    a week.....
    if(event.getMaterial() == Material.TNT) {
    if(event.getAction() == Action.RIGHT_CLICK_BLOCK) {
    //do stuff
    } else {
    if(event.getMaterial() == Material.LAVA) {
    if(event.getAction() == Action.RIGHT_CLICK_BLOCK) {
    //do stuff
    And i don't suggest releasing a plugin like this. It's been done so many times before. soooooo many.

    Just let him learn, for christ's sake. "Doh ho ho! Look at me, I've coded plugins before! I'll show him that it'll take 2 seconds for me, just so I can be a douche bag!"

    Everybody starts somewhere. Hell, we've all been there. Lay off the guy, and let him learn at his own pace.

    I literally helped him. He should look more into bukkit, then tutorials FOR bukkit. Instead he was given a code which will probably change his life.

    My ass. You responded with a smart-ass tone, from the first 2 words: "a week..."
    He never mentioned that he wanted help (or spoon feeding, for that matter). If he needed it, then sure, it'd be great to help him. But you just threw a chunk of code at him, and implied that it was ridiculous for him to say it would take him a week. Let him try to figure stuff out on his own, and in the event that he has trouble, then we can come and help him.

    And even then, try to give explanations if he's very new to plugins. What you just gave him could/could not be pure gibberish to him. What if he isn't even sure how to set up a listener? Do you know if he'd even be able to place the code chunks in the right place?

    I'm coming off as a pretentious ass, I do realize this...but you need to let him try and figure stuff out on his own. When you just throw code at newbies, you end up getting people with developer status, that have no appreciation for fetching stuff from the API, and no appreciation for problem solving. I'm not going to throw any names out there, but I can think of two that come to mind immediatly.

    In any case, I've had a very, very bad day...and probably need to stop attacking my keyboard. I hope atleast some of this has made sense, instead of coming off as an incohesive rant.
