PlotSquared v5
PlotSquared released a major update, and I'm happy to finally put it on our server! It comes jam packed with a ton of bug fixes, and new features on top of it. Now, with any new plugin and major revamp - there may be new problems that crop up. If you run into anything regarding plots or the plot worlds, please bring it up with me ASAP! I will go ahead and throw all the new features in a spoiler below, since its pretty long.

I know things have been slow currently, and I apologize for this! I am still currently taking care of my grandmother so my free time is pretty tight. I have given another staff member access so he can take some of the workload off from me, and we have been making some nice headway to finish up the server! I'm quite excited to release this, and I hope everyone is excited to be there! I hope you all understand the predicament I'm in, and again I do apologize for the delay. I wasn't expecting all of this to happen and a lot has changed drastically in a short period.​
