    Hey guys, I'm pretty stumped by this bug that I've just introduced to my plugin. It would appear that I have more than one thread running, however, I don't believe that I do. Is there any nice way to double check? I might mention that I'm using the Bukkit's scheduler in some parts of the code but I make it a point to only use scheduleSyncDelayedTask() and scheduleSyncRepeatingTask(), neither of which should be spawning off any threads.. right?

    My bug surfaces when I'm trying to do some cleanup where I iterate through an array list of Sign blocks and one by one try to remove them from my list and set them back to air.

    for(Block signBlock : signBlocks)
    Any help would be greatly appreciated because this bug is driving me nuts trying to figure it out..

  2. if signBlocks is modifed while in use, like looping unless whit an iretator, then it does that,
    fixed code:
    1. //ferrybig start
    2. Iterator<Block> itr = signBlocks.iterator();
    3. while(itr.hasNext())
    4. {Block signBlock = itr.next
    5. //ferrybig end
    6. signBlock.setType(Material.AIR);
    7. //ferrybig start
    8. itr.remove();
    9. }
    10. //ferrybig end

    This happens when you work with threads. I believe you can just use a try and catch, because in my experience the intended action happened but also with an error. You can also try to use :
    for(Block signBlock : signBlocks)
    Just some suggestions.

    Thank you so much, you have no idea :)

    Just so I can understand this a bit better, is the arraylist signBlocks being changed somewhere else in the code (in another thread maybe?) while I'm trying to reset these blocks back to air? I guess I'll have to go back and fix a bunch of my other loops now too.

    Thanks again!

    This doesn't have anything to do with threading, ferrybig has the right answer. You can't remove items from a list while iterating over it (unless you use an Iterator).
