I have allot of past experience with Permissions 2.x and 3.x but they don't seem to be to compatible with 1.8 and re limiting. I m thinking of moving to Permissions EX but I have no knowledge of this plugin. I still have yet to write the permissions for my new server The Elder Scrolls: Minecraft so I am starting from scratch. Do you think t s worth the switch?
I use it. Im telling you its great! You can /pex user (blah) promote or demote! u can make groups without going on a yml file by using the server cmd thing... .bat thing. Its great and i have proof too! .. HE APPROVES!
I recently (just over a month ago) switched to PEX and I am loving it! I have used GroupManager, Permissions 2 and 3, PermissionsBukkit, and bPermissions all for a couple months but various things made me switch. So far all is good with PEX!
