    I tried what you said but then it wouldn't even recognize worldedit commands, so I tried it again and I'm right back where I started.

    I just had the same thing, but have fixed it: Disable the plugin, delete its data folder, reload, re-enable the plugin, reload. Worked for me.

    So, I really am in the need of using WorldEdit. But for some reason, As there are complains of Spigot I am using CraftBukkit 1.7.9. The plugin worked, Amazingly at first. But then it just bugged out. If I do wand, It simply does nothing. None of the WorldEdit commands worked. I changed the versions, servers etc. Still didn't help a bit. Similar to Spigot issues. Looking forward for this being solved, Thanks! -This issue is been happening for about a week or so!

    Having an issue like @Omega3395,

    When I try to do wand, nothing happens. If I spawn in a wooden axe manually, it lets me select the area but can't do set or anything. I am using Spigot 1.8 and it was working fine before, but it's been around 3-5 days I've been having this issue.

    When did this occur? I'm running spigot from about 2 weeks ago with worldedit and not seeing this issue.

    From the Download page:

    Before upgrading: If you are upgrading from WorldEdit 5.x, you may find that some plugins are incompatible with WorldEdit. If you find that to be the case, you can downgrade to the latest 5.x version without incident.

    Code is code, it is not pizza...
