PlayerStatusSigns - Have a sign tell you who is on and off
Version: v0.4.1

PlayerStatusSigns (PSS) lets users create signs that will change when players log in, our, or go /afk.

PSS supports language translation: Simply edit the "lang" file to change anything PSS says..

PSS has been translated into French, Brazilian Portuguese, Dutch, Spanish, and Polish.

PSS supports and is tested with PermissionsEx. PSS also supports default Bukkit Permissions! And will support any permissions plugin that does the same. PSS also tentatively supports Permissions 2.7.4 and 3.1.x, but is not tested against these.

Usernames 15 or 16 characters in length will not be colored in order to fit them on the sign.

To create a PSS sign: You must first have the appropriate permission (if a permissions plugin is being used), or have ops (if a permissions plugin is not being used).

Simply create a sign with "[PSS]" (without quotes) in the first line, and a player name in the second. If that player is currently online, you may use partial name matching, if they are not you must spell their exact name out completely and caps-correct.

A visual explanation

If you translate this plugin I would be very grateful if you would send me your lang file so that I may share it with others in this post.
