So, one of the tensions we always seem to have is the desire to build close and show off to each other, and the desire to not get griefed. We tried Towny, but it was a bit... flaky. In my opinion, it was also too complicated for what we really wanted: base protection.
With all that in mind, I've been looking at updated (1.10 compatible) protection plugins. These range from the very simple "place a block, it's yours" style plugins to "by the power of fifty commands, I shall protect only my redstone!" Personally, I'm leaning towards keeping things fairly simple, but not so simple you can't share bases, etc.
I've found a few possibilities, but would like feedback or suggestions from you guys, as well.
