I have a small server of about 10 active users. Many of the users would like to see chest locking and, and they love Waypoint Plugin. Right now my permisisons.yml file is blank, and i have been giveing all users OP but I would like to stop doing that. I also would like to implement things that need to use permissions like shops and world guard.. I have read so many posts, but there is so much information out there about permissions diving into it is bit overwhelming. I read the permissions FAQ but it to is confusing because it uses generic examples of file structures not real examples of real mods in use. So, what i want to know is 1) what permissions system is the most supported, what jar files will I need to load that system 2) What are the nodes to mimic op commands such as kick, and ban. 3) I don't want to just grant the * node otherwise stuff like check locking ould be useless as people would have the override ability. 4) I want it to be SUPER easy once I setup the standard groups to add people to those groups. Is there a good system that includes and easy in game method to add or remove players from groups? I think I understand how to add nodes to groups when I add new plugins but I really fel uncomfortable and would appriciate a bit of help breaking the ice. I would also like to see good examples of colored prefixes. Is there an example of accepted color codes anywhere? I read about the default groups permissions but I have seen on many plugins that say one way or the other that they either support Permissions or GroupManager. I also saw details about a bridge system to default permissions .. Do I need one or all of them to make my several most compatible with as many permisisons as possible? Like I said I am a bit overwhelemed with the amount of information. Sometimes it helps me to put blinders on and take a straight path. Whereshould I get started? The most impotant of all issues to get answered for me would be if I am to deop most the people I really need to know how to mimic those commands for those that still need the access.
