There’s a typo in your title. The plugin is called ‘PermissionSex’. Jeez, don’t you know anything?


Because permission resolution isn’t implemented yet silly

Only on April 1st


Well then. Insert overused Lenny face here.

@zml Glad to see PEX move over to sponge too, its an essential.

I’m talking about the Bukkit version.

What on earth gives you the idea that this is the appropriate location to report bugs with the Bukkit version? These are the sponge forums.


I kek’d. Really hard.

I <3 you pex :smiley:. All my servers use pex :blush:.

Stop trying to modify permissions.yml and starting use /pex group admin add *.


I guess yous are throwing out YML then as well as it is a “Pain in the backside” to say it polity.

Just in case that was question. Can’t tell.

Wow thats awesome. Which sponge build you are using? Last update broke the commands again :frowning:.

Any way to get a hold of this? Trying to compile it results in a few dependency errors for the SpongeAPI.

yeah, there are a few API changes that have happened that have broken PEX. I’m going to update it once I finish the SpongeAPI commands PR I’m working on.

I would love you forever if you include PostgreSQL support in the SQL backend. :smiley:

I hope to have the SQL queries be abstract enough for that to work.

Out of curiosity: Do you plan to use an abstraction layer like JOOQ or do you want to actually write your JDBC statements in a way that will work on all (well, sort of) databases?
