    I will rate this review 5 stars because I like stars. Robo seems like a pretty nice guy and has deserved this review.

    "Reading all the reviews gave me a good chuckle. Thanks to all the silly kids with 4 or less stars
    1) 1.12.2 Support? The plugin works on 1.12.2 just fine. If the dev so chooses to not update for a previous version of MC, why should the dev lose stars? How is that fair. Im sure if you find a major bug Robo will gladly fix it.
    2) Somethings not working for you? Maybe talk to the dev first before rating. He has a discussion tab as well as a GitHub issue page that he responds to quite quickly (I've posted several issues on a couple of his plugins, and he always responds quickly... VOUCH!)

    Time for my review:
    I have been using this plugin for a couple of years now. When I first started using it I found a few things a little tricky. I have to admit the documentation on it seems a bit scattered. That may be the fault of passed devs, Im really not sure. But i do know that Robo is very busy. I myself feel like I know basically everything I need to know about this plugin. But for future users and newbies, in my opinion I feel the documentation/wiki needs to be updated a bit to reflect how the plugin currently works.

    That aside. I freaking love this plugin. I honestly cant imagine a survival server without it.
    Ive seen many servers rules "You are not allowed to grief"... I have a firm belief that why put a rule for something that you can just prevent? Well GP takes care of that.

    From a player perspective its STUPID easy to use. The first time I played on a GP server (before I ever used it) I watched the video (as was instructed for me to do) and in that 3 minutes and 10 seconds, I learned everything I needed to know to keep my builds/inventories safe. it literally cant get any easier than this plugin.

    When players complain its too hard to use or they cant figure it out, watch the damn video, its 3 minutes that will give you all the details.

    I dunno what else to say, I love this plugin."

    its a version review.... you're making yourself look like a tit.. if the version doesnt get better or match up to the previous version its got worse has it not? if you're unable to use the one plugin among your hundreds of others that work, its got worse?

    now dont get me wrong i absolutely LOVE this plugin with a passion an have been using it for many years, this kid triggered me out of all the stupid comments...

    that being said, i could not get it to work on my 1.12.2 spigot server BUT there are alot of other versions that i havnt tried that might work...

    Thanks for the update!

      Reviews are not for support, please see the red text for support.

      Older versions of the plugin exist for older versions of Minecraft.

      If you have beef with a reviewer, please don't use the reviews to "respond" to them; instead, take it to their profile or discussion thread. Docking a star because of other reviewers doesn't sound like a fair evaluation of the plugin itself.

    Ho can I forgot to rate this wonderful plugin??? It's one of my must-have!

    As a player, one of my first attempts on a server before to join. Mainly for its efficient, easy to use and powerful claim system.

    As an admin, this is very easy to configure for lots of server it just works "out of the box", has lots of possibilities and is extremely stable.

    This plugin is just perfect. Please continue to keep it working across the future MC version. Thanks for sharing it with the community!

    Have used this plugin for years and it has never let me down.
    The plugin is updated in a timely with new mc versions.
    Can't say much else except its a must have to any server that needs some land protection.

    Very good plugin, works great. But, you can add some section or maybe permission/command for the accrued blocks per group. Like default: 1000 / VIP: 2000. The Addon dont work.

      Thanks! The addon GPAccruals should work; if there are issues, mention BillyGalbreath in the discussion thread

    Works really well for basic protections for players, however, when getting into player builds where players share villagers, the only way for players to do so requires them to make sub-claims around the villagers and make sure there are no chests above or below those villagers. This really limits builds for player shops on SMP style servers. The only way to prevent this is to completely unprotect villager trades, which creates its own separate problems.
    Points for how good it protects, but lack of flexibility in what's protected with what permissions lowers my opinion of it.
    1. RoboMWM
      Author's Response
      "Flexibility" can be augmented via the API with addons. There's already a ton of people complaining about the already-existing feature creep in GP.

      If you want to know more about the design philosophy of GP please ask instead of assuming with a review...

    Works, but RestoreNature, RestoreNatureAggressive and RestoreNatureFill is still not working and is causing server to lagg and crash. Why does it even exist, get rid of it!

    For everyone who is upgrading from 16.9, just replace the .jar file with new one.
    1. RoboMWM
      Author's Response
      Yea I hear you, restorenature needs constant maintenance as mojang adds new biomes and blocks, which is why this will be an addon's responsibility in version 20. If you can report any stacktraces to the github issue tracker so we can track down some of the hang issues that'd be appreciated!

    Version: 16.9
    Love the plugin as always and am VERY happy to see that it is still being maintained for the latest builds of spigot as well as moving forward to 1.13 in a shockingly timely fashion. Sadly forced to give it only 3 stars due to it having a bug that duplicates items via minecrafts give command and the give command in command block which results in a serious issue for me.
    If fixed I would be happy to next version higher star rating assuming no other issues are found. :D
    1. RoboMWM
      Author's Response
      Nobody's forced to limit the stars they give, but anyways, your issue that you reported 5 minutes before you made this review cannot be reproduced. So much for proper issue reports that involve communication...

    sadly some devs are dropping the support to fast for 1.12.x just cuz 1.13 in on the edge.. If people like me want to stay on 1.12 we need to use outdated versions.. 2 stats due 1.12 drop support
    1. RoboMWM
      Author's Response
      Hmm, maybe you could've asked about 1.12 support in the discussion thread instead? 16.8 is 100% compatible with 1.12.

    Version: 16.8
    Sadly, i dont like this plugin :(
    Why? Because of the following reasons:

    First: Its not plug and play --> Players can't just type ./claim and claim a chunk for a certain amount of points

    Second: Its pretty damn hard to configure.. And why the **** do players need to place a chest? Maybe u can add a special block (White Concrete with a special name?) If players place that special block they have one chunk claimed.. AND /claim borders that shows the borders of a claim with particles..

    Third: One nice thing though is that 1.13.1 and 1.13 support is there. Much plugins are broken in 1.13.(1) and this one is'nt

    Now if u can fix all this things i'll give 5 stars! ;-)
    1. RoboMWM
      Author's Response
      Wish your review wasn't a threat to add features... and knowing how most of these "I'll rate 5 stars after 'fixing' whatever," it probably won't (and hasn't) happened...

      1) they can type /claim, maybe you should've asked in discussion thread? Also it automatically informs players anyways.
      2) When players have enough resources for a chest, they likely have stuff worthy of being protected. Concrete doesn't make a lot of sense..? (And is a relatively new block, this plugin is nearly 7 years old.)
      3) Particles are planned, check or suggest on issue tracker...

      Again, feature requests and questions belong in the thread, since you obviously can't reply to my review response

    best version ever, works fine on 1.13.1.

    is it possible to make an gui for grievprevention with a major update or generelly put gui functions on it? would be great :) If not, it will also be an awesome plugin. thank you for bringing me this to prevent grief :3
    1. RoboMWM
      Author's Response
      Sounds like a great idea for an addon, since most MC "GUI"s require a bit of work to maintain without issues.

    No "how-to" at all, players don't know and I don't know how tu use this plugin (how to create a protection?!) - no tutorial at all...
    1. RoboMWM
      Author's Response
      Reviews are not for support.
      There are definitely builtin howto's that appear when you join and as you build outside a claim.
