    This is really helpful! Thank-you. But, I'm such a newb. Got stuck at putting .jar file into the spigot buildtools folder (where exactly?) and then running terminal (are you on a Mac?). Wondering if you have seen someone do a video of this? Can you point me in the right direction? I would be most grateful! Momibelle

    If anyone wants to run this on spigot 1.9 and later you will need to remap some legacy methods as mentioned here in this post (under craftbukkit).

    Basically, download the jar here, on bukkitdev (should be named Announcement.jar). Then put the jar in the spigot buildtools folder and run this command from a terminal (command prompt, etc.):

    java -jar BuildData/bin/SpecialSource-2.jar map -m CraftBukkit/deprecation-mappings.csrg -i Announcement.jar -o Announcement-1.9.jar

    Then use the Announcement-1.9.jar instead of the previous file and everything should work fine! I've done this in order in continue using this plugin on my server, no issues so far.

    This appears to have broken in Spigot 1.9:

    And I know it says 1.0.3 in the traceback, but I just confirmed it is the same plugin file that's posted as 1.0.4 here. I think you forgot to update the version number in the code.

    @everidge1999: Go

    I'll second this, it's kind of annoying to have it not work from console actually :-) This is actually the first plugin I've run into that the commands didn't work from console, so it surprised me.

    Have you tried using the permission announcement.receive?

    For some reason, the announcements only show up for opped players. Is there a way to fix this?
