    with 1.7.10, when opening offline player ender chest, change will not be saved?!?

    I can open offline player inventories just fine, except EnderChests. Also, i'm unable to silently open chests.

    Tested under Spigot 1.7.10-R0.1-SNAPSHOT #1649 + Spigot Update 20141113a + Carbon @ Java 8 Update 25 x64

    Is it possible to make permissions not case sensitive? (Like with String.equalsIgnoreCase(OtherString))

    @lishid: Go

    I'm not sure about all that but according to MD_5, the owner/Author its not going anywhere. I made SirFaizdat a sample resource page and they deleted it so you as the author have to upload your plugin yourself...BTW he had 15 downloads in 10 minutes when I posted his resource! I hope he joins over there too, I hate to lose these awesome plugins of yours! All I did when I made his sample page was basically copy and paste everything from his Bukkit page...Its very easy to do. Msg me if you go over there so I can bookmark your resource over there Please!

    @MCTylerPVP: Go

    Isn't spigot mostly based on Bukkit, and thus contains a fair bunch of wovereness's code (Thus will go down with the DMCA?)
