I have noticed that over the last few days (and looking at the forums, the last several months) there have been numerous complaints about various issues within the 1.8.8 Prison Server that have yet to be resolved. I will go over them, as well as suggested ways to fix the ones I know how to fix so that they are documented. Concern 1: The lag on the server. This could be caused by a few things. The first one is that there may not be enough RAM dedicated to this server. There are major lag spikes whenever the mines reset. The second reason that this could be happening is the numerous Holographic Displays scattered throughout the server. I have been staff on servers in the past and have found that the Holographic Displays plugin causes lag due to the way the plugin is handled by the server. One easy way this could be handled is to add the information from the Holographic Displays in the /help command and to remove the plugin. Concern 2: Permissions and rank issues. I have noticed several players that have purchased ranks in the past that have joined the Prison server and not have their rank carry over to this server. This is likely a permissions plugin configuration issue. In order for the ranks to easily carry over to all servers, the same database would need to be used. I do know that there are some commands that are used on some servers and not others, and those can be a bit tricky to deal with. My suggestion is to switch to a plugin called Luckperms and to set up a single database for all of the servers. they have a way to set certain permissions for some servers and not others. Concern 3: Voting and crates. There are also issues with the voting system on this server. Absolutely no vote crate keys were given today when I voted, only $15,000 per vote. More to be added. My brain just isn't working at the moment.
