

    I luv your plugin. But can you please update or disable the metrics callback http warning please?

  • Avatar of dunem666 dunem666 Aug 02, 2014 at 17:28 UTC - 0 likes

    PLEASE! How can I disable Metrics within jail????

    At the moment its causing people to disconnect because the metrics callback HTTP has been down for ages, the server freezes when waiting for response!

    I'm with @pilvimaa it seems to be a good plugin, but i can't do it works. At the morning I had the "you don't have permission" error, now I get "There are currently no jails" with the last Snapshoot. Please @graywolf336 , Fix it as soon as you can!, I saw videos of your plugin and I Love it! :(

    @pilvimaa: Go

    Which storage system are you using? I'm going to guess sqlite? For commands, the old commands are still in there but are planned to get removed in the coming weeks. As for how long it took versus how long you can do something like it, you're right. I could redo this entire thing in that amount of time if I dedicated myself to the development of it and not worked on other things.

    I tried the beta and ... I don't even want to start writing a bug reports because it was so obviously, completely and utterly broken that it's depressing. Jails were not imported, tons of crashes on console, could not create any jails with any of the commands, permissions were not working (or documented properly) and commands seemed to overlap and conflict with each other.

    It would probably take me 2-3 weeks to code a plugin for my server with similar functionality. And after waiting for a working version for Jail for 6 months I might just do that.
