    Oh my god thank you so much for the update! Before I was getting an error when doing /nicklist and /relname so I couldn't fully add the command because staff wouldn't be able to tell who the nicked player is. Not I can finally add it to my paid rank thank you so much!!

    Version: 7.1-SNAPSHOT
    Sehr sehr gutes Plugin, ich brauch mich auch nicht groß zu beschweren.
    Allerdings nach einer Bedwars Runde und nach 10 Sekunden genickt in der ''Endlobby'' stoppt der Server, somit werden auch die Permissions hochgeladen ... das passt nicht ganz da ich dann selbst unnickt einen Spieler Prefix im Chat habe ...
    Ich weiß nicht ob es an BetterNick liegt oder an was anderes allerdings hab ich zu sagen das ich es mit mehreren Chat-Plugins und Permissions System versucht habe...
    Wäre sehr nett wenn du mir da helfen könntest, dann auch die 5 Sterne :)
