  1. Hello SpigotMC,
    I see alot of big server like for an Example "arcane.cc" use more than 16 characters in their scoreboard. I never really specified on scoreboards and i have no clue on how they do it. Can anybody please help / Explain?

    They use scoreboard teams to accomplish this. The way they do this is adding each of the scoreboard entries to their own team with the first 16 characters being the team's prefix, the next 16 characters being the scoreboard entries name and the final 16 characters being the team's suffix. It is quite simple in idea, but has some very annoying side effects that have to be managed that makes it difficult to implement.
