    We switched over to PermissionsEx instead of Privileges, which required file conversion. I think that all the data, which were a few hundreds of thousands of user records, carried over succesfully.

    If you encounter problems such as commands not working while they should, wrong prefixes, wrong rank, or anything unusual. Please report the problem to this thread or to me personally. Thanks!

    Any reason why we switched over? Problems with Privileges?

    Privileges doesn't have UUID support, which would be a real pain in the ass if name changing ever would be available. It also lacks useful features we could use in the future, such as support for mysql.

    The server is still on 1.7.10.
    Because of a lot of plugins we don't know if it's compatible with 1.8. We (the developers) are figuring out which plugins are working atm.

    Can confirm. You now need to use /pex promote or /pex demote. Congrats @Lady_Of_Rohan, you should now be a guide <3

    OB' s can break stuff on plotworld.
    It' s not a problem on main because of the job plugin, but if they are demoted while they are offline and log back on on plotworld they could go on a griefing spree.

    Needs to be fixed, but the enforcer suite will also fix it.

    To join our servers, you must have a Minecraft version from 1.7.2 to 1.7.10. You must have a paid Minecraft account. Now, you can find the IPs of our servers in this page. The main server, where middle-earth is being built, is the Build server. Be sure to read the New Player Guide and later the Next Steps page, as they'll answer most of your questions about the server. It's very important to read the New Player Guide and the Terms of Service and Rules since to actually start building and exploring Middle-earth, you'll have to go through a quiz world whose answers can be found in those pages.

    If you have more questions, me and the rest of the Guides will always be in the build server, forums and TeamSpeak to help you.
