    Guys i figured out how to get rid of the icon!! well sort of i found out how it works soo what you have to do is put this command in /motdcicon then it will say error after you put in /motdcicon put a bunch of random crap without spaces. like i did this:

    /motdcicon 8hwtngfi3h8nreignwe4ohweujn

    type something like this ingame and it will say internal error but thats a good thing also make sure you have your server icon ready before you do this srry i didnt say it before. now type something like that in a few time like 3-5 times.after stop and start your server. for me it changed the motd color icon to my custom server icon. idk if it would erase it for good but im going to figure out some other ways to erase the server icon just incase this method doesnt work. also will be making videos soon for you guys who are confused

    WTF! I Cannot remove the damn ICON! It's annoying, it's stupid, a pain in the ass, and I've uninstalled the plugin and it is still there! How do you remove the stupid thing? You know what just remove the damn icon shit. This is just fucking bullshit, can't even fucking get it off my fucking server! Why the fuck did you even add the icon? It's not even your fucking server and you want to add an icon that looks like shit to it. Like WTF.
