    Really really good but needs some things. I think this plugin would be the best rank plugin but only if it had a better dropdown menu for permissions just like luckperms.

    I've seen your plugin "PowerRanks" on spigotmc, it's fantastic!!!!!
    I'm a Chinese server owner using the plugin. Could you please allow me to translate your plugin and advertise it to MCBBS? Many Chinese server owners want a translated language file, and I can help them. You know not all of them are good at English, they can't read your post (Even with Google translator) they need a Chinese translator. I'll show them your spigotmc page and let them download the plugin here. I'll NEVER claim it as mine, I just wanna translate it and let more people know it. I'll NEVER leak the jar file.
    Hope for your reply!

    Support for this plugin is VERY fast and effective. This plugin works incredibly well, and the web editor is a very nice touch, and allows server admins who are inexperienced to setup an entire ranking system easily, and helps experienced admins make quick creations so that the harder stuff can be done quicker manually within the files.

    LOVE this plugin. The Dev team does an amazing job, keep up the good work!

    This is a really good plugin. I have occasionally had errors, but they got fixed quickly and I got support super fast. The dev is super active, and this plugin overall adds a good rank system with subranks and is very stable.

    So far so good. Though maybe I am reading something wrong, but I am unsure of how to have certain ranks be listed as better than others.

      PowerRanks does not care about rank order and sorting is not an option right now, as for the tab-list (player-list) sorting is not possible without the use of packets since that is sorted client-side.
