Hey, I've been having dilemma over this for a while now... After looking around on the internet, I'm even more confused than before, because people do these things so many different ways. If someone could tell me what the best way to go about doing this would be, that would be great. I want a YML file (it can be in the JAR itself or in the plugin's folder) which has data on banned players. I understand how to use YML files just fine, how to save them and all... but there are so many methods on creating and accessing them that I can't wrap my head around it. What would be the best way to create this file in the onEnable method? I've seen people use Bukkit's resources as well as people using java.io.File. Bukkit's resources seem to center around having a single config, however. Any help is much appreciated. EDIT by Moderator: merged posts, please use the edit button instead of double posting.
