    Version: 7.3-SNAPSHOT
    Plugin that works perfectly well, only worries, when have used PermissionEX permission system and it definitely adds prefixes and suffix when have executed the command / nick, That is when when have changed of rank, its changes on the TabList and the scoreboard but not in the chat, its keeping the old prefix issued by the /nick command. And its fact is bug that in MySQL mode, it does not when have not put it in MySQL mode, possible to fix this bug?

    Hello. I have some problems with my Tablist Plugin. I've got the OwnerRank, but i would like to nick, than it shows "Owner : ". In the Config i have set the Prefix "Spieler : " (German word for "Player"). Here is the Link to my Tablist Plugin:

    If you can add support for this plugin i will be happy & you got 5 Stars
