    The file folder that usually is created when plugins are used does not appear in 1.14.4. I'd love if you updated it!

    Hello! im just wondering are you gonna support UltraPermissions?

    k thxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx (spigot characters limits are sh*t)

    Super Plugin aber bitte füge den CloudNet Support hinzu so das er perfekt funktioniert. Wenn man sich nickt das dann sowohl im Tab als auch im Chat aus auch über seinem Skin der Name geändert wird. Vielen Dank

    I think the idea is pretty cool, but its not working the best, i now have Member in front of my name instead of Owner, while im unnicked

    Also this shows up in console on kitpvp:

    The plugin works great, other than the fact that chunks get unloaded, and upon warping to different worlds changes the NTE prefix back. I'm not sure if this is just my spigot jar, or it's the plugin itself. If you could add a way to reload the prefixes every time someone changes a world, that would be great. (Or you could add commands like "nte player %player% prefix [prefix]" so that it could be compatible for all types of plugins.

    If it helps here are the plugins I use for permissions & nametags

    Super Plugin Würde gerne das Update auf CloudNet haben. Man wird genickt Aber leider wird ein Kommplett anderer Nick in der TAB angezeigt und im Chat wird der Prefix nicht gesetzt. Würde dich gerne Unterstützen. Mit freundlichen Grüßen hoffe es hilft dir weiter. Und das schnell das mit CloudNet gefixt wird denn es ist wirklich Super das Plugin

    Nice plugin!
    Hey, please add bungee support so we don't need to add MySQL.
    Thank you for being such a nice developer and keep updating the plugin!
