This isnt really technical support, but I'd like to ask anyways. My big question is: which bukkit permissions system is better: PermissionsEx(PEX) or Groupmanager.

If you didn't know already, Groupmanager and PermissionsEx are plugins on bukkit. What do they do? Well they allow you to make ranks, and in each rank you can allow and deny commands. You can also make prefixes and suffixes. Prefixes are what appear before your name when you chat. For example on paul's server, players in the "new" group have the prefix [New] in green.

Now my next question (this is for you server owners) which is better: PermissionsEx or Groupmanager?

PermissionsEx:
pros:
- fast and easy to use
- multiworld support
- supports lots of plugins
- chatmanager, modifyworld
- only one permissions file

cons:
- more typing
- more likely to make errors

GroupManger:
pros:
- beginner friendly
- multiworld support
- lots of other plugins, including essentials support
- all essentials commands in globalgroups
- globalgroups.yml file
- towny built-in support
- less typing

cons:
- separate users and groups file
- random errors?
- more typing for making prefixes

I would say bPermissions.

Pros: The b stands for banana.

Cons: Not easy to set a group for a player in all worlds.

But if you were choosing between PEX and groupmanager, which one would you pick? And i will consider bpermissions also.

Probably PEX because of the bad rep GroupManager has. They are all the same really when you get used to one.

o btw it depens on how many player your goon have on your server if it's like 5 then you should take group manger
if it is like 30-200 then you should have permissionsEX :D

Ok what exactly is PEX. I have heard of it but does it manage who can use certain commands.

Based on results, I am going to use PEX. But what if I have a 24 slot server, should I use bPermissions or PEX? And what does paul use?

You should use PEX, and I believe Paul uses it too. If you need help with PEX, just ask me. :)

It really doesn't matter about how big your server is. It just matters on how you feel about each plugin.

I would say GroupManager because PEX is way too confusing and cant be done in game.
I hate chickens. I like ducks. I love turtles :D

My only problem with PEX now is that I am a horrible typer and I always get something not lined up. I usually fix it, but I wish PermissionsEx had GlobalGroup support implemented.

I like PEX I was new at running servers when I found it and found it pretty easy to use if you just read the example. So I like it the best, it has a good, well organized file setups and is just good to use. :P

It actually can be. There is even a plugin that makes simpler commands for you to use in game.

I've used GroupManager in the past. It is actually very easy and functional if you do everything right. I haven't had an error before.
