So apparently Votifier went down for the past two days due to someone messing with IPTables and not saving them *cough* Tims *cough*.
To give everyone a fair chance, all players who have participated in the contest on any day will earn 40 points on top of what they already have. And I'm going to remove all entries from today/yesterday in the Voting category as those are the days affected.
Hello plebeians of Timcraft, I hope you're ready for this contest because it starts NOW.
How it works is as follows:
You complete tasks on the server, and the people who complete the most of a given task each day are awarded a set amount of points. When the contest ends, the people with the most awarded points from each category (and possibly an overall winner) will get their rewards.
So instead of getting the plugin that needed to be done for the competition, I spent my day rewriting a plugin I built a while ago called "RegionModule".
What this plugin does, is it allows us to let you make your own protections while still maintaining some sort of assuredness that we're not having useless protections being made and that players aren't overlapping others.
Anyhow, the big changes are as follows:

/namecolor has been changed to be of more use to players
You can now have up to 2 awaiting protections (subject to change)
So now to explain how the new /protect command works:

Tonight* should usher in our new contest, one that you do not want to miss out on.
This contest will involve being an active member on the server, and it will run between tonight* and the release of the 1.3 Release Candidate.
The reward will be great. I will not be detailing the reward until we smooth out the finer points of this contest, but I can promise you a custom badge on the forums alongside whatever we've already cooked up.
Look out in the near future for the full details of this contest. For now, sit tight.
*Assuming I stop being lazy and finish the plugin that we need to facilitate this contest
P.S. For the people that won the contest a while back "Design your own plugin" or whatever, I apologize for not handing out the rewards or the badges on the forum. Contact me in private chat and I'll get to it right away, as well as upload the winning plugin to the server come 1.3.
