    This is a nice plugin :D ,but I think you can improve the plugin to let it has more function. just like let the player can't use the other command but can use login command. and set the area (like a room),the player can move in that area but can't in outside.

    Is there a way to make it: " You have been jailed by (player) for (time) because (reason)."?

    I want people to know how long they have been jailed for and dont know if its possible ?

    Thanks for the simple plugin!

    Also people are losing their inventory when they get jailed. I dont see anything in the config, is this a bug?

    Oh on a side note. Perhaps someday we can have more than one Jail location.. Our jail is a Prison actually with 22 cells. We prefer tossing people in their own private cells. One cell is actually a Padded Room.

    If you want a development server in a Bungee Cloud, I would be happy to offer you one for free.

    We are running your Jail on our Bungee servers. I just move the player I wish to jail to my lobby server then /jail them. To make it easier for me, I plan on using the MyCommand plugin to stack a set of commands which will allow me to set up something like (/dcjail $name $reason $time) and have it go out and grab the player, yank him to the lobby and jail him for me with one command.

    Let me know how we can help you out Skyost.
