    not.

  • [Change] Leaf Decay is re-enabled

  • [Change] MOTD and /help is updated to account for Discord and voting

    but I feel it breaks both anarchy and vanilla minecraft and thus doesn't fit

    on the server.

  • [Update] Various plugins

12/1/2020

  • [Fix] Entry fees and cooldowns were incorrectly applied to players traveling

    to worlds naturally. This has been fixed. Fees and cooldowns should only apply

    to commands.

  • [Fix] Voting giving perks to %player_name% rather than the actual player and thus failing.

  • [Change] Advancements & Death messages re-enabled

  • [Change] Reduced Debug Info re-disabled. I hate to disable this but it does

    no good as I have no way to disable coordinates from hacked clients and most

    hacked clients if I kept it enabled.

    the normal behaviour.
