first of all dont go to bed i still need help
also dcool next time u do that again please tell us before u do it cause im getting kind of confused and pissed that i cant continuously work on one thing without it stopping server
however, i do agree with homemade, a public server with regulars as mods will be much better than a whitelist server IMO. more people will be able to experience how awesome this server is and then decide to join if they can play it, instead of by word of mouth.
# alloweditems - A whitelist of allowed items for use in /item - [Leave it empty, or add wool]
# itemspawnblacklist - A blacklist of items that can't be spawned (IE. Things like bedrock, lava, water, etc). Add IDs seperated by a comma. - [8,9,10,11,46,51,66 http://minecraftwiki.net/wiki/File:DataValuesV110.png]
# save-homes - If set to false it will no longer save homes. [Set true if you want players to set their own /home]
Also, don't make any kits. It's best to people make their own tools etc.
It has usergroups - permissions.
