OK, I've posted the link over in his thread. Are the people you're ignoring in your own faction and using faction chat? That's the only way I can envision that happening. It's been asked about before, but... I don't use DynMap myself, and I'm not sure what all would be needed from Factions or from DynMap to make something like that happen. You can set it to a ridiculously high level that nobody could realistically reach. Easy for someone to just systematically go around claiming as much as he can that way, though. So to be clear, EssentialsChat's name coloring based on the user's permission group is not working for you? I'll check with Essentials 2.5.4 for any problems like that, though I don't think Factions is the cause. EDIT: tested Essentials 2.5.5 and confirmed the problem in it. I then removed Factions and restarted the server and the problem persisted, though, so it's definitely not related to Factions. I then checked the Essentials release notes, which mention a new "add-prefix-suffix" option in the Essentials config.yml file; I'm pretty sure it defaults to false. I then confirmed that it was the cause. So there you go. Are you using the Permissions plugin, or Bukkit's built-in permission system? Are other permissions working for you? You've added factions.disband permission to your group, or alternately factions.*? Not sure what to suggest. There are currently no hooks implemented for tracking that info, and I've never looked into firing custom events for Bukkit so far, so I'm not sure what that might entail. A hook for getting a list of of members in a specified faction is certainly possible. /f disband <faction tag> 1. The only thing that should be from Factions is that people cannot be hurt by PvP damage while in their own territory unless the other player is in an enemy faction. Also, of course people cannot be damaged by PvP or monsters while in a safe zone. 2. "prefixAdmin" and "prefixMod" in conf.json. Might happen at some point. No, but somewhat related: There will be an option to set a maximum power cap for all factions in the next release, thanks to a donation from Magesblood to make it happen.
