    One thing that has always confuzzled me is why there are no plugins to prevent advertising. Whether it be a stupid server that nobody has ever heard of or a youtuber that's spamming his channel, you'll usually find at least a few if you check all the hub and skywars lobbies.

    Suggestion:
    Add the following to the anti-swear plugin;
    .com , .net , .uk , .nl , .es , .tv , .dj
    (Maybe more if any others are used)
    Also, add a list of plugins that will provide the user links to certain parts of the forums and store via their chat box.
    A few examples include:
    /Website = https://www.cubecraft.net/
    /Appeals = https://appeals.ccgn.co/
    /Stats = https://stats.cubecraftgames.net/
    /buy = http://store.cubecraft.net/
    /apply = https://www.cubecraft.net/forums/staff-applications.54/
    /news = https://www.cubecraft.net/forums/News/
    /Report = https://www.cubecraft.net/forums/report-a-player.24/
    /Twitter = https://twitter.com/CubeCraftGames
    /Youtube = https://youtube.com/ccgn
    /Twitch = http://www.twitch.tv/ccgn
    /Music = https://plug.dj/cube-craft-games

    What's the point of this? Not only does it cut down on advertising (which lets face it, most are spam-bots which are almost as annoying as people asking for OP chests) but it also makes jobs of the staff easier. Rather than having to find an actual url for somebody asking for perhaps the appeals website link, you could just tell them to type /Appeals :)

    This will cut down a lot on advertising, but then it won't be possible to share YT videos :( I like the idea though

    Also plug.dj is no more xd

    Donors cannot share youtube videos in-game anyways usually, due to the colour codes that will screw up the URL. Here's a part of the URL of the video that I'm watching currently;
    upload_2015-10-1_20-32-31.png
    The &l will make half the URL bold and will stop it from working, so you can't really share videos anyways unless you're a stone.

    Usually they're very spammy and aren't really relevant to the server. If you want to share links with your friends, surely skype or the forums would be more appropriate places?

    Farewell plug.dj.. you won't be missed :(

    But very rarely do you ever need to send a real link, and if it's related to the server then you can use the commands.

    This needs to be added. It would be very helpful and a lot easier than having to find the link.
