    You with stacking crash issues, do you use Coreprotect? If you do, and have worldedit logging on, that's what's causing it. Turn it off, and it'll work fine.

    I however have some problems with /undo, if I use a brush with a mask, when I undo sometimes it seems to forget that I had mask and places a brush-stroke instead of undoing the masked action. Very weird. On WE 5.4.2 and bukkit 1.3.2 R2

    Why do the new versions of worledit for 1.3+ cause a server to crash with small worldedit's.  During 1.2.5 I was able to do 1 million block worldedits and stack for 20 times before any lag showed up.  Now I'm doing 50k worldedit's and stacks of 2 and I horribly crash our server...  Something's wrong with you're code, because reguarding the above stats, Something's changed for the worse...

    Your "Fill" command causes the server to crash way too easily. There are times, I type "/fill 42 100" and not even a depth, and it still crashes. Sometimes its less than a hundred. Its even crashed when i typed 20 for a distance. Is there a way you could make this more stable? So it don't crash my server when I use it?

    I have this issue with my server where everyone mod and above can use the navigation compass, except me. I am a mod, and nobody else has a problem with the compass. I tried running a fresh jar file, and nothing changed. What, client-side, would conflict with the navigation compass?

    And please do not add anymore features or commands.

    since this plugin has been taken over from sk89q many of the features have been either diminished or the commands have been changed.

    this plugin has been working fine for over a year for me now but all these new "upgrades/updates" are sort of annoying and seem pointless and add more complications for updating.

    I liked it better when the plugin was just maintained rather than in dev. This plugin should be considered a finished product that only needs updating
